Thursday is Biker Chick Commute Day

The picture quality is terrible, but if you look closely you'll see that this isn't just a young woman riding a motorcycle, but that she's doing so in high heels. You don't see that every day...

did you take that with your phone?

Yeah, the quality would have been better, but I can only zoom in on Low quality.

how do you send a picture from your phone to the blog?

Blogger actually has a Mobile Blogging feature, but I don't use that.

I send my images to an online album on Verizon's website (there's an "Online Album" option on the phone itself), then from there, I save the image file locally to my hard drive. Then I re-upload it to Blogger as part of a post, and there you go.

It's more complicated than Mobile Blogging through Blogger, I know.

I'm guessing you have a camera phone? I don't remember whether you do or not...

Yeah, but I still have T-mobile, I'm guessing you don't.

I don't think it matters what service you have, as long as your phone can send a picture to an e-mail address.

I use a data cable to connect the phone to the PC,and then freeware BitPim to transfer the images from the phone, I was wondering why Stan just took her feet?

If I had zoomed out, there wouldn't have been a chance at seeing the high heels. The fact that she was in the sun made shadows right over her feet, and I didn't have a chance to snap a photo in the shade (the lights were all green again).

I've gone looking at several places for data cables to download my photos from the phone, but according to everyone I've talked to, apparently all they're good for with my model is transferring the phone book and other notes...

Stan -- check out the BitPim site -- http://bitpim.org/ -- it lists the phones it will work with -- if it can tranfer phonebook it should be able to transfer anything on the phone. You also have to download the drivers to setup the USB port for the connection but those are easy to find.

ps. I will send you $10 if you reverse that photo back the right way

I took a look at bitpim.org, but my phone model (Samsung A670) wasn't listed, as far as I could see.

You want the photo reversed? I'll do it, no charge.
