My daughter Bright Holly Johnston and I turned a lot of heads the day she dressed like this for a ride across town. The Kawasaki Ninja 250 was ours for about 6 months. We sold it after moving to Tennessee in 2008.
This cameraphone picture is Jay playing at bass at our Korean church in Nashville. The keyboard player is Jee-hee Woo, daughter of one of his neighbors.
My daughter, Bright Holly Johnston, did such a nice job posing next to the weeping love grass. This was at the Atlanta Zoo.
No pictures are allowed inside the Microsoft Conference Center, but I hadn't entered at the time I snapped this for my Korean wife. The upper right Hangul (Korean written language) characters say "Welcome" as do the other languages laser inscribed on the glass. This is where our group from NASA toured the House of the Future (or whatever it was they called it).
I collected turtles when I was growing up. I guess everyone has "an animal" that is their favorite. So at some point I had to ask everyone to stop giving them to me for every occasion. I couldn't help but "collect" this one which is on the road to Tybee Island in Savannah, GA where my grandparents are living at Magnolia Manor.
During my first month or two at Marshall Space Flight Center on NASA's UNITeS contract, I went on jury duty. During my absence someone wrote "what a good citizen" on my whiteboard. I never erased it. I've long suspected it was Sherry Wallace. I miss her.
Scott Lund is a long term web client and family friend. He looks out for the Johnston's. Visit him at lsfus.com; he can help you invest for the future.
Danny Garcia and I nailed this self portrait while standing under a mirrored overhang outside the Hilton in San Francisco. We were representing NASA at an international standards conference in 2008.
In this self portrait, it took my son, Christian Lake Johnston, and I two tries to center ourselves well enough. That's my wife's car's sideview mirror (driver side). In this case, I think the arm extension is important as it demonstrates the difficulty of having pulled off the shot as the two of us hung out in the car while the girls shopped (bleeach!)
At my grandpa's 80th birthday party, he wore an Older then Dirt hat. That's grandma in the background. His name is Peter J. Hudson and hers is Betty Hudson.
I showed up in the office of Danny Garcia at NASA and found my name in a heart on his whiteboard. Pretty cool, I thought.
NASA Technical Standards Program. Jay Johnston at far right. We're holding a certification for having joined an international standards organization.
Will Fitch refuses to let me take his photo for fear I will photoshop him into some goofy scenario. He also refuses to take credit for MVC, the PHP framework I write in that allows for easy Model-View-Controller separation. That's the top of my head as I attempted a sneaky, reverse-no-look photo of him as he stood behind me showing me why my code doesn't work.
Sunday, December 31, 2006, 2:11:11 PM. I'm working as usual on my computer, but my son, Christian Lake Johnston is supposed to be taking a nap. I had received a USB Lava Lamp from my mom for Christmas. It's might have been a little warm, but other than that, I can't say for sure why this soothed the little guy off to dreamland. You can get them on thinkgeek.com if you're having trouble getting your children to sleep (laptop not included).
Well, I have both ears, but it will have to do. Self portraits with a cameraphone usually show the strange angle of the arm; in this case, I really tried to extend properly and reduce the arm-oddity. That's a playground at the Atlanta zoo behind me, and though you can't tell, I'm wearing my blue screen of death (BSOD) t-shirt. If I were a cartoon, this would be my only shirt.
Kelly Carter and Jake Gibson of the Marshall Space Flight Center's UNITeS contract in 2007 on Hawaiian shirt day (well, it was just Friday, but they still both thought of pineapple when they got dressed that day, apparently). Yup, I miss them.
You know, the whole cameraphone thing is great. I've always got it with me. Mostly, though, I'm not trying to catch colors or frame a masterpiece. But when I grab a set of colors like the blue and green here, and the balanced assymetry strikes my eye, it's just fun. And the models enjoy it, too.
The goggle dog rules. And kudos to his owner to make sure he doesn't get his eye put out. Cool, go gettum goggle dog!
Ah, the big red tractor. My wife was so upset, but I insisted on her framing me up in front of the tractor so we pulled over and did the deed. A few seconds into taking the picture, the guy on the porch that we didn't see hollers, 'if ya wan, yuh can take er withya'. Embarrassed, we thanked him and drove off.
This is my favorite shot from Denver, CO. I was there on business while working on the Marshall Space Flight Center's NASA/UNITeS contract in 2007.
A devastatingly fantastic water color hanging at ICGLink. It was painted by Josh Cherry's dad. Josh is one of ICGLink's fantastic designers.
My daughter, Bright Holly Johnston, had not seen a real snow until we moved to Tennessee in 2008. There were several snows, but this one was probably the heaviest (well, heavy for us Southerners).
I worked with Brent Copeland at Marshall Space Flight Center (NASA). We were on the UNITeS contract together. I got a chance to grab this shot as he sat in a meeting one day. I miss him.
My wife is Korean, so my kids are, too. But they still call their grandma 'Harmony', which means grandma. They really do have the best grandma ever.
When I started working at ICGLink, I was just about the only one in the office without a beard. The designers were all involved in a beard competition. Guess which one is me (lol).
These are my girls baking cookies. I love this photo to death: the colors, the girls, the activity, the background, the girls...mmmm, mmm, mm, cookies!
I'll never know why I get so excited when my odometer (or any number) displays something that I find interesting. Here is a really good one, though.
This was Jay's house at 10300 Saint Alban Blvd in Huntsville, AL.
