For pie

From our tree. These are mostly gone now, but the pie was delicious.

Garlic Festival

The forecast for the Garlic Festival was 92 degrees. I don't know how hot it actually got, but it sure felt like it was in the 90s.

We ate garlic-laced food and watched a cooking demonstration. There's not much more than a couple hours worth of activity. Worth going to once, or if the weather were more mild.

Books for grownups

I like the lighting and the composition... This one's not going into Panoramio, though, because I'm on a mission to show only the best side of Sunnyvale at that site.

Heavenly White Nectarines

I think this is the third year we've had this tree. First year we got
a handful of nectarines. Last year we got less (but it did suffer from
leaf curl in the early spring). This year looks pretty bountiful.

slow shutter

The gopro camera actually works okay in low light if you're not moving...

Mathilda at Washington

Taken with my cell phone over the weekend. I went back later with a different camera, which I will post tomorrow.

Barbarians at the gate

Scene at Valley Fair last night. The line appears short because if it were continuous, it would block the escalators around the corner. There are about 250 people around the corner out of view.

I suppose I should have posted this a few days ago, but I, uh... had
to get the film developed? (No, I can't really use that excuse.)

Hundreds, if not thousands of bicyclists ride by this place on any given weekend. Few if any enter.
