buffalo wild wings [Day 2330]

0

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…

beams [Day 2323]

Spotted a big stack of wooden beams for a construction project near the neighborhood Mexican restaurant I went to for dinner tonight. Thought the overall texture and color contrast between the edges and tops of the beams was visually interesting.

Taken during a short after work photowalk around the neighborhood. I loved how the setting sunlight highlighted the edges of this path up the hill.

Big Sur Camping Trip

0

Just got back from a wonderful four-day camping trip up in Big Sur, CA. Had some rain the first night, but fortunately, not until after camp was mostly set up. Got to spend a lot of time hiking, sitting around a crackling fire, cooking hot dogs and hamburgers, drinking beer, checking out Nepenthe and the Hawthorne gallery, driving the twisty turns of Highway One, reading, seeing Julie Pfeiffer Burns state park, enjoying a delicious breakfast at Deetjen’s (best Eggs Benedict anywhere!) and more.

I even made sure to completely turn off my phone upon arrival, once I discovered that I was actually able to get about a bar or two of signal occasionally at camp. No intrusions or diversions from the normal world for me. It was glorious.

And since I had no connectivity, it’s now time to get caught up on sharing photo of the day for the past three days. I think I’ll just take care of that in one post.
