This is from a balloon ride in Napa Valley. This is (obviously) how the balloon looked from the inside. I like how the colors play and the symmetric in the pattern.

This is one of few pictures from back then that I like enough to maybe try to print at a decent size and hang on the wall at home.

I took this pic early in the morning (as in when the balloon would leave, so the early morning light probably made this picture for me. All I had to do was to be there…

So the adventure begins

Time to get this blog started. It's a photoblog, so don't expect the text to do much more than just explain the pictures.

I picked this picture to kick off the blog with as it was the first picture with a digital camera that I was really happy with. Not sure I'd be as pleased with it today, but it convinced me that it was time to abandon film.

The photo was taken at Sundborn, Sweden on 6/26/2001 during my honeymoon (week). This photo is taken just outside the place where Carl Larsson (Sweden's most famous painter) lived. This place is so beautiful that it feels that it's posing for a photograph all the time.
