Just a man and his tacos. And their adventures together.

Welcome to Jon's Blog. If you are looking for the dorky kid from Stevensville, the pizza guy from Missoula/Bozeman, the drunk asshole from Irvine, the code monkey in San Diego, Orophino from WoW, y6y6y6 from MetaFilter, MacAlpine from the SCA, or the fat bald guy with a camera you ran across somewhere.... That's me. Back to blogging. Funny how things come full circle.

This page was created in the late 90s during the blogging era. Before Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc even existed. It's gone through many incarnations over the decades. But I'm relaunching it fresh in 2019. It's my chance to stand in the town square and talk to the world.

Jon Sullivan is a 56+ year old programmer living in San Diego. He plays too many video games. And is said to be an excellent cook. Also, he takes photos.

1) Belgium beer tour for next year is a go. 2) A solution to the short session/ login problem is proving rather hard. Might need a new hosting solution. Not this month. So for now you'll need to relogin to post comments.

My Camera Gear

The Sony a7r iii is so awesome I've completely switched over from Canon. Highly recommended. Using with mostly Sony GM lenses. All photos here since 2108 were taken with it. Have had zero issues with it.

LEOFOTO LH-40 40mm. I've used plenty of cheaper ballheads and always hated them. This one is a joy though. I love the control it has even when using a huge lens. Worth the extra $ in my opinion.

G-raphy DSLR Backpack. Never heard of the brand before I bought this bag, but it's been very reliable. I use the bottom quick entry all the time. Also fits well in overhead lugggage. Which is great.
