I Was Wondering About That

Diego Garcia seems to have escaped unscathed. Tsunami’s are something we talked about on the island whenever the earth shook. We always joked that a 9.0 earthquake had just occurred off the coast of Sumatra and laughed nervously – awaiting a huge wave that thankfully never came. Diego Garcia has an average elevation of four feet. The thousands of U.S. military and Philippine workers who live there are very lucky.

Happy Birthday Barbara!

Twenty nine looks good on ya!

On a side note, I’d like to point out that these shots were taken wth our trusty Canon G3 – still the best digital camera for most people. There is a catch though – you must always shoot using aperture priority. To get these shots, I chose 1/6 second with the lens wide open. The Canon’s fast f 2.0 lens, perfectly exposed fill-flash and easy hand-holding make these shots possible. Shots like these are impossible to make with my Nikon D70 – or any other DSLR, for that matter.

Christmas with the Clans

I got out of going to Fresno this year. Instead, I was forced to go to Redding. Worse, right? Well, it turned out to be a ton of fun. Yeah, that Hale/Hunter Clan really knows how to throw a dart.

An Embarassment of Riches

Thanks Ali! 😉

Bali Dreaming

Man, I wish Kelly and I could have made it to Bali this year.
