Fail at blogging

Wow, I fail at keeping a blog current. So, what has happened since the LAST update almost a year ago...

Hey, it's still here...

Well, it has been far too long since I've done any updating on this. Some of this I blame on Facebook..after all, why update a blog when I can just do a short blurb for Facebook and not have to exercise my vocabulary and bore people with verbosity. I've probably since lost my one or two readers, but, talking to myself is nothing new.

Changes to the site

Hey all, my one or two readers may notice that I'm doing some changes to the site. I noticed with my trip to Lake Tahoe that I developed a serious case of verbal diarrhea which made some of the entries really long. Well, the blog has the ability to shorten the entries so that a smaller summary is at the top and the longer entry is available to those who need a nap and want more bedtime reading. So, I'm going back and re-editing some old entries, as well as making use of the categorizing function to sort the entries into other more locatable categories. Nothing else will change content wise, it'll just be a little more compact on first inspection. It will take a little time to get everything edited, but eventually it'll be done.

Lake Tahoe 2009 - Day 5

August 2

Today is the trip back home. It was a really awesome trip. Like most vacations unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Our flight out isn’t until the afternoon, so we decided to go take a run out to Virginia City. Anyone who’s a fan of old westerns, particularly Bonanza, will recognize the name of Virginia City. In the show, the Ponderosa Ranch was supposedly near the shore of Lake Tahoe, and Virginia City was the nearest town. It is also supposedly the “birthplace” of Mark Twain, the penname of one Samuel Clemens. Not that Clemens was born there, but where he first used the pseudonym.

Lake Tahoe 2009 - Day 4

August 1

Today we went to the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival where we saw Measure for Measure. What a great idea. Have a small amphitheater with Lake Tahoe as the backdrop behind the stage. Allow the patrons to bring in their own picnic baskets, and stage music or plays as the sun sets.

Lake Tahoe - Day 3

July 31

Today we decided to go rafting down the Truckee River. We chose the Truckee River Raft Co. There’s a number of companies that offer rafting trips down the Truckee, and it seems to be a very popular event. So much so that we had to make reservations for a specific time-slot. Ours was early afternoon, about 2:00pm, so we decided to grab lunch nearby in the Tahoe City area.

Lake Tahoe 2009 - Day 2

July 30

We decided to take a nice easy drive around the lake, and see what was there. The route around the lake is about 70 miles or so. The reason to do the leisurely drive was twofold: 1) It lets us see if there were any spots we wanted to come back to later, and 2) it gave us another day to acclimate to the altitude (Lake Tahoe is at 6000 feet or so).

Lake Tahoe 2009 - Arrival day 1

July 29th

We flew in on the 29th in the evening. A delayed flight from SD to San Jose, made it a little tense in catching our connecting flight to Reno, but, we did manage to get in just in the nick of time.

Yosemite 2008

We're back from Yosemite, and man what a fun trip that was! Going to Yosemite is cool enough, but going with a bunch of good friends is just the icing on the cake.

So I got the chance to use some neutral density gradient filters on some of the shots, and all I can say is..WOW. I need to learn a lot more about how to use them properly but I was amazed at the difference they make.
