Arch of Cabo San Lucas

I thought I’d keep with my theme of “rocks” from my last post. This is a photo from a trip to Mexico last Summer. I had to borrow my dad’s iPhone 6 to take the photo because I tragically left my iPhone 5 on the seat of the rental car before getting on the boat. The camera on the iPhone 6 is much better though, so it worked out well.

Don’t worry, I got my phone back after stressing for an hour that it may be stolen. Upon returning to Virginia, my phone then repaid me for my neglect by short-circuiting (I don’t know what actually happened) its own camera so that it no longer worked. I swiftly upgraded to the 6 just before moving to Japan. That’s Karma I suppose.


New Things in 2016

Well, the title almost rhymed.

Capitulum mitella “Japanese Goose Barnacle”

I took this on Himakajima, and island in Central Japan, not knowing what the hell it was. A fellow Instagrammer was able to tell me, and now I’m more intelligent because of it. And it’s all thanks to Steve Jobs. RIP.

When Instagram first became popular, I swore I would never join. Eventually I was convinced, and for the last year, I have been completely obsessed- my Facebook has been mostly abandoned.

(I would like to say that my computer autocorrected my mistyping of convinced to convicted and I am very glad that I heavily proofread these.)

Having spent a lot of time traveling, I have been honing my once nonexistent photography skills, and my Instagram is prettier than ever.

But, I’ve decided in this New Year, that I also want to begin sharing my photography on my blog, and am excited for this addition to Phil’nFree.

I hope you enjoy my photos, and if you do, I’ll take it as a positive sign to finally purchased a real camera to replace the abuse of my iPhone 6.

And to start, here is my first photo to officially share in 2016!!
