San Francisco Vacation

In January, my lovely wife Penelope and I took a vacation to the Bay Area to visit family, eat good food, and of course, shoot photos. My sister-in-law gave us a really awesome tour of the Internet Archive and on the way home we stopped and toured the amazingly beautiful SLAC, both of which turned in to WIRED News galleries. Last night I uploaded my photos from some of the non-tech places we visited. Here are a few for your enjoyment:

Downtown LA Walkabout #7

I love waking up early. This morning I rolled out of bed and started my day at 5:00 a.m. I love watching the sun come up and light up the skyline. I haven't been doing my walkabouts for a few days now, instead opting to do calisthenics in the loft, including jumping jacks, crunches, lunges and running in place.

Today I went for my walkabout despite the heavy coverage of smoke from a fire on 16th and Los Angeles. Today I walked up 5th street, over the Harbor Freeway and back down 6th street. Here are a few of the photos I shot along the way:

Downtown LA Walkabout #6

This morning I woke up at 5:30 a.m., although I tried to wake up at 5:00 it didn't quite happen. After rolling out of bed, weighing myself and drinking my morning glass of water I had a light breakfast, read my news feeds and played a round of the reputedly mind-sharpening Lumosity. I don't normally play games, but I enjoy the quick mental challenges that Lumosity offers and I am considering getting a paid account when my trial runs out, although $80 a year seems kind of steep. After I finished all of that I went on my walkabout and shot some photos:

Aloha From Hawaii : Kauai Day 1

Penelope and I touched down in Hawaii today for a friend's wedding. We're staying at the Kauai Marriot in Lihue. Before we left I picked up a waterproof camera, the Olympus Stylus 850, which I'm very happy with so far. I love having a waterproof ultracompact camera. Here are a few shots from today:

Downtown LA Walkabout #5

On my quest to lose weight and be healthy I have been going on walks through various Downtown LA districts almost every morning. Today I walked through the Fashion District and shot some photos. Here are a few highlights:

Quantum Storage : WIRED News Gallery

A couple weeks ago I got an embargoed preview of an upcoming research paper in Nature. I contacted the scientist involved as well as my press contact at CalTech and asked if I could come down and shoot the experiment at the Quantum Optics laboratory. On Monday morning I went and interviewed the lead author of the paper, a student and researcher named Kyung Soo Choi. He explained the experiment to me, as the Nature article is quite dense, and afterward I shot the lab. Here is the resulting gallery on WIRED News:

Downtown LA Walkabout #4

I can't remember the last time I woke up at 6:00 AM on a Saturday morning when it didn't involve Search and Rescue. I didn't even set an alarm, but when I woke up and rolled over it was just a few minutes after six. I am really enjoying this early rising thing. I used to think I was more productive at night, but now that I'm getting up early I realize that I am actually a more effective worker in the morning.

As I mentioned the other day, I've been following the Zen Habits morning routine, although instead of fixing lunches for the kids, I feed the cats. I have also started getting ready for my day before I go to bed, again per Zen Habit's recommendations. I have really been enjoying the last point, reading myself to bed.

Today after breakfast I went for a brisk 45 minute walk around Downtown Los Angeles. I brought my camera along, and here are a few of the photos I shot:

Downtown Los Angeles Walkabout #3

As you may have noticed, I've been walking around Downtown to get exercise and shooting photos along the way. I'm trying to doing this every day. I think I'm going to do it first thing tomorrow morning after I wake up and have my glass of water (I stopped drinking coffee). I like the Zen Habits morning routing idea, I'm going to give it a shot. Anyhow, here are a few of the photos I shot earlier today:

Downtown LA Walkabout #2

Toady I went for my second walkabout in Downtown Los Angeles, in what will be a series of many such walks. I shot a couple of photos of random interesting things that I saw. I really like the photo of the flying rat pigeon above an alley. These photos were shot with my Canon 5D and a 16-35 f/2.8 L II lens.

One Wilshire Tour

I took a tour of One Wilshire a few weeks ago for WIRED News. I've always been fascinated by One Wilshire ever since I found out about its total coolness over a decade ago. About 8 years ago I got a tour and took some photos, which I can't seem to find in my archive. Luckily I got back and and shot some more:

SAR : Robert Bruner Search Near Mt. Baldy

On Friday night a text message came in informing me that our scheduled training / certification was on hold due to a search call-out. I headed out to San Bernardino to the Sheriff's Office / Jail where we store our team gear. We camped on the floor of the SO's conference room and headed up to Mount Baldy at 4:30 AM.

