Is it that time of the year already? 2010 has absolutely flown by! One of my favorite ways to reflect on the past year is to look back on it through the photos I’ve taken.
One thing I find particularly striking is that I’ve used my iPhone and Canon S90 more and more, and my DSLR significantly less. It kind of bums me out. Something I’d like to refocus on in 2011 is getting back into using my DSLR!
Anyway, let the review begin!
We started the year off by seeing a friend’s brother make a guest appearance during a Beats Antique show at the Independent in San Francisco. (If you haven’t heard them, do check it out. Some great tunes and a good show featuring some interesting interpretive dance!)
We also got to dog-sit for our friends Scott and Marcie. Can you say cutest dog ever?
Of course, our cats would have something to say about that. Jealous, much?
More music, please! State Radio (one of my favorites) at the Fillmore.
Also, San Francisco can have some seriously great weather, even in January! Hello, colors!
The cats were always demanding attention. This was fun to wake up to.
Overall, a pretty mellow month! I did finally get a chance to go out and use my DSLR. A new sculpture was put up at Patricia’s Green in Hayes Valley.
It’s only February, and I already feel live I’ve been taking an overwhelming amount of cat photos.
I got a new bike! Hello, beautiful!
Traveled to Austin for SXSW and gdgt live in Austin. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to take many pictures. But I did snap a photo of this bacon bloody mary. Umm, yes!
Returned to the Left Coast to spot this crazy art car in the neighborhood.
Doggie Diner Heads at the Laughing Squid going away party.
Bonfires on Ocean Beach!
Waited in line early in the morning for the iPad launch. An AP photographer snapped this photo as I picked up an iPad for the first time ever.
Might as well put the iPad to use — banana bread baking!
Explored the SF Underground Farmers’ Market. Pretty damn crazy!
Random trip to Southern California, where I stopped by Galco’s Soda Pop Shop. Crazy amounts of soda! Check out my post on Laughing Squid.
Stopped by my parents’ place and got to see Axl. It would be the last time I’d ever see him.
My old-roommate Julie celebrated her engagement with her new fiance, Ryan. A mighty fine looking couple!
And because of this, Kerry and I got to play dress up!
Also, Bacon Camp! Went to support my friends on the Starvin Marvins BBQ team!
And here are the tasty, tasty MOINK balls they made.
Another gdgt event! This time, we visited Chicago — where I decided to use my phone to take crappy pictures with crappy toy camera apps.
gdgt live in Chicago was fun though!
June rolls around — it’s WWDC time in San Francisco, and that means a new iPhone is coming out!
So, of course I was there for the Stevenote on behalf of gdgt. Hey, Steve!
Later that month, I hung out with the Starvin Marvins team again as they went to a BBQ competition.
Huh, it seems like I haven’t taken cat photos in awhile. Time to fix that.
New iPhone 4 finally arrived. I hear it has a pretty good camera. Time to test it out.
Also, the World Cup was going on! So, obviously we had friends over and it was time to cheer on the Red, White, and Blue. (Of course, Sanjin shows up in a Croatia jersey, but I guess it’s the thought that counts.)
Speaking of Sanjin, he got married!
Needed to get away from the oppressive fog in the city, so we ventured up to Point Reyes, for a day of oyster shucking.
We also got ourselves a new office! No more working out of our apartments. Pretty nice. A photo from the early days.
Camping trip season! I discovered a creepily familiar Paul Bunyan.
Sitting around a campfire…
And back to the city and dealing with our transit system.
I love the F line.
And another Apple event soon approaches…
Another Apple keynote. iPods, Apple TV’s, oh my!
We went out to Sacramento to surprise and cheer on our friends in Starvin Marvins at another BBQ competition.
They won second place for their chicken!
gdgt live in Boston! This time, I’m flying out early, so I can check some things out.
Near MIT – Kendell Square
Who met the Tron Guy? This guy!
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival arrives in town. I can’t think of a better way to spend a foggy day in the park.
It’s October. Do you know what that means? Hear that sound? “It’s the sound of freedom.” This time, I rented a gigantic, 400mm lens for the Blue Angels’ show.
There were also some pretty crazy clouds in San Francisco.
Also, a street food bonanza was happening at Off the Grid.
Working across the street from Blue Bottle Coffee was proving to be dangerous.
Kerry took me on a surprise visit to the Napa Valley Wine Train.
This thing called a World Series happened in San Francisco. Since I’m a Dodgers’ fan, I have no idea what that is.
San Francisco kept looking mighty fine, as always.
Party in the streets, as the Giants would go on to win the World Series.
An election happened…
City Hall was bathed in orange for the Giants win.
A World Series parade…
Aubrey Huff wears his “rally thong.”
It was homecoming (for gdgt). gdgt live in San Francisco preparation resulted in tons of boxes in our office.
I don’t care what people think, I still love dogs.
Quick stop in Southern California for a wedding in Laguna Beach.
Returned to San Francisco to find this nearby. Someone had a rough night.
I also began my transition from a hipster into a yuppy.
What can we say about December? It’s rained a lot.
My dentist apparently has a crush on me.
Prepping for some awesome things in the 2011. It results in late nights at the office.
(And the month isn’t even over, yet!)
