Limited Range of Motion

Before the surgery to fix my fractured olecranon (translation: broken elbow), I was told that the number one complication would be “limited range of motion”. Of course I had no real appreciation for what that meant until the splint came off yesterday. So I thought it’d be fun to record my progress to track how the range of motion in my elbow evolves.

What a drone sounds like

Heard some unfamiliar sounds outside tonight, so I went to check it out and discovered a drone buzzing up and down our little street. Is this how the future is going to sound?

“Sort Sol” in San Francisco at Sunset

On my walk home tonight I saw these birds flying around in formations that resembled the Danish sort sol, or “black sun”. I felt compelled to pull out my camera and snap a few stills. As it happens, my 21mm lens broke last weekend, so instead I had my 35mm with me, which turned out to be the perfect focal length, capturing the whole flock without feeling too wide or too tight.
