Fun fun fun in the sun! (27 Feb 2006 at 20:32)
I went through the last couple months of photographs that I never uploaded and then I uploaded some of them. You can find them in ye ol' Winter 2006 directory. (See also these two pictures in my fancypants gallery.)

I saw a bunch of lectures this weekend and it reminded me that I should really bring my camera to such things because then I can take some pictures for Wikipedia because I am such a Wikipedia nerd. So we saw Tom Hales and Dr. Ruth and then I finally remembered to bring my camera to Ira Glass's lecture. So you will see some Ira Glass paparazzi shots in there. I suppose this should have been pretty obvious, but Peabody award winning radio personalities, well, they tend to be really good speakers. I was surprised at how awesome his lecture was, and how often I found myself nodding along to what he was saying. OK, I am a This American Life fan now.

Tonight is our last (?) hockey class of the season, like, Superbowel III. It's time to win one for the pinky-finger!

(I can't remember if this is cliché) but everyone in your pictures comes out looking realer than people look in real life. How does that happen? And, are there particular photographers-of-people you admire?

Thanks! I don't know how it can happen that someone can look realer than reality. It might have something to do with the "unsharp mask" filter.

I admire anyone who can convince random strangers to let him take their picture without feeling or acting weird. I just can't do it.

(I meant that kind of fascetiously. Like I'm not so vain as that implies but rather you should take it as a compliment that you made me look so darn cute. Right? Right.)
