2008 Run For The Hungry

Posted by JSA Nov 29, 2007

On Thanksgiving Day, for the second year in a row, 20+ members of my family participated in San Diego's Run For The Hungry 5K/10K Run/Walk. The course started just outside PetCo Park and looped its way through downtown San Diego and the Gaslamp Quarter. Since I ran the 5K, I had my brother (who was walking with my nephew) shoot pictures with my Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 and carry the GPS unit around the course.


Here's a screenshot of a map from Sony's GPS Image Tracker software showing the course area with a couple of race photographs plotted directly on it:



And here are a few snapshots from the race itself:















As you can see, there were several thousand runners, walkers, trotters, strollers and meanderers filling the streets of San Diego on a stunning Thanksgiving Day morning, showing community and togetherness for a great cause!

Balboa Park Scavenger Hunt

Posted by JSA Nov 21, 2007

Traditionally, my extended family spends every Thanksgiving together in San Diego.  This year, as an experiment, a couple of my cousins organized a four-team scavenger hunt all around Balboa Park.  As evidence of completion of the tasks, each team had to take a photo showing them finishing the task in quesion at the various locations.  Here are some of the photos taken by my team (all with my Cybershot DSC-W80):


Silliness at the Nikigator:











Through the looking glass (or is it the fountain?):











What word could we have been spelling?















A lovely time was had by all . . .

A literal snapshot of comings, goings, and doings amidst the flurry of end of the year activities. Travels, actions and thoughts will be detailed, as I road test the Sony GPS-CS1KA Image Tracker around the hemisphere in connection with my digital camera.
