San Diego

My family and I went out for a wonderful dinner at Sushi Ota to celebrate my father’s birthday before heading down to Hillcrest to see Frida (in an empty theater). The drive down to San Diego was relatively uneventful. Actually, it’s good to be here, where I won’t be shaken awake by earthquakes (or by the construction across the street) in the early mornings. :)

Going to bed now. Here are some photos:

A beautiful tree outside of my old place in Mountain View. When green, it photographs wonderfully in infrared.

At a rest stop, while fueling up during the drive down the grapevine...

Sheep!

My Mom hides behind Wendy.

Delivering a Tivo to Norm and Teri. They were very excited.

    YUM!!! Man! Lobster Miso Soup?!?! Now I have something to try to hunt down in the restaurants on the East Coast! Great shots as usual Eric!

    [De-lurking Again] I like that Grapevine shot…was the blue that way or did you muck with levels in PS…polarizer? And, wow…no vignetting…hood?

  • echeng

    very slight photoshop mucking on the grapevine shot — the blue just came out that way. I’d expect a very dark blue at the top, if I had used a polarizer.

    And never any vignetting with the D60 because hoods are built for full-sized sensors. :)

    "And never any vignetting with the D60 because hoods are built for full-sized sensors."

    Doh. Duh. Just goes to show you that, while there may not be any such thing as a stupid question, there certainly are stupid questioners.

    Anyhew, hope you had fun down here ;) My friends are really buddy buddy with Kazumi (Kazoomi? sp?) in Hillcrest as well and they rave about it. But I know jack shit about japanese food. Hai!

  • echeng
