Today, I took Glass with me for a run to try the Strava Running app. However, I forgot to take my phone with me. The Stava Running app kept time, but wasn’t updating GPS data. That was when I realized I left my phone at home. I still had some limited functions. I was able to take the photo above.
One disappointing thing. In the image, you can barely see the bridge. I was about 200 yards from it and I think it really made the scene. However, without a zoom on Glass, I didn’t realize it would not be visible. I also wanted to use the Vignette function, but without my phone, I decided to save it for another image.
Below is another image I considered for today.
For the last few years I’ve read blogs of different people starting a goal of taking and posting a photograph every for the entire year. Each year, I think this would be a good challenge for me, but it never works because I don’t carry a camera with me frequently enough. Again this year, I was considering this, when it hit me, I now have Google Glass! So, this blog is going to serve two-fold. I am going to post a photograph take #throughglass everyday for the next year. I will also use this blog to post general observations about Glass as I learn how to use it especially in my Flipped Classroom.
The photo above is of my dog Nico. There will probably be a lot of photos of him throughout the year. Even though Glass takes quick pictures, it was difficult to get him to stay still for this photograph.
