Librería San Ginés, Madrid on Flickr.
This is an outdoor bookstore attached to the side of Iglesia de San Ginés. When I first saw it, I thought it was a lovely scene. At the end of the walkway is a red sign for the Chocolatería San Ginés. It’s a famous place where you can get some churros con chocolate.
RBS Building, Amsterdam on Flickr.
This building is in the Zuidas area of Amsterdam. It has details which make the building stand out, without being overly outlandish. The colored glass glows, backlit by the interior lights, at night.
Lex van Deldenbrug, Amsterdam on Flickr.
This is a newly completed pedestrian canal bridge in Amsterdam Zuid. I like the simple design and color scheme. I think it’s quite pleasant. The red brick color path is for bicycles. Don’t get in the way of those bicycles.
Calle de Toledo, Madrid on Flickr.
I took this photo from under Arco de Toledo, looking out toward Calle de Toledo. I waited until just before sunset so that the golden sunlight would make the church towers glow. I stood in the spot for about an hour, waiting for the right moment. I took several shots in both horizontal and vertical orientation. This is one of the better ones.
Big Black Boot
I’ve been wearing this thing for a few weeks now. I only need to wear it for a few more days, then I’m done with it. I figured the least I could do is draw it, to give it some respect.
House Design Exploration #1
I used my Lego Architecture Studio kit to build a house design sketch in 3D. Before I started, I had a rough idea of what I wanted to build. But, I thought I’d use the bricks to inspire some creativity and help develop the design. The scale and proportions aren’t exact. But, this exploration helped to get a better sense of the form and outer features.
I was pleased with the outcome. My next step will be to elaborate on these ideas in the form of a detailed drawing.
I found inspiration in my torn achilles. I decided to draw it. This is about the position it was in when it tore.
Achilles’ Cast, California
I had surgery to repair a completely torn achilles tendon. The is my fresh new orange hard cast. The doctor did such a neat clean job. It’s almost like a sculpture. I thought it was worth capturing.
Sunset with Clouds, San Francisco on Flickr.
I took this photo at one of my favorite spots. From here, you can see from downtown San Francisco to Oakland. I waited until about 45 minutes before sunset. I wanted the warm glow of the sun to shine on the buildings. I also wanted to take the photo before the low clouds moved in.
