A friend of mine is running for County Council in Prince George’s, Maryland. I’m serving as his Online Communications Director for the campaign. It’s nothing outrageously good, but he now has his very own campaign web site:

Went to the zoo today, with a borrowed telephoto lens. Cheap little thing, but it still managed to take some great pictures that just wouldn’t have happened with my regular 28-70mm lens. Also, turns out that you don’t need tickets to see “Butterstick” the panda… Just go to the Panda Cafe and peer over the wall in the outdoor dining area.

Hike: Maryland Heights

Saturday, 21 January 2006



Hiked the Old Stone Fort Trail in Harpers Ferry National Park. Outstanding hike. While the views weren’t particularly great, the breastworks, trenches and other relics of the Civil War add a terrific historic element to the trek. Overcast day, which was great for the cloud shots, but lousy for pretty much everything else.

[Downtown College Park, College Park, Maryland]
a friend of mine from my days on the hill is running for prince george’s county council — looking to represent the greater college park area. i volunteered to do his web site, needed to images for the site, and so we spent the afternoon taking some pictures.

my grandfather was both born in college park, and was a professor at the university of maryland, so it was fun spending some time wandering around.

Wanted to go to the Building Museum for quite some time, and had the opportunity when my parents were in town. Great lines, and stunning architecture. Take the tour, which gets you on to the 4th floor which is otherwise closed to the public.
