Many thanks to the Dubnos, who have turned a small get-together with their friends into a smashing event. I flew in on the redeye, so I was pretty tired, but it was great to see old friends as well as all of the great exhibitors and demonstrators. Really well done.
Here’s the photo set.
On the way back, I got the shot below from the deck of the boat heading up the Hudson. What a beautiful night.
And I saw Rick Smolan, who is a WONDERFUL photographer (and a great guy) and he’s going to come meet the small crowd already gathering for tomorrow morning’s photowalk across the Brooklyn bridge. Can’t wait!
See you all there over at 10am EST – Don’t forget, we’re meeting at the walkway entrance is next to the Federal Court Building in Brooklyn. There are stairs on Cadman Plaza East and Prospect Street or a ramp entrance on Johnson and Adams Streets. You can get there by subway: take the A train to High Street. Give me a call at 415 846-0232 if you’re lost or are wandering around.

Brooklyn Bridge, by Lab2112
Come join me and a bunch of folks who are getting together this Saturday for a photowalk across the Brookyn Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan, and the continued with lunch, and a stroll around the lower east side. Saturday looks to be a beautiful day (current forecast says Sunny, Highs of 75 degrees) so I’m sure we’ll have a great time and get lots of great photos.

Where: We’re meeting at the walkway entrance is next to the Federal Court Building in Brooklyn. There are stairs on Cadman Plaza East and Prospect Street or a ramp entrance on Johnson and Adams Streets. You can get there by subway: take the A train to High Street. Give me a call at 415 846-0232 if you’re lost or are wandering around.
When: 10AM on Satuday September 29th. We’ll grab some lunch afterwards when we get to the Manhattan side, so all in all the walk will probably end around 2PM.
What to bring: Bring yourself, and whatever you like to record the moment – camera, video camera, or your friendly instamatic! All experience levels are a-ok, from beginner to expert pro.
Sometimes you have to work for it, and sometimes photographs just present themselves to you. I captured this yesterday at the local big box store while waiting for it to open. They had all of their shopping carts lined up in long rows fading into the shadow under the awning in the distance. It was also raining, which is unusual for San Francisco this time of year. The rain and the soft light made everything look liquid and soft. Enjoy…

I’ll be flying in to NYC this coming weekend for Danny Dubno’s wonderful Gadgetoff conference. If you’re coming, drop me a line, I’d love to hook up. I’ve also got an extra day in NYC on Saturday – is anyone up for a morning photowalk in Manhattan on Saturday? Drop me a line at david AT sifry DOT com, or leave a comment here, and if some folks are up for it, we’ll get together and have a fun Satuday morning!

Had a nice lunch with an old friend and colleague, Liz Westover. lt’s nice to get away and explore some restaurants outside of SOMA/South Park, we went to the Presidio and had lunch in the place that just opened in the Letterman building. Not bad (the display was very nice for my salmon salad) but a bit overpriced and difficult to eat – I only had about 4 inches of plate room to pick at my food.:-)
The folks at Nokia have asked me to come and speak at their upcoming NokiaWorld conference, and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s in Amsterdam on December 4th and 5th. In order to get my head around the new mobile apps that are out there, I’ve got a new Nokia N95 (they sent me one, so all disclaimers apply) and I broke out an old bluetooth keyboard, and I’ve decided to take this little baby out for a trial run, see what having all this mobile computing power means, what new applications are available, etc. I’ll be posting more as I get a better hang of things.
With my new Nokia N95. It is definitely hard to type using only a keypad…
I’ve been playing around with building FaceBook apps for a few kicks, and I’ve got a question for all you FB app developers out there. I’ve read the wiki, done the step-by-step, gone through the anatomy of an app, installed the Footprints app and played around with it, but now I’m looking for a little bit more – are there any good online tutorials that take someone beyond the simple act of writing your first app? Any recommendations on sites or groups to join?
Leave a comment, or drop me an email at david AT sifry DOT com.
Thanks in advance!
