Seems like anytime they are open Seattle's five Dick's Drive In locations are doing a brisk business. I stopped for photos only :-), but these other folks went away with burgers, fries, and shakes. Coming in late with my iPhone Wednesday shot for today, as life is full and other deadlines prevailed. Getting night shots with a 2 megapixel iPhone camera is, ah, challenging, shall we say. I had to take 4 or 5 shots before I could manage to keep the highlights from blowing out the words on the signs. Can you read the menu? It's my iPhone Wednesday shot, where I shoot the image and edit it with one or more of the many aps available. Just heard this week that Adobe has a Photo Shop ap for iPhone now, so will be checking that out soon. I was at the Apple store on Monday and played with the 3Gs, which has a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus as well as video. I'm waiting for at least another upgrade or two to come out, since competitor's smart phones already feature 5 mega pixel cameras. If Apple is smart it will drastically improve camera function to stay on top. They just better watch out for the company that already has a deal with Carl Zeiss, the superb lens manufacturer. My only other iPhone wish besides a huge camera upgrade would be an elegant little interfacing folding keyboard like I have for my Palm Pilot. It folded to about the size of an index card, but acted like a full keyboard in how easy it was to type on. Made taking notes in class really easy without the hassle and weight of lugging around a laptop or the expense of a notebook.

Now if you'd like a really fine pulled pork sandwich from Seattle's most unique gourmet meals on wheels, or you are feeling a bit lost and just need some direction, check out Chuck's and Ming the Merciless' iPhone Wednesday shots.

You just made my day with this photo. I fly back to Seattle twice a year just for my Dicks Fries and Deluxe fix. Oh, and of course Spud Fish and Chips as well.

" I stopped for photos only ..."---yeah, right! How could you resist? I always have at least one meal at Dick's when in Seattle.

uh, sure, Kim. I know from experience how difficult it is to pass up one of Dick's deluxe hamburgers. C'mon, now ... the truth?
