Small Update

I know it has been a long time sense I have last updated the blog.  I have had a lot that has been going on.  It is nice to finally have one semester at UNL done.  Last weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to watch the Nebraska Volleyball team win the National Championship in Omaha.  It was an amazing sight.  I have some photos that I took of the event and I will hopefully post these tomorrow.

Multi-Me

I ran across the flickr photogroup called Clone Meets Clone and it is a gallery of people that have done multiplicity type of photos. I decided to try one this afternoon and this is what I came up with.

This is fun to do and to make.  Look for more multiplicity shots soon.

Website Status Update

The website has been moved over to the new server. I am still in the process of getting everything to work again. Expect to see some changes in the coming weeks especially with the photoblog. I have also bought a new website and domain name. www.JBMPhoto.com The website is currently very basic but I am working on ideas for a site and logo. I wanted to say thanks to Jeff for all of the help with moving the website. I could not have done it with out you man. His blog is http://blog.wisch.org/

Here is a quick test of a new plug in and a photo from the the Nebraska VS Missouri football game last weekend.

Website Status

Lexus LS 460/460L Local Launch Party

Tonight I went to the Lexus Event for the Launch of the Lexus LS 460 and LS 460L. They had valet parking and they were a bit surprised when a friend and I pulled up in a first generation Mazda RX-7. I was also one of they youngest at the event by at least 15 years. They had lots of food like shrimp, crackers, cheese, a chocolate fountain and an open bar. They had an LS 460L in Obsidian and Alabaster Leather with Medium Brown Trim. The picture of the car below is of the 460L. Outside they had a Smokey Granite Mica with Black Leather and Medium Brown Walnut. It as demonstrating the new amazing self parking feature. It was truly amazing. The salesman pulled up parallel to the front vehicle put the LS in reverse clicked a button on the screen. Approved of where the car will place its self and hit ok. The car then turned the wheel and backed into position. The salesman then put it in drive and pulled up a little and that was it. Amazing.Here is a video from youtube that is demonstrating the parking of the car. (I did not take the video)

The pictures below are not great because there were lots of people around. The LS 460L was stickered at around $79,850.

I also got a goodie bag that had a Swiss chocolate, a Lexus pad of paper and calculator, Lexus Pen, and a very nice brochure with some very nice shots of the car.

The car was very nice. On the short drive around the parking lot it was extremely smooth and quite. I think the head room in the back seat has been reduced. The 19 speaker stereo system was crazy. There were at a minimum 3 speakers on each door. I did not like how the engine bay was covered up completely in plastic. I think the rear of the car looks a lot like a BMW 7 series that has been toned down a lot. I was amazed how small the windows seemed and how tall the body under the windows was. I also thought that the B pillar needed to be chromed and a set of 19’s would look a little better. Over all it’s a good looking car but not incredibly unique.

Photos from London, England and Trooping the Colour (Gallery 2)

Much of the same from the last post but with more photos. This summer in June I went to Europe for summer vacation and one of the places I visited was London, England. I posted the photos from Paris, France earlier. I have had the photos processed for a while now but only recently put them online. This post has some unique photos. My flight left late in the day my last day in London. The timing and location I was staying happened to work very well because of the Trooping the Colour parade. This military parade has come too celebrated the Queen Elizabeth II birthday. It was a very cool experience and I was about 15 feet from the Queen of England.