Team 8 Tracks - Mt. Baldy Search

At around 6:00 AM we were given our assignments. I was assigned team leader for the first time. Our assignment involved riding up the chair lifts to the top of the Mt. Baldy ski area and then hiking down through Cedar Canyon to the Icehouse Canyon Trail [see the red track in the image above].

For the first half of the hike down we wore our crampons due to the slippery (although not treacherous) conditions. For the second half of our mission we walked on south facing scree slopes and boulder fields that had only small patches of snow covering them.

It was a good hike, although our roughly 50 pound packs made the trip physically taxing. When we finally hit an actual trail instead of just hiking through a drainage, it was a welcome relief. Unfortunately our team didn't find the subject. According to this article his body was found by two hikers.

Downtown Los Angeles Walkabout 1

Now that I'm 30 I've decided it is time to lose some weight. Part of that will involve adjusting my diet to lower my caloric intake. Another part will involve exercise. I am making the exercise part fun by going for an hour walk every day around Downtown and shooting photos along the way. I plan on going a different way each day to avoid monotony, today I walked over to Little Tokyo to drop off a Demand Warrant for DLANC. Here are a few photos I shot along the way:

Danger Dog Dealer

Road Closed : Marathon

Little Tokyo Lofts

You can check out the rest of my Downtown Walkabout photos here.

Update I totally forgot to mention that these were shot with my brand new lens, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II. So far I'm really digging it. Also Jim Winstead pointed out the irony of my first choice of photo in a post about losing weight!

WIRED News : UCLA Nanotech Lab Tour

Last week at UCLA I was given a really interesting tour of Dr. Omar M. Yaghi's laboratory where he and his students have created some amazing nanotechnology that has nearly unlimited potential. The gallery just went live:

Lunar Eclipse Video

I made this video with roughly 500 shots from my Canon 5D. At some point I need to either buy or build an intervalometer. I have that generic Arduino kit that I need to put together and put to use. Sounds like another project in the making, just what I need.

It looks better bigger, and much better at full size [145MB Quicktime]

Lunar Eclipse from Downtown Los Angeles

I don't think I had ever witnessed a complete lunar eclipse before. It was a cool experience. The weather in Downtown LA cleared up perfectly a few hours ago and it stayed clear until a cloud partially obscured the moon just after totality. Very beautiful:

I'm also exporting a video right now form the 579 stills I shot. Stand by for that. =]

Stanford Linear Accelerator Awesomeness on WIRED News

Earlier this year I was treated to a wonderful tour of the Stanford Linear Accelerator. As you know, I love shooting photos of geek / nerdy / techy subjects and SLAC did not disappoint. I've been working with my photo editor at WIRED News ( for weeks on this gallery and it just went live:

Land of Nuclear Enchantment : My first solo gallery show

Land of Nuclear Enchantment

This summer I took a road trip to my old stomping ground in New Mexico. Along the way I toured some of my favorite places including Los Alamos and shot photos of some beautiful scenery as well as cool nuclear equipment. I have put together a show that includes a juxtaposition between the lovely natural wilderness and the cold technology that has been a key part of the nuclear weapons industry that is peppered throughout said wilderness.

All of the photos were creating using an HDR / Tone-Mapping process and have been printed with my Epson Stylus Pro 3800 on Ultrasmooth Fine Art Matte paper which has an estimated archival life of over 100 years.

The show will be taking place at the Niche Video Art gallery (although there will be no video involved) and the opening is on Thursday during the Downtown Art Walk between noon and 9pm. Please come down and take a look at the prints if you get a chance! Here is the address:

Social Networking Madness : I Can Has Updates?

Over the years I've been using various social networks here and there, but for the most part I've been posting my content directly to this site, I spent a few hours today going through all my profiles and updating my bio, tags, links and whatnot. Here is what I updated my bio to:

Dave Bullock / eecue is the offspring of a photographer and a programmer. He has been sifting through bits on the internet since he was young and along the way has taught himself programming, UNIX and photography. Dave is a frequent contributor to WIRED News and a member of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team. When he's not shooting photos of geeky stuff around Los Angeles, you can usually find him crawling through a cave, out in the desert or rescuing a wayward hiker.

