Testing a new plug-in, here is London.

Now that flickr has redesigned me out of the picture, I’m going to hopefully be posting things I’m interested in here instead. I’m testing a new plug-in today, and I think it will work! Very exciting for me.

Ten favorite pictures for 2009

This year was a year that I didn’t take very many photos. This year, the pictures were about being in the right place at the right time, rather than about improving skill. My really terrible point-and-shoot has discouraged me to the point that I’ve been using the iPhone camera more than it! That being said, here are the picture that made me pleased this year (only one of them an iPhone picture in the end).

The fact that this is blurry plays into why I like this picture so much. It looks more like a painting to me than a picture.

At the very end of spring, everything is covered by a beautiful moss. Most of the sidewalks near me have sidewalk stamps with the date they were installed (in my neighborhood, usually 1911-1920) and the name of the sidewalk builder.

The only iPhone picture in the line-up. I’d like to take this one again with a better camera.
