Snapping Shots Around the San Francisco Bay

I went for a leisurely ride on a trail around the bay the other day and got a few decent shots that serve as extra motivation to save up for an SLR. I had a lot of opportunities for some beautiful shots, but am appalled by the graininess I got. Nevertheless, some turned out ok and I’ve got a couple fun ones:

These guys kept trying to elude me so I had to sneak into the brush, sit there, and be vewy vewy quite.

Apparently, I was very close to the Palo Alto airport which I’ve been told is one of the “busiest single-runway general aviation airports”. Look at that sky. Man, that blue would look so rich without the grains.

What the heck kind of bug is this?! It looks like a miniature anteater!

I think they followed me from Minnesota. Now I know where the Canadian geese go in the winter.

This one I actually took with my camera phone. I’m amazed it turned out ok, but sad that it’s not much worse than those taken with my point and shoot.

    and yet they don’t have any weather reporting!! sorry, i’m a nerd, and all i can think about is work.

  2. Nerd! A-hem, sorry about that, just slipped out. You said it first. ;o)

    I think the lack of weather reporting may be due to…oh, I don’t know…the fact that it’s ALWAYS nuthin’ but sunny here! The locals think a storm is when it’s raining.
