Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Peter Langenhahn stitched together photos of every penalty during a soccer match:

Such carnage! Reminds me of the image fusion project I did in college.

I really like this picture.

Some new header images

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

I’ve really enjoyed taking and cropping pictures for the header of this blog. I’ve added several pictures from my Summer trips (included below). I think I have enough now and it’s time to start removing some of them. You can see the whole set here… I’m considering removing 6, 8, 10, 11, 14, and 17. Any feedback on those or the new ones is always appreciated.

A door from La Alhambra (is this one too creepy?):

From an island in Chile:

At the science museum in Barcelona, they had this transparent cube full of ping pong balls bounding around with a strobe light or something, creating a neat effect with a long-exposure photo:

More trip-related blog posts to come…

I may want to start retiring some of the older ones soon, I just have to figure out which I like the least.

Ruins of Detroit

this photo series is quite chilling. It reminds me of the pictures after Hurricane Katrina.

Ocean Beach run

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

I drove over to Ocean Beach today to go running. The weather was perfect: 60 degrees and sunny with a cool wind. I decided to take my camera with me on the run, and stopped in a few places to take pictures:

My route took me north through Ocean Beach up through Lincoln Park and back, then I meandered a bit in Golden Gate Park (mostly to check out the windmill). I think I totaled somewhere between 3 and 4 miles. I hope to go back there tomorrow to explore more of that end of Golden Gate Park.

Eventually I plan on taking the bus to the beach and running back home through the park, or taking the bus there and running to the presidio to take the bus back. I want to explore a bit more first, though.

Happy New Year (with art!)

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

After a week of travel, I’m getting ready to head back to SF tomorrow. It’s been a great trip, as I’ve been able to spend time with large portions of my friends and family. I also worked from the Cambridge and New York Google offices, which was enjoyable.

I really liked this new year’s ad from Electrabel (in Belgium, I think):

Marcin Wichary (a Googler I know) also posted some pictures he took of San Francisco on New Year’s Eve:

View the whole set, it’s worth it. I really like the way the fog interacts with the lights.

Normal posting should resume soon.
