Free speech court decision

I am interested in many things. As you may have guessed by now, I am a bit of a photograph junkie! I prefer film to electronic imaging, though I am interested in the possibilities inherent in Hi-8 video stills (it's possible to use the Hi-8 (can't remember the model number) in "snapshot" mode, which gives a pretty decent-quality image. certainly better than the quality of an Apple QuickTake 100, but that may just be my prejudice).

Okay, that's seriously old. These days I find myself taking most of my photographs in the digital medium, using an Olympus D-360L. This makes it a lot easier to share photos with family members (At last look, only one of my near relatives is without e-mail.). Ofoto suffices for making good-quality prints of most pictures. is useful for translating my film into the digital realm. (I don't work for either of these places, but I am a very satisfied customer.)

Speaking of interests, here's a picture of my wife, Laura, who, you'll be happy to know, is entering her fourth year of teaching fifth grade at a small private school in San Jose. This picture was taken shortly after we met, and was the first one she allowed me to put online. I never have gotten around to linking in our wedding pictures, though the wedding gallery page still exists as a monument to my laziness. :)
