Happy anniversary!

Everyone (including me) is probably going to be too busy tomorrow, so I wanted to take a moment now to wish a very happy anniversary to Marie and Dan, Celisa and Chris, and Michelle and Dennis. All of them got married on June 3rd! (Was it last year that turned out to be the 5th, 10th, and 20th anniversaries?)

My pictures of Dan and Marie's big day are all on a hard drive at home, and I didn't know Dennis and Michelle when they got married, but here are the pictures I took eleven years ago tomorrow with the first practical consumer digital camera, Apple's QuickTake.

It took pictures at 640x480 resolution, which seemed magnificent at the time! That's not even one-third megapixel. Apple got out of this bit of the consumer electronics industry when Steve Jobs came back to the company, but they certainly returned to the consumer fray with a passion a few years later.
