  • I photographed and took video of a blind alpheid shrimp (and partner shrimp goby) from 1mm away yesterday. Footage is good!! #
  • Fresh water! For washing up! It has been 2 weeks. #
  • Wrangling divers to get everyone to a restaurant. It is harder than it should be! #
  • My sacrificial Heidi is doing her job! Not many mosquito bites tonight. :) #
  • Overnight in Sorong, flight to Makassar, flight to Bali, overnight, then flight to Singapore and SFO. Long couple of days coming up... #
  • Misool Eco Resort held our hands all the way to the departure gate! Too bad our plane hasn't arrived yet... #
  • Went down the luggage belt of Lion Air baggage handling at Makassar airport to find 6 mistagged bags. Indonesia travel is fun! Whee! #
  • Shampoo: 1; Gigantic Cockroach: 0 #
  • @uwfotog oh, in Indonesia. Never seen a cockroach in my place in SF. :) #
  • Super easy check-in and boarding on SQ in Bali. So grateful for Star Alliance Gold and 3-bag international (USA) baggage allowance. #
  • I knew this trip was going too smoothly. Gigantic woman next to me on long haul, sealing me into my window seat, and baby directly in front. #
  • In Hong Kong. Is it bad that I now associate a Hong Kong accent with Russell Peters? :) #
  • @gilesshaxted appreciating race humor and being "slightly racist" are different. Plus, there us, unfortunately, a double standard... #
  • @gilesshaxted I don't remember who put me onto Russell Peters; it may be that I didn't know you were quoting someone! #
  • I came back from 30 days in Indonesia with 355 GB of media (I actively cull imagery while in the field). Not bad! #
  • An article featuring images from Raja Ampat by Douglas Seifert: #
  • "While you were gone, I learned grep!" -Pam #
  • Downgraded to Skype 2.8 for Mac. Hated the new beta interface. #
  • Hmmm. Compressor doesn't deal with audio on muxed MPEG2 streams in VOB files. Lame. #
