Coming Home

I think this tanker was coming home, empty to get more oil. Or maybe it is not a tanker at all but freight ship coming back to get loaded with containers. Not really sure, I’m not an expert on it. It is interesting how it was accompanied by that tiny boat. They went through in a matter of couple minutes, maybe even faster as I was only able to take a few shots at it.

This was our first morning in San Francisco, we went to see sunrise and the first thing I saw is this boat coming back from the sea. Pretty cool.

Ads No Go

So I tried to enable WordAds last night and guess what, they completely messed up the site layout. Sounds like wordpress only wants to display it on vanilla out of the box sites without any customizations and without actually confirming with site owners where it would be ok to show them. I had to turn it off immediately. Unless they provide more flexibility on display options this blog will remain advertisement free.

Eye to Eye

I was walking along a path looking at all kind of interesting things around me, taking photos. This one cut my eye, hehe, get it? so I had to take a photo of it. The weird thing about eyes, with nothing else around it, if I stare at it and concentrate on different details, look at different angles, it kind of freaks me out. I get some type of visual illusions going on. Try and stare at it, you might see what I mean. Best works if you open it big. Just click on it.

So the mystery part, this one is probably tough one. First, where was this shown, and second, do you know who is the artist? By the way, it is the artists eye staring at you.

Here is the answer to the mystery. Thanks for stopping by guys. Have a great weekend.


Skyscrapers aka Небоскребы


I’ve been keeping advertisements off this blog by paying for “No Ads” upgrade with Recently I learned that I can turn on ads and get a little share from the ads revenue they get. I’m going to turn on this feature in a few days and see how it goes for some time, what kind of ads they are going to put and if it will at least pay for all the extra upgrades on the blog.

Небоскребы, Небоскребы (Skyscrapers)

I know that there are a few visitors to this blog who lived in Soviet Union in the 80th and 90th and will probably relate to this post. Every time I visit NYC or see movies with some action in Manhattan I think of a little verse from a song that goes like this in Russian: “ Небоскребы, Небоскребы, а Я маленький такой” which means “Skyscrapers, Skyscrapers, but I’m so little”. It was performed by the Russian immigrant to NYC and was very well known in Soviet Union. I don’t remember the rest of the song and actually as of today didn’t even remember the name of the guy who performed it. Today I had to see if it is available on youtube and hear it again. Sure thing, there are a few versions of it available, all pretty cheesy, here is one if you like to hear/see it.

Good Morning 2012

I took this photo on January 1st in Charleston, South Carolina. First sunrise of 2012. We are almost half way through the year. I think it is going pretty well. I hope it is true for you as well.
