Show for a Cause, 7/11/09

This was our second year participating in this great charity show for Habitat for Humanity. I was quite happy to see my team, Project One, take home the Best Team Quality award. Our individual members took home awards as well, including trophies in the 2-door, 4-door, and 5-door classes, as well as the award for Best Wheels. Congrats to all of the winners!  A few selected photos: [smugmug url=”http://verdugo.smugmug.com/hack/feed.mg?Type=gallery&Data=8889784_hPhD8&format=rss200″ title=”Show%20for%20a%20Cause%2C%207-11-09″ imagecount=”100″ start=”1″ num=”4″]

Graduation Season

It’s June, and that means it’s Graduation Season. My cousins Mike and Margaret graduated from Seattle University and Seattle Vocational Institute, respectively. I’m very proud of both of them, with Mike graduating Cum Laude in Fine Arts and Humanities double major, and Margaret landing a a solid, well-paying Medical Assistant job well before graduating and the University of Washington Medical Center. Good job, you guys! My D200’s high ISO noise is really starting to show its age in these photos, […]
