San Francisco’s Pier 39, with the Bay Bridge in the background. August, 2011. I was reminded of this song (CD here): I wouldn’t say I’m a super emotional personal person. I’m not good with using words to describe how I feel or what I’m thinking–pictures and music often do a better job.

Again, Google continues to carry out its mission: to try to take over the world. I’ve just downloaded the Picasa 3 beta. You can now make movies, take screenshots and webcam shots, add watermarks and print captions. It also comes with a new photo viewer that looks like this: Hey, the easter egg still works! Anyone else trying out the beta?

Edited: Friday, August 22 When I got back, everyone kept asking why I didn’t stay for the Olympics. My answer was “it’s better watching it on TV.” But now that I’ve seen these pictures, I guess being at the opening ceremonies wouldn’t have been too bad.
