Return to Docklands

Seeing Docklands in that state would be like visiting a desecrated grave.

I didn't go to Docklands many times - maybe three or four in total - but it was certainly an experience. Loud techno being blasted from stacks of speakers immersed the several hundred people in the shipyard's old welding hall in laser-lit fog and thundering rhythms.


Morning in Lawrence

A morning walk.


Liberty Memorial

The national WW1 memorial.


C.W. Parker Carousel Museum

Round and round and round...


Storm Warning

Just managed to metaphorically dip my toe in the tallgrass prairie before a thunderstorm rolled in and it was time to hurry back on the turnpike.


Bigsh0t 720 Degree Video

Because 360 degrees aren't enough when converting from VR video to normal video and you want a circular fisheye effect.


Happy Bike Ride to Husby

A lot less biking this summer than I had hoped, so I enjoy what I managed the more!


Surrounded by Idiots

A friend asked me if I could help out with some product photos. It was Thomas Erikson, author of the popular book Surrounded by Idiots who needed some photos for his website.

Plovdiv Sunset

Panorama Equivalence

When using a narrower-angle lens and panoramic stitching to get a higher-resolution photo with the field of view of a wider-angle lens, there are some things that change in the resulting photo.


Pano Aim

Super resolution doesn't work, but panorama stitching does. In order to help me aim the camera and get the most pixels out of the resulting component photos, I created an app that uses the orientation sensor in my phone to assist me.


Paint it Whiter

I finally completed the paint job I started in 2010. Back then, I skipped repainting the bedroom, rationalizing the decision as (a) too much work to disassemble the wardrobe and (b) I was going to be unconscious in the bedroom anyway so who cares what it looks like?

But just like other multi-year-long projects, suddenly they end up completed.

To my great surprise.

To really "close the circle", I used the same paint roller as back in 2010, one of the brushes, tape, floor cover and furniture cover from back then as well. I guess it paid off to have them in a corner of my basement storage, thinking "well you never know, they might be useful some day" whenever I saw them.


Årsta Bridges at Sunset

End of the Highway

Due to a mistake, part of the graffiti piece Highway by Still Heavens Only Force was partially painted over on August 13, 2019. I noticed that I had a one-day spike of search hits on the Google search console, and when I saw that it was for the search "still heavens only force", I first thought that someone had linked the article from somewhere else, or something.

The truth, as we know, was something quite different.


The Immoral Majority by Ben Howe

The Immoral Majority is part history of the transformation of the evangelical movement in the United States to a position supportive of Trump, part a condemnation of said realignment, and part a plea and exhortation to return to the movement's roots. What makes the book unusual for me is that it approaches the question from a Christian perspective and argues from a Biblical standpoint - in particular, it argues from a pre-Trump evangelical standpoint.


Super Resolution

Would you like to double the resolution of your camera, for free? I sure do.
