A Few Photos

I plan to get a book review up sometime this week, but I have other obligations. I’m revising a story for an editor who wants to publish it; I’m expecting edits on another story due to come out in April; I have to do my taxes. ┬áHere are a few photos to tide you over.

(For the record, “having” to do edits for a real-live editor is one of the best tasks I could ever have. I’m not complaining.)

A pair of osprey made their nest at the top of one of the large ship cranes at Mare Island.

I’ve never seen a ship actually at the docks at Mare Island before. On this day there were two, but this one was the more impressive.

A couple of random images:

These ship cranes will play an important role in the dazzling, suspenseful, explosive climax of my current fiction project… as soon as I figure out what that dazzling, suspenseful climax is.

Part of the reason I like steampunk is because, like most three-year-olds, I’m seduced by cool shapes.
