just an illusion

Lets see, I suppose that if I was a social butterfly I would first be seeing two faces, but what I see first is a curvy lamp base -- maybe it's not time for me to come out of my cave...   Any amateur psychologists in the crowd?

But hey -- how do you like that header?   Step away from your monitor several feet and Einstein will change into Marilyn.   No foolin'...   These were shot at San Francisco's Exploratorium a couple years ago.

But moving on...   How about a bit of fun?

Shadows are fun.   I should try to find and shoot them more often.

I think one of the most fun funnest things to do at the Golden Gate Bridge is to cross under using the passageway on the north side of the bridge.   From there you can inspect some of the newly completed earthquake retrofit work -- they've got it engineered so the ground supports for the bridge approach can actually roll around about eight inches in any direction.

The first time I walked under the bridge I was amazed at just how much it bounces around when a heavy truck passes on the roadway.   It's the true meaning of shake, rattle, and roll...

I had to come back here and change the photo that I was going to show, because I remembered this shot from a couple months ago.   As I remember, spitting off bridges is some of the best fun a kid can have.

For a hermit, you sure do get out a lot! Love the riveting shadows!

I enjoyed hearing the water with your beautiful Lake Lagunitas images.

Love these images. Great capture of the "spit". Glad your camera is returning. Now I'm off to see your videos.

I saw a curvy lamp base. And I think spitting is a guy thing!
