    The Last Dregs of +

    When I did the 365 photo a day challenge, I took a ton of photos that didn’t get selected to be the photo of the day. Historically, they have gone under my “+” posts and are just an oddball collection of things I took during the day. As I’m getting close to the end of…

  • Let It Grow – Fresno, CA

    Let It Grow – Fresno, CA

    An acquaintance of mine opened this sweet plant shop during the pandemic, when her previous job got shut down at the beginning of the quarantine. It’s a beautiful bright spot, with enough space for other small business owners to sell their wares. I asked the owner Kelly if I could take some photos of her…

  • Record Store Day – April 2022

    Record Store Day – April 2022

    One of my favorite days of the year is Record Store Day, and this year did not disappoint. After two years of not being able to actually go into a record store for the momentous day, I got to experience it full on with music, food, and vinyl buffs I’ve gotten to know through a…

    Food photography is an incredibly interesting and challenging way of taking photos. It’s something that I aspire to do, but in my practicing of it, I haven’t felt like I’ve caught that something that makes it look great. I think part of it is that I’m not setting up food to take photos like you’d…

    Columbia, CA – Gold Rush Town

    Headed to Sonora and then Columbia, CA in search of large stained glass and a last vacation before my partner in crime started teaching again this Fall. We got to mine for gold, take professional “old timey” photos, hang with a friend who was in town at the same time, and do our first “Escape…

  • The Secret Garden

    The Secret Garden

    Last week I got some R&R with my husband and a couple of friends, in an amazing Air BNB in Guerneville, CA. It’s next to the Russian River and is coastal mountains with a small tourist town. The space we stayed at had a creek that ran right next to the property, so every morning…

  • Fourth Anniversary – Part Two

    Fourth Anniversary – Part Two

    For the second and last day of our anniversary trip, we decided to do a little shopping before lunch, go to the beach, and stop by Casa de Fruta on the way home. Weather was fantastic, so we got to eat outside on the patio for our sushi lunch. We stumbled across this store called…
