They Made Me An Offer I Couldn't Refuse

It's funny how things go. One minute you're living on board a replica of a 15th century sailing vessel, the next minute you're sitting in an office tower in Silicon Valley. Sometimes these things just happen.

Adobe Systems headquarters, San Jose, CA.

Among the projects which I have worked on professionally, Adobe Lightroom is the one I am most proud of. So, when I got a call saying that they could use a hand for a few months, I jumped at the chance to be a part of the Lightroom team again.

But what about the travel? Well, it's only a six month contract, so I imagine it won't be too long before I'm on the road again. On the other hand, my last six month contract with Adobe lasted 14 months, so you never can tell. As far as the blog goes, it just means another slight shift in the ratio of camera nerdery to travel talk.

And so, nine months later, I find myself back in the Bay area, a place still new enough to me that being here feels almost like travel. Now let's see, where was I?
