Backyard Hunter

This female was hanging out in our backyard for several weeks. At last sighting she was attached to a male, who looked rather less vital the she did. No sign of them for a few days now.

Light Sculptures


























































I shot these at night by moving the camera. I like the randomness of the results. I've enhanced these in Picasa.

Sarah, Robin, me, and Adam

This was at a casino where we went for brunch to celebrate with my sister's family and my folks. This was on the weekend near mother's day.

Marina Beach April 1, 2007



Nihad and I had fun taking these shots. We took turns tossing the ball across the camera's field of view, and panned as Lester shot past. As you can see in the first 2 images, all four of his feet get off the ground when he's in full gallop. The third is more of a trot, I think. For more info, click that link for info on gaits, or this one for info on stop-motion photography pioneer Eadweard Muybridge.

Lester cavorting on Marina Beach, April 1, 2007










Here's Lester having great fun at the beach. I adjusted the colors on these using Picasa. I have Photoshop Elements now, but still need to learn how to use it.

Sunsets!




I have been screwing around with the editing tools, and I like these results. That top one, I think I might like to blow it up in a print on canvas board, see if it works out as an imitation expressionist painting. The second one I went too far, and it almost doesn't look like a beach any more. I didn't do much with the third and fourth ones, but they do look a lot better than what came out of the camera.

Lord of the Beach

I really like the way this shot came out. We are on a cliff at the beach in Marina, and Lester is looking out at the ocean, imagining he is Jack Sparrow. The wind has caught his ears, what luck!

Here are two photos of my new apartment. Well, sorta new, I moved in March 20. I've been busy lately going through photos and putting them in frames to hang on the walls. I thought I had put this off too long, but honestly I've been really busy with other things. I told some friends about my delay, and they both confessed to having frames all along their baseboards for a year or more, and still nothing hanging. Well, I didn't want to end up like that, so I've made some time for it. See above the couch, how there's too much space? That gets my attention next. I'll put some updated photos up soon.

Wild Turkeys

A family of wild turkeys invaded my neighborhood today. Here is the tom. He had about 7 hens and juveniles following him. What a sight! Lester saw them and went crazy.
