The above is my picture of the day for July 4, 2012. Here’s an excerpt of the long explanation of this Alcatraz pic — read more at my site.

Acatraz at Sunset — and the funny thing about Comic Sans

I saw that the CERN made the Higgs announcement and its infographic used Comic Sans, of all things. Geeky people got a real kick out of this but I wanted to remind them of this poignant article written by the Comic Sans font himself.

I was over on Treasure Island one evening taking photos when I saw the sun sinking through a lot of moisture in the air. I also saw Alcatraz out in the water, so I jumped in the car to drive around and find a spot where everything lined up together. That was a great night!
