Birthday at Thee Parkside

Did low-key drinks at a fun bar called Thee Parkside for birthday, always fun to see friends new and old. Experimenting with a new camera, the Sony NEX-7, though these blurry bar photos don’t really do it justice.

SOMAArts show and Om’s place

Sister is in town and went to the Get Lucky: The Culture of Chance show at SOMArts, had some food truck Mexican food, and swung by Om’s place to catch up with some friends. Shot with Charleen’s Canon S100, which is a fun pocket camera that had some pretty decent shots in low-light, especially given its size.
