I just got back from my trip to San Francisco (top secret project…shhhhhh), but a couple of things made this trip rather interesting. I have never really been a tourist or a photographer. Its something I have been meaning to change for a while since I do want to have something I can look at years from now and be like: “oh yeah I remember that..”. However my interests are so much more in the new and shiny things on the www that cataloging my travels seems like a chore.
However this trip I tried to mix the two domains a bit. I have a shiny new iPhone (well not so new now), and I have been meaning to play with Google’s new my maps + embeddable maps features, so here is my trip with photos from my iPhone with some information about my trip on custom markers. I have a vague color coding going on there with green markers being the first day, the blue, the second and pink the third day at SF.
While this was fun, it really isnt the experience I was hoping to create. Thankfully, both flickr (where my photos are hosted) and google maps have apis so I may monkey with ’em a bit and come up with something interesting.
