Intersection, originally uploaded by billaday.

I was standing on an island in the middle of the street during this 30 second exposure. I was about 2 feet away from traffic on the right, which is why the taillights are all over. I also found out that a wallet makes a good tripod when your camera is on a curb.

If you view this on black, the depth of field is pretty sweet. My PowerBook is starting to show its age with the cracked power button, but I still love it.

I like the composition of this shot. I spent a while trying out different Photoshopped colors. I settled in on this version, where the top layer's blending properties are exclusion (so the blue sky becomes orange). It seemed to pop more than my other ideas.

We went to Chuck E. Cheese for my 7th Annual Chuck's Mission (birthday party). My wife and mom played Mario Kart. They weren't very good drivers.

That's my eye. I shot the flash straight at me to get decent lighting. Looks like I need more sleep...
