Evening in the Park

Here’s that tower thing that I can’t ever remember the name of… I asked a bunch of French people while I was there and they would just give me a blank stare, like they didn’t understand Esperanto.

Petit Palais near the Tuileries

Here is a non-HDR shot of the Petit Palais, which is not so petite, but it is moreso than the Grand Palais from across the street.

On the way to the Tuileries

Here is a map from Google maps about where I was… testing this thing out:

Sinking Ruins

Our boat captain was lamenting that this was a very unique Roman ruin and there was very little conservation going on… just a lot of shirtless (and upon zooming, rather chubby) Italian men doing cannonballs off the top level.

Angels Watching Over Paris

This photo came out surprisingly nicely. This was shot over the Seine as I was walking over towards the Eiffel Tower at sunset.

The Cannon was Aimed Vaguely Towards Germany

Here is the pinnacle of French military technology. This has been converted to a water cannon to hose down people that are protesting the inhumane 35-hour work week.

Willows in Wine Country

Here is an older picture I just got around to uploading from Napa, out where my mom lives. The larger version of this one is nice… these panoramic shots always look boring when viewed small.

More Churches of Italy

The top picture here is the Santa Maria Maggiore, the basilica that was across the street from my hotel in Rome. The second shot is from the interior of one of the side-chapels. The last is a little collage I made of my Churches of Italy set on Flickr.

T-Ball Evening

Here is one of Ethan’s T-Ball games, which mostly involves about 20 kids per side running around like locusts after a ball, usually ending with one kid under the pile crying. This photo makes it appear much more idyllic than it actually is.

Forgotten and Abandoned

This is a shot of the interior of the Castel D’Ovo in Naples.

A row of columns in Pompeii

This was an empty area behind the small amphitheatre that used to house the gladiators and serve as a training ground.
