Have you ever seen Madrid, Spain in black and white?

We continued our walk west towards Plaza Mayor from the Parque del Retiro and I took many photos along the way to try and show a little bit of what life is like for those that live and work here.

The diversity of wildlife on this planet is enormous.

I’m easily distracted by any photo op.

After riding the rails to Denver, Karen and I caught a cab to the Car Rental lot in Denver near the airport. As she inspected the car I caught a glimpse of a bunny face-off in the small patch of grass separating the lot exit from the street. I dropped my luggage and grabbed my camera – I no longer cared about what kind of car we would rent, or mileage, or color, or insurance, or anything else. My whole world revolved around capturing the images of those bunnies. The scuffle was short and I missed a chance to get the loser flipping backwards – but the victor hung out with me for a few shots.




Karen apparently turned around to ask me a question and discovered I was no where near the car – I heard her mutter something like “Where’d she…

Happy Birthday South Sudan (via The Mzungu Diaries)

July 12, 2011

Nothing necessitates the printing of updated maps more than the birth of a nation.

Happy Birthday South Sudan I have seen RPGs before. They're funny because they look like toys. A gun is a gun, but an RPG is a stick with a rugby ball on the end and it looks comic unless it's pointed at you. What I had never seen, however, was the sheer array of weaponry that South Sudan insisted on lining its roads with in the run-up to independence. Not that you can blame them, though. As the bus enters Juba it passes a long stretch of road on which the rectangular shad … Read More

The Wondrous, Santa Barbaran Fourth of July Fireworks Show (via modeofaide)

July 5, 2011

I miss watching the Fourth of July Fireworks Show in Santa Barbara. I watched the fireworks show during two stints of summer school at UCSB in 2000 and 2001. The first time, I watched it with roommates from my apartment at the hillside where SBCC is located. The following year, my friends and I parked at the outdoor mall, Paseo Nuevo (where the parking was free, a welcome treat for us broke college students at the time), walked State St. all the way to Stearns Wharf and waited for seven hours before the fireworks show took place directly above us.

The Wondrous, Santa Barbaran Fourth of July Fireworks Show We were running late.  Shifting around scores of people as we rushed along the downtown section of State Street, we began to both hear and feel the explosions in the sky.  It didn’t matter.  Our patriotic endeavor was successful.  The only thing more pleasant than the fireworks themselves were the looks on people’s faces as they gazed upon the blinding colors.  Independence is beautiful. Neon explosions. The intermezzo. The denouement. For those … Read More
