My Last Photo in November

Brian, aka Bushboy, posted a prompt today that asks us to “post the last photo from your cameras SD card or the last photo from your phone taken on the 30th November.” Brian explained that all we have to do is…

1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th November.

2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.

3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do.

4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments.

5. Tag “The Last Photo” or #LastOnTheCard.

Okay then. Now I know that Brian said that no explanation is needed, but the last photo I took yesterday might seem a little weird. So I’m going to give just a little bit of an explanation.

We have a Google Home Hub in our family room that we primarily use for video calls with our kids. On Friday morning, the device’s video camera suddenly stopped working, so I called Google support and spent about four hours with various tech support folks trying to troubleshoot the problem. Unfortunately, they couldn’t come up with a resolution.

But early yesterday morning I received an email from a guy named Ian from Google. He provided detailed instructions and said that if I diligently followed his instructions, it should restore the video functionality on the device. So I followed his step-by-step instructions and, sure enough, the video capabilities were restored.

However, there was something new on the Hub’s display that was not there before. And so I took this photo, added the red arrow to highlight what I was talking about and emailed it to Ian.This morning I received an email from Ian, who wrote, “Hmm. That is odd. Lemme check with the team and I’ll get back to you.”

Sorry, my brief explanation went on a bit longer than I anticipated, but I felt I couldn’t just drop this photo on you cold turkey.

    That would have been a perfect no explanation photo Fandango. The woman in the photo looks like she is looking where the arrow is pointing. Did you click on the video icon and see what happened? You do seem to have more than your fair share of IT adventures!! All this popcorn is making me fat. 😀 😀
    Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

    I always leave the last chip I used in my machine until I take more pictures.

    So what is that? A ghost perhaps? A floating mask? The bottom of a magic carpet?

      I think it’s more of a technical glitch in the Google Hub device.
