Couple photos

Here are a few pictures I've taken around town.

Fog at my place:


Kitty (and distant puppy) at Michelle's:


And the Irazu Volcano, seen from San Rafael:

I started carrying my camera around again because one day last week I was dropping the kids off at school and I saw a column of something rising, not from Irazu, but off to the left/north of it. It looked like a volcanic eruption of some sort - for starters, it was white not black, and the column rose straight up and then just sort of hung there in a cloud.

As you can see above, I can see the top of Irazu pretty clearly, so I could tell it wasn't Irazu that was erupting. And I didn't think we could see any of the others from here.

So, I did what anyone would do, and phoned the morning show DJ to see if she knew what was going on. She didn't, so she put my call on the air and asked around. A few minutes later a guy called up to say it was just the Turrialba volcano erupting again. The DJ's final word: "Hey, this jungle phone thing really works!"

The next day, I thought I could actually see a bit of the summit of Turrialba (the first day all I saw was the steam/gas). It's been hazy ever since then, but today it was clear and I took the photo above. I believe the small bit that seems to be set off from the rest of the mountain on the far left there is actually the other volcano, farther in the distance.

And finally, a bit of a warning against future disappointment:

My college is looking to expand its online presence and take advantage of social networking and all that good stuff, so the next post you see here is probably going to consist of a few photos & links for them.

Well, I for one am glad you started carrying around your camera. Nice stuff!

I'm in love with all of these photos. And I wonder if I can get away with the cat in my carry-on. ;)
