I don't have a Razr, but I do use the auto-upload feature of the photobucket app on my G'nex. If you deleted the pictures from the roll inside the photobucket app, they may still exist in the camera's native camera or gallery app. If you've got G+ enabled on your phone, it may have also auto-uploaded the images to your G+ page (mine does) so you might be able to find them there.

Maybe I can dig up copies on one of my PC's, if not I'll just try to do some recreation pics for posterity. Northbridge and Auburn are close enough, Somerset is a ride, maybe Sunday after the OSBMWR chicken run.

Should have read the directions
When you go back to auburn can you look for my key chain?

Love the sunset being reflected off the windows. Aside from telling me which side of the building you are on, which is easy to figure from searching, it gives the photo a very cool element that would be hard to reproduce.
That photo is straight out of the phone, modulo whatever resizing photobucket did to make it fit their size requirements. When I got the G'nex, the stock camera app was... not so good, so I switched over to "HDR Camera+". That photo was taken with the "Natural" filter, composed from [-1,0,+1EV], which seems to give good results for static shots like that one.

A bit off topic, but...

I just picked up a new Android-compatible DeLorme inReach for $5 at my local REI. See this post for the details.

The inReach is a GPS tracker, like the SPOT tracker, using the Iridium satellite network. You use it to send messages with your position via satellite. It, like the SPOT, also has an SOS mode where they automatically link up with local emergency services to come looking for you.

It is a bit more expensive than the SPOT, but allows for two-way satellite SMS messages. The model I got interfaces with an Android phone and a mapping app from DeLorme for the composition and sending of two-way messages. You do not have to be connected to the phone to send pre-programmed messages or 911 messages (which is what the SPOT does).

You do not have to have cell service to send and receive messages--like in the middle of many National Parks and Forests, not to mention the Maine woods.

Details at the DeLorme site. It normally goes for $249, not including the service subscription.

This tag is located at a busy intersection, so the tag shot was taken with the bike in the lot of a neighboring business.
What's an "in-between town? "

Yup, Estey Tavern in Middleton at the intersection of Route 62 and 114. I originally thought it was "Essex Tavern" but there's no such place. It's a couple of miles from my office. Took a pic in case no one grabbed it but now the tag moves on.....

I was gonna say not enough info, but with the clues available, I found this picture on the web:



I'm getting better at figuring out where stuff is, now I just gotta get better at riding out to the tags spots.

Im more about the ride and less about the google...I always try and make it pretty easy to find. I just wish I looked at the map of the un tagged towns before I left Middleton...I rode thru two towns not tagged yet!!
