Travel Post Friday: Woodrow Wilson’s car is the cat’s pajamas

Woodrow Wilson's restored Pierce-Arrow car at his Presidential Library (photo by Sheila Scarborough)

This is Woodrow Wilson’s restored Pierce-Arrow limousine, at his Presidential Library in Staunton, Virginia.  Nice museum, with a small new World War I exhibit, and Staunton is a charming town in the Shenandoah Valley. (The cat’s pajamas is 1920’s slang for “pretty awesome.”)

I took the photo with my Android phone (a Motorola) and have to say that I’ve been more than pleased with its camera. Shutter lag is significant, but picture quality is good enough that lately I’ve forgotten about using my regular Canon digital point-and-shoot camera. Plus, with the phone, I can send things up to Facebook (as this one was sent) and Twitter while standing right there.

A good smartphone camera is really changing how I create content when I travel.

    Nice photo! And I know what you mean about smartphone cameras changing how we approach content, mine has started to change the way I blog. Still haven’t grasped the nettle and taken that to another level yet though.
