ah, the third birthday

Here's Everet's third birthday party. After a long day of playing on the bouncy slide and opening presents, Everet took a moment to enjoy a sucker in the fall afternoon.

Trash at the park

Here's my favorite picture from a photowalk at Lacy Park in Pasadena. I like the repetition here. There were 8 trash cans in a row. Ironically, there weren't really any trash cans anywhere else.

GPS PhotoFinder

GPS PhotoFinder, originally uploaded by billaday.

This is the ATP PhotoFinder. Its goal is to geotag (add to a map) photos. You plug your memory card into this, then into your computer. It works decently (40% success rate) with my Canon SD870IS, and has not worked so far (ever) with my Nikon D70s. So far, I'm bummed that it doesn't work very well. I'll keep you updated.

Software-wise, I bought the Ovolab Geophoto. I wanted to geotag my iPhoto library. This is lame. Don't buy it (until they make it way better).

scaled perspective

I had to buy ink for my classroom printer. Walking toward the store, I happened upon this gem. With a graphic like this, the angle from above seemed the most powerful option.

don't ask, don't tile

don't ask, don't tile, originally uploaded by billaday.

I dig the reflection of the tile inside the tile. It looks sweet from far away, but I've never been able to capture how it looks in person. The closer crop (shown here) gives the best impression of the bathroom. Anyway...

I hate sunrises

I hate sunrises, originally uploaded by billaday.

I took this photo before leaving for work. I'm sad that the sun was already this high in the sky at 7ish in the morning. I take minor solace in the fact that the backlight on this tree was sweet.
