Jonathan's graduation and a summer update

June 24th, 2007

Jonathan in his cap and gown

Let me start off by saying I just posted the photos from my cousin's high school graduation this past weekend. The photos include the after events where we took some group photos and ate some tasty steamed crabs. In other news…I have been working at NASA's Langley Research Center for the past few weeks. My job involves both photography and web programming, so it has been a very good fit for my interests so far. It has been very interesting seeing NASA from the inside and learning the ins and outs of this deceptively large government organization. Stay tuned, and I may post some more details of my experiences soon…though I have to be careful of United States export laws and other government concerns.

Weekend trip to West Virginia

May 30th, 2007

The Bailey House

As I mentioned in my last couple posts, I was in Princeton, West Virginia this past weekend. I had the opportunity to photograph my great aunt and uncle's house and property as well as the house once inhabited by my grandfather, great grandmother, and great-great aunt. I just uploaded them all to four galleries of photos from West Virginia. The photos turned out quite well, and I am looking forward to making some hard copies to send off to the family. Also, take note that I snapped a couple photos of my new car (the blue Pontiac Vibe you'll see in the first gallery). Enjoy the photos, and let me know how you like them.

Spring memories

May 29th, 2007

Jim playing Kan-Jam

I'm finally back home in Virginia, and I just posted a gallery of miscellaneous photos from RIT during this past spring quarter. The photos include people sliding in the mud after a rainy spring day, playing Kan-Jam outside Baker, getting food from The Commons, experimenting with a cheap airplane from Sol's, and discovering the illuminating properties of lava lamps. I am really looking forward to editing the photos I took in West Virginia. Some turned out quite well, so there's something to look forward to!

Even more bird photos

May 21st, 2007

Just when you thought you might be done viewing the latest of Eric Kerby's photos, I upload more! I have uploaded two more galleries of photos…the last two that relate to my Ornithology class. The first set of photos was shot on the morning of April 28th at the RIT Bird Observatory. RITBO is a bird banding station on RIT's campus. The other set of photos contains three days worth of images from the class's trip to Pt. Pelee National Park in Canada on the northern shore of Lake Erie. We had a great time watching migratory birds refuel in the critical habitat provided by the Pt. Pelee land. Be sure to browse through all the photos. I'm actually quite pleased with the way many turned out.

In other news…I sprained my ankle playing ultimate Frisbee this weekend. If a chipped tooth doesn't count, that's my first real sports injury! It's healing up quite well, so there's no need to worry.

Bird photos

May 19th, 2007

Since my last post, I have uploaded two more photo galleries to Both are related to the Ornithology class I took this quarter at RIT. The first one is of the Bird of Prey Days at Braddock Bay Park. The other set is from our trip to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Sapsucker Woods in Ithaca. Enjoy the bird photos! Now I need to finish editing all the ones from our trip to Pt. Pelee National Park in Canada.

Lots of photos!

May 13th, 2007

I just posted a large number of photos to the website. I have had a backlog of editing and posting to do, so I decided to catch up this weekend. So far, I have posted the photos from CIAS Honors' DC trip, Baker Hall's mini golf and Wendy's excursion, and the Honors Program's spring picnic. Now I have some family photos as well as photos related to the ornithology class I am taking left to edit. Enjoy the influx of photos, and remind your friends to take a look, too!

Google search traffic

January 14th, 2007

It is always interesting to see how people come across my website. A regular provider of visitors is Google. What has surprised me over the past two years is the regular stream of traffic coming from searches for photos of Fame – The Musical. When you search in Google, the reason is quite obvious: my website consistently ranks in the top 3 results for that search. Don't take my word for it, go to Google and search for fame photos or fame the musical photos. Even in Yahoo, I rank second for fame the musical photos. That just shows that it can pay off to post a wide variety of content online in hopes that you will hit a few niches attract more visitors. By the way, you can always view the original Fame photos.

Home for the Holidays (and Party Photos!)

December 22nd, 2006
xmas party

I'm heading home once again for a two-week holiday break. Christmas and my birthday are just around the corner!! I have an early flight tomorrow morning, so I better get some rest. For those of you who check my website often and are eager for more content, I just posted the photos from this year's Kerby Christmas Party that my mom puts together for her department at work. Enjoy the photos, and be sure to check out the last gallery I posted (Baker Shooting Range) as well.

All is well at

Soda can shot by a Nerf dart

I have been updating more often than usual, a trend I hope to maintain. In that same vein, I just posted a new gallery of photos! Check out the photos of some of my floor mates taking target practice. It is a Baker Shooting Range, Nerf style :). This week is turning out to be quite a busy one as we wrap up some things at RIT before heading off for our winter break (the measly two weeks of it 🙁 ). I can't argue with the weather, though. We've only had two mild snows so far this year and temperatures well above freezing.

Dressing the RIT tiger statue

October 6th, 2006
RIT Tiger statue with a sweater

Finally, a new post and a new photo gallery! It's starting to get nippy here in Rochester. We certainly don't want the RIT tiger to get cold out on the quarter mile at night. Stevie set out to make sure the tiger remains warm in a brand new, custom sweater! Hand-knitted and the perfect size, I'm sure we made the tiger happy by dressing him up tonight. Enjoy the gallery of photos I took of the event. Also, while the sweater lasts, be sure to try out the RIT Eastman Quad webcam. You may have to take control of the camera to center it on the statue.
