Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

MOTHER OF EXILES. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.


"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

~ Emma Lazarus


Did you know that the Statue of Liberty has several webcams in her torch and throughout the grounds?

Most people associate San Francisco’s summer as its foggy season. For photographers, however, the winter is when “fog season” starts. With the cooler temperates the fog drops in elevation and on those perfect mornings it sits right at the deck of the Golden Gate Bridge. Those of us hoping to photograph the bridge wake up early on particular mornings to check.


A new webcam, EarthCam, was installed in SF on the approach to the GGB — in this photo just below Sutro Tower, the big antenna thing near the back of the bridge (in reality that tower, and the webcam are miles away, but just for reference, below it). On this particular morning Willie and I woke up, saw fog on the webcam, and jumped in the car and drove to the city.


Getting to the bridge was a bit of a disappointment — we new immediately that there would be no morning fog. It was mostly clear. A small patch of fog sat where the webcam was but no where else. We walked out to Battery Spencer and enjoyed the sunrise for a bit before hopping back in the car and heading to work. At least it was a beautiful way to start the day!

The Statue of Liberty is a figure of a robed woman representing Libertas, a Roman goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed in Roman numerals with "JULY IV MDCCLXXVI" (July 4, 1776), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.


"The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.

"Turm der 300 Meter" - der bekannteste Eisenfachwerkturm der Welt - an iron lattice tower

Construite par Gustave Eiffel et ses collaborateurs pour l’Exposition universelle de Paris de 1889, et initialement nommée « tour de 300 mètres », ce monument est devenu le symbole de la capitale française, et un site touristique de premier plan :

Elle a accueilli son 250 millionième visiteur en 2010.



Bauausführung: Gustave Eiffel und seine Mitarbeiter für die Weltausstellung von Paris 1889.

Im Jahr seiner Eröffnung bestiegen im Rahmen der Weltausstellung 1889 knapp 1,9 Millionen der insgesamt 32,3 Millionen Ausstellungsbesucher auch den Eiffelturm.

Zu Beginn betrug die Höhe des Turms lediglich 307 Meter und war als Blickfang gedacht. Heute nutzt man den Eiffelturm aber auch als Antennenmast, weswegen seine Höhe auf 329.75 Meter vergrössert wurde.


Zunächst nur als "Turm der 300 Meter" geplant,

wurde dieses Denkmal zum Symbol der Hauptstadt Frankreichs, und einer der führenden Touristenattraktion: Einschließlich 2011 haben seit Eröffnung über 260 Millionen das Bauwerk besichtigt und machen es damit zu dem meistbesichtigten der Welt.

An Spitzentagen rund 35.000 Besucher am Tag.

A meteor sometimes called a "shooting star," can be the brightest object in the night sky, yet meteoroids are the smallest bodies in the solar system that can be observed by eye. Wandering through space, perhaps as debris left behind by a comet, meteoroids enter the earth's atmosphere, are heated by friction, and for a few seconds streak across the sky as a meteor with a glowing trail.

A brilliant meteor, called a fireball, may weigh many kilograms, but even a meteor weighing less than a gram can produce a beautiful trail. Some of these visitors from space are large enough to survive (at least partially) their trip through the atmosphere and impact the ground as meteorites. Fireballs are sometimes followed by trails of light that persist for up to 30 minutes; some, called bolides, explode with a loud thunderous sound.

How can a particle the size of a grain of sand produce such a spectacular sight? The answer is the speed at which the meteoroid enters the earth's atmosphere. Many meteoroids travel at 60-70 kilometers per second. As a comparison, the shuttle moves around the earth at about 8 kilometers per second.

During its trip through the atmosphere, meteoroids collide with air molecules, knocking away materials and stripping electrons from the meteor. When the stripped atoms recapture electrons, light is emitted. The color of the light depends on the temperature and the material being "excited."

On almost any night a few meteors an hour will be seen from any one place. However, periodically there are meteor showers, with hundreds of meteors emanating from the same apparent spot in the sky. These showers typically last from a few hours to several days. These showers are usually associated with comet paths, and are caused by debris expelled by the comet.

Each day as many as 4 billion meteors, most miniscule in size, fall to earth. Their masses total several tons, seemingly a large amount, but negligible compared to the earth's total mass of 6,600,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons.


