Sadly, I have turned on comment moderation. I escaped the spammers for several years, but alas that innocent time is past. I refuse to put on word verification - I have so much trouble with it that I definitely restrict my commenting because of it. Sorry for the hassle and thanks for visiting!
A viola player by the tug of my heart, sidetracked by a career in technology. My favourite programming language is solder, and I'm a ham radio operator because it's an excuse to build lots of strange stuff.
I started a photo blog because of the beauty I first saw in Eric Tenin's Paris Daily Photo. Through him, I discovered the City Daily Photo ring, and I thought I'd give it a whirl. I'm not as dedicated as he is though, so I do miss some days.
Today is election day in the US. If one watches the news on TV, reads the papers, Twitter, Facebook or the comments to just about any YouTube video, one could easily assume that the only elected official in the country is the president, and that he has the sort of powers to govern that the absolute monarchs of yore couldn't even dream of.
I live in New York, and both major political parties have taken our presidential vote for granted. There aren't many signs for president out in my neighbourhood, and in fact, there aren't many campaign signs in my neighbourhood whatsoever. I was reduced to blindly pointing the camera out of the car window to capture this cluster of signs while on my way to work. Like most of the campaign signs I do see, these are for state level elections.
