Ship Struck Bay Bridge Tower

In other news, a cargo ship hit the Bay Bridge support tower and is now leaking fuel into the bay. It is floating around our pier, so everyone in the office is smelling the scent of fuel. I don't think this very good for anyone or any creature's health for that matter.

Asian Art Museum - "Matcha Night"


I had a blast volunteering with the Asian Art Museum yesterday. I helped out with the hands-on activity called, "Textured Photography". In the end, I had the opportunity to create my own photos as well. We had a huge set up. I had the best volunteer spot managing the chemistry. After the photopaper had been prepared, I explained to the visitors to drop it in the developer and use the tongs to agitate the paper through the developer. The chemical reaction exposed the image and it appears to be like magic watching the image reveal itself. Then they put the photo in the 1st fix, (the stop) to keep it from becoming too exposed (too dark).
It was so much fun.

I made a couple of textured photos myself.
