I was recently in Key West, Florida for the AISTATS
2003 (Artificial Intelligence and Statistics) conference,
and enjoyed many of the academic presentations. However,
lectures make for boring pictures. Therefore this page is
dedicated to the sights of Key West.
The weather in Key West was very pleasant for early January,
at least from a northener's perspective. I came to
this southernmost US city
from the northernmost US city, Bellingham, Washington.
I found the sixty-five degree weather to be quite pleasant,
though the natives apparently
disagreed as testified by the sign pictured at right.
Since Jeanie was simultaneously suffering semi-severe
snow storms in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I had to fight
my guilt in order to wear shorts (I'm happy to report
I successfully overcame my guilt ;-).
A Few Of My Key West Photos
Below are some thumbnails from my Key West picture collection. Click on
the small pictures to see a larger, clearer image. If you don't
see any pictures below yet, they should arrive within a minute.
If they don't, you should probably try again some other time.
Once you've clicked on a picture, retrieving the larger version
may take a few minutes. Click on "S", "M", or "L" to change your
default picture viewing size; S is 640x480, M is 800x600, and L is
full size (varies). Click on "slideshow" to automatically
transition from one image to the next with a 5 second interval.
Once started, clicking any link will stop the slideshow.
All pictures on this page are taken by, and copyright of Paul
and Jeanie Komarek. If you would like to use any of these pictures,
send me an email and a
link to the page(s) where they'll be used -- I can't imagine
why I wouldn't allow you to use them, but I want to keep track
of them. Probably nobody wants to use my pictures anyway, but
now I'm just rambling.
