My Judgment Day May 21 Billboard Photo On

Judgement Day is less than 3 weeks away, May 21st, according to Harold Camping's sign over Budget Copy in Cambridge.

My "Judgement Day May 21 Billboard Over Budget Copy in Cambridge, MA" photo makes the website.

Slate calls it "clearly photoshopped." It isn't, but it is post-processed (with the Camera+ iPhone app) heightening the contrast on the clouds. It's a cellphone photo, so it obviously won't stand for much post-processing, but those clouds were really there. That's pretty much been our weather around here for as long as I can remember. It's photo #2 in the slideshow. I'm also credited with the next image, too, but I've never been to Lebanon, so obviously that's a mistake.

I guess we'll find out this weekend if Mr. Camping's math and biblical scholarship skills have improved any since 1994.
