My old pal Steve is scanning his old slides and negatives, and he sent me this gem, shot somewhere in the late eighties – Steve thinks it was 1988 or 1989. He shot this with Kodak’s nearly grain-free Ektar 25 negative film loaded in his Pentax ME Super from San Franciso’s Corona Heights Park. (Google placemark) Yep, that’s a young dude in the foreground. If Steve’s time frame is right, I would have just returned from a year in Diego Garcia.

Here’s a new twist on 360 Degree Panoramas. These are shot from a helicopter. Fabulous!
There was a small fire early this morning in our building’s new restaurant. It looks like a bucket of kitchen rags smoldered for hours before creating just enough heat to cause a sprinkler head to blow in the kitchen area of our favorite eatery.

I was extremely sleepy at 5:30 this morning when I took these, which probably explains why I didn’t shoot more of them.
I saw Eloisa this afternoon, and she seemed to be in pretty good spirits. We look forward to seeing MoNO open again soon!
