Today I got together with my coworkers for an early dinner meeting at Skates. This rarely happens… in fact, it’s the 1st time. There are only three of us in Northern California. Dinner was great as usual. Of course I had to run off and shoot a panorama of the Berkeley Pier. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Since I stayed indoors all day, we decided to go out for dinner and try that new Cuban restaurant in town, Havana. Entrees were skipped in favor of tapas. We had the Twice Fried Plantains, Halibut Ceviche, Mixed Grill and Crab Cakes. Everything was excellent! Did I forget to mention the Mojitos. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

I spent all day in front of my computer. I finally got some time to try out a new piece of Panoramic Stitching software. Autopano Pro works so well I went back to all those hard to stitch shots and created 38 panos. Woo Hoo! Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
