Everyone needs a little R&R. Even Photographers and especially Architects.
My hands have been itching to get off the keyboard and into some paint lately. Last night, I couldn’t hold them back any longer! I think I like the paintbrush better than the painting, but it felt so good to push some color around. Some news along these lines, a darkroom is currently under construction […]
It’s a gray day here in Seattle (surprise!) and I needed something tropical. So, I dug up the pics from our trip to Curaçao, the land of turquoise waters and tiny (& $$$$$) beers, last spring and have been gazing at each one with big sighs in between.
I haven’t had spare time for much lately, especially for posting images from my personal collection/travels and helping out my favorite non-profit, Ameriface.

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to get a nice hunk of down time out on the coast with some of my closest peops. I mean, serious down time. What I didn’t do was look at a computer. My cell phone didn’t even have service **GASP**. What we did do was eat amazing […]
