skywatch friday, week 6

[stanford, ca]

Last weekend I moved down to Palo Alto. It's almost always sunny and clear on the peninsula. I love the sunshine and pleasant weather, but on the other hand there may be something to lament in lack of variety. Chrome 3d's southern Finland skies, for instance, make for rather more interesting photos. Browse the celestial views to your heart's content at skywatch.

skywatch friday, week 5

[paucartambo, peru, 21 june 2007]

Sorry for the infrequent and verbally sparse posts as of late. I hope to be writing more once I move into my new apartment this weekend.

In the meantime, take a gander at the lovely and interesting skies posted by members of the skywatch community.

just a couple of reasons why I take my camera with me everywhere:

skywatch friday, week 4

Since I started work this week, the commute to the peninsula has me getting up before the sun. This is extremely unnatural for me, and I don't foresee many mornings when I will have enough spare moments to get out my camera and take a picture.

In fact, this photo is from last week, when for some unknown reason I woke up one day around 6:30 a.m. and, glancing out the window, decided that the view was good enough to capture on film. Metaphorically speaking, of course, since I don't really use film. And after I took the picture, I had the luxury of going back to bed for a few more hours. Ah, the good old days.
