Chapman School, Portland, Oregon. The Vaux's Swifts pour into the chimney at Chapman School. For two weeks every fall, they provide an amazing spectacle. I highly recommend attending if you never have. Picture just don't do it justice.

I walked around as the local first thursday art fair broke up and just clicked off a bunch of shots at f/5, IS01600. It seemed a reasonable approach for someone without much time to devote to thinking about photography lately. I really liked some of the images that resulted.

This one really grew on me. It's been sitting around until I found it again tonight. It reminds me a lot of this photo from a while back.

A lucky evening encounter after some go and beer at the lab.

I'm not so sure I like this one, but here it is... Just a quick click...
02.05.06 • lush (3)
This one was taken a while back (the same trip as the other Columbia Gorge photos). Since getting my home server back online, I was going through the archives and found this one.
On the lack of new photos lately, I recently suffered the loss of both my home server and "darkroom", as well as my free time. Work has kept me plenty busy enough with computers that I hadn't until this weekend had the gumption to buy, install, wrestle, and invariably curse my way back to where my old server was. Thankfully, while the install didn't go as planned, I did end up managing to get my old root partition to simply (okay, that's a lie) boot up on an entirely new system. So, back in business. Now if I can only manage to find the time to take some pictures.
12.24.05 • statue man #2 (3)
A composite of statue man doing one of his patented moves. I'll be trying for a shot tomorrow too, but just in case, heres wishing everyone a Happy Holiday!
A special Christmas Eve rule breaker today, as I usually restrict width to 750px. To retain some of the detail on this one, I pushed it out to 900px.

This statue guy performs all the time downtown, standing perfectly still for long periods, occasionally breaking out some glass ball juggling trickery. He's very good.

Yep, this is right across the street. And they start at 7am. At least for the moment they've put away the jackhammers.
11.19.05 • night crane (1)
So I went and missed the first birthday of this site, which should have been November 6th. I started a new job this week, so I know now I will officially not have much time for lots of photography for a while. Expect posts here and there but not so frequently.
This was caught last night on the roof. Last week they constructed a very large crane across the street, which looked kinda cool at night. It took two other cranes, one small, the other medium, to construct the large crane. Interesting to watch.
Oh yeah, and Happy Birthday to my dad!
10.30.05 • best costume (1)
A Halloween poker party brought out the best in Paulette, our best costume winner.
10.26.05 • autumn leaves (2)
A quick trip to the Japanese Garden was a must with the trees changing. Always rewarding and frustrating. So many shots, and so few good ones!
I used a blured overlay layer for this shot.

Columbia River Gorge from Crown Point. A common shot, but the fall colors are really starting to make it worthwhile.
