Went bowling Thursday night. Used the Pano app to take a picture at Boulevard Bowl. The Pano app lets you take six horizontal photos, and stitches them together.
Click on the image for a bigger version. Click on the bigger version for a bigger version. The app works well and the camera on the phone takes pretty good pics.
Saw this “One in 8 Million” on the NY Times today, they played it up on their home page. Nice collaboration of audio and photo. As you might suspect (good titles are amazing, huh), it’s one person from the 8 million among the Gotham population.
Street musicians have good stories. From my handful of NY subway encounters, the street musicians are typically really good musicians and/or entertainers. The image above is from a street musicians’ interview.
The Oklahoman’s Michael Kimball posted a video last night also using only photo and audio. Completely different subject matter and tone. But still engaging.
Matthew Gene Fox had plenty to say to reporters who visited him Thursday at the Tarrant County jail. Fox, 17, suspected in the Saturday night stabbing death of his girlfriend’s father, Leroy Herrera, 41, admitted the killing but said it was self-defense.
Fox said he was hiding in his girlfriend’s closet when her father came in and “began yelling at her.”
Fox said Herrera asked, “Who are you?” and “I told him, ‘Don’t worry about it. If you’re going to hit somebody, hit me. Don’t hit a girl.’
“He’s like, ‘What are you going to do about it?’ Come on, hit me, hit me,” Fox said.
The Oklahoman’s Penny Cockerell filed the story. You can watch the video here:
I grabbed a few of the photos The Oklahoman shot in Picher, Okla., today and put them into this video. They do great work.
The Oklahoman’s photographers tell the story through their lens.
Our friends from The Oklahoman’s photo department are on the scene of flooding in Guthrie. The photo staff multitasks on assignments, often reporting from the scene by phone or email while taking still photos and video. Their efforts with a video camera provide a reach of content few can match.
We rely on still photos a lot in our videos. Still images provide that moment in time that works well in a video timeline. It’s also a strength of ours and makes good business sense to rely on your core strengths.

Flickr, the popular online photo hosting site, has added video capabilities.
