Went up to the Poconos this weekend. Left the camera in the car for most of the day. But the last hike of the day had some fun picture spots.

Tools of the Trade

For this Project 26 photo, I decided to take a photo of a graphics card. By trade I'm a software developer, so I thought it would be appropriate to take a close up look at a computer part.

Thanks guys! I struggled with what I should take a picture of for this one... A keyboard seemed kind of boring, and code seemed like it'd look incoherent to most people. Then I realized the heat sink on my graphics card had a kind of interesting look with the circular repeating fins and went for that.

New Beginnings 

I got started in photography with a film SLR (the one pictured) and a simple philosophy: Carry it everywhere. I think in 2014 I've gotten way too far away from that simple thought of always having a camera. So for 2015, my goal is to always have a camera, digital or otherwise... I think I missed way too many moments in the last year and way too many opportunities for photos. I want to focus less on what to bring and more on just having something if I can't bring my whole kit out. 

I may not take a photo every day this year, but the photos I don't take this year won't be from lack of opportunity this time. And that's the biggest thing I want to change in 2015.

One of my coworkers and good friends was nice enough to get us a Mensch on the Bench for the first night of Hanukah. Here he is watching over our menorah.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season!

It's kind of hard to be upset about anything when you look at this Corgi.

Went to Cape Henlopen, DE yesterday to enjoy the beach. Found a light house off the coast of the peninsula and was treated to a sunset.

Project 26 B&W

Remember that whole bring your camera everywhere thing from my first shot? Yeah I brought my camera to work with me for this shot, left it there Friday with the shot on it.... Ended up coming into work an hour early to process the image. Upsetting. 

Here's my Project 26 B&W for last week.

Introduction
I'm a proud member of the bull moose and squirrel party. I use that to mean that I'm a fairly liberal minded person, but I feel that neither the democrats nor the republicans really speak to my actual views. 

As far as what I post... I have a variety of interests, and a number of people have circled me for various things. I post about photography (and my photos, I try to make sure to post 3 or 4 per week atleast), technology (kind of have to, I'm a software engineer), home brewing, and political issues. 

Any beer recipe I share here is shared as creative commons attribution, share-alike. Meaning you're free to repost it, share it how you want, modify it, brew it, etc. as long as you attribute it to its original source. 

All of my photography is creative commons, share-alike, attribution, non-commercial. Meaning you are free to share my photography (however it must be attributed to me) for non-commercial purposes.

I used Jack at Stanton to tailor one of my suits. He did excellent work very quickly. The suit fit very well when he was done and it was done in less than a week.

Great lunch spot! Incredibly friendly staff, very reasonable prices! The food is actually pretty good. It's very reasonably priced, like a guy could eat there for 8 bucks or less at lunch, for decent mexican. I particularly enjoy the chicken fajitas.

Beautiful hotel! Absolutely great service! We stayed here the night after our wedding. I have to say this is one of the best places I've ever stayed. Every single detail was amazing. The champaign they left for us in the room, the decor, the alice in wonderland book.... I highly recommend the Monaco and any kimpton property. The Monaco is especially beautiful, and I can personally say the staff is all great. Down to the bell men who helped us pack everything into our car after the wedding.

They have the most delicious cold brew in the city! Great service, highly friendly staff. I like to go once a week to go pick up coffee... One of the girls behind the counter is responsible for the cold brew and has been incredibly helpful with tips on my own home cold brewing, both in terms of technique and which coffees are best.
