It’s ferry in Friday night. We had dinner at Shanghai 1930. Tea Smoked Squab, Garlic Noodles with Shrimp, Crispy Short Ribs and a Red Bean Crepe for dessert. They even poured me a Scotch on the rocks for free! The food was great, but the place was too dark to shoot any photos.   Start […]

I almost die every time I mow the backyard lawn because of the slope. I often wonder how the pros would handle this on a bigger scale… As I was driving home from Los Banos today, I got my answer. I captured this with a drive by shooting of the preferred professional method right at […]

Today I shot some photos while driving to Modesto without even looking, just to see what I’d get. As you can imagine most of the 58 were junk. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

I swear I didn’t mean it. I was working in Stockton and happened to notice there was a Jollibee right across the street. I had lunch there but made the mistake of telling Sandy I ate there without her. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

As soon as the SD980IS was announced by Canon, I ordered one (and a 7D & G11, shhh). This new model has a touchscreen. The battery is charging right now so we’ll do some testing tomorrow. For all you out there with cameras, you can’t hold on to them too long or they’ll devalue in […]

Someone from the office forgot I was in Honolulu and called me at 5:35AM. Since I was up, I thought I would treat myself to breakfast at the hotel restaurant… $16.00 for pancakes! Forget that,  I went back to Honolulu Coffee Company and got a chocolate croissant and a cup of coffee. 3 more stamps until I […]

Woke up at 3:30AM and finally got outta bed at 5:30AM. Went downstairs and had a cup Kona Coffee and Banana Bread on Kalakaua Avenue, watched all the tourists. Took off for work at 8:00AM. Ate lunch at Pearl Harbor Popeye’s. I think it’s so funny to be eating Popeye’s in Hawaii. Got back to the hotel […]

In the 70’s when I was quite younger, I hated going to the barber. Back then it was cool to have long hair… 35 years later I love getting a haircut from Sandy. I never have to make an appointment. I’m the only customer so there’s no waiting and the clippers have more than paid […]
