I Almost Forgot I Had A Blog

I feel like I owe my friends and fam­i­ly an apol­o­gy for pos­si­bly scar­ing them into think­ing I was miss­ing and feared dead. I’m not going to go into some annoy­ing post about how busy my life has been late­ly and I just haven’t had time to write. Part­ly because that’s not true at all and also becuase nobody real­ly likes read­ing lame posts like that anyway.

I have been writ­ing some trav­el logs of our trip out to Cal­i­for­nia, although I’m far from being fin­ished yet. You can get the slide-show ver­sion by check­ing out the Flickr group of just a few of my pho­tos. I am, of course, hop­ing that Travis will post a few of his online as well, but I’ll leave that up to him (although he’s a pret­ty good pho­tog­ra­ph­er, so those of you inter­est­ed in out­door pho­tos should say ‘please’). I exper­i­ment­ed with panora­mas a lot on this trip and a num­ber of them came out with impres­sive results, if I may say so.

Oth­er­wise, life has actu­al­ly been pret­ty qui­et here at home. Work has set­tled down sub­stan­tial­ly for me post-vaca­tion1. Speak­ing of home, though, my pal, John­ny, and I went to pur­chase some lum­ber and hard­ware for rebuild­ing the base­ment stair­well this com­ing week­end. Stay tuned for loads of infor­ma­tion on that and why you should prob­a­bly nev­er attempt this sort of thing yourself.

  1. Oh, work was insane for a while there; but you would­n’t know about that since it left me no time to post about it. []

  1. Jason, That is quite a not so sup­tle way of say­ing, let me see the darn pho­tos. Meg has mailed you a cd with all (real­ly only those that are at least most­ly blurr free )of the pho­tos. Call it old fash­ioned but I just haven’t brought myself to post pho­tos online in Flickr or else­where. Per­haps one day. In any case you are wel­come to do with these pho­tos as you wish. You and Angela were in the same place Meg and I were, so at least in prin­ci­ple you had the same oppor­tu­ni­ty to cap­ture the same image. Sev­er­al of the pho­tos you will find will make good panara­mas (Colum­bia Point, Bride­vail Fall over­look, Mir­ror Lake) when­ev­er I get around to bung­ing them togeth­er. Again, have at it if you wish.

  2. Oh, yeah I took lots of pho­tos at the end of Fish­er­man’s Wharf in Mon­eterey that will make for a good panara­ma. And there are sev­er­al pho­tos in there of a very tall red­wood from Yosemite.

  3. Travis, I sup­pose I was actu­al­ly just try­ing to say that you gen­er­al­ly take bet­ter pho­tos than me, even if we’re stand­ing side by side! Thanks for mail­ing the CD. I want­ed to get some of the panora­mas put togeth­er of mine and Ange­la’s pho­tos before mail­ing you one, and I’ve just about got all that done. Keep a look out for a pho­to-laden CD com­ing your way (also with some video, this time!).

    None-the-less, it was a great trip and I’d do it again even if there were no pho­tos tak­en. The com­pa­ny alone was worth the trip.
