In September of 2001 I bought myself a digital camera, a Canon ELPH S110. Ostensibly with my "tax refund"
cheque. It's a neat little techno-toy, a little like my Palmy.
The plan is to try to update this page with photos from events in my life.
In 2002 I took my S110 to a beach party and apparently got some sand in it -- it died. Now I have a S200.
(Most recent images first) Note that I'm also posting photos on flickr:

Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk On the 9th of November '03 Debby and her friend Brenda finished the 60 mile Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk (and helped raise
lots of money for cancer research). Kelly and Dave and I joined Laurie in San Francisco to see them cross the finish line

Berkeley Kite Festival.
The Oakland Paramount One Friday in July '03 my friend Terry suggested we see the classic movie
"Charade" at the
Paramount Theatre in Oakland.
It's a lovely old-style Art Deco building. Oakland has a number of Art Deco building because, unlike San Francisco, it hasn't had
any major earthquakes. We went late in the evening and I didn't get a chance to see a lot, so I went back that weekend.

In 2002, my first year, it had rained like the end of the world so this year I took a disposable camera.
I got a photo CD when I had it developed but the scans are pretty bad.
European Vacation In April/May of 2003 I had a two week vacation in Europe. I arrived in Frankfurt where my
friends Nick and Lucy live. My friend Sian flew in from London and the next day she and I flew to Venice for a
few days. She went home and I joined Nick and Lucy in Rome for a few more days. Some of the hundreds of
photos I took.
