I take more photos with my cell phone than I used to. Here's why...
1) These days, the main reason I grab my phone when I leave the house, is to track my steps. My goal is 10,000 steps a day. DJan is snickering (she's too nice to guffaw) since she probably gets 20,000 a day - uphill. I don't always make it, but some days I surpass it - 13,841 steps last Saturday! The good news: cell phones can underestimate steps by around 20 percent. So, a camera-in-hand means more photos.
2) For God's sake, I need to carry my phone so I don't miss an email from Athleta or Barnes and Noble. Sigh. Phone = photos.
3) Blog Stats. Yes, you heard me right. Actually, you probably aren't hearing this at all, because you're not visiting. Or worse, visiting, but not reading. That's why I keep my posts short. I don't like admitting that my stats are down, but on the other hand, it isn't a good use of my time to try to fix the problem. But what I can do, is spend less time blogging. I take more photos with my phone and skip the fancy editing. Now, I simply upload posts right from my phone. Or photo edit on the fly with my laptop while traveling. The days of photoshop are dwindling.
Today, I uploaded this group of rejects and stragglers, right from my camera roll: Cell phone Costa Rica...
Apparently, this Great Curassow is a farmer's market pet. Somewhere, around Dominical.
A fried avocado and shrimp salad at PorQueno? in Dominical.
A coati at the front door in Playa Flamingo. (at the Happier House)
Cows on the lam in the hills over the Osa Peninsula. If you're ever driving in Central America, (we've done it twelve years running) and a vehicle flashes its lights as they pass, a hazard is in the road ahead. That happened to us here. Morris code for: Cows in the Road!
The view at PorQueno?
The only flamingos you'll find in Playa Flamingo. (because it's named for the pink sand)
Inflatables in Jaco.
Sangria at Iguana Lodge. Yum!
I love this photo. Dogs in Puerto Jimenez.
Playa Flamingo pool. Sigh.
Stay tuned for my last two Costa Rica posts from our 2019 trip...
