More photographs

More pictures I’ve taken this week, mostly with my iPhone; hope you enjoy them! DirecTV had its Programmer’s Day – the companies that provide our programming bring their swag and set up in tents for a 2 1/2 hour party; it was cool to walk around and check out all the varied content DirecTV provides.

I love high-contrast abstract photography. After cleaning the grill, I noticed what I thought was a cool shot, so I grabbed my camera; here’s the picture:

Visit to Palm Springs, Wayne Thiebaud retrospective

Make your very own IC earring

My geekiest fashion accessory is my IC earring; I’ve made several because friends have asked (sometimes demanded!) them.  I’ve also been stopped numerous times when wearing this – everyone wants to know if that is a computer chip?

Some pictures from Little Tokyo

On Valentines Day Aviva arranged for his and hers shiatsu massages.  So we drove down to Little Tokyo separately (Aviva was volunteering at a MOCA event that evening) and had our massages.  A traditional massage is done through clothes, so make sure to wear loose fitting comfortable clothes.  And the massage did wonders for both […]

We learned about the three roles: Product owner Scrum Master Team […]
