manzanar, and before, and after

So, day 2, I wake up after not the most restful night. I’d spent about 3 hours sleeping in the hammock, and when that got too cold, I moved to the tent, which was warmer, but really uncomfortable, as I hadn’t brought a ground pad. I went into town, got some breakfast, and decided I just wanted to get moving.

So, I started off down the road. I’d expected it to be a shitty 2 lane affair, but found an expansive four lane highway for a lot of the journey south. I put a lot of miles under me in the first few hours, and the country was no less amazing than what I’d seen the day before. I shot out the window, while driving. It’s not nearly as dangerous as it sounds, when you’re the only car on a four lane road. It’s also not terribly productive, but I can’t stop myself.

Then, I came to Manzanar. the middle three pictures are all from there. It’s one of the things we as a country should be ashamed of. It’s a pretty long list of things. Like a good tourist, I stopped, took my pictures, and moved on. It is worth remembering, though.

mono lake

Looking back, I wish I’d spent more time at mono lake. I’d spent the whole firs tday stopping, though, and really wanted to move on. These photos are all from all the stopping. Still, really amazingly beautiful.

pass part 2

Anybody get the pun in the title? Passe-Partout? no? just me? ah well, I’m allowed to be a little goofy after the day I’ve had. this is the second part of the pass, where it got really amazing. For some reason I can only see these pictures with a ton of contrast, in black and white. Sorry if they’re a little over wrought. It was sublime. Wilderness and danger all around, but pulling me further on. Of course, on the road, there was only a little danger, inherent in driving a winding two lane road.

rim of the world

So, over labor day weekend, I went on a nice little road trip out to death valley and back. To make things interesting, I decided to go out through Yosemite. There’s a road to the north of the main valley, Route 120, which goes to Mono Lake. I’m breaking this up into smaller bits so I can process the photos slow enough to do a good job, and not take 6 months to come up with a one post edit. This isn’t a magazine.

I took these photos from an overlook called “The Rim of the World,” where there was a very large fire last year. Hundreds of thousands of acres on fire. It was pretty unreal. There are hapier pictures coming, lakes and mountains and desert, but I had to start somewhere.

another day

These are from what, a week ago? The day I visited twitter, and the day before I lit out for the hills. The view from their deck is pretty nice. I know thee aren’t Death valley landscapes. Those are coming, soon enough.

not today

Well, that little experiment lasted, didn’t it? Anyway, driving through the desert with no internet put a dent in the posting, and work this week has neen pretty busy, so I haven’t had an ounce of energy to spare.

I turn 30 today. Four years ago, I was in Egypt, at the Pyramids. I wasn’t going to go to the pyramids; it cost $40 or something like that, and I was short on funds. Plus, I hate tourist traps. But, my parents sent me some money, and so I went. I was glad I did.

Here is a photo of phoes that I took on my road trip to Death Valley. They didn’t go with the landscapes that are coming later, bu I couldn’t bring myself to cut them.

today 8 26

I deleted over 1000 lines of code today. That was the easy part. I worked on the watch on lunch; board rev 2.2 is at the fabricator. I fixed some things at work, made some other things work better, then I came home. I shopped, I cooked, I cleaned (although not as much as my lovely wife). I used a trick I learned from a cartoon to make my sauce less salty. Archer, thanks. Now it’s time to sleep.

vlad’s app party

This was what, sometime in April? Vlad is a friend from the internet, I think, and he’s definitely ‘from the internet’. His birthday party was app themed. My app was “in development” because I’m terrible at costumes. My wife, the genius, went as a polaroid app, and took pictures and printed them on demand. There was an instagram, a draw something, an ATM app, a recipe app… you get the picture.

today, 8/25/2014

The weekend was cray. 12 hours of work on saturday on the watch board, and 8 hours of drinking on sunday. There was no time to blog. Still, if this is a four day a week enterprise, that’s not too bad. I may also start posting some things from the backlog, beacuse my daily grind is a lot of the same old construction, busses, and sidewalks.

today again

It seems like it’s today every day. I tend to lose steam towards the end of the week, because work + watch dev + photography is a lot of stuff to do. I thought today was wednesday until late in the afternoon. I’m glad tomorrow is Friday.
