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

I rather liked how the light on this worked out – with the flower pot standing out very nicely from the fence. Plus, it was a nice test of using a really high ISO on the 6D. Impressive low-light performance on this thing.

Tonight was the 6th Annual Student Robotics Expo here in San Luis Obispo. It was great! There were all sorts of robots. My favorites were probably the ones shown above that could pick up large balls and launch them.

There were also Lego Robots, underwater robots, a robot battle arena, and even a police bomb disposal robot. I definitely love the fact that so many schools now have robotics clubs and took the chance to share their fun creations with the community.

Bonus photos below!

The police bomb disposal robot wasn’t messing around. That thing is seriously awesome! I wonder if it gets hazard pay…

Westley is a huge fan of robots, and was totally thrilled to see them in action :-)
