One of My Favorite Images

by on Aug.12, 2009, under Personal, Photography

During winter while most trees have shed there leaves, the Cherry trees are in bloom in Northern California. Just up the street from where I live are the VTA tracks, and they are lined with Cherry trees. I captured this image of one of many Cherry trees, and I was lucky to have the VTA train in route. This image is sort of a metaphor for me that while my future is hazy, it will come into focus.

I hope this image has some meaning to you as well if only to be someones desktop background!

Enjoy!

The future is unclear, but will come into focus.

ISS and Space Shuttle Imaged from the Ground

by on Aug.12, 2009, under Astronomy

I have recently found some outstanding images of the ISS and the Space Shuttle from a gentleman by the name of Ralf Vendenbergh. Using only a 10 inch (25 cm) newton style telescope and a digital camera, he was able to capture these stunning images. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do:
