The Batman Exhibit on the Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Batman by DC Comics. I have always been a huge Batman fan as a kid and loved Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy. I’m currently reading the latest Batman comics. And yes – I’m also excited to see Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of […]

Looking for a new camera

UPDATE: In late 2015, I ended up purchasing a Leica T camera and absolutely love it! While I absolutely love the amazing quality of photos my Lumia Windows Phone stake (Lumia 1020 and Lumia Icon) – I am looking to dive a little deeper into photography. I previously had been using a Sony NEX-5 and […]

I’m on 500px

I’m on the photo sharing services 500px. Come find me! It has been a while since I was really “into” sharing my photography. It mostly came down finding myself not taking as much photos as I used to. However, I’ve decided to re-commit to photography. I recently have begun learning to try and take night […]

UPDATED 7/13/11: Some of the below has changed so I thought I’d update it and then pass the question along to folks again and see what kind of responses I get! Perhaps you can help me out and determining something: am I a geek or am I a nerd (or both). Quite often, I have […]

Testing Seadragon from Microsoft Live Labs

Thought I would give Seadragon a try. Seadragon is a technology from Microsoft Live Labs that lets you zoom in and pan around images from the Web. Images could have lots of text or just really big photos. This technology could be extremely useful in rendering large images with lots of text. Imagine a single […]

A Trip to Snoqualmie Falls

I moved to the Seattle area this last December and am continuing to explore the area and “see the sights” so to speak. I’m familiar with what Seattle offers but its the surrounding areas and the non-City stuff that is of interest to me. A few weeks back my girlfriend and I visited Snoqualmie Falls. […]
