192/366: Springing

One of the surest signs of the imminent arrival of spring is the appearance of these little purple flowers in our back yard in large bunches. I have no idea what they are, but they’re kind of photogenic, so… Having spent much too long on the Internet, I can just about convince myself that this…

191/366: M-O-O-N

Really not a lot to say about this one. Pretty nice crescent moon last night, still had the telephoto lens on the camera, so: this shot.

189-190/366: Technology

Having done a thematic set of animal photos, it makes sense to complete the catching-up process by pulling together a couple of shots of man-made things. 189/366: Tower This is also from my trip to the post office the other day. The tall tower is a broadcast antenna of some sort from the CBS station,…

185-188/366: Critters

Sunday and Monday were wrecked by SteelyKid getting sick. She was actually only really ill on Sunday, but that was highly miserable. Monday, she had to stay home from school, and we spent the day watching the original Star Wars trilogy (which she had refused to watch on two previous occasions…). So, there weren’t a…

184/366: Odyssey

I seem to have fallen into a thing where I take pictures more frequently than I edit and post them. I blame the kids– SteelyKid got sick on Sunday (her third bout with strep in the last five months), and The Pip has decided to get a jump on Daylight Savings by waking up an…

I’m going to be at the March Meeting of the American Physical Society in Baltimore next week. This is the largest physics meeting of the year, with an emphasis on condensed matter physics (which is actually the largest single area of study within physics, though media overemphasis on particle physics and astrophysics might lead you…

182-183/366: Dunking and Monkeying

Thursday was a travel day, the less said about which the better. So, while I do have a couple of cell-phone snaps from the day, I’m just going to ignore it, and give you two better photos from Friday and Saturday. These go nicely together, as you can see in the composite that’s the “featured…

181/366: Luxury

There’s a sort of Internet tradition of posting photos of hotel-room views when traveling, so here’s a very slightly artsy version of same: The first time I looked out the window, there was a big-ass truck parked directly in front of it. I like this version a little better, though. Kidding about the accommodations aside,…

180/366: Delay

I spent Tuesday flying to Champaign, Illinois, which was probably a big mistake. I should’ve booked a Southwest flight to Midway Airport in Chicago, and rented a car to drive down to Champaign, but I decided that might be annoying on the way home, so opted to fly the whole way. Which meant a United…

179/366: I Am Number Six

Sunday was a beautiful day in Niskayuna, so after going to campus to deal with some paperwork, I went off to a park to take some pictures. There’s a town park down on River Road that sits on a high and scenic bluff above the Mohawk, so I figured I’d give that a look. And,…
