This is James, smiling. If you say that's not a smile, wait till you see him frown!
Warning sign by the beach in Hawai'i: Slippery volcanic rocks.
This is the rotor of an Alaska Airlines Bombardier Q400. Luckily, Canada and I like each other, so it took me safely where I wanted to go :)
What does a self-respecting foodie do on his day off? Wine shopping, obviously. The next meals that require a decent wine pairing are definitely safe.
A soap bubble, making its way from the sink throughout our apartment. Of course, before it could reach the floor, the dog got to it and snapped it up.
If you didn't have any paranoia yet when coming to the office in the morning, your coworkers will make sure you feel like a giant cat is watching your every move by the end of the day. Wah!
Today I worked Mozilla's part of the fight against SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act: mozilla.org/sopa.
What is SOPA, you might ask? It's a law intending to establish the first American Internet censorship system. Tomorrow, 11/16, Congress holds hearings on this bill, and the scary thing is: This bill can pass. If it does, the Internet and free speech will never be the same.
Because of the fundamental danger SOPA poses to the civil rights and the core principles of the open Web, Mozilla is joining other leading Internet companies, public interest groups and citizens in opposing the Stop Online Piracy Act in the US House of Representatives. For more information, head over to mozilla.org/sopa and join Mozilla in helping protect the Internet as we know it.
A street light, casting some nice shadows through the leaves of a tree.
So far, I like how my new lens performs, particularly in low light conditions. I also started shooting some of my pictures in RAW format, as it lets me squeeze more contrast out of a picture that might turn out too dark out of the box. Finally, I played with a purple filter here (digital, not optical), which I think it gives the picture an awesome touch.
A seemingly abandoned stroller-gone-shopping-cart in Mountain View. Funnily, I've seen plenty of both: groceries shoe-horned into strollers, and children wheeled around more or less awkwardly in shopping carts. Sounds like there's a market for trading these things (transportation devices, that is, not children). Start-up idea, anyone?
I wonder how these trees came to lean left and right, alternately.
