NYC Subway at 145th Street

Just another day. Whoosh!


Here's a shot I took back in July when bearfuz and I were in Hawaii.  This is on the Big Island, near Pahoa, on the south shore.

Stazione Genova Principe

There's a wonderful train station, two actually, in Genova (Genoa to us Americans).  This is a shot I took at Stazione Genova Principe one afternoon.  I miss it there.

Brooklyn Bridge

Here's another one from the photoshoot from a couple nights ago.  I think I'm finally getting the hang of this.

(Trying to) Go Pro!

 Taken last night.  Five shots, AEB, Canon EOS 70D.  Photomatic, Adobe Lightroom 5, Adobe Photoshop CS5 (Extended).

I was standing at the corner waiting to cross the street.  Suddenly, out of nowhere, the thought occurred to me thay I don't need nor require the use of this hemi walker and that this has been entirely constructed in the confines of my mind.  As a result, I threw the walker in the trash and bolted across Broadway on 72nd Street to meet my appointment at the eye doctor.

And then I woke up, just grateful to have another day, regardless of how mundane, boring, or challenging it may seem.

My going to IAGSDC convention is in-the-balance now as dancing may not be an option.



I've come to believe that education is like building an airplane - while flying it!

Miss Saigon

So I departed for Milan a week ago today to meet with Max (the next day) and we traveled to London together.

One of the reasons for the trip to London was to see the new 25th Anniversary production of "Miss Saigon" http://www.miss-saigon.com.

It was absolutely amazing!  Here's how the whole scenario played out... From 4:30am (ET USA) on Wednesday to 11:45pm (GMT) Thursday without real "sleep" (cat naps, but nothing major).

We both slept until 4pm on Friday, waking up just in time to hit the pubs with some local friends.

How was the show?  When it hits NYC (and I hope it does) it will do quite well.  One drawback: they used a drop of a skyline to create "Atlanta" - however, they used the Renaissance Center which is actually located in Detroit.  I was going to write Cameron himself to ask that he not think Americans are stupid enough to not recognize that building and that it comes from Detroit.  While it doesn't detract from the story, I kept asking myself "why did they choose to represent Detroit - was it because the building with SIX towers looks cooler than the Atlanta skyline?"

The helicopter scene (and Kim's Nightmare) have been totally reconceived.  Definitely worth seeing!  I got the 2CD set (17GBP) and a souvenir program (no Playbills in London, sorry).

I can't wait to go back again!


Is this thing still turned-on?

I've been working on my photo skills again lately. What do you think?
