4×4 Snapshots

Mid-week it warmed up again–a hot, humid type of weather; odd for San Francisco. Wednesday also marked a milestone in marriage quality. City Hall celebrated the dismissal of Prop 8 with a colorfully lit buildings. This weeks mini day-to-day moments seen through 4×4 photos:

One of my favorite Exploratorium experiences is difficult to explain, and impossible to really show in a photograph. It’s an enormous parabolic mirror, originally designed for use in a flight simulator, which somehow creates a 3D space you can walk into, letting you coexist with your reflection. It’s razor sharp and feels eerily like real life — except for the fact that some of what you see is upside-down.

But, do your homework and you’ll be fine. Here are some resources: Tips on eating Korean BBQ for the gluten-free folks as well as Ban Chan dishes one can have that are gluten-free.)
