Pics from Hawaii

Right after Spain, I flew across 12 time zones to Hawaii. Here's a few random pics.

Looking towards the caldera at Kilauea.

A lovely little fiddle head in Volcanoes National Park.

We rented a plane and flew out to see where the lava reaches the ocean.

Yes, I still remember how to fly!

Pics from Spain

A few pics from Spain...

Inside of Casa Batllo. The inside had been closed off when I lived there so that was a pleasant surprise. Bruce, just look at that staircase!

This is a scale model of the attic of La Pedrera. Each of the slats is in reality a ~14ft brick catenary arch. It's stunning inside.

Roman aqueduct still standing in Segovia.

This is a model of the roof of the school house built next to Segrada Familia. It was from this roof line that I was inspired to make my porch roof.

Oh my god, the face on mars has moved into the light fixtures at the Reina Sophia! :-)


Today I built another gate for the backyard. I don't think I could have designed a much more labor-intensive gate design; it took me about 5 hours to mill all the 2x2s. Next, trim the edges and hang it.
