The evolution of back pain

The evolution of back pain

A small poster advertises a survey on back pain. It’s a 3 year programme and since this was taken in 2007 it’s nearing completion now! Taken somewhere in San Francisco. Aperture ƒ/4 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 10mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/160s

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Growing Wild in the Biosphere

Inside Biosphere 2, Arizona is a complete ecosystem meant to keep a group of people alive for months on end. That project ended years ago but the building remains and it’s worth a visit if you’re in the area! Just in case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, 3 hotel rooms going for free on the […]

Emma

Emma, a small alley somewhere in San Francisco. Shot three years ago while on a photowalk around the city. Only 9 places left for the photowalk tomorrow. I emailed everyone today. Did you get your email?

The burning embers of a bonfire glow brightly in the chill Arizona night. Taken in January 2008 when Automattic visited Arizona. Here’s another shot of that fire!

The Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Theatre on State Street in the city of the same name. The sign in front is hard to miss but I’ve never been in there. Maybe next time I visit Chicago. More info on the theatre’s history page. Love that Netscape favicon! This was shot in 2005 but I know I have shot […]

Moving from Chicago to Washington

Barack Obama’s family probably had some help from America’s Secret Service when they moved from Chicago to Washington but for the rest of us, that journey would be a lot more mundane and would involve the services of a company like Hollander. Photographed somewhere in Chicago in May 2005. PS. Thank you if you nominated […]

Look up at Marina City

Look up at Marina City

Marina City, the round shaped buildings in Chicago that sit on the river make an imposing sight when viewed up close. Good thing there’s valet parking, you certainly wouldn’t want to be scared of heights driving around inside them! Aperture ƒ/6.3 Camera Canon EOS 20D Focal length 18mm ISO 100 Shutter speed 1/125s

Shoe Shopper Heaven

I’m reliably informed that many women enjoy the occasional trip to shoe shops and other establishments were garments and other finery may be purchased. Thankfully my wife isn’t one of them and hates shopping almost as much as I do. Nevertheless we found ourselves inside this shoe shop in Chicago so I decided to make […]

Chicago Spaces

Despite being a major city, or perhaps because of it, Chicago has plenty of open spaces and broad streets. I love this shot for it’s wide open space bordered by tall buildings. If the photo looks slightly odd, that’s because I used the perspective tool, but never dragged it the other way.. Aperture ƒ/16 Camera […]

N0bama

I’d vote for the husky. BarCamp Cork II was brilliant. I got my talk on WordPress and AJAX over and done with early on in the day, mingled, fixed @icedcoffee’s Tweet Tweet plugin and updated the Tweet Tweet plugin to support Twitter notification via O2 Ireland’s free webtexts. Thanks Enda for the u/p while I […]

Pumpkins For Sale

Pumpkins for sale in the local store in Breckenridge, Colorado. I post this today because Dunnes Stores are selling pumpkins and they’re only half the size of the large pumpkins pictured here! Does anyone actually eat pumpkins? They’re a new sight in Irish shops, and are only ever for sale in the large chains around […]
