Don’t you DARE tell anyone

Touching Down, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

There is that moment when deer-eyed confusion gives way to narrow-eyed understanding.

And that moment is almost overwhelming in its ability to shatter everything you thought you knew while simultaneously answering all your questions.

But if you hang on tight to who you are, there is peace on the other side.

Another from the crackberry taken this spring and i am finally getting around to posting it.

This one is my backdrop on the phone. It makes me happy. It also makes me happy to be posting photos again.

Might even revive the old blog and fire up the printer.

I mean, I am feeling a little frisky…

Back to Work

Back to Work, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

Ohmigawsh! What a gorgeous day it was in NorCal today. Whoever ordered up this weather for my birthday, thank you! Much appreciated.

This is the vista I get at the end of my little lunch loop. I work down in that valley below, but today, it was more tempting than normal, to skip the valley and keep pedaling in the hills.

If you wanna geek out for a bit, you can check out my lunch loop here, complete with geotagged pics:
Lunch ride at Harvey Bear

This ride normally takes only 45 minutes, but I dawdled today. A lot.

It was a good day for dawdling.

Drive By Vineyard

I had my real camera with me in the car this morning. I really really should have stopped.

Too bad my job isn’t to drive/ride/walk around looking for lovely things.

Race leader

Race leader, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

I just haven’t been feeling the photography thing lately. Not having access to a way to post process my pics takes all the fun away. Especially for the way I like making the pics.

I headed out to a cross race with my crackberry with the intention of snapping a few pics and tweeting them real time to anyone who cares. And yes, I said tweeting.

The nice thing about crackberry pics is they are usually so bad I don’t really care about what I take. I just click away. But after a bit that photography buzz hit. You know that feeling when you really “see” the scene and a way to capture it. Its like being in the zone or something. And you just get all hyper and excited by what you see both in front of you and on the screen.

Anyway, it was fun. Almost as much as racing. Maybe.

Defects, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

My crackberry phone has this weird camera defect that makes starburst thingies when light hits it.


I love imperfections.

Early Riser

Early Riser, originally uploaded by Sabine Dukes.

I gotta remember to get up earlier in the mornings. But I am not a morning person.

If I got up earlier though, I might have a little time to stop and pull out my camera when I see something cool during my commute (which happens all the time because I live in an amazing place).

Instead, I roll down my window, aim my crackberry, swerve, piss off the people behind me and snap a pic. And I tell myself, tomorrow I will for sure get up early.

And yes Steve, I gave in and used the Flickr to blog. There goes the neighborhood.
