I am checked in already for my flights to San Francisco and Hong Kong. I leaving tomorrow morning. Yes – Sept 11, not the best day to fly I would imagine! – but I have to be at Daya Bay on Monday morning.
A neighborhood right by the San Francisco International airport is in the news this morning. A natural gas explosion started a fire that destroyed about 50 homes. At least one person was killed and more than 20 others injured.
The two pictures below the one of the fire were taken with my new camera in Seattle’s SoDo (South of Downtown) neighborhood this morning. The Komodo dragon is at Starbucks headquarters, and the mural from a grocery store on 4th Ave close by. Click on them to blow them up .. the truth comes out then, which is that the compact camera has a much smaller sensor than an single-lens reflex (SLR) camera, and therefore it cannot possibly match the detail of an SLR’s pictures.
