As grand as this doorway is, I have no idea why they placed that little square shaped atrocity up there. Is it a light? A smoke detector? An alarm? A time traveler’s portal? What the frak, Jack? Many of my photos from Rome have this issue. I knew it would be a place where ruinsContinue reading “Weird Sites in Rome, Take Seven”
Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, makes us unfold and expand. Karl A. Menniger I’d be hard-pressed to name a human quality that I find sexier than the ability to haveContinue reading “If You Listen”
Never fear – no androids here! This was early on in our trip, and had the effect of making me skeptical of any restaurant that didn’t make it clear that human beings were involved in the making of our food. I would have gone with touting their killer cappuccinos, personally (and they were absolutely divine).Continue reading “Weird Sites in Rome, Take Six”
These shots were taken within 500 feet of one another. Just goes to show, one person’s art is another person’s graffiti is another person’s art. Shot on iPhone 8.
Ceilings in Roman churches reminded me of those posters your dentist puts up so you have something to look at while they scrape away at your gums. I can totally picture this guy saying, “Look, Ma – no cavities!” Shot on iPhone 8.
It’s that time again – time for “something a little different”!

End result: you get twice the story. This was a fun one –Continue reading “Rashomon Series: My Sister and Me in Tanque Verde (AZ)”
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)”
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”
Experiment in asymmetrical symmetry. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter.
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”
