Look what I found in the fridge today! It sure made my picture of the day an easy choice. I can’t believe there are only two days left.

 

Day 354 – fishing for ideas

Posted in Uncategorized by Dave on December 20, 2010

With 11 days to go, I have really been fishing hard for ideas.  My Accurate Boss 870 Twin Drag never lets me down so I figured I’d pay tribute to it here.

This reel is state of the art. It’s also American made and manufactured right here in California. With their patented twin drag, you get twice the stopping power. Their drag is the equivalent of  f1.2 bokeh. Smooth and creamy. Yep, I’m a geek.

Day 349: the begining

Posted in Uncategorized by Dave on December 15, 2010

This is a Pentax ME film camera. Circa 1976. Back in the day it was considered “automatic” because you could select the aperture on the lens and it would choose the shutter speed. Manual focus. Manual film winder.
In college I took a photography course and “borrowed” this camera from my Dad. Apparently I never gave it back. My instructor wouldn’t let me use it because it was too automatic. I haven’t used it since.

I dug it out tonight and while playing with it realized there is still a half loaded roll of film in here from my college days in the 80’s. Who knows what’s on here. Maybe I’ll get the roll developed. Maybe I’ll just leave well enough alone and keep the 80’s safely tucked away in an undeveloped roll of film.

Day 347: Aston Martin DB9 Convertible

Want to travel at 190MPH in style?  This car can do it.  Nope, I didn’t take it that fast but it’s still pretty cool to go 60 with the top down and a 1,000 watt stereo system playing. This car is amazing. Wow.

Day 340: Papalote

This is some darn good salsa! My neighbor has a friend who makes it so he asked me to take a picture tonight.

Day 334: Tie

Today’s score:
Life – 1 , Me – 1

I had a good day at work. I had a terrible commute home.

I finished off the month really strong at work. As irony would have it, the 30 mile commute home took me through 3 Sig Alerts and an overturned semi. Two full hours later, I was safely home. Tie game.
