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.
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.
Santa came a bit early to thedude’s home this year. Looks like she brought a case of wine.
Thanks Ali! ;-)
Man, I wish Kelly and I could have made it to Bali this year.
One of the very few things I like about Christmas is that it provides a legitimate excuse to listen to this.
Have a look at the first two or three of these – at least. There is much to see here – many of the illusions are positively baffling.
If I could make my own Flash Holiday greeting this would be it. Unfortunately, I’m nowhere near as clever as Odd Todd, who has created some of the best Flash movies on the web.

If you have a broadband connection, and don’t mind waiting for a 2 megabyte file to download, then sit back, pop open a brew and and enjoy a White Trash Christmas.
While on the subject – have you checked out this other Dude’s site lately? I’ve been told more than once that I am most definitley NOT The Dude – that in fact, this Dude is THE ONE TRUE DUDE. Don’t tell my shrink, but I’m inclined to agree. The Big Lebowski is one definitely one of the funniest films ever made.
