Downtown Miami, as seen from the Epic Hotel. Not the worst place to escape to, the same time California is getting the first rain for a long time.
Got on board a south-bound Bombardier Q400 Didn't think before decidin' what to do All that talk of opportunity TV breaks and movies Rang true, sure rang true Seems it never rains in southern California Seems i've often heard that kind of talk before
It never rains in California But girl, don't they warn ya It pours, man it pours.
Still frame from a video our video people were making today. Matt, a recent webdev intern, looks like he's seen a ghost. I promise, however, that no interns were harmed in the making of this clip.
I know many people who would swear standing in line for bread was a Soviet Union kind of thing. But, lo and behold! It exists here too. In good American fashion, the mom-and-pop bakery business was largely extinct decades ago in favor of mass-produced, subpar bread replacement products from your friendly neighborhood supermarket. Even today it remains a challenge to find delicious baked goods in this corner of the world -- though there is a silver lining (especially in the vicinity of somewhat overpaid Silicon Valley hipsters aching for anything that sounds or looks "European"), like this bakery stand at the market, selling excellent traditional baked goods -- if only you're willing to wait in line.

Do not eat. I tried.
This place mat from a Mexican restaurant cracks me up. I can only imagine how this would look in a German restaurant: The middle would say "Ein deutsches Fest!", the people would wear Dirndl and Lederhosen, and there would be random words spread all over it.
Hello -- Hallo! Goodbye -- Auf Wiedersehen!
Tara, playing fetch with Lizzy. I love the blurriness created by moving the ball. Awesome!
Oh, don't we all love going to the dentist (wait, what?). At least, I was able to appreciate the geek factor of loading the dental x-rays straight into the computer. Pretty cool.
A kid, amazed by all the things happening around it at the farmer's market, amidst a group of people rushing to get their groceries.
I think kids can be excellent photo subjects: They have a tendency to have more honest (and obvious) emotions than adults. On the other hand, don't expect them to hold still for longer than a split-second, so you better take your picture fast :)
