Today's my birthday, and NASA sent me a Space Shuttle! Jealous?
It was a really fun shared experience today, both online and in person. I took the day off for various mostly-birthday reasons, and after a delicious breakfast at Milo & Olive my wife and I headed down to the Santa Monica pier to see the shuttle fly in after it's journey around the Bay Area. This photo was actually taken on the 2nd pass. I like how the clouds look, which is largely thanks to post processing. It was still flying around when we got home, and so we were able to watch it land for the last time ever at LAX. It's been a pretty cool birthday.
[last year] still haven't taken a photo with this...
