San Francisco, 1988

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.

One Walk, One Lens

We had good lighting for a while this afternoon, so I went out with my crazy sharp 14 – 24 mm lens and took these shots – all within two blocks of our loft.

I really love Oakland, and would happily stay here forever, but it’s sometimes easy to see why not everyone feels this way.

Park Street Crap Fair


Nothing special about today’s crap fair – just a load of the usual stuff that nobody needs. The high point was discovering this Smart Car-only parking spot less than 100 feet from the main stage and the fabulous Sun Kings.

System Administrator Appreciation Day

Today is an important day in the life of thedude – System Administrator Appreciation Day.

The Mighty Affymetrix IT Team

I made a group shot at our IT picnic last week.

I often do not get to be in group shots, as I’m stuck behind the camera. I really wanted to be a part of this one, so I asked my boss to shoot a picture of me after I shot the group, and I PhotoShop’ed myself into the scene.
