This was the day of the 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk. On the way back to the car, I noticed these yellowjackets congregating around something. This became an excuse to pull out a closeup adapter and attempt some macro photography. I had to get pretty close though which caused my girlfriend some consternation.
The photo and processing was done a long time ago so I can’t comment on it very much. It looks like I had a predilection for overly saturated colors back then. 😉
I just was feeling the giant row of carts receding all the way into their garden center.
When Marie was shopping, another shopper was indignant, “I can’t get at [a free sample] because your cart is in the way.” I think if you can’t deal with giant-assed shopping carts, you might want to shop somewhere else.
Shopping at Costco in the ‘burbs is always a study in small contrasts:
There they are using new shopping carts that are cut lower in the front and are much quieter than the old metal ones in the City.
I also noticed that a shopper had left a half-eaten resealed bag of beef jerky in the book and DVD aisle. You’d think with all the free samples, they could have not been so cheap. Especially since I noticed that there are far more free samples here than in the city.
I found a term used by the Costco employees who gather the carts: “leave behind.” As in, “Dude, there’s a whole pizza leave behind back there.”
[Erik][erik moeller] finally wore me down. I decided to start [contributing my images][upload wizard] to Wikimedia Commons because, you know, I like work here on features and stuff. (**[Download or link the above image on Wikimedia Commons here][sunrise on commons]**.)
The license is mostly compatible with the way I currently release images as an amateur phtoographer. But since I prefer people contact me for derivatives or commercial work, I down sampled to 1024px JPEGs as a head nod to the more liberal Creative Commons license that Wikimedia uses.

As I start taking photos again, I’ll release more images to commons… I promise! 🙂 (Oh yeah, they’ll be 2048px images in the future, so that [PediaPress][PediaPress] can use them.)
It’s been four years [since I last wrote about my cousin Juno][thanksgiving chicken]. I haven’t changed much but a baby grows up a lot in that time.
While technically he’s my nephew, he calls me “사촌”—사촌 (sa-chon) means cousin in Korean, so I refer to him as my cousin Juno. And apparently I’m a big hit with him—Juno constantly pesters his parents before family get togethers, “Is Sa-chon Terry going to be there?”
The reason why is I have a secret weapon…
iPhone attention Vicolleto, North Beach, San Francisco, California
What an amazing device, and an amazing cousin. Oh, to be a kid right now! Wait a minute…
We still are!
