Happy Birthday, Fujifilm Finepix E900

I love my camera:

Hard to believe it's been a year; here's my first post with the new camera - photos from a show at Rudz in Houston.

This year has been, without a doubt, the most well documented of my life. For the previous 30-some years, I've barely got a handful to show for myself; yet, for the past 1 year, I've got no fewer than 4000 (and that's just what I kept; I trash 3-5 for every one I keep!) What's particularly amazing to me is that, unlike the rest of my life, the visual cues in these photos actually help me remember what I've done, where I've been, what I was thinking, etc. I wish I started sooner.

And, let it be said, Flickr also rocks pretty hard. But it's not my Flickr anniversary, so I'll save getting mushy about Flickr for another time.


Welcome, Summer

Summer has now officially arrived here in Austin. You can tell by the crushing heat ... but there are a few other signs, too.

Deep Eddy

We went swimming at Deep Eddy for the first time this weekend. Fantastic cure for whatever ails you, be it too much wine or too little.


Uberjam and I also got new bikes (we've been without since ours got ganked a few years back), and I've been riding around town like crazy. Austin is a pretty bike-friendly town, with all the trails & such, and I've been riding at least an hour a day.


Three cheers for summer. More shots, as usual, on Flickr.
