Note: Flickr recently went through a massive server transition, and portions of the service are still being worked on. Among the problems is that mosaic thumbnails on Collections are not visible, which means my primary page here for showing groupings by year are missing those thumbnails. The links do work—only the thumbnails are missing, so you can still navigate into a year to view those photos.
Just a few completely random images that don't really belong in any other Flickr set.
Most of these are dated as some time in 2004, but that's just the date I organized them into an album. Most are older. No way to properly date them.
My own street corner
Yes, there actually is a street corner not far from where I work that sports both my names!
Same corner, older photo
This is the original version of the street corner. The sign has been completely replaced and uses lower case letters now.
My high school class flag
Every year, I keep debating whether to spend the money to renew my custom license plate (this scan was my original plate. I've received a replacement plate several times over, now). It was inspired by the same-named magazine that was merged into Macworld magazine. Starting to feel I'll never get rid of it.
Rosa and Vergy cartoonified
Playing around with some cartoonization with one of my Puerto Rico vacation pictures. The instructions for the comic art effect came from MacMerc.com.
Me in South Park form
Using a web/java-based engine (sorry, lost the URL long ago), I created a South Park character that vaguely resembled me. Then I separated elements of it into Photoshop layers and applied various textures, fills, lighting, and shadows.
Mouse using a man
This art was always special to me, as it was a scan of a one-of-a-kind original, sort of. I'd often seen this humorous depiction in very poor quality forms. A prior girlfriend who is a rather skilled artist recreated it for me, and yes, I do still have the original sketch sheet.
Though not personally, I know some people that get those little warm fuzzy sensations over sequential or patterned numbers/letters. Note my odometer. (And ignore the fact that, yes, I was driving 50 MPH when I reached for my camera in the passenger seat, turned it on, and snapped the photo). For what it's worth, this was in my 2001 Stratus.
When my Pontiac Vibe hit 1,067 miles, I had the presence of mind to snap a shot and send it to my then-favorite radio station, XL 106.7. Dunno why—although they've posted weirder stuff on their site. Yes, I did manage to pull over before taking the picture this time, and yes, it was late December (I was driving to my parents' house for the holidays) and it really was 66 degrees, which is cold for Florida!!!
Fun with markers
A marker somehow managed to end up in my nephew's crib one day. When his mother realized he was awfully quiet (he usually jumped and wiggled himself to sleep for a long time before his nap), she got suspicious, came into his room, and found this!
Riley and the pantry
My nephew used to love emptying the pantry. The oddest thing is, unlike what you'd expect for a 2-year-old, Riley actually arranged the stuff like this on his own instead of just throwing it to the floor—which is, of course, the only reason his parents let him do it.
Old Quicken Easter Egg
I think this is the only software easter egg I've found totally on my own without reading about it on some web site index.
Navy ID card
My dad was cleaning out old collections and found his dad's Navy identification card. I believe this is circa 1920s—possibly early 30s. The amazing thing is how much I look like my grandfather did back then. He would've been around age 20, give or take 2-3 years, and consequently 20 years younger than I am now. I've put the card in a laminated protector and will cherish it always.
