Dane County Farmer's Market

One of the things I like best about living in downtown Madison is the farmer's market. It's very handy to be able to up, walk a few blocks and get stuff for breakfast, and come home and cook it. If you're ever in town, I highly recommend dropping by! They have all kinds of things there including a multitude of Wisconsin cheese :-).

Cycling in Madison

Now that I have this fancy blog, I might as well use it :-).

For my birthday I was given a fancy bike computer (Garmin Edge 705, if you're interested). I take it on all of my rides, and record them. I publish the results on runsaturday.com, which is a pretty cool page for managing things like this. If you're interested in fitness at all, this site has a plethora of tools which will automatically analyze your fitness for you. It's very interesting!

Panoramic off of the capitol

This weekend I went up to the observatory deck on the capitol, which was the first time I'd ever done that. I shot a panoramic with the camera on my phone. It's not a great camera, but the results turned out pretty well for a camera phone. If you're interested you can check out the original and a cropped version (warning: these images are huge -- around 25 MB -- and will probably take a while to load). Enjoy!

Oh, and the software I used to stitch together the photos was hugin. Not exactly an intuitive interface, but it works pretty well, and it has more buttons and whistles than I could ever want. If you know something about photo stitching that I don't (which is highly likely), I'm happy to furnish the originals for a better attempt.
