Vanessa and I drove up to Seattle for the weekend and had a wonderful time. I wanted to share some of my favorite pictures from the trip, and will likely write something about the trip in the near future. For now I’m pretty exhausted after spending nine hours in a car. Enjoy!
Check out this video for Lily Camera, a camera that you simply toss into the air and it’ll follow you while recording 1080p video. This looks like the perfect companion for a GoPro so you can get overhead and first person / action shots. The camera is available to pre-order at $499 and releases in February of next year!
I stepped outside earlier tonight to run down to the gas station and was met with a thick, creepy fog. There’s something peaceful about the fog as well, in the way that everything around you fades away into the quiet night.
I took these pictures outside my room here in South Korea during a storm Friday night. Being stationed in Idaho I’ve missed the summer thunderstorms of the east coast (in my two years in Idaho it’s almost never stormed). I enjoyed sitting outside and watching the lightning and purple skies. Unfortunately I missed out on some really great pictures (I accidentally canceled out while they were still processing), but at least I captured a few.
Last weekend we biked out to the Farmer’s Market and I took a few pictures around town and of Freak Alley so I thought I’d share them with you. I love going to the Farmer’s Market, it’s great to see all of the local products and the people behind them. It’s always an enjoyable way to start a Saturday morning.
Yesterday afternoon Vanessa and I biked to the Edwards Downtown Boise movie theater and saw Pacific Rim. I know I’m a few weeks late, but hey I still haven’t seen quite a few of this year’s summer blockbusters (Man of Steel, Wolverine, etc.). Overall I really enjoyed the movie. The action sequences are quite exciting and there’s always a lot going on on screen. It’s quite visually appealing and it will certainly get your adrenaline pumping. If you take time to ask questions, however, things can easily start to break down. Why are they fighting the dinosaurs (Kaiju) in hand to hand combat? If they have those powerful phaser cannons, why can’t they stand back and just bombard the creatures with those until they die? What about freaking laser beams? The monsters are made of flesh, why the hell aren’t they using swords? Laser swords? If these guys are military why do they have long hair?
Anyway, almost any action movie will start to break down if you start asking questions, and I know the answer is “It’s just a freaking movie!”. Overall it was an enjoyable experience and I definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn’t seen it yet.
It’s been two weeks since I got my new road bike and I’m absolutely in love. It’s such an amazing feeling to leave the car at home and hop on a bike and ride anywhere in town. It’s great to smell the fresh air and feel the wind in your face as you cruise through the city enjoying the scenery. I’m really envious of those who live and work in the city. I’d love to bike to work on a daily basis. Unfortunately I work and live on an Air Force base and it’s just not the same (the scenery of course is quite lame).
I love the way the city looks and smells with no windshield separating myself and my surroundings. It’s incredibly refreshing and relaxing, and not having to navigate parking garages and pay to park is just another benefit.
I took a few pictures from our ride to and from the theater yesterday which you can find below.
