Ride a Bike!

Below is a video of Representative Patrick McHenry (R-NC) mocking the suggestion that bicycles may alleviate some dependance on foreign oil. I put over 4,000 miles on my bike last year, and not even a quarter that many on my car. I fill up with fuel every other month or so. The reason I can do this is because my city invested in a bicycle infrastructure (a few signs, bike lanes, tunnels, paths, and even a couple bike signals) that allow me to pedal to the store, work, school, etc.

Rep. McHenry - maybe a bike would also help you and your constituency shed a a few pounds?

Those are my eyes and my cup of coffee, however I didn't trigger the shutter on this one.

Yeller Watermelon

I've been buying these little yellow seedless watermelons from the farmers' market. They are so incredibly tasty...

Berry Nice to Eat You

I was playing around with an external flash last week and this is about the best that I had to show for it. I think I need some practice or I just need to stick to natural light.

These two were at the farmers' market Wednesday. They had been goofing around playing with one another for about a half hour when I glanced over and saw this. The one with the hair did not look amused when her friend finally let go. It is all fun and games until someone loses a fistful of hair.

Pretty Flower

I have a weakness for flowers. I guess that is what nature intended.

Yellow Sponge Looking Thing

This looks like it was taken at the bottom of the ocean, but it was with a bunch of cacti.

As I was riding home last night from the farmers' market I stopped by to hear the last song of the evening. BeauSoleil (wiki) was playing on campus as part of some summer concert series. I managed to take a few pictures, below is Michael Doucet playing the fiddle.

Duck in Putah Creek on the UC Davis campus. If you've ever seen Putah Creek, you know I photoshoped this picture a bit.
