Big Gary At Shaw’s Garden

Gary at Shaw's GardenAnd here is a picture of my eldest brother Gary, taken last month at the Missouri Botanical Garden, or Shaw’s Garden as the locals call it. Called that after Henry Shaw, who founded the garden and provided the land it now occupies in South St. Louis.

Anyway, this photo highlights the limitations of the camera phone’s abilities. Look at the edges of the image: the blurring and distortion is unmistakable. Not exactly a camera replacement. But then I never expected it to replace my current digital camera.

Speaking of the digital camera, I’m going on a hike later this afternoon and I think I’ll take the camera with me. Hopefully I can get some good photos of the hike and my destination.
