I am going to pause for awhile … and light some candles for the victims of the Arizona massacre. Prayers and condolences to the families of the slain and the wounded in the Arizona shooting. I remember, Sarah Palin’s campaign put out this poster during the November 2010 elections – targeting incumbents with the cross [...]

My apologies to my entrecard droppers. I have problems dropping – I can’t get to the Entrecard server! Here’s the error message: Entrecard application server failed The server that does the complicated work has not responded in time, this could be due to load, due to an upgrade happening, or something else even weirder. An [...]
I-90 (I think), somewhere in Michigan on our way to Canada I am on a road trip around the southeastern part of Canada so my Internet connection is a little bit spotty. i thought the hotels’ connections will be ok … some are but some are super slow. Tonight I am staying at a friend’s [...]
I wish I know what you’re thinking … Posing for a Portrait, originally uploaded by Flipped Out. Over the years, I shut down the comment section periodically because of spam. I opened enabled it again two days ago but apparently, there were still problems. But it’s ok now. Strange though, only new posts are open [...]

Another fifteen minutes of fame for this photograph: Gapers Block Rearview for 11 August 2008. This also appeared in the book “Capture My Chicago,” published by CBS2 Chicago.
There’s supposed to be over 70,000,000 blogs floating around in the blogosphere. Someone had a great idea to see how long it will take to get a million of these voluntarily listed in one place. So I’m helping out. I am #2041 in the list that started in April 2008. It’s a little bit slow [...]
… will rise a new Uncommon Photographers site. I was upgrading the OS of my server when … disaster struck.¬† Of all the sites that are housed on the server, I forgot to back up the database of one site … because I thought I had backed it up yesterday.¬† It’s this site, and no, [...]
Woohoo! About two weeks ago, the local content director of Examiner.com’s Chicago edition stumbled upon my Chicago Expat site and invited me to be one of their examiners. According to her, “Examiner features news content, video and interactive media from AP, local media, etc. but what will set us apart are our Examiners, essentially local [...]
It’s been a long time.
Got another photo featured at National Geographic’s Intelligent Travel blog, this time about the downside of great apes tourism. As usual, they saw me on flickr. Flickr is great! Now, if only I could monetize this .
I’m trying to test a new template from pixelpost.org for Uncommon here. Any suggestions? In the comments section of the new site please, thanks.
Travelling today. I had hoped to catch photographers at the airports (Chicago Midway, LA and Oakland, CA) but … was not able to – too scared of zealous security personnel. But here’s a shot of Chicago as soon as my plane took off for LA:
Again. Another photograph featured at Gapers Block.
Got included again in Gapers Block, this time though, not at Rearview but in an article about dating during summer in Chicago.
I have included new category called mirror project moment. I just remembered, I have contributed to the now defunct Mirror Project in the past, waaay back in the past (and actually had a few pictures featured in their front page) and had just rekindled my interest on the site because of a similar site on [...]
I finally found a high speed connection in Banaue (of all places) while travelling around north of the Philippines. And sad to say, the cafe is located in my hotel but nobody told me about it and I only knew about it during my last night … at 7 pm, and they close at ten. [...]
