Boulder: Evening Storm Clouds

While working part-time in Boulder, I was living a Marriott Residence Inn that was just a short distance away from the Sirna facilities. From my office, I noticed that it was getting dark out with some ominous clouds approaching. I took this sh0t while walking to the Residence Inn.

Nine-Years Ago (08-May-2008) — Colorado

One of the things I got to do while working part-time in Boulder was to take the SIRNA group to a Major League Baseball game at Coors field. This would be our second, but last time prior to the site being shut down. I had a lot of fun taking pictures, both of the ball game and the folks I had been working with in Boulder. We took a bus from the Boulder site to the ball game, then had a great afternoon. Norm’s hotdog looks to be more than a foot long.

Gone to See California — SIRNA Goodby.

While in the San Francisco area I had the opportunity to visit and have dinner with a couple of  former colleagues that now live in the Bay Area. In the back yard one of their Yucca plant was blooming. There was a humming bird working the flowers. I never got a picture of the humming bird in the flowers, but did capture a sillouete of it in the some other trees. These images were all taken with a Leica X1 or D-Lux 5 camera.
