Sorry about the site being down for those who noticed. It appears to be MOSTLY working now, but comments are still having problems. Keep trying and they’ll be working soon, I hope. (UPDATE: Comments are working now. If you have any trouble on the site please click the “about” link above and send me an email.)
Once again, nominations for the [2007 Photobloggies](http://2007.photobloggies.org/) are open. Please drop by and nominate your favorite photo blogs.
Those who have been in Japan (or followed this blog) probably recognize this contraption. It’s a very long slide that runs from the top of a hill all the way to the bottom (about 100 meters). They’re pretty fun. It’s good to have some cardboard to sit on, because as you go faster the friction (heat) and vibration can be quite intense.
