Photo time! Here is some of the new stuff, before and after. I'd say more, but it's top secret...

Part 2 of the "polarization" series: my homeboy's spectacles
A piece of plastic backlit between crossed polarizers. The color variation is due to minor thickness differences.

Mo photo friday: El Capitan from the valley floor. No photo has ever done these places justice.
Yosemite...So awesome it looks fake.
...and here is the view from the first summit of "The Chief". The pain is a small price to pay.
More Photog Friday: ~30 min from downtown Vancouver stands Stawamus Chief..just a pleasant stroll up the hill.
Photography Friday: Sunrise over downtown Vancouver. Stayed up 3 hrs for this..photo was kind of a let down.
