Conan O'Brien is one of the classiest people on television. His goodbye on the Tonight Show is really quite inspiring. I love his last words. Enjoy. Click Here to view the Video. Thanks to the Huffington Post for the original article.

I guess it's official. My photo-a-day experiment has completely derailed. I still want to keep taking pictures, but for a couple of days pics were not turning out (bad lighting with a bad camera) or I was actually not leaving the house. I took this on Friday when I went to lunch with my buddy Tyler at Islands in Mira Mesa.

Day Eleven of the Photo-A-Day, and I missed another day. Oh well. Today I played around with my thumbnail camera and took a ton of pictures while I was out and about looking for lunch. Strangely I found I really liked this little picture I took out in front of my house when I got home. It's that weird sensation that you can travel the world looking for what you want, only to return home and realize you always had it.

The 2010 Photo-A-Day experiment continues. I skipped the 7th and 8th because I did not see anything to take photos of, and because I forgot my camera. Today's picture is the sunset from my front porch. The rest of the country can suck it.

The 2010 Photo-a-day experiment continues, and to be fair, I already missed a day. In case you were not paying attention, obviously I wasn't, I missed yesterday the 5th. Shrug. Today's picture is of the San Diego Downtown skyline from the land side. Most of the time you see majestic pictures from the water side of the skyline. But I know a spot near my house that affords me a gorgeous site and a great place to read a book.

Okay so today's picture is kind of interesting. I took the thumb camera with me to run errands today and tried to snap shots of interesting things I saw while I was driving. The photos came out pretty good considering but not a lot of them took. I guess moving made the camera not take pictures. This is the one I liked best because I was trying to take a picture of the Kensington 100 Years sign over by Ponce's Mexican Restaurant in Kensington. I ended up almost missing the sign completely and taking a picture of the freeway sign. You can still just barely see the Ken sign on the right hand side of the picture.

After a long day of helping Matt and his Dad work on the garage, cleaning the kitchen, and then watching the Chargers beat the Redskins, I sat back and enjoyed a couple of beers and played some Xbox 360.

Day 2 of the Photo-a-day experiment. I felt like shit for most of the day today, mixture of too much drinking and trying to get back into shape. It's really amazing how fast it goes when you let yourself be lazy for a long time. Went for a walk yesterday and helped dig up a trench the other day, and I felt 20 years older then I really am. Only cure for that is to keep being active again. Part of the reason I was digging a trench was helping Matt and his Dad retrofit our garage into more a room so that Matt can have an office that is not 2 degrees away from freezing and has it's own power run out there. This picture is Matt and Jack putting in a ceiling on the garage at the Arnold House. Men at Work.

Welcome to a new experiment I am trying. First of all shout out to my friend Shea for this idea. Last year Shea started taking pictures of himself on New Years and continued for weeks. He was experimenting with taking a photo a day. Then later in the year my buddy Hula started doing the same thing, but not pictures of himself, just a picture a day. So here is the first day of my 2010 exploration/journey and Photo-A-Day. These may be photos of me, places I am at, things I like, but they will all be photos taken by me. I may miss a day of uploading or blogging, but this will be the place I post the photos and at the end of 2010 on 12/31/2010 I will be posting a massive photo montage through Flickr or something. Maybe I will do retrospectives for each month. Should be fun. To kick off 2010 I went for a walk this morning and took a shot of my neighborhood. This is on the corner of Hamilton St. and Myrtle Ave. behind my house.
