    Soo … I don’t want to appear demanding, but this was Jan 24. Where’s Jan 25 and Jan 26? And don’t say that they are experiments in minimalism.

    Oh but you are of course being demanding.
    I was laid up in bed on Saturday and Sunday with the horrible flu-like bug that is going around. I believe you may have noticed some people at your work suffering from it ?

This is the view from my seat on the Caltrain 231 north-bound as it waits in San Jose. Well the view is actually in colour and more often than not there is a train in front of that view. Today there wasn’t and as I had plenty of time before the train left I ran over to platform 5 and took this shot. And sure enough a few minutes later a train pulled in and obscured the view.

I particularly like the shape the space between the buildings makes. I think that is called “negative space” although not being trained in proper art and terms I could well be misusing the term.

Sorry about missing Saturday and Sunday. Been rather ill. But feeling a lot better now. Good enough to hit the swimming pool tonight, It was rather busy when I got there and I had to use what I refer to as “the big boy swim lanes”. It’s where the more proficient swimmers hang out and the water temperature is 2C below the back lanes. And boy can I tell the difference !
