Passenger Zone

No parking between signs .. hotel guests with big bags approaching. Handle with care!

Shot outside the hotel the out-of-towners in Automattic stayed in while in San Francisco!

Don’t forget the exhibit in Mallow I mentioned in my gallery update starts tonight. I gave it a plug on too so hopefully we’ll see a healthy number of visitors.

Jesus Christ still loves you

A year ago I photographed this man holding the sign saying Jesus Christ Loves You in San Francisco. Amazingly he’s still in the same spot. That’s dedication for you!

Shadows on Powell St

The shadow cast by a young man waiting to cross the street forms the main subject of this unusual image. Sort of messes with your head doesn’t it?

Expired Meter

An expired meter I spotted while we waited for a table to become free in a restaurant in San Francisco a few blocks from Union Square.

Photo has been "cross processed" using the Curves tool. I created an S curve on the red and green channels, and then applied a lomo plugin for good effect!

Faces of the TechCrunch Party 2007

TechCrunch held their second annual party on Friday night and I was there with a few of the guys from Automattic. It was my first time being at a gathering like this, but we had a good time and I got a couple of shots off.

In the collage (or montage?) above you should be able to pick out Scott Beale, Kristopher Tate, Thomas Hawk and of course the Automattic guys, Matt Mullenweg, Michael Adams, Barry Abrahamson, and Raanan Bar-Cohen.

I had a great chat with Beau Lebens of Feedville who’s doing some interesting stuff with WPMU. Looking forward to seeing that. Unfortunately I don’t recall who anyone else is, but if you leave a comment here I’ll fill in the blanks!

As usual, Scott Beale had the first shots up. He must have blogged them as soon as he got home!

Update, lots more coverage on by Michael Arrington including videos and photos.

Cut the chocolate birthday cake

Yum! Yum! Alex cuts the delicious chocolate birthday cake in Herbivore, San Francisco! That crazy Matt Mullenweg fella can’t resist helping him with the cake. Come to think of it, did anyone not eat the cake? It was so nice!
