Boost!, originally uploaded by hermanau. Trying a slightly different approach today attempting to actually take this shot during the day. I figure I need about 1″ shutter speed to capture enough sense of motion, OR I’ll have to travel so damn fast that I might get myself killed. FYI I ended up going for the […]

Yep, it’s dead. Sportsmanship has probably been dead for a long time in this country. It has become very obvious when the penalties were announced for Robert Horry of the San Antonio Spurs, Amare Stoudamire and Boris Diaw after game 4 of the NBA Western Conference Semi-Finals. I’ve always been a believer that sports is […]

Subaru Impreza WRX, originally uploaded by hermanau. rmed with the proper tools, I went back to my favorite HDR location last night hopefully to get a little inspiration. Knowing the right spots this time, I got lazy and stopped exploring and started exploiting my favorite spot with my dirty car. It took me a while […]

What do you know… the Spurs just keep living up to the “dirty team” name Amare called them. Robert “Big Shot” Horry landed a cheap shot on Steve Nash last night in game 4. Robert, word of advice for you here: “learn better from master Bowen”. At least the dirtiest player in the NBA Bruce […]

OMG OMG OMG… Game 3 2nd round playoffs Golden State Warriors against Utah Jazz. I think this guy Baron Davis is turning everybody who watches his play into his fans. BARON! BARON! BARON! BARON! BARON!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a youtube video is worth 10,000,000 words. Bruce Bowen is known to be a tough defender, and also a dirty player to some. You be the judge… and be sure to check out the other Bowen videos when u’re done with this one.

Apple rolled out a few new commercials and I love this the most. As a PC guy, I really hate the new different versions of Vista to death. It’s just way beyond software and OS, and simply a stupid shallow crooked marketing move. Kudos Apple, haha! :)

I’m sure I’m not the first one to blog this, but this keyboard “mod” is way beyond crazy… It reminds me of all those Sherlock Homles games I played… If computers were invented back in those days, I’m sure this is how the keyboard would have looked like. :) If not mistaken, the original modder […]

All I can is WOW… BMW is seriously redefining the art of consumer level automotive design. I don’t entirely love every part of the car, but just try to get a pencil and trace the lines of the car and see how much work and attention to details they put into their craftsmanship and design […]

Tonight, Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, Jason Richardson, and the entire Golden State Warriors (42-40) led by Don Nelson made history by defeating the #1 seed Dallas Mavericks (67-15) in the first round in game 6 winning the series 4-2. This is first time a #8 seed beating a #1 seed ever since the NBA changed […]

General Motors Corp.’s first-quarter profit fell 90 percent compared with a year ago, citing losses in the home lending operations of its former financial arm. It was the second consecutive quarterly profit for the nation’s largest automaker, which said in Thursday’s report it had record vehicle sales worldwide and improvements in its automotive operations in […]

I picked up a Nikon D70 a while ago from Patrick through a friend of mine at a discounted price (thanks Patrick!). I’ve been using it for a little while now and I feel comfortable enough to start writing about the differences. I’m sure you’ll find a lot of articles comparing the specs on the […]

Strawberry Drop, originally uploaded by hermanau. My first attempt to this type of shot. This is far from perfect, and I honestly don’t have the setup exactly the way I wanted. Hopefully next time I’ll get my hands on a tank instead of having to use the vase and deal with the annoying reflection. This […]
