What is it about the camera on Blackberries that makes everything look so dismal and sallow? Is the iPhone camera really that much better? Until that day comes when I feel like plunking down a few bills for something that my daughter will inevitably immerse in liquid, I will continue documenting our heres and theres and where-to-fors through a lens, darkly. And dimly. And typically blurrily. And often without adequate light exposure.
So here’s what Anna’s done this fall so far, according to my phone picture library.
Amuse old people at street festival in North Carolina.
Amaze parents with ability to draw representational face on iPad. It’s like the toddler version of Werner Herzog’s The Cave of Forgotten Dreams.
Get a bike for second birthday, but also get a ride. It’s like the best of both worlds.
Amaze parents with ability to construct symmetrical edifices with blocks.
Eat a cookie.
Test out Halloween gear.
Test out macaroni and cheese and crayon selection at Zagat-reviewed eatery.
Wear Dora backpack. Non-stop.
Jump off log stumps in athletic inspired outfit.
Master Play-Doh 101.
Be the happiest kid in Boston.
Meet and befriend Bostonian bronze frogs.
Rep the Central Park Zoo in Beantown.
Check out marine mammals.
Get first umbrella, ever.
Eat pistachio gelato at Faneuil Hall. Chat with Dutch nationals.
Pick the perfect pumpkin.
Walk the plank.
Perfect pre-preschool posing.
Whew! It’s only halfway through fall. Can my Blackberry camera keep up? Can I? Can Halloween photos be far behind? (No).
