West Coast

Posted on August 15th, 2007 07:29 PM | Comments (0) | Pings (0)

Earlier this month, Kat and I flew out to the west coast to visit some friends, and to spend four days in Monterey with my family.

GPS + Camera

Posted on July 8th, 2007 08:18 PM | Comments (1) | Pings (0)

I’ve finally gotten the GPS connection working with my D200, and am loving the simplicity of it all: turn on GPS, turn on camera, wait for satellite fix, take pictures, enjoy the extra geospatial metadata.

Site Brokenness

Posted on June 4th, 2007 11:03 AM | Comments (0) | Pings (0)

I spoke way too soon in saying “We’re Back”. The server is up and running, and has been for a bit now. But the upgrade that caused all the trouble a few weeks ago has left my site crippled: None of the RDF-backed features (pictures!) are currently working because of mysterious problems with mod_perl and Redland.

Snowy Weather

Posted on February 26th, 2007 12:17 AM | Comments (2) | Pings (0)

After a week of highly varied weather, it snow a couple of inches this morning. It was apparently great snow for making snowmen, because there were four of them outside my apartment and I passed another four on a short walk around the campus.

Brighton Pier

I’m always impressed with Sam Javanrouh’s daily dose of imagery, but his recent shot of the Brighton Pier is wonderful.

Shooting in Boston

Posted on January 21st, 2007 01:43 PM | Comments (1) | Pings (0)

I spent all day Saturday in Boston shooting photos with Matt. I rented a Nikon PC 85mm lens for the weekend and we played around with it all around town. We had more than just the tilt/shift lens, though.

Earlier this month I spent a few days in Maine visiting friends and enjoying the scenery. Unfortunately, the foliage couldn’t seem to make up its mind, and the trees were mostly either green or brown.

Flickr Photo Maps

Posted on September 1st, 2006 02:06 AMPings (0)

It’s been around for a few days now, and I’ve got mixed feelings about Flickr’s new geo-tagging support. On one hand, they’ve done more for the cause of spatial photo annotations in the last few days than anyone has ever done before. On the other hand, the data still ends up being controlled by Flickr, and the simple coordinate approach to geo-tagging means that you can’t attach any other interesting data off of locations.

Two Weeks in California

Posted on August 17th, 2006 02:57 AMPings (0)

This most recent trip to California is coming to a close, but it’s been a great trip. I spent four days in San Diego with my parents, three siblings, two brothers-in-law, four nephews and two nieces. We had a great time visiting the San Diego Wild Animal Park and Sea World, paddle boating around and watching fireworks across Mission Bay, and attending a Luau.

Thunderstorm Season

Posted on June 23rd, 2006 12:06 AMPings (0)

The other night Matt kept pestering me to grab my camera and get some shots of the approaching storm. I’m sure glad he did because I got about 3 shots off from the balcony before it started pouring rain and this one captured the lightning very well.

Photo Strategies

Posted on April 27th, 2006 07:32 PMPings (0)

For a long time, I’ve tried to consider what the best way to present my photos on this website is. Here’s some background on what I’ve done in the past, what I’m doing now, and a solicitation for thoughts on how to move forward.

Back from Japan

Posted on April 11th, 2006 02:05 PMPings (0)

So I’m back from Japan. I have been for about a week, actually. It took a while to get caught up on sleep, though. I haven’t had time to publish all the photos yet, but I’ve put some highlights in a (Flickr) Japan Set. Expect more soon.

Last week, Kat and I spent a few days of spring break in Vermont, doing all the Vermont things we could think of. Also, I leave tomorrow for two weeks visiting Kabir in Japan.

Making Photos Private

Posted on January 27th, 2006 12:22 AMPings (0)

I’ve just made public a feature on this website I’ve been playing with for several months. After discussion privacy issues at ISWC with Libby and Bijan, I added support on the photo pages for marking individual photos as private. The idea here is that if you’re in a photo, you have the option of taking it offline.

Thanksgiving (with Photos)

Posted on November 25th, 2005 10:46 PMPings (0)

Last Saturday we had a great early Thanksgiving in Providence before everyone left town to be with their families, and this week I’ve spent the actual Thanksgiving holiday with family in DC. Photos are now online.

I’m drooling over the announcement of Aperture. The demo videos (and quite frankly everything I’ve read about it) make Aperture look like a near-perfect post processing application for photos. It’s clear that Apple took all the serious issues photographers deal with when working in digital, and thought long and hard about how to solve them. From the stacking of rapid-fire shots, to the backup vaults, the pervasive metadata support to the beautiful user interface, Aperture looks like a winner.

I’m back at the airport. Again. Back to LA for a week. I’ve got lots of work to do while there, and lots of other things to take care of, but I promise, I’m going to start posting more often.

All the Wheaton crew was back together this weekend, meeting in Freedom, Maine for Greg and Laura’s wedding. The weather was pretty damp and cold, but the rain mostly held off for the wedding, the reception was under a large tent nicely erected atop several birch trees, and a great bonfire warmed everyone up later on in the night.

OK. Everyday since getting back, I’ve promised myself that I’d post an update. And sure enough, every day I’d not do it. But today is different. Today is the day that I get back into the habit of posting. I swear.

Nikon is fucking up big time on this RAW debacle. The refuse to engage the community of their users, and it’s utterly frustrating. Engadget’s recent interview with Steve Heiner, head of Nikon’s DSLR group, had an obnoxious cut-in by Nikon public relations trying to avoid saying anything at all about the RAW issue, or Adobe’s DNG format.

I had intended to write a short bit about why you wouldn’t be able to browse pictures on this site by location for a long time, but two days of solid hacking on an good-enough solution using RDQL has gotten me so much closer than I would have thought possible just a few days ago.
