wasting bandwidth since 1999

Picture Post #1

As mentioned in an earlier post, I’m trying to carve out more time to devote to photography. Here is my first post featuring a few shots from the previous week or so.

I had planned to post these sooner but got lost in trying to learn a software alternative to Aperture, the photo management program Apple has decided to abandon in favor of their new Photos application. However, Photos has a long way to go before it’s an appropriate replacement and another possibility called Emulsion also needs a lot of work. More to come on this topic.

Getting Snacks

The National Zoo’s male panda Tian Tian (I think; Karen could certainly tell me) batting around his snack dispenser looking for more food.

Color TV

A real modern-age antique. We had one of these when I was a kid but I’m pretty sure my dad paid more than $150 for it.

More pictures below the jump.

Remote Control

From the 1960’s this was one of the first wireless remote controls for TVs. Not much functionality but a big step for couch potatoes.

Keeping Watch

River Otters at the National Zoo

Panda Pictures

When one or more of the National Zoo’s pandas are in their yard, the photographers also come out.

Breakfast at the Zoo

The crowd, if you can call it that, at the annual Breakfast at the Zoo. Nice morning for both a picnic and viewing the animals.

Evil Eye

A vulture in the bird house at the National Zoo looking at me like I’m road kill.

Rainy Day Bricks

My artsy shot of the week. :-)
