One of the few things I actually like about this month are the lights. More specifically, the
lights most people decorate their palm trees.
Driving back from dropping Spring off at work, I saw some
impressive displays; impressive enough to go back and take pictures.
So I find myself parking my car at a shopping center
in northern West Boca at 2:00 am in the morning, digital camera and tripod
in tow as I walk a block towards an exclusive, gated community to photograph
their entrace light show, thoughts of cops dancing in my head;
anything done at 2:00 am can be construed as suspicious these days but the
traffic is very light, which is one of the reasons I picked 2:00 am for this
little outting. I setup directly across the street from the development and
start taking pictures.
Of course, it was at that precise moment that traffic picked up,
cars and trucks wizzing past (as you can see in the picture, which
isn't a bad effect really; I like it).
Obviously, I made it home okay.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
