181/365 finally a skyline

we’ve driven all over Seattle the past two days and what I have noticed is that Seattle has beautiful skyline views from every direction. It is awesome. This one however, is the most famous – because the Space Needle actually looks like part of the city and Mt Rainer is in the shot as well (right behind my head). Right after the sun set, Mt Rainer set as well so I wasn’t blocking anything. Anyway, its a beautiful location and 100 other people were there shooting as well.

180/365 batj reunion

its been six years since we last met, but Hans, Chihoko, Toshimi and AJ got back together, this time in Seattle, with the addition of three girls, Nyla, Sabrina, and Kylie. Great to see the Kehl family at their home and see that all is well post BAT for both of us.

179/365 and then there was none

went from tons of boxes to an empty house. Just me and my thoughts. And in a few hours, we say goodbye. It won’t be a tearful one for me, I can’t wait to be in SF. But before that, first stop, Seattle.

178/365 last box checked

one last place on the ATL bucket list, Clermont Lounge. Glad to have gone, glad to never go back. Oh, Atlanta, you never cease to amaze.

177/365 packed up

it is absolutely amazing how fast and efficient professional packers are. What happened between 8:30am to 5:30pm today was near superhuman. Would have taken us at least 5 days to do the same amount of volume of boxes, but in no way we could have done as good a job. Tonight is the last night the family sleeps in the house. Tomorrow we (family) go our seperate ways for a night, and then Friday we part from the house.

176/365 ya’ll come back now, ya hear!

waited probably 3 years to take this picture. Watched this sign slowly lose its paint and worried that we better hurry up and get out of dodge before the sign disappears. Anyway, don’t officially leave till Friday but in my mind, I’m already gone. Peace out ATL, I’ll see ya when I see ya.

175/365 ignitor team

after my own, my favorite team at Coke is the Ignitor team. The team consists only of John Clodagh & Guliz now, but they are flanked by dozens of “blackbelts” around the world. Now, even on the other side of the country we have found a way to work together which is awesome. So I had to make my picture of the day dedicated to the team, but just as I set up my tripod a cop car parked next to us with its flashing lights on which if course turned me from invisible to kinda visible seven times…

174/365 pool party

last weekend in ATL, last pool party with the girls’ friends. Super happy that everyone was able to make it and that the rain never came. Funny thing is that now with Facebook it (likely) will hardly feel like we even left.

173/365 too loud!

i’ll be a good sport and be happy that we came in second today at Startup Weekend Coca-Cola. And I’ll be conciliated by us winning the crowd voting award. Actually, screw that, we should have won. Kinda like Rotten Tomatoes – generally the crowd knows better than the critics. Anyway, my guess is this won’t be last time you hear of this business, Gutsmack. Stay tuned.
