@Skyentist that's a great sunset picture. You've gone and made me want to post my nature pictures now.
Forewarning: Long post. Probably isn't going to be meaningful.
I've been absent for a while because I've been really busy. I figured since the few of you are posting photos/photo dumps, and how much I love seeing other people's passions/adventures/dogs/cool stuff, I figured to contribute.
Lots of these are going to be nature related. Like @Skyentist, I'm a nature-lover. Mainly because I was raised out in the woods for ~10 years (quite literally out in the woods). Since I have moved back to California I visit my Dad often and I grab photos of my... I guess it's not my yard? We have a fair amount of acreage so it's just .... I guess... the acreage. When the sun sets the sun beams can get ridiculously pretty, and I grabbed a few. (pictures)
Earlier this month I went to DEF Con. I got to participate in a lot of contests this year. Didn't really win anything because I was a one person army. We got to take apart a rental car; ripped up and dismantled the dashboard, hooked up the mess of wires and downloaded code that the car runs. Few pictures of Las Vegas, being in the lofts, and some neato stuff they built. There's a lot of cool videos of DEF Con talks if any of you are interested. (pictures)
I went on a mini-vacation to Bodega Bay I favor the northern beaches more than the southern, mainly because I like things with a lot of moodiness and maybe a bit of difficulty climbing. ;p (pictures)
I also went to Seattle to visit my friends again. Got some pictures of the farm we all camped out/partied at. The location was in Snohomish. This area is mainly farmland. They have sprinklers with manuer in them (we jokingly call them shit sprinklers) and huge stretches of fields with vintage barns and homes. Because of the expansive and beautiful landscape and lack of any civilization, a lot of hang gliding, hot air balloon rides, and skydiving is involved. (pictures)
I got sent to San Diego for a time for work. Took several beautiful pictures of the southern beach. (pictures)
That's been my past ~2 months give or take. There's some more projects but there's no pretty pictures to go with it, It's just me excitedly writing paragraphs about learning algos for AIs, my space app I'm working on, some red team tactics, and just programming in general because I'm a nerd. I'm relieved September is here so I don't move for several weeks.
Enjoy the photos guys.
