I drove out to Ventura on Saturday to see my friend Jon who is on the Warped Tour doing some promotion for Capitol Records and [absolutepunk.net](http://www.absolutepunk.net). The drive there was ridiculous… about 3 hours from Los Angeles to Ventura (only about 60 miles), as was parking (I ended up parking a mile away and walking) but I got there just in time to see one of my favorite bands from my high school days, [The Matches](http://www.thematches.com/). Last time I saw them was two years ago on the same stage at Warped Tour, which was cool. I also saw New Found Glory and Bad Religion, which were both great.
I also got a chance to test out (and show off) my iPhone. It was great for getting directions, figuring out where the hell I was, checking out traffic (which as I mentioned, was awful), and taking photos…
Here are a few photos from the day:
As you can see, the iPhone camera is quite good for a cell phone. The resolution isn’t high (2 megapixels), but it’s perfectly fine for photos destined for the web.
At first I took mostly portrait oriented photos, even when landscape would have been better. Once I realized I could take landscape photos I switched, although it was a little awkward holding the camera in landscape orientation without covering the lens.
I assumed iTunes would somehow transfer photos I took on the iPhone back to my computer, but it does not. To do that, you must use an application like iPhoto, Graphic Converter, or the free Image Capture application included with Mac OS X.