"On space walk day, you start off with an exercise period on a stationary bicycle while breathing 100% oxygen through a facemask. After that, the task of suiting up begins. You rely on help from an extra crew member who tugs on sleeves, straightens out wrinkles, locks connectors…. It reminds me of a squire in the Middle Ages helping his knight suit up for battle."


"It takes about six hours from the time you start in the morning until you are ready to open the hatch. After all of this preparation, you will not take lightly to a hatch that does not want to open. That’s what happened to us before our spacewalk earlier this year. The hatch dogs were partly released and allowed the hatch to crack open only 3/8th of an inch. A shaft of brilliant sunlight came through the crack, as if teasing us to come out and play."


"Fortunately, experience gained by owning an old pickup truck with cantankerous doors came in handy. With a little jockeying on the handle and some soft-spoken words, the hatch came open and we started our day."


"If we were chasing bad guys, I am afraid they would be well into hyperspace by now."


"In the sci-fi movies, astronauts can quickly don their spacesuits and in short order, be out the door into the vacuum of space. They’re always in a hurry to chase bad guys, alien monsters, or look for holes in the hull spewing out precious atmosphere," ISS science officer Don Pettit.


NASA and other organizations have developed a sophisticated weather monitoring device.

This NASA Global Climate Model (GCM) is used to see how Earth's climate is changing.

A GCM calculates many things, such as how much sunlight is reflected and absorbed by Earth's atmosphere, the temperature of the air and oceans, the distribution of clouds, rainfall, and snow, and what may happen to the polar ice caps in the future.



Thursday, March 17, 2016- 77/366 (2999/3288)- Evidently the hot thing these days is coming up with elaborate ways to ask a date to the prom, like waiting until we pose for group photos in Times Square and then using big posters to ask. I guess folks on EarthCam got to watch this also.


And she obviously did say yes!

Family Court, Philadelphia. T4 flew in from the West and spent a while sitting on the Franklin Institute's EarthCam. Eventually he flew to the Mormon temple where F2 was already perched. He made a couple of unsuccessful hunting attempts while she just sat until after sunset.

Third and final shot from the outer light at St. Joseph. I liked how the ice was enough to cover the light while still showing off its details.


I had been wanting to photograph this lighthouse for a long time. After checking the weather forecast and earthcam, I knew this was the opportunity I had been waiting for. After a quick stop to buy ice crampons for my boots I made the 3.5 hour drive down to St. Joseph.


It was great being out there but don't think I will be walking around the edge of the inner lighthouse again any time soon. If you want more details read the description in the first photo of this series and look at the video clip I posted.


Stay warm everyone!

This is sunset on Venice Beach, Los Angeles, on a rainy day a year and a day ago in November 2007.


Venice is home to an ocean front walk lined with performers, wild denizens and tacky stores, posh neighbourhoods with canals running through them, up-and-coming artists studios and the infamous Muscle Beach where "Governator" Arnold Schwarzenegger was discovered. It's an odd mix of the elite and the impoverished; I've never seen in one place so many Tattoo Parlours and Marijuana paraphernlia stores as there are lining Venice Beach's Ocean Front Walk, and as I walked Venice Beach taking pictures I caught images of blonde women walking purebreads, and lifegaurd huts with the homeless huddling from the rain beneath them (take a close look at this old photo ). Kate Beckinsale, Anjelica Houston and Nicholas Cage call Venice home, but despite it's "gentrification" in recent decades it still remains a place where "...the gunplay of the Shoreline Crips and the V-13 is as much a part of life in Venice as pit bulls playing with blond Labs at the local dog park."


I'm posting this because work has confirmed we're a go for returning to California. So I've been revisiting the photos I took a year ago. I have to admit I cringe a little; I see potential in so many shots, but I can't do anything with them. I'm at that weird point where my photo skills are much better and I would have taken the photos better, but my post-processing skills with graphics program aren't up to recovering what potential I know remains in the images. Maybe another year.


In the meantime I'll collect new images and hopefully you'll be seeing some nice new stuff.

That building on the left is the Palace of the Governors. It is the oldest public building still in use in the United States.

At the end of the street notice the snow in the Santa Fe Mountains. Santa Fe is at the edge of the foot hills 7,500 feet above sea level. It is the capital of New Mexico. On the left behind those pillers local native americans sell their handycrafts on a daily basis. I avoided capturing them as many object to being photographed.


Here is the link for the Earth Cam shown in the above notes:
