I guess this gives new meaning to "seize the day."

The Awakening
East Potomac Park
Washington, DC
Fall 2005

This sculpture, by J. Seward Johnson, Jr. was placed at Hains Point for the 1980 International Sculpture Exhibition and Conference. Whatever its history, it's way cool.


Another view.



From the sublime to the ridiculous. . . here we are, playing tourist.

Vancouver's a big city, tons of condos and high-rises. A reclaimed patch of land just to the southeast, across False Creek, is the Granville Public Market. We went there Saturday, one of two sunny days in a week of rain.

ETOX Lunch Bunch
Vancouver, Canada
September 2006

Every year Dave's lab gets together for a lunch--past and present students. This year Andrew Grosovsky joined us. We ate at Imperial Chinese Seafood Restaurant, although after eating there, we think it could have been named Highly Imperious Chinese Seafood Restaurant. Good food, though.

Salt Lake City, Utah

The family trooped to the far side of Temple Square for pictures, and here was this perfectly textured roof against a perfectly lovely sky.

Door to Heaven
Disney Concert Hall

Dave and I walked all around this place near sunset, when the blue tones of night were creeping in. You could use up a whole disk taking photos of Gehry's intriguing creation.
