Sound Transit has doubled travel times this weekend because they aren't even running half of their service. Naturally they're still doing fare enforcement. Garbage.
Ever since seeing an iron beam stamped with "British Steel" in the York Minster crypt all I can think about is Nigel. I wonder if he's doing okay and the plans we made for him worked out.
I've owned a SLR for 14 years now and today I finally figured out that you can use the AF points in the viewfinder to straighten images out when composing. 😬
I've been writing at my blog for 15 years now at nykida.net . There's no particular theme. I usually write about space, travel, and culture.
I picked up taking pictures in High School. My favorite genres are infrastructure, cities, nature, and wildlife. Shooting with a Pixel 3 and Canon 6D. All of my work is available free of charge with a Creative Commons license.
I started traveling on my own during college and haven't stopped since. I've visited Italy, France, Germany, Austria, United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Hungary, Poland, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Switzerland, Spain, Belgium, Belize, Mexico, Canada, and Honduras.
I work as a full stack web developer at a European travel company. Currently specializing in the Ruby on Rails framework and data integration with a particular interest in shaping customer experiences.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from University of Washington in Seattle, and majored in Law, Societies, and Justice with minors in Political Science and Human Rights.
I live with a cat named Minerva. Her primary skills are cuddling and hissing at everyone not named "Nikky." She's not particularly great at hunting the bugs around my apartment and usually spends her days chirping at the crows that perch outside my windows.
Seattle has been homefor the past 13 years. Much as changed over the years, but the water and mountains remain constants. Being a Washington native, I don't mind the grey skies and rainy seasons.
