the two of James I'll use

Pleasant Hill, CA

I need four shots for the homework assignment. These two my professor said would work for half of the assignment. However for other half of the assignment he suggested I go shoot a new roll.

Snapshots from the day

these two bikes were connected that I really liked.

The money I helped raise went to go buy more bikes like these for children with disabilities.

Some of the scenery at the after party.

There were all sorts of statements on the cars of those I rode with.

I heart my sailors as well

the party

Riding for charity

Graton, CA

Today I rode for charity. It was the easiest ten miles of my life.

Dum Dum Irony

Oakley, CA

When I got to Lumpy's today my waitress tried to convince me I was going to have Vanilla or Cherry Coke. I was in a little bit of a grumpy mood (low on sleep) so I told her I was interested in my regular Coke. Well, when you get ready to leave there are these Dum Dums in a bowl that I think are free (I sure hope they are free. I take one everytime). I took one without looking. It was a Cherry Coke Dum Dum. It looks like she was right - I was having Cherry Coke today.

a rope jumping model

I had to take some pictures for class that involved someone in motion. My first thought was of

Super Barack

Oakley, CA

One of my jobs at work is to keep the coloring pages stocked. Today I was looking for Hello Kitty and Spider-Man pages online when I ran across this one. He's in Healthcare, the war, student loans, ACORN investigations and now he is in Comic books. What a super hero!

(In case you can't read Spider-Man's bubble "Hey if you get to be on my cover can I be on the dollar bill?")

Meatball Sandwich

Antioch, CA

I went to Lumpy's today for my weekly lunch adventure. Today my waitress suggested the Meatball Sandwich. It was so good. It had a sesame seed hot dog bun on the bottom, then meatballs (5 or 6) then spaghetti noodles, then sauce then cheese then some green stuff sprinkled on top. It was a whole lot better than the meatball sandwich I'm used to getting at Subway. Today I also added a Lumpy's label - which should make it easier to find pictures of Lumpy's food.

Crockett, CA

I took my new film and my new film camera out to Edgley Pier to photograph in black and white. With me as well was my digital. Don't have a clue how (or even if it will) the film will turn out but here is from the same spot on digital.

A Palace by night


For our date tonight Amy asked if we could go on a walk. So we walked around the Marin Headlands and watched the sun set. Then we walked around the Palace of Fine Arts. After that I got a bit of courage and drove through SF to the Embarcodara where we took in the Bay Bridge and the Ferry Building. It was a pretty good evening.

Under the Bridge in Twin Falls

My dad and I met up with B'Shaun in Twin Falls at the Bridge. There was base jumpers there that were rather entertaining to watch.
