Curious about your camera and where it puts the time/date stamp. A few
of the shots it was in the lower right, which is where I've seen it
most. But most of yours it was upper left and upside down, which I've
never seen before. The flip comment would be to ask if you were holding
your camera upside down, but I'm sure there has to be a logical answer
since so many were like that.
God bless the USA
My parents thought I was a real wit, and they were half right.
I have my camera hanging from my rear-view mirror, held by a gorilla
pod, which has bendable legs that can bend to a very tight radius. I
wrapped all three around the mount and stem, such that it holds the
camera pretty rigidly and steady and makes it really easy (and thusly,
safer) to take consistent pics. The camera mounts via the standard
threaded screw and slotted key, so it's upside-down. I could probably
just remove the date stamp, since the metadata has the time info on
when it's taken. If I upgrade to a better camera, which is pretty
likely sometime soon, I'll get one with remote capabilities, which
should make taking pics almost effortless minus judging when to hit
the button. My camera is pretty marginal and takes grainy photos for
the most part.