And here is my one liner:

Programmer / Photographer / Admin / Human

And my tags:

programming, photography, downtown los angeles, los angeles, cooking, desert, search and rescue, SAR, electronics, ham radio, microcontrollers, hacking, computer security, wired, photojournalism, hiking

Here is the daunting list of social networking sites I have profiles on, along with a short description of what it is all about. [If you want to join a site that is invite only, let me know and I'll make with an invite]:

  • 43 Things - A fun list sharing sit for goals.
  • Bebo - Bebo is a blogging site, they really need to add RSS importing though.
  • Blip TV - A social video site, which allows you to upload content in HD with no size limit. I use it for both my personal movies and D2LA footage.
  • Delicious - This is a social bookmarking site. I've been using Delicious frequently, and their site posts my links to on a daily basis.
  • Digg - Digg is a great social news site, the only problem is that the more friends you have the slower the site loads. SQL optimization time guys!
  • Dopplr - Dopplr is a pretty cool social travel site with very a simple feature-set and interface.
  • Facebook - Facebook is currently the best social network IMHO. It has plenty of great features. Some of the application invites get really annoying, but they recently added a feature to ignore certain apps.
  • Good Reads - GR is a reading list / book list sharing site. My next project is to catalog the hundreds of books I own and upload them to GR and Library Thing.
  • Jaiku - Jaiku is a pretty cool social aggregation site. Although, it seems to have some RSS importing issues right now.
  • JungleScene - JS is a site I run about drum'n'bass and jungle in Los Angeles. It's a fairly active forum site that I started in 1999.
  • Last.FM - Last FM is social music site. I haven't installed the app yet, but I will soon.
  • Library Thing - LT is another book list social site.
  • LinkedIn - Linkedin is a social network for professionals. I have my resume up there, although I'm not currently seeking employment.
  • MeFi - Metafilter is an old school social new site. I've been a member for some time now, but I actually rarely use it anymore. I'll have to check back more often.
  • Ning - Ning is a site creation platform that you can use to build a complete internet community. I wish they would allow you to use 5 character site / user names!
  • - Tribe is a social networking site that some of my hacker friends used. I never really did much with it.
  • Pownce - Pownce is another social network site that you upload files, photos and text to.
  • Xanga - A blogging platform. I'm not sure about this one, will probably kill my account at some point.
  • My Yahoo Profile - Not really a social networking site, but yahoo does allow for a profile.
  • Reddit - Reddit is a cool and simple social news site. Full-disclosure: I am a frequent contributor to WIRED News who's parent company owns Reddit.
  • Slashdot - I used to spend a lot of time on Slashdot, but I mostly just use digg now and my RSS reader. I do still subscribe to an RSS feed from Slashdot.
  • StumbleUpon - SU is one of my new addictions, I can seriously waste hours finding new and cool sites by hitting the stumble button. Unfortunately it only works in Firefox and I've been using Safari since the Leopard updates.
  • Tailrank - Tailrank is a meme aggregator. You feed it an OPML file and it give you a listing of what people are talking about that day.
  • Technorati - Technorati is a massive blog aggregator and link tracker.
  • Twitter - Twitter is a great little site for posting short thoughts online. It's like instant messaging that all your friends can see.
  • Upcoming - Upcoming is a social calendaring site.
  • Vox - Vox is a blogging platform, but also includes cool RSS aggregation features as well as linking to your other social profiles.
  • YouTube - I've only uploaded a couple movies to YouTube, but one of them has over 100,000 views. I need to get an ultracompact digicam that has better video capabilities and use it more often!


  • Virb - This is a cool site for artists and musicians.
  • Myspace - Totally forgot I had this. I updated my profile, but I don't have any friends. =]
  • Blogger - I've actually had this page since 2002, but I've always just used my own software for blogging. I updated the page with my RSS feed and profile.
  • Naymz : I can't tell if this is really a legit service, but it seems cool enough. Could just be a personal detail data mining site.
  • Yelp - I've been meaning to use Yelp more often.
  • ClaimID - This seems like an interesting aggregator, will have to set it up with my other sites.
  • Mugshot - A social network aggregator that may actually be useful.
  • Profilactive - Another aggregator.
  • Ziki - YASNR
  • Uber - forgot about this one as well.
  • Wink - Seems like an interesting social contact site.
  • LiveJournal - I totally forgot I had this.
  • MyBlogLog - I also forgot I had signed up for this.
  • Deviant Art - I'm going to upload some of my better photos to here at some point
  • Tumblr - Another microfeed site. I think I'm going to write a tool to post to every one of my social sites at once.
  • Twitxr - Scott Beale set this up today so I figured I'd give it a try.
  • Buzznet - I uploaded a few photos here once... someday maybe more.
  • Friend Feed - Another social feed aggregator.

