Ok, I recently got a new Blackberry Bold at work, and Caryn just got an iPhone for Christmas.
So, this is, in order a picture of the iPhone taken with the Bold, then that picture on the Bold screen taken with the iPhone, then the iPhone with that picture up taken with the Bold. Then, just because I felt it needed a little more depth, I did it one more time, taking a picture of the bold with the iPhone and the the iPhone with the bold.
So it's Bold -> iPhone -> Bold -> iPhone -> Bold -> iPhone.

Turner Falls in south central Oklahoma earlier this month.
Just as a contrast, take a look at Tim Tillinghast's excellent shot of the falls during a flooding period here.
I have to say, growing up in Oklahoma, I remember the falls being a lot closer to Tim's picture than mine. But, of course, there is no such thing as "global warming", right Senator Inhoff?

We love our dog sitter. Shura is talented and generous, and every Christmas, she finds new ways to make her clients adore her even more.
The last few years, she has been doing "doggy" wines with customized labels, and this year was no different.
Grrriesling!! How much do you love that?!?!?

Caryn and I were honored to be invited to the wedding of Anthony Demaria and his new gorgeous bride Arielle (nee Henry).
At the reception, Anthony favored the guests with a small concert. I've always known he was talented, but Tony's voice and overall stage presence has matured greatly since the last time I saw him. I got the impression that I was watching a superstar in action.
Mark my words -- I'll be able to point this picture to my grandchildren and say "I knew him -- I even went to his wedding!", and they will be impressed!

This picture was taken on our recent visit to the Big Apple.
Ladder 10, Engine 10 is the fire station nearest the location of the former World Trade Center in NYC. They were the first of the first responders on the scene, and a large number of these heros stationed in this location gave the ultimate sacrifice as they tried to save those around them.
Somewhere, up in Heaven, is a whole neighborhood of solid gold mansions for the firefighters and police that lost their lives that fateful day, and some of these guys have corner lots.

I love this pic. It may very well be the best picture I've ever had taken.
It was taken on the ship by our favorite ship's photographer, Andrea. She was, unfortunately, the one on duty when the backdrop fell on me, and I made it VERY clear to the ship that I didn't feel that she was at all at fault. I really hope I got my point across, since every pic she took of us was pure art.

Mervyns and I have a bit of history. When Caryn and I got married, we were a little cash strapped, and we ended up buying our wedding bands on credit at Mervyns. For a number of years, that was where we had credit, and that was where we bought a lot of our clothes.
We haven't shopped there in a while, which I guess is one of the reasons that they have fallen on hard times. As such, it is horribly sad to see them go away.
I'll miss them.

I promised it wouldn't become "Paul's Vacation Pictures", and so, I'm gonna stop with the daily cruise shots. I'll show a few from time to time when the picture taking gets slow, but it's back to local shots.
This one is REALLY local -- taken from my front porch looking across the street to Alta Loma park in South City. The night is very foggy, and I really like the way that the light dances off the fog and frames everything it enshrouds.
