Doing Shots #300

Taking photos of the locals while they were engaged with one or more of my traveling companions was a very successful strategy. The citizens of Oaxaca were very friendly and it was a great place for candid portraits.

One of the many vendors in the Oaxaca Zocalo had these wonderful hand painted skulls on display. Oaxaca was full of color and skulls/skeletons seemed to be a big theme there.

From the board game Rampage where one plays a godzilla like monster and scores points by wrecking buildings and eating meeples.

Thanks Elise! It's an amusing but odd game. I expect most kids would like it.

I didn't really plan to have a Cable Car theme going but I got this one on Tuesday while waiting for friends at Union Square. I went a little craze on processing but this one was begging me for the surreal treatment. B&W to follow.

I like the surreal processing. It somehow preserves it as a slice of SF history.

Introduction
I'm a software engineer in Silicon Valley just cruising from one tech bubble to the next and trying to stay healthy until the singularity.  I fully appreciate the fact that it is a golden age for someone with my skill set in my part of the world. 

My past-times are numerous and tend towards the technical: flying, ballroom dancing, and photography to name just a few.

I'm a die-hard libertarian and think everyone who isn't is just a little crazy in the "doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results" sense.  I would gladly sacrifice security for more freedom - and that's not even considering the fact that security is mostly just an illusion anyway.
