The Grounds Behind Her Eyes

“What would it take to gain acceptance, to the grounds behind your eyes.” — Conor Oberst “Artifact #1″ Over the past decade, I’ve been able to easily hashtag her as #happy, #sad, #angry, #tired, #exuberant, and so on. She was the USA Today. A swift, easy read. Colorful and pleasant. […]

The Fairmont Orchid Hawaii — Big Luxury on the Big Island

For those, like us, who’d never been to the Big Island of Hawaii before and who, like us, had a very specific and extremely idyllic flowery vision of what Hawaii would look like upon arrival, the drive from Kona’s outdoor airport to The Fairmount Orchid can be more than a […]

Going Down The Music Rabbit Hole In The West

A new indie kid’s song popped up into my inbox late last night. It was from an artist I’d covered once or twice in the past but despite my familiarity, didn’t have the highest of hopes for, which makes what would happen next even more surprising. A negative bias will […]

The Youth of Today in Detroit

I asked for disenfranchised and I got it, in spades. Despite this one obviously staged photograph, I do not, as a rule, try to make photos in this way. But there was just something exhilarating about this dilapidated wall of outdoor public art in the Corktown neighborhood of Detroit, the […]

Free Hugs Bear Hug

Thinker Toys in Carmel-by-the-sea, a coastal Northern Californian town every bit as precious as its overly-hyphenated-name would lead you to believe, has a massive stuffed bear doling out free hugs to any and all who enter, to those of any age who find themselves in need of a bit of […]

The Ballad of a 7 Year Old Tinkerer

Are the pieces of the highlighter yellow LEGO CD clock radio now in a box beneath the invention table that’s seen less action that a church confessional in a red light district? Yes. But that matters not because the 7 year old tinkerer spent that one week, some weeks ago, […]

Portrait Photography in Palo Alto: She’s Got Style for Miles

With her, there are few rules. One pigtail? Makes sense to her. Off-balanced cuffed pants like daddy? Oh yeah. Purple and grey striped socks with rainbow striped slip-on sneakers? Why not.

The Aria Resort and Casino — Luxury and Style on the Las Vegas Strip

I’d never visited Las Vegas before the summer of 2013, so I don’t know personally of the Strips’ glory days, neither the beloved Rat Pack era (of course) or the decades that followed, when themed casinos dominated Las Vegas Boulevard. There are remnants of that latter period on view today, […]

Two Girls On The Forest Moon of Endor

A year ago, this would have made no sense to them, and, frankly to me as well. It had been decades, after all. And so I too hadn’t the foggiest of ideas as to what the Forest Moon of Endor was or meant. But there we were, last month, hiking […]
