By popular demand, I give you the area behind the fence. You can see the recently planted scotch grass that needs to get growing. Uh that's about it. It's steep, it's under some trees, yep. Nothing to see here, move along.

The fence isn't close to done thanks to the mere hour of daylight after work. Hooray for daylight savings on Sunday.


There's some more plants now. The one on the left is named Larry.

Janky dryer vent setup

So I could leave the dryer vent alone and let it outlet under the house. Or I could go back to what I presume was OE and run it across the back of the garage to the side of the house. But in the interest of a clean looking solution I'm venting into a sizeable garbage can in the side room.

Of course, the only thing that comes from the pipe is moist, hot air so there isn't much for the bin to collect. It worked pretty well for my first load of clothes, there was condensation on the bottom of the can and nothing got exceptionally hot.

The above image brings about the important question of whether I should insulate and drywall the side room for style and comfort, or leave it as is for easy access.

Assignment five was due today. Tuesday night I hadn't shot anything so I made a few stops in La Jolla and Carmel Valley to basically document myself harassing friends. It went pretty well.

In class we did polaroid transfers. I dug up some old slides from Alaska and the '03 fires. The process loses a lot of color, some framing, and significant sharpness, but it's cool to be able to stick it on stuff.


... or maybe I am just making up the whole thing. But either way it starts a good rumor.

doode.. you have to share the dream.. that's how it goes weasle!

i woke up agitated like the D76 developer!

If you happen to watch Lost and tivo tonight's episode, check the teaser at the end for '... and loyal ties will be tested.'


Nah, I put down plastic so I could use it for storage.

That does not look like my home at all. Come shoot the bookshelf, all the color plates are in place.

style and comfort? any room that s mostly fucking dirt doesn t need drywall for style.



Having brought in the railing to align with the support pillars, there was an extra bit of usable space around the edges of the deck. So I turned it into planters.

Looking for more green

The grass is growing steadily, though not evenly. No worries there, I'm in no rush, but I'm happy with the color and consistency of the Bermuda.

Full frame

I rented a d2x this weekend. It handles quite well, all the extra frills don't diminish usability. A d3 is probably out of the question for the next camera purchase, but I'll be interested to see how the d700 compares. The most noticeable differences...
