4-image stack of last night's blood moon eclipse. Between poor weather and sensor noise, not as sharp as I'd like. But better than I expected to get, when shooting.

Yeah, this was SOMA. I'd say it was blocked by clouds 90% of the time. I got about 5 good frames.

Dawn at the WTC.
(Handheld because it was the only way I could get a clear line of sight out the window. The capabilities of current camera tech are ridiculous.)

The rate of gentrification in the Mission is accelerating at a mind-boggling rate. It's already changed a lot since I moved to SF three years ago, and now every block seems to have a construction site where an old building or vacant lot is going to be replaced by some expensive new structure. If they don't landmark some places soon, it's going to be all gone.

Mochi at rest. 

(There's considerable haze/glare from shooting directly into the light; I kind of wonder if it would have been better if I took off the UV filter.)

CA 89 on the way to Squaw yesterday. I'm still amazed by what the Nexus 5 produces, sometimes.

Out-of-camera jpeg of tonight's "blood moon" lunar eclipse. Won't really know if I have anything until I see the RAW files but in general conditions from SF were terrible - lots of cloud and fog.

Just a quick snap on a drizzly afternoon in the Haight. But for some reason, I like it quite a bit.

There is a poetry in the shot and a story waiting to be told. Let me try an ancient poem that tells a similar scene, thousands of years ago.
清明时节雨纷纷,
路上行人欲断魂。
借问酒家何处有,
牧童遥指杏花村。
Unfortunately it is in Chinese:) but don't try to Google translate it: it would absolutely ruin the paradigm.

Great, fresh fish and friendly service. Friendly service. A great value - lunch for 2 for $25 including a beer. We went twice and it was our favorite place in Kona.

Underwhelming seafood and inflated prices. $23 for a plain crab sandwich with no flavor. And then they have the nerve to charge 50 cents for a roll of bread. Our meal ended up being over $70 for two people having one sandwich, one salad, a beer and a glass of wine. Avoid this place and go to hogg island next door.

Great sushi with some unique and unexpected combinations. The various salmon nigiri were amazing and the tasting spoons were also fantastic, including the monkfish liver.

Consistent if unexciting mexican food. I get dinner here regularly because it's near my house and it's okay but not great. Generally a few dollars more expensive than other comparable mexican restaurants in san francisco.
