a.k.a. "Procrastination, 21st-century style." I wanted a new skydome for my spinny cube (think: "computer desktop wallpaper"). I've got a space theme going on right now, and wanted a simple photograph of the Space Shuttle flying alone in orbit. Turns out there aren't that many photographs of this, probably because it was rare for the shuttle to be orbiting near another manned spacecraft. (Although not that rare; the shuttle docked with both Mir and the ISS.

I've been doing photography in earnest for 11 years now, but I've never really worked with video. When Nathan was born, we bought a camcorder. There's been a slow dribble of videos making their way to Youtube, but I haven't uploaded much from the past three years. Part of it was lack of time and computing power, too. But now I have a fancy new laptop (which I bought for web design) and a 160 minute commute, which I mostly use for web design, but which also leaves plenty of time (and computing power) for other things - like video processing.

This is it: my photo backlog of four years is all gone. Every single photograph I've ever shot has been processed, and the good ones uploaded to the intertubes. Here are the final sets.
First, for your viewing pleasure, may I offer the San Francisco Zoo:

I've been taking advantage of my commute to go through the rest of my photo backlog, and I'm almost done. Here are the updates:
Panoramas from the roof of my old apartment in the Haight:

I recently went on a "bunker crawl" through San Francisco with my good friend Billy Coye. We started with WWII-era fortifications but branched out to the Sutro Baths and a Nike missile site in the Marin headlands. On this tour, I tried two new things I'd never done before: HDR, and historical overlay. Yes, there will be pics. :-)

We've got new photos of Nathan!
Wild Animal Park from a couple months ago:

You may have heard about this awesome computer game called Minecraft. It's actually been out for a while now, but I've held off on blogging about it, for one very good reason. I can explain why this game is awesome, I can link to a review that explains why this game is awesome, but the best writers say "show, don't tell," so I had to wait until I could really show you what makes this game so awesome.
