It’s that time again – time for “something a little different”! Inspired by one of my favorite stories, Rashomon, I solicit the thoughts and opinions of others who have tread the same path as me, but (inevitably) they bring a different perspective. End result: you get twice the story. This was a fun one –Continue reading “Rashomon Series: My Sister and Me in Tanque Verde (AZ)”

Unnecessary Steps (Rome, Italy)
We wandered through so many random churches with so many sculpted ceilings, I’m not even going to try to remember where this was taken. I became minorly obsessed with taking shots of these moldings that descend down from the ceiling art, like a needless staircase. Plus a bit of asymmetrical symmetry, because my photography goesContinue reading “Unnecessary Steps (Rome, Italy)”
Travel, Sleep, Repeat
I understand why we sleep. To slip the knot of the world. Rachel Kadish, The Weight Of Ink I’ve had several conversations at work today about what a difference taking the last week off makes, and what a double-difference it makes when it’s coupled with the thrill of other people in the company taking thisContinue reading “Travel, Sleep, Repeat”

If you punch it a second time, the light changes to a soft glow that cycles through 5-6 different colors. Punch it a third time, and the light turns backContinue reading “A Very Un-Squishy Christmas”
Weird Sites in Rome, Take Three
Sometimes you gotta shoot the “wrong thing”. The only source of light into the Pantheon comes from the center (the oculus). Said oculus is a popular shot, tourists angling their lenses up to the ceiling to capture it and the surrounding dome walls, which are eye-catching swirls of squares. My traveling companion used it asContinue reading “Weird Sites in Rome, Take Three”
What Neil Said
Theatre, writing, and travel are my sports. And like any athlete, amateur hobbyist or consummate professional, it’s important to train during the off-season. Which has pretty much been all year, as far as theatre and travel go. Writing, on the other hand? Writing is there for me, always. It’s the hobby that never sleeps. EvenContinue reading “What Neil Said”
Christmas Eve Shenanigans
One of my favorite moments of last year’s Christmas Eve wrapping frenzy. My younger kitty was convinced that every gift was for her. Oh, and that the gifts were actually the packaging. From that perspective, I suppose she was right. Shot on Google Pixel 3, black and white filter.
The Wisdom of Cats
I’ve commenced another one of my lunchtime polls in my chats with friends and loved ones, which happens once in awhile when I’ve grown weary of small talk, and am craving conversation that is a little deeper under the surface than “what are you having for dinner tonight.” In the past I’ve gone with theContinue reading “The Wisdom of Cats”
Weird Sites in Rome, Take Two
One of these things is not like the others. And I adore him for it. Shot on iPhone 8.
