Picking my next camera

I’ve lost touch with photography in last year. I’m OK with that. I had other priorities in life, both professionally and personally, but now it’s time to look through the view finder again. I miss travel photography, urban photography and seeing the unexpected. Now I just need a camera. I’ve been spoiled in the past,...

The Knight Rider Riding Lawn Mower

With summer fast approaching and the dandelions appearing everywhere, it’s time to plan your yard work for the summer. One option is to pay the neighborhood kid. The other is to tune up the John Deere. Or there is the only option in my opinion: Get the Knight Rider Riding Lawn Mower. Knight Rider graced...

Japanese Web Design

Japan. Land of incredible vending machines. Underdog race car drivers. And a somewhat confusing approach to the web. At a glance, Japanese web design can appear incredibly detailed, and minute. Chaotic, yet adorable. Incredibly advanced and decidedly stagnant. Focused on Flash, or HTML5. It’s baffling. Boy do I sound ethnocentric. Questionable web design occurs everywhere,...

Winning races was lovely

Winning races was lovely. That’s a quote from my dad, reflecting on his time spent in Formula One during the 1970’s. Before he passed away in October of 2011, he and I are started a project together. I had already written a fair amount about him and motorsports, so I asked him if I could...

Reaching a new level

It’s been well over a year since I last wrote about work. That’s back when I worked at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. My how things have changed. 13 months later. Lucky 13. And I’ve just emerged from the most challenging and most rewarding project ever. Last Saturday, March 9 at 2:17pm, the new ExactTarget website...

The ugliest soccer and football jerseys

It turns out that the beautiful game isn’t always that good looking. Football or soccer creates some visually stunning moments, whether it’s Argentina’s 25 pass goal against Serbia, my 35-yard strike, the time Pele thought he had scored against Gordon Banks, or quite simply, David Beckham. But that’s not always the case. There’s still racism...

My 5 best photographs of 2012

Towards the end of 2011, I highlighted my top-5 viewed images on Flickr. For a 2012 recap, I’m doing something slightly different and just selecting my favorite 5 from the year. I wasn’t quite as a prolific – for one, I changed jobs, and two, I was much, much busier with less time to focus...

The Doctor Who Dalek Sprinkler

Two things gaining momentum these days. The heat is rising. And, everyone loves Doctor Who.

Fast forward 30++ years and I...

Video games, R.B.I. Baseball and Dale Murphy

From time to time to time, I guest blog for The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. In the past, I’ve written about being a father and frogs (of all things). I’m not a prolific writer for them, but my best friend works there, and I know with other staff, so I like to keep an eye...

Miluju tě Machinarium

I love Machinarium. Not many iPhone or iPad games have impressed me to the point of reflection. Sure, I’ve launched Angry Birds on some flights. I’ve played FIFA, turned some laps in The Need for Speed, and shot at Germans in Brother in Arms. I adore everything LEGO, so Harry Potter was a blast. And...

Raygun Gothic Rocketship

I was recently on the west coast of the US for work, sitting in my hotel room one evening, cranking out emails, reviewing web pages, and writing out project plans. As exciting as that sounds, I decided to pop out for a stroll and some fresh ocean air, camera by my side. Imagine my excitement...

Coogee, Bronte and Bondi Beaches

Does a 5 mile-ish walk along the ocean during Autumn sound intriguing? What if it was in Australia and went through towns called Coogee, Bronte and Bondi? Even better, right? We set out mid-afternoon so we could witness the sun setting during our hike. The beaches were immaculate, the air crisp and the sights breathtaking....

May I present to you – Dan Wonderly

In 1997, I walked into a painting class in Cavanaugh Hall on IUPUI’s campus. I took my seat and looked to my right. I met Dan Wonderly. First of all, his last name is Wonderly. Not Superbly, or Greatly or Ironically. Wonderly – possibly the greatest surname in the history of our species. Dan and...

Prepping for the race season

Although I no longer work in racing, I still think of it often. And I have plans to remain involved in some way – more on that another time. It doesn’t mean I’m going to become a racing blogger (I prefer to keep my racing opinions to myself)- and besides, there’s already a good group...
