How To: Make an Awesome Small Footprint, Can't Fail Garden

created at: 06/07/2011

This is my backyard. All of it. A roughly 4 x 4 1/2 ' patch of gravel and clay.

I think even the most blackest of thumbs can recognize that nothing's gonna grow in that soil. But, that's not okay with me. I want a garden. I want to be able to just walk out of my door, and grab fresh herbs, greens, and produce when I'm preparing meals. I want to participate in my food.

The World's Best iPhone Photography

created at: 06/06/2011I carry my iPhone with me wherever I go, and often, my DSLR and at least two lenses. I often use my phone's camera for taking notes, quick photos to send to Twitter, etc, but I still like having the dials, controls, and depth-of-field provided my actual camera...

My heavy, bulky, likely unnecessary camera.

At least, so says Objective Scenes, a "a group blog dedicated to the art of mobile photography. All pictures are shot and edited exclusively on mobile devices (iPhones, Android, etc)."… read more
