Hanging in the Air (Revisited)

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

After looking at the shot I posted yesterday, I decided I wasn’t very happy with the shot and attempted the setup again today. Here are two shots, one as a drop hits the water initially, and the other a moment after that as a droplet is thrown into the air.

San Francisco Hills

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

While climbing one of the incredibly steep hills in San Francisco I saw this old car parked on the side of the road, it’s a miracle that cars don’t just roll down those hills.
