  • Pic of the week + a story

    Finally a picture with a story I can attach to it. I was headed home from a cafe in the city when I stepped off the bus in Union Square. Before me was a photo that I had to take — and I did (see above).
    After I took my pictures a middle-aged couple (seen at the bottom-center of the photo) walked up to me and asked “is that a digital camera?”. “Yes”, I replied. “So is everything going to be digital one day?” “Most likely”. “Tell me, what midrange camera would you recommend?” I mentioned the PowerShot G6. The husband then asked about the (Canon) Digital Rebel and I told him about that.
    After talking to me for a minute he decided that he wanted the Rebel. I never revealed who I was, and I have no idea how he thought that I was some kind of authority just because I had a camera in my hand. Nevertheless, that was my good deed for the day (and possibly the week)

    Man, is it cold outside or what?? It’s about 8:15pm and my thermometer says 35 degrees. That’s cold for California!

  • One of these days

    I have been craving a trip to Yosemite for well over a month now. It’s only about two hours from here (to the place where they take your $20, not the valley floor) so getting there is fairly easy. I love taking pictures there so hopefully I can make it soon.

    Boy is it good to be home! That’s enough driving for this year.
    I took some fun pictures of Jackson, my sister’s dog, while I was down south. Click below to check them out.

  • Showers for short people

    Posted on November 27th, 2004 Jeff Keller 1 comment

    I’ve spent the last few days in a hotel in Southern California while visiting my sister. The shower in this hotel must be made for washing midgets, small animals, or people under 5 feet tall. I stand about 6′ 1″ and the damn shower head comes up to my shoulder, which makes getting your hair wet an adventure. What idiot thought this was a good idea?
    On a related note, I am the Priceline master. $50 a night for this decent hotel (save for the showers) which means one room for me and another for the folks.
    Oh, and special thanks to whoever has an open wi-fi network near the hotel!

  • 2004 SF International Auto Show trip report

    Yesterday I made my annual trip with my dad to the big auto show in SF. There really weren’t any exciting cars, save for a few supercars that cost more than my house. Click the link for a ton of pictures.

    The airboat level in Half-Life 2 makes me want to puke. Apparently I’m not alone.
