Every year, I choose my favorite photos from the year and combine them into a single post. This is my 2020 edition. Like last year, I didn’t post enough pictures on Instagram to have a top nine. My criterion is pretty simple: is this something I’d print and enjoy on my wall? Which begs the… Continue reading My favorite photos of 2020
This last week we had our yearly summer family vacation. This entry is as much diary as pictures. Friday After an atypical last work day before vacation day, we packed up and headed off to our family summer vacation. A couple of the kids had left earlier in the day, taking a kayak and a… Continue reading Family Vacation — 2020
A couple of old standby views from my flight from Portland to Sacramento.
Melissa and I headed south to Sacramento — she, back to school, and me, to work in Folsom for a couple of days. It’s nice to have company when traveling. :-)
It’s nice to have a new pocket camera for taking snapshots out of the plane window. It was cloudy most of the way so I didn’t see Mt. Thielsen, Diamond Peak, or Crater Lake. I snapped this shortly after takeoff from PDX. As I walked in the gentle mist in Folsom, I heard someone say,… Continue reading Yet Another View From 19E
After a bunch of playing, I take another trip down to Folsom. Dirty windows, hazy skies, and flying too far west to get good views of Diamond Peak or Crater Lake results in this: a heavily edited snap of the engine, wing, and sky over Northern California. Happy trails!
Oregon was covered in clouds for today’s flight from Portland to Sacramento. I happened to glance out the window and catch Crater Lake through a small gap in the clouds as we flew by. California had a brown haze on the horizon, making only high angle shots reasonable.
Another trip to Folsom for work. Having a window seat, I spent most of my time watching the ground fly by.
The trip to Sacramento was uneventful. Well, maybe not quite. I did sit by Tim, who works sqrt(2) cubes from me, and learn what he does. And I was able to identify Mt. Thielsen, the unknown peak from last week’s post. Success!
Another flight means another picture post. Usually, when I fly between Portland and Sacramento, I get a window seat on the right side so I can see Crater Lake. I was hoping to see something different, so I reserved a left side window seat. We took off, crested the clouds and headed south. I snapped… Continue reading The View From 3A
