I don't know why I took this picture directly into the sun, I guess I just wanted to see how it would come out. Or if it would come out. You can still see some of the Colorado mountains.

I've always listened to my elders and never looked directly into the sun, so I had no idea that the sun is actually BLACK at the center. Fascinating.

I could have taken a cleaner picture with my better camera, but for some reason I wanted a Treo sunset picture. So here it is. Neat!

I'm a bit surprised that there's no pixel blooming on that image. I suspect the treo has a CMOS imager rather than CCD; I don't think they bloom like CCDs.

I guess the image processing thinks 255,255,255 = -1.

I have no idea what those letters mean; I'm a point-and-shoot kinda gal. But I do agree with your final statement, if you mean my camera translated extrememly brighter than bright into BLACK. Because that part makes sense.

Thanks! Yes indeed, me too. I'll plan on calling you sometime tomorrow night, if the time difference doesn't throw me off like it did this evening. (:

I was reading a post on bad_sex (very funny and scary stuff there) and the person said they cross-posted it to bad_rennie_sex. My first thought was "That is pretty rude. Besides, I'm sure renniekins is far undeserving of that."

And then I saw the number of members and thought you might be skipping some interesting details in your LJ. Then I noticed it is for bad Renaissance Faire encounters.

Just thought you might get a giggle out of that :)

Ack! It's not true, they're spreading vile rumors about me!

Yep, defintiely made me laugh. I've seen the term "rennie" used for rennaissance faire people, but I've never approved. I think they're just copying! (;
