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

I really like the name of this cider. It was pretty good, too! Very dry, which was a nice change of pace from most ciders which are usually rather sweet.

I was down in Solvang for the weekend for a friend’s birthday party, and today, a few of us went over to the nearby playground. Which happens to be one of the coolest playgrounds I’ve ever seen. It’s got all sorts of walkways, towers, bridges, and even a viking ship!

The texture and complimentary colors here are what really drew me towards photographing this.

Comment Spam of the Week: July 24th


It’s time for another round of “Comment Spam of the Week!” Once again, more blocked comment spam from the blog, with my commentary, and hopefully you find it as entertaining as I do :-)


A few years ago I’d have to pay someone for this information.

  • You still do actually. I’ll be sending you an invoice right away.

DANGER [Day 2030]


Sign that says, "Danger: Ninjas and pirates and lasers and shit

Photo-a-Day: Year 6, Day 204 – Total Days: 2,030

A friend of mine runs his own business, Argent Data Systems, and I was over at his shop today helping him out with a giant order he recently received. While there, I noticed that he’s got one of the greatest warning signs I’ve ever seen. I mean, that’s some serious danger, right there. I probably should have worn a helmet or something.

Not much to say here. Just some flowers I spotted on the sidewalk while walking over to a friend’s house for dinner…

SLO ren faire 2014: knights

This past Saturday, I went to the San Luis Obispo Renaissance Festival, which was celebrating its 30th Anniversary. It’s a great time full of ale, knights, costumes, ale, accents, jousts, swordfighting, ale, turkey legs, archery, falcons, ale, giant jenga, music, camaraderie, and oh, did I mention ale? ;-)

dungeons and dragons 5th edition starter set

Photo-a-Day: Year 6, Day 202 – Total Days: 2,028

I may be a photographer, but I’m also a total geek on the side. Yep, I’ve been known to play some Dungeons and Dragons on occasion. It’s been awhile though. But with the new 5th Edition coming out this year, I’ve just had to check it out. Picked up the new boxed Starter Set last week and was able to start running a game this evening for some friends.
