My Sunday in Five photos…

newsweek teach for america article

Started off slow after a shoot with Cindy and then when my work was done, I biked over to Dolores Park where I caught up on some reading – this was a good article in Newsweek about Teach for America.

Later on a guy on a bike rode by in his Threadless T-shirt and Rickrolled the park – hilarious!

I was drinking some Lagunitas and noticed a bee which was nice since I keep hearing about the collapse of bees…

Of course during my time in the park, I couldn’t resist twittering and saw that a few friends were in the park too but it was so crowded it wasn’t worth trying to find anyone…


So afterwards I went over to Elbo Room for a drink and to use their bathroom which of course had no line!