Some Changes to this Site: Side Bar, Comments, Link Posts, Images, Blogs, Share This, Error

Hello Readers! Thanks for following my blog. I hope you've been enjoying my writing and photos over the years. Don't worry, I'm going to keep blogging and shooting! I made some changes to the site last week and last night. Here is a quick rundown of what has changed:

  • Error Page: I have updated my error page to actually be helpful, before it was worthless, but now when you land on it, you'll find it much more helpful.
  • Side Bar: Added blog categories list, added full archives listing, removed login
  • Comments: I have totally removed the comments section from this site. They were hard to use (almost impossible) and spambots spent all day trying to spam them, although they did actually fail, but still. I will be reintroducing comments when I release the next version of this site. If you want to comment on a post, email me and I'll update the post with your comment and a link back to you (link the old boingboing style)
  • Links: As I'm sure you've noticed I've been automatically posting my links from every day. I hope you're enjoying this. Let me know through email either way.
  • Image Layout: I've changed the layout of the image pages by simplifying the interface and moving the album information to below the image. I've also added a share this button.
  • Blogs: I've added a date posted field as well as a share this button.
  • ShareThis: I saw this post on laughing squid and decided to add that functionality to my site. You will find a ShareThis badge on every page now.

Let me know what you think!

NAMM 2008 on WIRED News

Leopard Bug : BCC w/ Subject

Today I sent out a little update to my friends and contacts about the recent galleries of mine on WIRED News. Unfortunately these emails went out with no Subject. This is due to a bug with Leopard's Basically if you have more than a few hundred addresses in the BCC field, the Subject line gets lost somewhere along the line. Here is a thread on the Apple support forums discussing it. Sorry to all the folks who ended up getting that email twice with no subject! Emails without a subject are a huge pet peeve of mine.

UPDATE 10.5.2 fixes this issue, thanks Apple!

Glass Shard vs. Dave : Glass Shard Wins

The day before yesterday I dropped a glass bottle on the floor, which I then picked up and vacuumed off the floor. I warned my wife to not walk around barefoot just in case. I should have heeded my own advice. Yesterday I was walking barefoot in my loft and I stepped on a shard of glass which lodged itself deep in the arch of my left foot. I tried to get it out with a pair of fine tweezers I sterilized.

The self-help tweezing didn't work so I called Penelope who came home and she also tried to get it out. With the glass still stuck in my foot we decided to call our doctor. He saw me right away, but said that he wouldn't be able to get it out and to go to the Emergency Room.

The doctor injected the wound with lidocaine and went to work. After about 15 minutes of probing my foot with a pair of sharp tweezers and enlarging the entry hole to about triple its original size she pulled out the shard of glass. It was about 10mm x 9mm x 1mm and quite sharp. I was amazed that piece fit in through the tiny entry hole which was only about 3mm wide. I guess skin is quite stretchy!

The procedure didn't hurt at all thanks to the lidocaine, and I went home without any pain. In the middle of the night the lidocaine wore off and I was awoken by the extreme pain in my foot. I am basically unable to walk, I can sort of hobble and hop, but my foot is extremely sensitive even when I'm laying down. The doctor prescribed me some pain meds, which Penelope is picking up right now.

This weekend I am shooting NAMM for WIRED News, so I have rented a wheel chair. That should be interesting.

UPDATE I've been working from Downtown LA (read: home) today and my foot is feeling much better. Penelope picked up my 'script of Tramadol, but I haven't taken any yet. I think I'll probably pass for now. The pain isn't so bad when I'm just sitting around. She also went out of her way and picked up a wheelchair for me (which WIRED News is footing the bill for) that I'll use to make my way around NAMM tomorrow and Sunday. Hopefully that will work out.

Goodbye Newsfire, Hello Again NetNewsWire

I have been using Newsfire since February of last year. It was the first RSS reader that I've ever paid money for. Newsfire had a good deal of issues that I didn't like. I emailed the Newsfire developer and asked if a bug could be fixed, but he replied that NewsFire wasn't in a development cycle. He wasn't very nice about it either. Anyhow, I had been tempted to go back to NetNewsWire for some time now, but never did because I didn't want to pay for a second RSS reader. Luckily for me NewsGator is now giving away NetNewsWire for free! I have switched back and I am extremely happy so far.
