August 2004

General Subjects - Long Beach Aquarium - Tommy Thompson Tour 

August is only half over but lots has happened. Here are just some of the exciting things to enjoy. August is the first month I've been shooting with my new 20mm f2.8 Nikkor. It has a 94 degree angle of view and seems to be very sharp. I hope to post some neat photos in the future.

Meatball is Chuck and Judy's cat. He likes hanging around our house because he likes being stepped on by Ashley and Alex. Weird cat.

The Long Beach Aquarium

Since my sales rep Craig Spencer wussed out on me this year, I found myself without a job on Tuesday, when the SAAC Fishing Trip went out on the boat. Of all the amazingly insensitive things that Craig has done to me this year, missing the fishing trip was the worst. To console myself, I took Diana to the Aquarium and took these photos. There are some really amazing things here.

This should be what a photo from the Hubble Space Telescope might look like.

Tommy is a San Diego treasure. He has been the most visible face of the Old Globe Theater for as long as Diana and I have been attending. Periodically, he gives a comprehensive tour of the theater and we got to join the group on Monday, August 9th. These are my favorite photos from the evening.
