I Got Myself A Google ‘Pixel 5’ To Replace My 13-Month Old ‘Pixel 4’ & I Continue Using ‘Google Fi’ As My Carrier.

by Anura Guruge



First & so far ONLY Picture With My Google Pixel 5.
Straight out of my ‘office’ window.


Though I still take as many pictures as ever, & post at least 7-a-day, I have basically stopped using a dedicated camera — though I still have two ‘new’ Panasonics.

So, if my phone has become my camera THEN I have to stay on top of camera technology. While I appreciate that the Pixel 5 did NOT offer much of an upgrade re. the camera, it is still new camera hardware & software. Plus, Google gives me a 24-month, 0% APR deal.

PLUS, I wanted to go back to a fingerprint reader!

2020 was a REAL bad year to have ‘face recognition‘! Why? Masks!

After saying that setting up the fingerprint reader was one of the few hiccups with the new phone. I finally managed but it took quite a few tries.

I also had trouble downloading the ‘Google Fi‘ APP from the ‘Google Play Store’. Other than that, it was a breeze.

Impressed.

So far, so good.

Actually bought TWO Pixel 5s — one for one of my daughters too.

TWO GOOD Pictures Of Comet NEOWISE (i.e., C/2020 F3), July 24, 2020, Over New Hampshire As It Bids Farewell.

This was the 4th time I got to see Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3).

I also saw it last Friday (July 17), this Monday (July 20) & this Tuesday (July 21).

Wow. It is fading fast! Yes, still naked-eye visible & I saw it within seconds of getting out of our Nissan van. But. I was in ‘total’ darkness. No ambient light.

This time I had my ‘new’ Panasonic ZS200 all set up for a 10″ exposure & even tripod mounted. Much easier if you do this at home.

It will cease to be naked-eye within days. It is hurtling away.

With my ‘new’ Panasonic ZS200. First time I had used it with a tripod & on manual exposure. Worked it out, in the fly, in the dark, in the back of our Nissan van.

I was on my own — this being Tuesday night. We had also seen it on Friday & Monday. They felt that they had seen ENOUGH!

Glad I went out.

Today, was a total washout.

Weather permitting I will be back again Thursday — when it will be closest to us.

Seeing it was SPECIAL. Really made me happy.

Look closely at #1. That is my 14-year old daughter who has been scrambling up these rocks, each year, for the last 7-years.

I had NOT planned on doing this — i.e., the flowers — on a daily basis. Never did in the past. But, some of you seem to really like them. They, i.e., the flowers, have quite a little following. So, I am happy to PLEASE. Enjoy. Smile.

Not much I can do, with words, to embellish these pictures. They tell a pretty good story on their own. I lucked out AGAIN today. Another route, different flowers. And I share. Enjoy. Smile.
