Sausalito Night

Had the most amazing night on top of a friend's houseboat in Sausalito watching the meteor shower. We saw at least 40 shooting stars, and the milky way was in clear view. Oh the things you see when you leave the New York City sky (lucky to see 3 stars?).....

Beach Birthday

We went to this beach outside of San Fran in the Marin Headlands for April's birthday. It was a steep mile hike down, and the beach had this dark sand and it was perfect for drinking wine and sunbathing.

Badlands to Little Beirut

These are photos from our drive from Milwaukee to Portland. I meant to do these before the last entry, so it would be in chronological order, but I am sure you will forgive me for being scatterbrained as usual. We saw some amazing country. Especially the Badlands and the mountains of Wyoming. Hey, we even went to the corn palace....major letdown, I was expecting something hokey, but it was just lame (photo second from the bottom) it was a brick building with corn stuck on! Anyways...Portland was a really awesome city, which I plan on revisiting. Very down with the local/organic food movement (dionystically at delicious cart food), the people were chill, and there was good art. The people we stayed with had the most amazing chickens (above) and lovely home. Rachel had an incredible solo art show at Breeze Block Gallery. Then we headed down to the Bay Area, more pics on that to come.....

San Francisco to Monterey

While visiting my friend April in the bay area, we drove down to Monterey and shot along the coast. The fog set the mood for the day and created the most mysterious, luminous night.

Milwaukee Midwest Magic

I headed out to Milwaukee for some good times Midwest style. Traveling with my friends Rachel and Jesse, we ate delicious food from the garden, thrift stored it up, and ran wild in parks. Then we headed across the country westbound....


Earlier this summer, post Texas, I headed out to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was beautiful and I learned to hang glide. Can't complain about delicious seafood either.

Lone Star State

Lone Star State II

Earlier this summer I took a trip down to Texas. I had never been there and I actually loved it. I was surprised at how much of a cool place it was. I was mostly in Houston with my friends Galina and Hank, who showed me a great time. Cheap, good TexMex and cheap beers, and chill bars. I also got to ride around on scooters or in a jeep with the top down, so I had the wind in my hair and a smile on my face. Galina's awesome new studio (1st pic) will be part of FotoFest 2010 if you are down there. We ate a lot of amazing BBQ, as Hank informed me, because he is a native Texan, BBQ is his religion. Hank and I visited a bat colony which is right in Houston, and it was incredible. Hundreds of thousands of bats fly out at dusk. We stood under the bridge they nest in and they flew all around us, never touching us. I also visited a friend in Austin, who is holding Puddle the Duck and one of Puddle's owners is the photo seen above.
