new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

white house star party

from the video description:

'president obama kicked off astronomy night on the south lawn of the white house. some 150 middle school students from the washington area got to learn more about their universe using more than 20 telescopes provided by NASA and other organizations. they observed jupiter, the moon and selected stars. other activities included science presentations with samples of meteorites and moon rocks. NASA's museum alliance, a consortium of museums, science centers and planetariums conducted activities worldwide to coincide with the white house event. astronomy night helped note the international year of astronomy, a global celebration of contributions to society and culture in the 400 years since galileo first used a telescope.'
