October 10, 2006 to present
For those who have been following my website, you know that this isn't exactly a daily
photo blog, but I do try to post fairly regularly. For the occasion of my 200th daily picture posting, I changed the layout of the page a bit. Now only the most recent pictures will be here and the rest will be on an archive page
. Enjoy, and feel free to send comments
So that was a bit more than a month. But now it is a new year, and I'll try again to post a bit more frequently. Here is a shot from Tacoma Washington, on our way to the Bay Area for AGU and vacation, before we went to Maui
Morro Rock from a kayak in Morro Bay. I just posted four pictures, which will be the last for about a month, as we move to Alaska.
An otter in Morro Bay.
Pismo Beach sunset.
Elephant seals play fighting on top of sleeping elephant seals.
Rocks off the coast of Big Sur.
Blooming artichoke. I wanted to eat it, Taryn wanted to let it flower. She won.
A blueberry buckle that we made. Delicious.
A nice red passion flower (I think).
A branch of a monkey puzzle tree.
A giant leaf in the SF Botanical Garden. The view shown here is probably about 40 cm wide.
These little flowers have a lighter color in the center that makes them look like they're glowing.
A rust-colored door.
A false color image of some daisies.
A close-up of a nasturtium.
We have a bunch of nasturtiums along our hill. The deer like to eat the leaves, which is why you see many headless stems.
Artichokes in our garden.
An almond macaroon torte
that I made.
Delicious blueberry muffins Taryn made.
Kale in our garden.
Leucospermum Patricia at a later stage of blossoming.
Almost like little orchids.
A budding onion flower with a spider.
An onion flower.
A square window in SF.
Waves in a reflection. Downtown San Francisco.
The SF Ferry Building from the observation deck on the Bay side.
Cirrus at sunset.
One low cloud casts a shadow on higher clouds over Mt. Tam.
A nice sunset a while back.
Punkin gets crazy with catnip.
Pier feet with shaggy icicles.
Nice clouds at sunset.
Anybody need to make a broom?
Falling petals. Unintentionally out-of-focus - the moment was fleeting.
Geo Quiz: what famous landmark is this?
Dry flowers silhouetted against Lake Mendota.
One of the two dreamkeepers.
Orange trees in Chicago.
Part of a series with similar compositions. Kinda like a headshot, but for a building.
The Prudential Building in Chicago.
It has been a long time since I've updated. Here goes again.
A nice succulent on spindly branches.
Echinacea at sunset in our garden.
A long exposure on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Would be better with some photoshop work...
Just north of the Benicia-Martinez Bridge, there is a car-to-rail lot with lots of new cars. Map
. It is also close to the Navy's mothballed fleet
. What is this tugboat
doing to those ships Sept 24, 2009?
Fox by Luman. I think the white glasses and words (?) were a later addition.
A self portrait of sorts?
Graffiti near the Amtrak station in Berkeley.
An oddly strange painting of food on a food cart in Spenger's parking lot.
Spenger's in Berkeley.
"Nearest Neighbor" An interpolation of ablation errors on the Taylor Glacier. I like the different little alien faces that you can imagine in the data. My current desktop background.
The guts of a Black and Decker one-cup coffee maker. The wiring in the upper right corner burned out. It is (was) a pretty clever little machine.
Yesterday I saw a hummingbird drinking from a crazy spiky plant. And then I took a picture of it. And then I fiddled with the settings on my camera. And then it was gone.
played the Star-Spangled banner on their Tesla coils at the Maker Faire. It was awesome - much more impressive in person than it is on YouTube
A chandelier at the Maker Faire.
Another flower from Havey Canyon.
A nice red flower on the Havey Canyon Trail. It seems that I have been taking a lot of flower pictures lately. That is slightly disturbing. I need to get up to the mountains.
A thistle on the Havey Canyon Trail.
Little purple flowers growing on the hillside below our house.
Icelandic poppies growing in our garden.
The Golden Gate bridge and a plane.
A great maroon orchid from Trader Joe's.
Flower-filled field on the slopes of Mount Diablo.
These delicate flowers were hiding under some chapparal on the north side of Mount Diablo. There wasn't much light, so the picture isn't as sharp as I'd like, but it is still pretty.
I don't think I've seen lichen that is unfurled quite like this before. The brown (or green) color is usually wrapped up in the gray. Also in the chapparal on the north side of Mt. Diablo.
Cool shape, isn't it? On the north side of Mount Diablo near the summit.
