A little late, but since everyone is in the Michael Jackson mood, here's a shot of some friends practicing thriller.

Another shot in Cairo. I need to travel more. Need new cities for pictures. Anybody going on vacation and need a date?

Midday Cairo Alley

Can't help it. I'm lazy. Sorry for being bad about posting.

Another example of a fake tilt-shift photograph. This was taken from a bridge on Ring Road in Cairo. It's a highway that almost circles the entire city. I say almost because the ring isn't closed. It has like a three mile gap or something, but that's not really all that important. What is kind of funny though is that while I was looking through some pictures that one of my friends studying in Cairo this spring took, and I noticed a picture of the same alley from the exact same spot. I emailed her my picture and her picture for comparison. She didn't realized that I hadn't just simply edited hers until I brought it up with her. Funny thing is that the picture is in a book I gave her before she left.

As a side note, I encourage you to click on this picture and then select the large view to get a closer look. It gives the effect a better feeling.

While I was home last week, my mom's birth mother came in to town to visit for my brother's high school graduation. This is her husband Ken enjoying a beer in the beautiful Iowa early summer weather. As a side note, they live about a half-hour from the Sierra Nevada brewery in California, so Ken is no stranger to this beer.
