Falkirk Wheel on Flickr Explore

by on Aug.11, 2007, under Uncategorized

Another of my Scottish pictures made it into Flickr Explore this week. This is a list of the 500 most “interesting” photos uploaded on any given day. This probably sounds like a lot of picture but when you realise that there are somewhere over 3000 uploaded every minute, it sounds rather more impressive (not that I am blowing my trumpet, of course). The New Lanark picture below also made it into Explore for the day it was uploaded.
This picture is a composite made with 5 shots taken as the Falkirk Wheel was turning. The result was then tweaked somewhat for artistic effect and I am pretty happy with the way it turned out.

End of an employment era

by on Aug.11, 2007, under Uncategorized

For the first time in 13 years, I’m between jobs. I started working for Brooktree on September 6th, 1994 and remained there through an acquisition by Rockwell Semiconductor Systems and a spin-off into Conexant. Today, however, was my last day. I’ve accepted a new job offer from a local startup and will be changing jobs this coming Thursday.
Conexant was a great place to be but it’s time for the next chapter and a move to something new.
