Hong Kong Part 1: The Sights

If I were to describe Hong Kong tersely, I’d call it a more civilized China.  It feels like a city halfway between old China and a western city.  The first thing I noticed there was that people drove on the other side of the road. Because of that, and the fact that people drove in [...]

Project365, Flickr, and more

My friend Jessica showed me the Project 365 iPhone app (iTunes link) which inspired me to finally try my hand at Project 365 this year. In a nutshell, it’s taking one picture for every day of the year so that at the end of the year, I have a picture diary. The main hurdle that [...]

Some pics from the Holga

Super Productive Night Time!

On some nights, when I get home from work, I just want to veg out and play video games, or if I’m feeling especially lazy, just watch TV. Tonight was not one of those nights. I don’t know what got into me. Maybe the rushing “oh crap, gotta finish this up before I leave” half [...]
