Iceland Part 1
This is the first of 3 sets of my photos from my Iceland trip with Ben and Tim back in February and March of this year. It took me a long time to narrow down my choices from several thousand, and though I wanted to end up with just 100 or so in total, in the end I had a good deal more. So I'm splitting them up into separate albums of about 100 photos each.

In April of this year I went up to Tahoe and a bunch of people dropped by over the course of my stay. Sophia, Katy, Alen, Oliver, Corey, Austin, and Garth. A nice little trip, I want to explore it more!

Giants National League Playoffs Game 6
Oliver scored tickets to game 6 of the National Leage Playoffs, so I got to go watch the Giants earn their way to the final game (where they of course won and got themselves to the World Series).

Dew Tour BMX Streestyle Finals
Oliver and I headed to Harrison and Main to catch the BMX Streetstyle finals for the Dew Tour's stop in San Francisco. Some pretty impressive stuff.
Tahoe and Foliage 2012
A short trip up to Tahoe and down to Bishop with my mom in the hopes of catching some early fall foliage. We managed to find some, as you can see. Along with the normal dSLR, this is the first real outing for a recently re-acquired Olympus C7000 compact camera, the first digital camera I bought 5+ years ago, and one I got my hands on again recently because after looking at some old photos, I kind of felt like my newer compact(s) took crappier photos. So far I'm fairly impressed with the C7000, given its age. A true modern successor/update would be fantastic.

Shuttle Endeavor Bay Area Flyby
The Bay Area got its chance to say goodbye to our shuttle program with the Shuttle Endeavor's farewell fly over. Mickey S. Hobbs, Lakshmi Nair, and I had a pretty awesome vantage point on San Francisco Treasure Island. Thanks to Ben for the use of his mega 500mm lens and camera. Even a monster lens can't do much about atmospheric distortion though. ;-)

Burning Man 2012
A few photos from Burning Man 2012. I didn't bring any of my nicer cameras for fear of getting dust all up in them, so this is just my relatively crappy point and shoot. Hence the noise everywhere. Thinking of getting a new one soon. Still, some fun stuff in here. Enjoy!

White Sands in New Mexico is one of my favorite places. I first visited nearly 20 years ago, and then again about 10 years ago, and finally on the road trip last year. Every time I go it amazes me with its beauty. Each experience is new and different, but carries a similar magic that's hard to describe.

Fleet Week 2011
A quick selection of pics from Fleet Week 2011. Color correction is not that good, this is just a quick upload to get some stuff out tehre. Only minor post work (some cropping) other than that. I figure there are tons of other awesome shots out there so I tried to pick the more interesting ones.

May 1, 2011
We spent several cloudy, often rainy days at the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. Lots of challenges in exposing sky vs. ground, water, etc. Some HDR experimentation, and liberal use of Lightroom's sweet-ass graduated filter. Speaking of which, this is the first full album I developed and culled entirely using Lightroom. So far I'm liking it, but I'm really just getting used to its workflow. Once I'm "in the groove" with it I think it'll be a much better experience overall than Picasa. But I will miss the face recognition!
