The Week in Instagram Roundup – San Diego Comic Con

Hey kids, here’s the second experimental installment of my Instagram Roundup – this time covering Comic Con, and spanning from July 16 to July 23rd. I had only three days back at the house between returning from Portland and leaving for a work trip to SDCC, and I know I must have been tired, because…

Spinster Records and Seoul Kitchen, Oak Cliff, Dallas

1. Drive down to the Green Lights of Dallas; drive past them. Over Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and past the new trolley tracks, to Davis Street – 829. Find Spinster Records illuminated on the dark end of the street, past the bars and sidewalks of Bishop Arts. 2. Walk through the open door. 3. Wander…

Japan’s Fox Village – How to Get There, What to Expect

Imagine waking up in the city of the future, boarding a train.. imagine flying like a bullet through clouds of mist that finally break to reveal mountains above green fields, all the while opening small beautiful packages and eating the mysterious foods within.. imagine arriving in a small train station, unsure of where to go…

Three Pictures: The Insides of Planes

Somewhat of a follow up to the last Three Pictures – Someday the things that are mundane and awkward to take pictures of will tell us something about history. Look up 1960s photos of people smoking on planes and you will know I’m right.

Three Pictures: The Windows of Planes

If I can access the window, I’m taking a photo out of the window. I don’t care, its still cool that we fly through the air in tin cans.    

Three Pictures: Foxes in Japan

Sometimes, a theme just presents itself. Our Japan trip filled camera rolls with foxes – statues, actual live foxes, and a little origami. Picture 1: Fushimi Inari, near Kyoto, is best known for its orange-red torri gates – there are supposedly 10,000 of them – I didn’t count them, and it seems like no one…

Crypt Creeper – Waverly Cemetery, Sydney, Australia

 On the last day of a press stop in Sydney, a friend and I woke up early to do the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk in a mad rush before our flight home. I wasn’t confident it would be a must-do; I’d seen oceans before, but the drama of cliffs jutting out of beaches, the…

My (Working) E3 Survival Kit – What to Pack and Bonus What to Wear

Remember when Forbes raised eyebrows with this article about what to wear to E3? This isn’t that article. Or remember this odd one from Kotaku that encouraged pencils and starting a blog with the goal of getting to E3?  This is not that one either! This is just my notes-to-self on what I’ve brought that…

Every Hotel Room

About a year ago, I realized that work travel was going to become a part of life for me. While it was all still new and exciting, I decided to take a photo of myself every night I was in a hotel room, for a year. I didn’t necessarily have a strong direction at the…

Anyplace Glamorous : Walking in New York, Thai Grill and Sushi

So I admit, New York actually is glamorous. The Anyplace Glamorous category was invented for places that have “found” glamour. Or maybe created. But I’m going to let this one through for some reason, just a walk in the dark that wouldn’t make it to the front of the queue if I was making real…
