Random Photos and Drive-by Shootings

I've been taking pictures lately but haven't been posting any. So, while hanging out in the hotel room NOT working on my novel like I should, I thought I'd share some of my latest photographs:

This is a photo of the front grille of our server rack. I also took a head-on shot, but this one is more 'artistic,' I think.


As you can see, not *ALL* hotels are superstitious!  This is a photo from the Cosmopolitan's elevator in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  I wonder how many objections they get from patrons who are assigned the unlucky floor...


I almost deleted this, but the more I looked at it, the more I liked the way the mirror reflected the camera's flash.  It makes the elevator seem much, much tighter than it actually was.

On the way home from Fayetteville, you can see the nuclear power plant from I-40.  I took this while driving (sshh, don't tell my wife), and the juxtaposition of the giant power monster next to the plant that supplies the juice was uncanny.  (okay, all you Phineas and Fern fans can say it now: "and by uncanny, I mean COMPLETELY CANNY!)

This morning on my way to North Little Rock for a tech meeting, I watched the sun rise in my rear view mirror.  The photo does not even come close to expressing the bright orange light, but I liked the orange sun peeking through the mist behind me.

Racing past trees can get one dizzy even when looking at a still shot of the event!

When I turned on to I-30, the sun was beside me, rising in the distance...
