Fear not… I am alive!

Wow. It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly a year since I last posted! Thanks to graduating from college, getting a real job and figuring out how life works in the real world, I’ve sort of neglected my poor webpage. Perhaps 2008 will be a time to change that.

2007 was an absolutely amazing year though. How do I even begin to catch people up on what has gone on? Perhaps the best way at the moment is through Flickr.

Click on through, as I take you on a photographic journey of the last 12 months…

January 2007
Moved into a new apartment the previous month and still figuring out the new neighborhood. Of course, the view from our living room is absolutely amazing. This is an HDR photo that I took one evening.

Of course on January 9th, I was mugged and fought the attacker off with my tripod.

On Super Bowl Sunday, the Queen Mary 2 came to San Francisco for the first time to pay a visit. Went down to the Bay to watch it come in. What a *huge* boat.


There was a Valentine’s Day pillow fight.

Later in the month, my roommates and newfound friends rented a cabin in Lake Tahoe for a weekend of snowboarding and skiing. It was a blast. Fortunately, this wasn’t our cabin.

Also Buried

It was also the first time I’ve ever put snow chains on a vehicle. It’s a huge pain when it’s windy, cold and snowing.

March was a month punctuated by BBQ’s and anti-war protests. I love San Francisco.


More Peace

In April, two of our friends left for a two-year around-the-world trip. To celebrate, we ventured out to the East Bay to connect with the flora and fauna.

This month featured a trip to the island of Kauai, as well as San Francisco’s annual (and crazy) Bay to Breakers event.

I was also the official photographer for a website launch party (www.thebarbook.com)

And I was also punched in the face at a bar. That was fun.

And of course, jumping into icy mountain streams…
Wow... that is COLD.

Wow. July has few pictures. I did buy an iPhone and took a picture with that…

A pretty low key month as well. Traveled to Southern California for a bit thanks to work. Also took photos of various bands.

This is a friend of a friend’s band called Smith Point

September was the 40th anniversary of the Summer of Love. So we celebrated in true San Francisco fashion.

Zombies attacked San Francisco! Luckily, I was there to document the event. And my photos were posted on a variety of websites.

Fleet Week also happened this month and featured the Blue Angels paying a visit to San Francisco. Nothing short of awesome.

And no trip (or year for that matter) is complete without a stop at your local In N’ Out burger.

So there you have it. My life in 2007, in photos. What a great year! Here’s to hoping that 2008 is even more amazing.
