The Digital Age Rules

That’s It?

Originally uploaded by MikeOliveri.


Yesterday was Break Day at my karate dojo, and I took several pictures while my son and our classmates broke their boards. Despite the difficulties associated with a point-and-shoot digital camera, I caught a few great shots and I’ll be sharing them with our sensei and some of the other students.

As usual, I uploaded them all to Flickr. However, I didn’t want to wait a week or so for the pictures, so I decided to try their “print to Target” option. This is just what it sounds like: you have your pics sent to Target, then pick them up and pay for them an hour later.

Just a few clicks and my pics were on their way. We showed up for them a few hours later, and while there was a network glitch that prevented the initial transfer, we were able to get our pictures just a few hours after taking them without the double duty of uploading the photos both to my computer and to a digital photo kiosk at a store.

Way cool.
