I'm thinking of trying to live-blog the NBA draft tonight by my cell phone won't take pictures because the memory is full or something.  Bummer!  On the plus side, I'm making some lo mein (veggie) so I'm pretty psyched on that.

International Grand Master

Been getting a little into chess lately.  Like anything, it's infiltrating my mind.  I saw a bird stalking some fish in a marsh and I thought about how it's important to not overextend-- to only strike when the time is right.  The same thing watching basketball, especially the defensive maneuvers.  Just like chess.  If anyone would like to play hit me up @ 50backflips@gmail.com.  I'm sure there's a way we could do it online.


out of practice

a little bit of a sluggishness lately, photographically speaking.  shots that aren't just so.



where are the big trees

I think I'm just about ready to go back to B&W for a while.




out on the south side of town.  Some terrible stuff down there that I look forward to figuring out.


Fairway Acres

I thought when taking this one "this is some of the nicest light I could hope for" and I'm not 5000% disappointed.  Could have used a little wider of a lens.  This was on the bike ride to the taqueria.  It was a nice path but for one section of a narrow country road with the Indy 500 going next to me.  Otherwise for a while I was on a dedicated bike path, which was nice.  And some side streets.  Biking and trying to use the iphone GPS is pretty harrowing.  I don't have a good system for that.

J&W Photo lab in Raleigh, NC

J&W Photo lab in Raleigh, NC: You'll get the hang of it some day.  Ripping sunset though no?

the beginning of something?

there is an outrageous system of drainage in Raleigh.  Culverts out the Wassu.  I can't figure out if I'd rather do it in color or b&w though.

This bar up in St. Johns across from the burrito place used to be a guaranteed good time-- get a beer and go sit outside and sit in the sun drinking it watching the people coming out of the burrito place.  Well now they outlawed drinking outside there so I moved 3000 miles away.

Haven't had a good burrito since I've been here, or any good thai food or any good Indian food.  And they have soda pop in the produce department at our neighborhood grocery store.  I did get out to one good taqueria but their burritos were wet burritos which you can easily order on accident if you don't know how they're serving.  Wet burritos basically are nauseating.  I'd try the place again though I bet they have good tacos at least.


I'm looking for an east coast equivalent of this fellow, too bad man because he's one of a kind man.
