Even More Transformers of Gabrovo

...and even more. One that I photographed back in 2021 and forgot!


Gabrovo Falls

Experiments in freezing and not freezing water motion.


The Dogs of Gabrovo

They're a lot more shy that the cats, but also a lot more chill. While the cats were always up to something, the dogs mostly just take it easy in the shade.


Beer Arrow

When the Beer Gods close a tap they open a bottle. I was pretty bummed that Grasshopper had closed, but a Google search revealed that there was another pub just a short walk away. We went there and what do you know - Gabrovo may not be big, but it's big enough to have a craft beer shop. And it's a jewel.


Paw Print

I don't know if it's a dog or a cat, but putting that print in the asphalt it sure was a beast.


Gabrovo Carnival 2024

Musicians, aliens, cartoon characters, the Town Docker...


The Fire Burning in the Bottle Cap Monster

The monster lives still.


Gabrovonian Morning

The heavy clouds lifted and the sun shone.


Balance Bike

Kid wants a balance bike. No wait. Dad wants kid to want a balance bike. So I'm - I mean - she's getting one.


Featured on Berm Peak!

Since I wrote about Berm Peak, its creator Seth Alvo has moved the subscription from Patreon to Substack and I followed over there. YouTube is great in many ways, but you get what the algorithm serves you - creators that displease the algorithm tend to see their income disappear and with that they tend to decide to spend their efforts elsewhere. Helping one of my favorite YouTube creators break free for $7/month was a no-brainer.

The Substack chat started with an invitation to post a picture of your bike, so I uploaded a photo of my now 19 year old bike. A little bit later Seth released a video about How the Bike Industry Takes Bike Photos, noting that just about all photos that they had received were way off-spec - wonderfully off-spec. And wouldn't you know, I was featured not just once (which was enough to celebrate), but twice!



Många har satt champagnen på kylning, men plocka inte fram den ännu. Det Sverige som går med i NATO är annorlunda än det Sverige som stod utanför NATO under det kalla kriget, men det NATO vi går med i är också annorlunda.


Hue-Preserving Invert CSS Filter for Dark Mode

Using a gamma transformation followed by linear transforms in YUV color space to convert images for dark mode.


Grasshopper Craft Beer Shop

Just like the previous restaurant review, this was a great place that now doesn't exist.


Sweet Potato Patties


A Small Ice Cave

Spring is almost here, and with that, some freeze-thaw cycles that result in nice but small ice formations.


Giant Paper Flowers

Paper flowers made for the NK department store by Danish artist Marianne Eriksen Scott-Hansen.
