  • New Page: Teeshirts

    I added a new page, Teeshirts, to this site. It joins my other pages: Reading, About Me, and Quotes to Make You Think. It documents my teeshirt collection from sites like Thinkgeek, Woot, and Threadless. Yes, I already track my shirts with photos tagged with the term “teeshirt” on Flickr or Teeshirts I Own Pinterest board. Unfortunately, people do not seem […]

  • Information Diet

    Do we consume too much information? I might. Lately I have thought about reducing the amount of following I do. Typically I hit this point when I realize it takes me all weekend to catch up. To be fair I reach this point by getting all caught up over a long weekend and seeking out […]

  • Flickr: Most Interesting 2011

    David Wilkinson has a cool tool I like called Flickr Set Manager. It daily looks at my photos and updates several sets of my photos. One is my most interesting 120 photos. The others are the most interesting 30 photos for each year. Below is a slideshow for 2011.

  • Curious Bird

    Found outside Romano’s Macaroni Grill in Tallahassee, FL. My best guess is a Broad-Winged Hawk. I went outside and tried to get another better photo. Without glass obscuring my presence, he or she was very much aware of my presence. I could not get close enough to take a better photo.

  • Flickr: Most Interesting 2010

    I probably should have posted this at the end of the year. Oops. Anyway, here are my most interesting photos for last year. Sets for 2009, 2008, 2007. Luckily, I have the post for the 2011 equivalent of this post pre-scheduled for Dec 30, 2011.

  • Goal accounting

    Here is the progress made on my 2010 New Year’s Resolutions. Read 12,000 pages. At last count, I was on track to succeed with this one. Learn to cook 20 new dishes. FAILED. Made only 10. Participate in Project 365. FAILED. I made it to February before I gave up on it. Have fun now not later. SUCCESS. Went to […]

  • Library Netflix Model

    I tend to buy books. As Heather pointed out on Flickr, I could save lots of money by checking books out from the library. I don’t for one big reason. I am lazy. Most of my purchases fall within a sweet spot of wanting to read more about something because I heard about it on […]

  • Scott Kelby’s 3rd Annual Worldwide Photo Walk

    Just like I went on the walk last year, I went on the Scott Kelby worldwide photo walk in Athens this year yesterday. One local called us the paparazzi. Another asked if there was a photographer convention. A couple of my takes: Flickr Groups featuring photos from Athens and other walks: 2010 Scott Kelby Worldwide […]

  • Clinton and the Tree

    Clinton and the Tree Originally uploaded by Ezra S F We really wanted this tree in the photo. The problems: 1) illuminating the tree enough, 2) not over exposing Clinton, 3) hand holding the flash and trigger. Cranked the power up to full power. Wes aimed it at the tree. Clinton is essentially just getting […]

  • Protected Post Password

    I imported all my LiveJournal posts here. Other than posting pictures to there from Flickr, I don’t really use LJ anymore. I rarely even read my friends’ blogs there. Too bad. I still have the teeshirt. Most of my LJ posts are protected. For this site, I’d rather have them set to private. So the […]
