Santa Barbara. 'Nuff Said.

Santa Barbara: Part 2

Looking away from the ocean, you see this huge picturesque mountainside. The brown patches are from the fires.

Santa Barbara

The view from the front of my hotel. I can see why people want to live here...

Pair of Dice

This week I will post pictures of California starting with the view
from my hotel in Santa Barbara.

Blurry Milestone

I don't know if this counts. It had 24k when I bought it.

And The "Not My Job" Award Goes To...

C'mon, could they have at least moved the leaf just a little?

It's All Fun & Games

Playing Madden 09 trying to get into the playoffs. C'mon Cowboys, don't fail me (again).

I Was Part of the Inaugural Parade... Sorta

So the NASA SPR (which I mentioned beforehand here) is a lunar rover for the next generation. It was a part of the inaugural parade for President Obama, and here I am sitting in the driver's seat.

Not So Hot in the City Tonight

So I went to check out what savings I could find at my local Circuit
City. Nothing too impressive, but the do have Guitar Hero for 20% off...

Happy New Year!

Yea, I know it's a little late but I got a great present! My boss did my annual review and I was very happy with the result. Plus, he brought me a bottle of scotch. Why would I want to work anywhere else? And yea, we put a bit of a dent into the scotch...

Fresh & Clean

Just finished washing my car. Her name is Sally.

Geek Night!

Finally watching Galactica for the first time in HD on my 67" tv. It was amazing.

For Those Cold Houston Winters

Yes, it does get cold here! This morning there was frost on my car. FROST, I TELL YOU!

Strange Fruit

So the tree behind my house has some berries on it. Probably poisonous, I'll check on the next door neighbor's dog.

He's No Billy Mays!

Here is the sham-wow douche bag in another commercial. He has that
face that you just want to punch.

Full of Fish and Finger Pies

I just saw the film Across the Universe and it reminded me of the joy
I feel when listening to Beatles music. I then found this sign in one
of my many boxes (yes, I still have stuff in boxes) and I wonder where
I should hang it. Ideas?

Cleaning House

This room looks nice and boring now. Earlier today, it was packed with
boxes, paper, and a small table. I feel like I've accomplished

Mellow Yellow

While testing out the Canon XT (which I haven't used in a while), I came across this little yellow flower and decided to capture it. I think it came out pretty good. But I am biased.

Riding in Style

NASA's Small Pressurized Rover (SPR) made a guest appearance at Johnson Space Center for the employees and contractors to get a look and even get inside. I helped in the development for SPR's cost estimates and it was finally nice to see one (even a test model) up close.

It's a Good Cause

Apparently it's awareness for goats with breast cancer.

To Boldly Go...

Yes, I'm a geek. Deal with it :)

Working Late

One thing I hate about this time of year is that I only see the
afternoon sun on the weekends. It's like I'm a child of a divorce.

Travel Day

Today I'm flying back home to Houston from San Diego.

Sunday, January 4, 2009

Bittersweet Find

A sports cap store here in San Diego had this hat in the back room. I was talking to the clerk about how much easier it is to find Cowboys gear in San Diego than in Houston. It is a bittersweet moment, since the Cowboys lost and didn't even make the playoffs. Woof.

Nice and Toasty

In the San Diego cool nights (yes, they are VERY cold) it is nice to have a good backup plan.

Foggy Mountain

The view from my girlfriend's balcony in San Diego, CA taken with Olympus 1010.


My old blog hasn't had a true update in quite some time. I spend a lot of time posting on Facebook or on Twitter, so I felt no need to pay any attention to poor old Sorry Attempts. I do not believe I will be posting on my old blog anymore. So I bring you the new goodness!
So here is one of my New Year resolutions: Take a different picture each day and post it. Granted, this isn't an original idea. Shawna, my former coworker and friend, and her husband, Andy, had a blog where Andy would post a new picture he took everyday. Most of his pictures ended up looking beautiful and quite fascinating. I will not be taking pictures like that (hence the name of the blog).
For a little background, I have two cameras: Olympus Stylus 1010 (point-and-shoot) and a Canon Digital Rebel XT (DSLR). I will try to change it up a little and please feel free to send me any suggestions. Enjoy!
