Brian, aka Bushboy, posted his monthly prompt that asked us to…
  1. Post the last photo from our camera’s SD card or the last photo from our phone taken in April.
  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. No explanations needed — just the photo will do.
  4. Create a pingback to Brian’s post or link in the comments.
  5. Tag “The Last Photo.”

So here’s the last photo I took on my iPhone. I took this yesterday specifically for Brian’s challenge. Do any of you know what this is? If so, let me know in the comments.

I’m going to take Brian at his word. This was the last photo I took yesterday on my iPhone and I’m offering no explanation.

My Last Photo — February ‘21

Brian, aka Bushboy, posted a prompt yesterday that asked us to…
  1. Post the last photo from our camera’s SD card or the last photo from our phone taken in February.
  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. No explanations needed — just the photo will do.

Okay, this does require an explanation. The photo below is the last photo I took in February. Well, technically speaking, it’s not so much a photo as it is a screenshot. My wife and I took a 3.2 mile walk this morning and I recorded the walk on my Apple Watch. When I went to the Health app on my iPhone, I took this screenshot of the specifics of our walk, including a map showing our route, and then I texted the screenshot to my kids with the caption that read, “See, I don’t lead such a sedentary life. I do occasionally put my iPhone down and get off my ass.”It’s interesting how our route on the map, when shown graphically resembles a stethoscope. Anyway, this was the last “photo” in my photos file on my iPhone that was added in February.

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.
