…for 2008—unless something compelling pops up between now and midnight. This messy, sunset sky is from Monday, when BART (running 5 minutes late) and Amtrak (running 2 minutes early) conspired to keep me at the Richmond station for an extra 45 minutes. I guess the mass transit gods wanted me to see this sky over […]

…is a good thing. But, laundromats can feel like marginal places. (From a depopulated laundromat on a post-Christmas day.)
…of the Downtown Berkeley BART station, Christmas Eve morning. Slow day today. Got in to work, had coffee, checked email, had lunch, headed home. Happy Christmas Eve Day!
…& Space (& Star Trek) Museum. Miss T and I routinely visit Southern California (we have family there, after all) and are well acquainted with the weather, and the beaches, and the Mexican food. One thing that we don’t associate with SoCal, though, is Star Trek. Being set primarily in space, I can’t think of […]

If you don’t mind near-total darkness, the hours between 2:30 and 5:30 a.m. are good candidates for having the beach to yourself.

…fog wins (the morning). It’s been foggy in the Central Valley—the entire Central Valley—the last few days. Yesterday, the mist didn’t lift at all. Fog in our neck of the woods, tule fog, isn’t like San Francisco’s—it doesn’t race along the street at 30 m.p.h. momentarily obscuring and revealing jaywalkers as you whip around corners […]
…Christmas Fair. It’s become a Max Pictures winter holiday tradition to visit The Great Dickens Christmas Fair in San Francisco. So, this year, like so many years before, Miss T and I met up with Programmer Girl (our friend and Dickens Fair denizen) at the Cow Palace for a day of Dickensian fun. From the […]
