The cruise to Linz took place in the afternoon of our Dürstein day. Cruising days are fun and relaxing. Sightseeing through the Wachau Valley – even in winter – is one of my favorite ways to spend a day. While cruising, we decided to go to the top deck, but we didn’t last long in…
This was our second visit to the postcard-perfect Dürnstein. On our last trip, there was no time to climb up the hill to the castle ruins, but this time we decided to give it a try. It was steep and a bit treacherous on the snowy steps, but at each corner, the ever-improving view demanded…
Day one – a suite surprise Our 2018 trip to Christmas Markets of Austria and Germany began with a very long, but relatively comfortable flight on Turkish Airlines, where we enjoyed multiple courses of pretty darn good airline food and lay-flat seats. (More on this later.) But the story of our trip really begins with a…
Kellster at the fabulous DeYoung Museum. https://deyoung.famsf.org/
I already had the mold 3D printed. Unfortunately, the chocolate guy totally flaked out on me. I’ll have to try again another year.
Impromptu shot during a corporate event last night under some of the worst lighting ever. Hand held – 1/13th of a second, wide open, ISO 1250. Fuji 56mm f1.2 lens.
I have wanted to post this one for a while, but had to wait until after Christmas. I’m pretty pleased with these joyful shots. They look great on the card.
I took a little time this weekend to clean up a model I’ve had floating around for a couple years. Cinema4D’s ability to import SolidWorks files along with Corona Render made it easy to create this version of the instrument.
We enjoyed a splendid day with crystal clear air at The Burt’s with our best pals.
Very cool!! http://radio.garden/live/chicago-il/polskie-radio-chicago/
It seems nice and stable!
This ridge is highest point in the area. In the background of the first picture you can see the Mississippi River. Andrew and Matthew, (Bob’s sons), are standing by a natural spring and the final pictures shows the valley behind his house…which we hiked down to….which we had to hike back up. Luckily, Bob got…
We had a little time to kill before our first Holiday party of the season, so we visited one of the most interesting Golden Gate Bridge vantage points. Shots from this location are always beautiful. This one is unique because of the intense smoke. It’s bad. Much worse than it appears in this shot. The…
Looking for that perfect holiday gift? How about a $50,000 refrigerator? https://goo.gl/vE3wgL
The fires have caused our air to fall into the very unhealthy category. I can attest to that fact.
I find that inspirational.
It’s been close to a year since I made an entry. I guess I’ve grown wary of all forms of social media. But, now that Google+ will be going away, I will try to find the motivation to post more frequently on my new Google+ inspired design. I have been setting up the photo booth…
A few favs from this week.
Cool drone vid by George Krieger captures Burning Man pretty well. https://www.facebook.com/georgekrieger/videos/10212701306316032/UzpfSTc5NjA3OTM3NzoxMDE1NjY0NzE4ODc4NDM3OA/
(I do a lot of this sort of thing.)
Cinema4D, Corona Render, and of course, PhotoShop.
Excellent BBC piece featuring — you guessed it — Andrew!
Even at my age, these cans are beyond wonderful with one caveat. This has forced me to go through my entire music collection and hear it again for the first time. Occasionally I stumble onto a masterpiece of music and sound. It dawned on me that I should share these when I find ’em. Bust…
Kelly hangs with the minis at another fundraiser, this time for http://www.sonrisekids.org/. The rest of the shots -> https://photos.app.goo.gl/CtyDqSX2rh5qqsXS7
