This is another image taken along Santa Fe’s famous Canyon Road – where many of the city’s art galleries are located. It was late afternoon and we were slowly walking up the road to have dinner at Geronimo (where I had elk for the first time – sourced from New Zealand and marinated for a day in dark beer!).
I loved how the late afternoon sun was lighting up these two pieces of our door sculpture and captured this shot with my Fujifilm X-T1. Post-processed in Lightroom using VSCO Film.
We recently spent a few days in Santa Fe – with my Fujifilm X-T1 and iPhone 5s.
This is one of my favorite shots from the weekend – shot inside the main building at Jackalope with the Fujifilm X-T1. I titled it “Iridescent” – that’s what the vibrant colors brought to mind.
Jackalope reminds me of the old Cost Plus Imports in San Francisco – imports from all over the world, lots of doo dads and trinkets – and some beautiful fabric and pottery. A place to step out of whatever your normal is.
If you go to Santa Fe, be sure to visit Jackalope!
While visiting an import store in Santa Fe, I came across these candles from Indonesia. There was beautiful indirect light coming through the room providing some beautiful contrasts across the shapes of the candles.

Yesterday we taught a Bitcoin payments workshop at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. It was fun talking about the future of payments and virtual currencies in such a setting – with rooms full of vintage hardware on the floor below! It also reminded me that we need to be thinking about creating a “Payments History Museum” someplace on the planet!
The new Revolution exhibit at the Computer History Museum is stunning – beautifully laid out and thematically organized. One of the areas is devoted to “Mainframes” – and, as I came into that area, this IBM System/360 Model 30 was on display.
I have many fond memories of the Model 30 – I probably logged more hands-on datacenter time on the Model 30 than any other mainframe. While it was primarily a DOS machine, I’d also put together a trimmed down version of OS/360 which I could also run in the limited memory of the Model 30.
Seeing this “beauty” brought back lots of memories!…
