this month has been pretty busy so i haven't been blogging as much as wanted to. we're going to china during "golden week," sort of a spring vacation here in japan. we'll be spending 5 days or so in beijing. expect video of that early may. i'll probably have photos to go along with it. in the meantime i've been playing around with fake HDR photos in iphoto and photoshop. pretty easy to do with nifty results. here are some samples of rocky in his different stages of puppyhood. let me know what you think or if you have any tips. i'm going to try to get better at this later.
