Today, I received the Olympus PEN E-P1 micro four-thirds digicam. The E-P1 continues a long tradition started with the first Pen camera released in 1959, the year of my birth. I’ve posted an unboxing set […]
On June 10, I sold my beloved Nokia N96 and the N79 abandoned by my daughter for the E71; the proceeds paid for the N97, which I purchased from Nokia USA. For the price of one N97, I could have bought two iPhone 3GS smartphones with some money left over. My N97 arrived on June 12, seven days before Apple and AT&T started selling the iPhone 3GS.
Why spend so much? As I’ll explain in the next post, on first impressions, the N97 is a mix of well-balanced capabilities.
A rare sighting of clouds. Yeah, it really sucks living in San Diego.
Last night my daughter asked if I could buy a Santa hat for her to wear ice skating with friends. But I couldn’t find one anywhere. You would expect them to be sold out on Christmas Eve.

I approached and cheerfully asked if they could suggest a store selling santa hats.

I took this photo during the National Cherry Blossom Parade 2007, in Washington, DC. This year’s parade is in two days, April 12. I live in San Diego now. Sigh. I used Canon EOS 20D […]
I was contacted tonight about this photo being used, under Creative Commons license, for a DC travel guide. It’s from the 2007 Cherry Blossom Festival. The guide found the photo on Flickr. I snapped the […]
Sigma DP1 ISO 800 test: My daughter and coach watch the Skate La Grande on March 28, 2008, in San Diego.
My family spent part of the day at Torrey Pines State Reserve. We walked the beach on a day where the temperature reached 21 degrees Celsius. Oh joy!
