First Church of the Sofa Free

First Church of the Sofa Free

For those of you who follow my work on this blog -- that would be, um... you, and... and you -- this will be my last post for some time. I am embarking this afternoon on my fourth sabbatical, and will spend the next six weeks traveling here on the West Coast and a (too-brief) stint in Eastern Europe. With luck, I'll have a few opportunities to take some pictures in that time; what I probably won't be doing is posting anything, either here or on Flickr, until I'm back.

In the meantime, I leave you in the more than capable hands of my esteemed fellow blogmates, Tom, ahab and William.

See you all again some time in early December!

Nothing Can Stop Me

Nothing Can Stop Me

If you can stand it, here's one more from last Friday night. I have to say, I admired this guy's resilience. Also his willingness to pose, as the batteries in my flash were on their very last legs. After this shot, they completely gave up the ghost.

You Get Yours, 'Cause I Got Mine, for the Monkey Time

Monkey Shot

Another one from Friday night that I like. I was trying to keep the flash from making a big white spot in the middle of the window, so I tried covering it with my hand. I was pretty happy with the resulting mix of display subject and unintended reflections.

Hemlock Moon

Hemlock Moon

Caught in my neighborhood last night. Props to Mrs. G, who was on her way to the store when she called me and said, "You need to come downstairs with your camera and check this out."

I didn't get any Blue Angels shots, but I did get to tour the USS Milius.

Keep the Asterisks Flying

Keep the Asterisks Flying

I don't usually shoot the Blue Angels or Fleet Week, but this year I had access to the roof of my building and didn't particularly want to go out much, so...
