Do you have a higher resolution file? No. The largest size available here on Flickr is the highest resolution file that I have.


Don't believe the "Taken on..." date for any photo of mine that doesn't also list the camera make; editing overwrote the EXIF on those photos. I often upload photos taken months ago.


Alarmingly well-read, clean cut, disarmingly insouciant, colorblind, and idealistic to a fault. I've piloted countless conveyances: kayak, pogo, segway, unicycle, and most thrillingly, a wheelchair skitching off a bicycle during a downpour, but never a car. Regardless of mode, I brake for pedestrians and pastry shops.
