    For last nights eclipse I tried a novel approach to recording it, I used my iPhone with and old Meade ETX scope I've had knocking around the house to come up with this. It won't win any astrophoto prizes, but it got over a 100 likes on my Instagram account!

    I like the way the bands of the colors of the flowers match the tail light colors.

    Another fun iPhone moment, Andy Warhol's 'Art Car' is on display at Paris Photo LA over this weekend. If you're in the LA area, and into photography, this is an absolute must see layout, the entire 'Streets of NY' set on the Paramount lot has been turned into a massive photo show.

    Random opportunistic iPhone images

    I went searching for an i8, but only found about 20+ i3s at BMW of SF.

    I hear you, but gotta keep up with the new stuff! Back to the originally scheduled program... Here's a typical city street after it snows. Don't even think of parking on the side streets when the patio furniture is outside.

    Nice! No rain? Keeping my z8 indoors this weekend. Was supposed to take my Porsche out on the track at Sonoma today, but cancelled due to rain.

    That was Wednesday. Rain didn't hit til Friday. By that time, she was back in the garage hiding. HAGWE.

    The Best Camera is the One You Have With You When You Need One

    Here are a few of my favorite Bimmer pictures taken in the recent past with nothing more than an iPhone.

    1) My 14 year old (50K mile) garage queen under a solar panel by UT-Dallas that tracks the sun during the day.

    2) A M1 with 5 cameras in the GoPro booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month

    3) An i8 in my driveway. This is undoubtedly the fastest street-legal car I've ever driven. Dig the carbon fibre, but got to get over the fact that it's a hybrid that makes fake engine noise.

    4) A comparison of ugly butts on Bimmers that were not designed by Chris Bangle.

    5) A carbon fiber X5 near the Tokyo Fish market, ready to haul Ahi (or something).

    Wings & Wheels in Dallas

    One of my favorite car shows. Invite only, in the shade of a hangar, tasty buffet, open bar, swag bag and nice "jet set" crowd. And what could make it more complete than a pair of 8s?

    A Drive in the Park

    On Sunday afternoon, I decided to putt-putt through the park across the street from my house to check out some Texas wildflowers and take a nature shot of Z-ACHT with my iPhone. We've had plenty of rain here, and the lakes look good. God blessed Texas.

    While I was out, I thought about swinging by the Garland convention center, about 4 miles away, to get another shot with a modern architecture backdrop. It's a nice building, and besides that, I'd heard they were having a cartoon art show over there, and of course, I appreciate works of art. Should have gone. Missed my chance to record some unanticipated performing art - by the Garland police department. Like I said, God blessed Texas.

    I am in a very hot and humid Switzerland this week. The owner fired up the 912 and one could tell that it had "a little work done" to the engine. Today there was a Lambo and a Ferrari parked out front of the hotel.

    SUV Prototype in San Francisco

    Spotted this SUV with a Michigan plate wrapped in black plastic to hide its identity merging into traffic. Based on the tail lights, backup sensors and what looked to be fake tailpipes my guess is this is an electric Mercedes SUV...

    Cool spot! How could you tell the tail pipes were fake?

  53. #203
    I had the advantage of waiting at the traffic light next to this car, and when I glanced over the tail pipes just didn't look or feel right to me. I may be reading too much into it, but why bring a car to SF for testing unless you need the expertise of the folks here with electric self driving cars?

    First time seeing a Z8?

    One would think that this is not the first time these cows have seen a Z8 on this dirt road in Iowa, but maybe they haven't looking at their faces...
