In my weekly post, “Fablon 45 cm x 15 m Roll Transparent, Glossy“, I like to include a photo of something that I’ve taken from the previous week.
There was a time when I’d put my original camera around my neck and go looking for things to take pictures of.

It’s funny how many more pictures that I feel inspired to take this way. And better ones too.
Anyway, last week I was rolling up the solar blanket to the pool and noticed a spider in this huge web over my shoulder. FABORY B39350.012.0150 Cotter Pin,Retaining,Ext. Prong,PK3800I watched for a minute until I realized what she/he was doing. The spider was traversing the web picking up the things that got caught during the night before.Fibre Glass-Evercoat FIB-789 2.5 Quarts Paint Mixing Cups My mind flashed back to elementary school science where we learned how a spider doesn’t get stuck in its own web.
I was pleased with the picture as I got as close as I could to get a definition of the spider and the things caught in the web. FABORY B39350.025.0250 Cotter Pin,Retaining,Ext. Prong,PK600As per my regular routine, I took 2 or 3 pictures of the same thing so that I could get the best picture lest I move the camera while taking the picture.
Anyway, that’s the background for this post!
When I write my Sunday post, my routine was to grab the camera on my desk and flip through what I had taken and find one to include. FABORY M01070.120.0050 M12-1.50 x 50 mm.

However, in my readings lately on Windows 10, I’ve been reading about the Your Phone abilities. For the most part, the writers were excited about the concept of texting from your computer keyboard. I wasn’t as excited. Fine Decor Milano 4 Plain Wallpaper pink gold (M95598)Could there be more?
Out of boredom, I installed this on my phone and activated the utility on my computer.

The menu revealed what was available.
And, sure enough, there were my spider pictures. FABORY M07820.160.0025 Set Screw,ST,M16 x 2mm,Dog,25mm,PK25(As well as the thunderstorm clouds coming in from Boblo Island)
To work on the post, there was none of this sending the picture to myself. I just grabbed it from the Your Phone app and bam, it was in my post.
I remember Arthur C. Clarke’s quote…
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
I had that moment!
I just wish that I’d done it sooner.
