302/365 bed landing

figured I could improvise a better landing than my pilot did in Boston today. Luckily I was landing on a Hyatt bed, not a concrete runway, but still – I did a better job.

301/365 forgive me kylie!

someday she’ll find this photo and hate me. Runny nose, potty time, strange face. Till then it’ll be worth it.

300/365 three hundred

since my 100 and 200 this year were kind of flops, I was all set on doing a proper 300. Then I totally forgot about it, then when I remembered I tried to think of something interesting (all that I could come up with was recreating the movie 300 which after a quick search, has been done to death) so right when I was going to throw in my hat, I remembered I hadn’t put Nyla’s jack-o-lantern in yet. So, not really sure of the connection to 300 but at least it is festive.

299/365 alone in a sea of clouds

drove over to Marin to grab a group shot with the Golden Gate bridge and saw this guy camped out beyond the fence waiting to grab a shot of the bridge. The fog was just rolling in, fast and furious right through our vista point and the sun was still fighting to stay above it. Something about the scene made me want to capture him instead of the bridge.

298/365 albuquerque

spelling lesson – who can actually spell Albuquerque? I finally got it down and then I realized everyone here just writes ABQ. Well, ABQ may be my second home for the next few months. Not sure how I feel about that, and not in love with no direct flight on Delta from SF, not in love with the fact that Breaking Bad was spoiled for me while I am still on Season 3, but super excited to be here! ABQ also appears to the franchise capital of the world – never seen so many chain stores in my life.

297/365 bed jump prep

back in a hotel again and of course first order of business – bed jumping. But instead of just posting another bed jump, figured I post the moment before – concentration, focus, timing, the combination of immense raw talent and highly trained skill that all comes together before the bed jump – yep, this is what it looks like.

296/365 pumpkin carving

finally got around to carving the jack o lantern today. Now that Nyla is 4, she got to design her first face, both girls got to clean out its guts, and then the grownups got to carve. I’m sure the jack o lantern will makes it appearance on a future 365 post so I’ll leave us all in suspense with this shot instead.

295/365 candy corn time

candy corn is one of those things that you just have to eat in October. The amazing thing about candy corn is that they taste great in October, but only in October. Dare to eat them in September or November and you’ll surely regret it.

294/365 pinch me

30 cameras, all triggered at once? Yes please. Bullet time for your face basically to make your 3D head – this is one of the amazing things I found at Autodesk this evening – a company that I thought was a used car company but now realize is amazingly awesome. If you happen to be strolling around the Ferry Building in SF, stop by the Autodesk Gallery for a free mind explosion.

293/365 best friends

this morning Toshimi’s best friend Machiko came to visit from Japan. She’ll stay with us for a week and it’s great to see Toshimi spend time with a long time friend. And it is Machiko’s first visit ever to America, so hope she gets to see some SF while here.
