Ethan and Aidan were playing around with Photobooth, Apple’s fun picture-taking software that accompanies the newer iMacs and MacBooks with built-in cameras.
A couple of the results:
And one that they liked better:
The painting you see in the back? It’s Jeroen Vermeulen’s … their uncle (and my brother-in-law).

This past Easter we, naturally, had an easter egg hunt. Each of the kids had a chance to hide the eggs and let the others find them.
And Gabrielle, being the creative girl she is, had to make it more interesting … with clues. Here they are …
Hrm …. in the library?
This doesn’t sound too […]
Just came back from a conference in Asheville, NC … up in the Smoky Mountains. It was freezing cold … -10 Celcius with windchill … so I only got out of the hotel once, really, and took these shots as I wandered the town.

I took the day off today and we spent the day at Mount Baker. Tubing, playing, feeding the birds … absolutely gorgeous:
Here’s a short video that I took while tubing … following Gabrielle down the hill:

I need a new digital camera just for myself that I can take with me wherever I go … been thinking of this one ever since I saw it in Wired mag. Available at JR for $319.
5X optical zoom
supposedly very nicely small
The problem: very slow start-up and lots of shutter lag […]
Last year we had snow. This year, we have more:

This is a “holy mother” moment:
everyday on Vimeo
Six years of a self-portrait every. single. day.
(And the music is great, too. I want to know where to buy it.)
Memories of San Diego this past spring:
(And testing Zoomr!)

Teresa and I recently took the kids to Osoyoos, BC, where we met up with 3 other families of relatives and spent a few days at a hotel. It was a much-needed break for all of us.
Check out the Flick photoset.
Unfortunately, Teresa broke her foot when we went horseback riding. The stablehands didn’t put the […]
A poster I made with FD’s Flickr tools and one of my recent photos. Click for a larger version.
And yes, I’m still trying to smooth off some of my sharp edges! (Patience is also a challenge.)

OK, so it used to be lies, damn lies, and statistics.
Not any more.
(Reuters, AP, and NY Times photo fraud, explained, demonstrated, and eviscerated, in detail. More details: check out this video.)

My new iPod just arrived - the 30 GB video version.
It somehow feels so much better than my 4th generation 20 GB version. It seems much slimmer (probably only a few millimeters), the screen seems much bigger (again, it’s probably not actually very much bigger at all) and overall just much more delicious.
Now I’m figuring […]
OK, the title is accurate. But that’s not really why I’m making this post.
Actually, what’s going on here is that I’m testing Apple’s iWeb.
Teresa mentioned that she’d like to have something from time to time that would help her create a digital scrapbook, and so I said I’d look for something for her. It needs […]

You can’t make stuff this good up:

I have a Sony DSC-W1 and have really enjoyed it: it’s incredibly easy-to-use. So now that I’m thinking about expanding, I’m wondering if I’d like to leave the Sony world.
I’d hate to have to know 2 or 3 camera operating systems and modes of operation - which I’d have to do if I bought from […]

Teresa and I were out shopping this afternoon … our main floor bathroom is about to get blown up and redone.
High time, too …
We saw this sand-blasted glass sink and faucet - beautiful. Unfortunately, due to irritating facets of reality (namely, pipes, […]
While in San Antonio a week ago, one of our local sales consultants took me to the McNay Art Museum.
The McNay has a beautiful collection of works by well-known masters, but one piece that caught my eye in particular was a Renoir. But it was a Renoir with a difference - it was a sculpture.
You may copy and use this image (”Link Whore”) in any non-prurient publication, as long as you give proper attribution.
San Antonio has some wonderful architecture, as I’ve previously posted. Here’s another taste.
They seem to like adding funky little additions to existing buildings:
Another one. Perhaps they’re even built at the same time as the main building - but they sure add some flavor to the design.
Lots of pattern and similarity in this government building near […]
