Mostly photography but with bits of running, tech, and musings on life

Anaheim Gardenwalk [Day 2364]

0

I’m in Anaheim for the week so that I can spend three days in Disneyland for my birthday! Today involved a train ride, swimming in the pool, going to The Cheesecake Factory, and a nice leisurely walk through a new shopping area. Tomorrow: Disneyland!

“dancing through shadows” [Day 2363]

0

I cannot take credit for the title of today’s photo, they are words written by a friend of mine in a touching tribute for a recent passing. But they are lovely words and I felt they fit this photo very well, so I hope they do mind the reuse.

fractured [Day 2361]

Do you ever feel that sometimes your attention is pulled in so many different directions that your focus becomes shattered? No? Yeah, neither do I…

On the plus side, when you find a broken mirror lying on the sidewalk, you get the opportunity to take a photograph like this without needing to incur seven years of bad luck :-)

Getting the newest versions of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. While some aspects of Adobe’s software subscription model can be disconcerting, the ease of getting the latest updates is pretty darn convenient.

coca-cola [Day 2357]

These days, I rarely ever drink soda. But on those rare occasions when I do, I make sure to get it in a glass bottle. It’s the best way to really enjoy it.

Heroes of the Storm [Day 2356]

It’s been a long and incredibly productive day! Time to unwind with a match or two of Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard’s latest game.

Bonus shot of the Starter Pack set I picked up last weekend. Even though it’s a Free-to-Play game, where you can earn in-game gold to unlock new characters, I wanted to be able to purchase a few characters right off, as well as get the special mount that’s only available with this set. Plus, I still kind of like having physical boxes for some things ;-)
