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

Witcher 3 [Day 2333]

0

While I’ve only been able to get in a bit of game time with the Witcher 3, I can already attest to the fact that this game is phenomenal. The graphics, the combat, the crafting, the world, the voice acting, the writing (especially the writing) — all amazing. It’s got some tremendous complexity to it, but it wasn’t that hard to get the basic hang of it, and once you do it’s truly remarkable. It’s like they took all the different systems and best aspects from games like Skyrim, Dragon Age, Dark Souls and GTA and blended them all together into one incredible whole.

It was also extra cool that the developers included a little thank you note for buying their game.

Plus, I was able to fight a pack of wolves while on horseback. 10 out of 10.

lemons and spider web [Day 2332]

0

Haven’t played around with my wide angle lens in a while and really wanted to. What drew me to this subject was the brightness of the lemons, further enhanced by the bit of sunlight streaming from behind. Plus if you look close, there’s a neat spider web.

Apple Watch Sport Band [Day 2331]

0

I got my Apple Watch with the super stylish Milanese Loop band, but I wanted to have a second option, y’know, for fashion. I opted for the black sport band since I figured a sport band would be nice for running. It arrived today and it does not disappoint! The feel of it is fantastic — very smooth and supple; not like most rubber watch bands at all. I guess that’s why the use the much fancier term, “fluoroelastomer”.

buffalo wild wings [Day 2330]

Went to the new Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in town tonight. The place sure was packed, but thankfully, not as bad as when they first opened. It’s nice how they have a ton of different sauces for the wings. Definitely want to try a few more varieties.

If only I knew what kind of plant this was, perhaps then I could have a title for this photo…

Why yes, it is another photograph of the inside of my computer. What can I say; I think it looks interesting!

Went to a wine tasting event at Halter Ranch today. Great location, great company, and great wine!

GTX 970 [Day 2326]

Installed my new Geforce GTX 970 graphics card tonight. Nice upgrade from my 660. Checked out Dragon Age: Inquisition and was getting buttery smooth frame rates on ultra settings. This must be what automotive junkies feel like when they make modifications to their car.

heat sink [Day 2325]

Did some cleaning inside my computer case yesterday night. Makes me want to get some good photographs of the interior, but didn’t really have time for that tonight. So just a quick one without any decent lighting. Tomorrow, I should be getting a new graphics card to put in, so I’ll have to get some nicer photos when I do that.

Pretty flowers on a spring evening and a 300mm zoom lens: that’s basically cheating when it comes to making a pleasant photo…
