Madeline and I took a tour of Flagler College in St. Augustine this past Saturday, and I really loved the interior of the main dome. By the way, all of the gold looking stuff in this photo really is gold (leaf). Henry Flagler pulled out all the stops for this place!

This past Saturday, my wife and I were walking along the Avenida Menendez in St. Augustine, and saw this lonely Hibiscus bush. The flower, with traffic behind it, made a compelling picture.

The one and only bloom on our Christmas Cactus. I took the photo this morning. We haven't had a decent cold snap this year, so the blooming is going to be late.

While putting the garbage and recyclables out on the end of the driveway this morning, I spotted this small spiderweb in the grass, still covered with dew...

We went to the Museum of Arts and Science (MOAS) in Daytona Beach yesterday, chiefly so I could shoot the train cars.  The 1954 Lincoln Continental was just the icing on the cake.

Hey +Sunny Wu, ever think about medium format digital? :D
From now until December 24th, Hasselblad is offering 40 percent off of their H5D series of cameras and lens bundles. They are also offering 20 percent off of lenses when bought with H5D, H5X, and Certified Pre-Owned bodies. If you've been waiting for the right time to purchase a Hasselblad, this may be it.

I was in the office working when Madeline told me about the hawk sitting on the privacy fence behind our house. Since the privacy fence is only eight feet behind the house, I grabbed my 6D + 24-105mm lens and took a series of shots. This one is my favorite.

Beautiful! This is a bird picture my sister would love in a frame on her wall in her home! She is a bird person and this one would make her smile for sure! Nice job Howard!

We woke up to another foggy morning today. I quickly grabbed my X100T and went out front in search of a good subject for today's spider web photo. It's amazing how many webs you can see when they are covered in mist or dew. The sun was starting to break over the trees when I found this one.

As we were leaving The Trails shopping center earlier this afternoon, we spotted some Bird of Paradise plan blooms.  Here's one of them.

I just finished flashing the new WRT54GL and making it a mesh access point, and connecting it to my mesh network.  I was able to successfully connect both mine and my wife's smart phones to the mesh network, and using AndChat (IRC client for Android), was able to connect to the IRC server with both, and have a conversation.

This really is some awesome technology!

Are you an Amateur Radio operator?  If not, it's easy to get your license now.  Broadband-Hamnet is just one of the many interesting things you can do with a ham license.

Frankly, I find Broadband-Hamnet to be one of the most interesting Amateur Radio projects in many years.  The ability to build a very usable network by simply bringing two or more mesh nodes within communications range of each other, without having to do any further configuration, is pretty awesome.

One of the ham groups in our county is working with the county Emergency Management team to create a back-up network, using Broadband-Hamnet, between the Emergency Operations Center and the local hospital, which is about four miles away.  The hospital is also working to create a back-up network with other hospitals in the region, also using Broadband-Hamnet.

These are interesting times in which we live!
