OK, so McArthur Burney Falls isn't in Oregon. But we happened to pass close enough on the return from Oregon that we couldn't resist a little side trip to grab some more photos.

I think you would have to travel to another continent to find a more beautiful fall. It's hard not to get a good picture of this one.

Some straight-out-of-the-camera shots with the Nikon 24-120 f/4 on my D600. Random subjects, all full-size exports.

On our way from Crater Lake to Klamath Falls, I spotted this barn along the highway and just had to stop for a photo.

For those that have been wondering what the construction on Hwy 101 in Palo Alto has been, here's a link to the project's factsheet.  They're replacing the hwy and frontage road bridges over the creek there.  

Widening the bridges to reduce flooding upstream, and replacing the sides where the tidal action has weakened the bridge itself.  It's an old bridge.

Would The Fifth Element have worked as well as it did with someone other than Bruce Willis?

My opinion is that the casting there implies a huge amount of believable backstory. It slots right into Die Hard. This is a guy that walked barefoot on broken glass... Etc.

Who else could have convincingly carried the role?

There is something undeniably fun about adding cheesy, retro decorations to your cocktail glass. Many of these items still show up in bars because they are both practical and amusing, but they can easily be purchased for the home as well. And seeing them will often immediately whisk you back to childhood – as kids didn’t we all fight over who got the cocktail sword or beg to choose our straw color? While stunning garnishes like orchid flowers and gold flake are cool, sometimes it’s worth adding a bit of bright-eyed wonder to a cocktail. Besides, it’s impossible not to smile when your tiki drink has its own umbrella.

Introduction
Recovering from returning to the US after a year in Paris..   Due to a wonderful set of opportunities, I'm was able to live in Paris for a year with my wife and daughter.  It was a great adventure.

I like photography, cars, motorcycles, computers, acoustics/audio, and history.  I also find socioeconomic classes fascinating (and an interesting dichotomy from social classes).

Professionally, I connect lots of little things to big things (Internet of Things).

A note to commercial pages:  If you circle me, without me first establishing some sort of relationship (or communication) with you, I'm very likely to block you, and report you for unwanted commercial spam.
