Still Life with Glassy Babies

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

Some fun around the house with some flowers, a bottle of wine, and some glassy babies. More on SmugMug.

Seattle @ Night

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

My new office location on Beacon Hill has a pretty sweet view of downtown Seattle, and on nice days around three o’clock I often wish I could be outside shooting some pictures in the early twilight – sadly, work usually wins. So, after shooting some pictures off the EMP earlier in the day, I headed [...]

Abstract @ The EMP

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

A few weeks ago, the assignment for my photography class was “the abstract photograph”. I was struggling a bit to find a compelling subject. That Sunday, we went to Zeek’s in Phinney Ridge for lunch, and as we were walking around after lunch, I was trying to create some interesting abstract pictures. Some of the [...]

Green Lake in November

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

A few more pictures around Green Lake in November. I shot most of these as part of my black and white assignment, but I think for the most part they work better in color. View the rest on Smugmug.

Autumn in Black & White

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

A few weeks ago, I had a black & white assignment for my digital photography class. It was quite challenging as I had never shot in black and white before. It forced me to look at subjects much differently, focusing more on their “luminosity” as opposed to their color. The weekend that I was shooting [...]

Fall Pictures from the Arboretum

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

Trying to catch up on my small backlog of unposted pictures… Here are a few taken on an autumn Saturday morning in and around the Washington Park Arboretum in Montlake. View the rest on Smugmug.

Meagan’s Birthday and the Story of our Engagement

Monday, November 24th, 2008

Meagan turned twenty-eight on Friday. We went to Nishino, one of our favorite sushi restaurants in Seattle and the place I took her last year for her birthday / post engagement dinner. Since that event predated my blog’s existence, I figured the one year anniversary of the occurrence was cause to tell the story. It’s [...]

Jury Duty, Continued

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Shortly after I wrote my introduction to jury duty, I was called for an actual case. There was one other “draft” for a smaller district court case (read this for an explanation of the difference between municipal, district, and superior courts in Washington) with only fifteen potential jurors selected, but I wasn’t one. I was [...]

Jury Duty

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

I was summoned for jury duty earlier this year, and after postponing twice (honeymoon and then Boston), I am at the King County Superior Court in the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, fulfilling my civic obligation. This is my first jury duty experience. It’s been pretty pleasant so far. They have wifi and a [...]

Calendar tips

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Following on my hockey advice from a few weeks ago, I thought I’d chime in with some calendaring tips. If you have a hockey game at 9:35 pm on 11/11, don’t mentally confuse the date of “11/11″ with 11 pm and put 11 pm into your calendar. If you do, you might foolishly drive half [...]
