who could ask for more?

My first year of grad school is ending and I can't even fathom how I would have survived it without Jon's constant support and love. He is truly an amazing partner.

This is my studio flat file/coffee table (thank you Jon!). I actually printed all of my photos, numbered them, and put them in booklets so I could see what the heck I've been doing. It's turning out to be very helpful!

ugly pictures?

So it has been suggested that perhaps I should take some ugly pictures to break the habit of taking beautiful pictures. In taking these I realized that ugly is as subjective as beauty, and that my idea of an ugly picture is a picture without intention.

bowie meets god

Bowie wasn't quite sure how to take the ocean. She barked at some driftwood for awhile and mostly stayed away from the water. Jon's explanation is best: "Now she knows how small she is."

waiting in the car

After Bowie's dog training lesson we usually stop and get some horribly greasy and delicious take-out. This is me, taking pictures while Jon gets the food.

Spring turns me into the Kenny G of photography. Pure sap.

Simcha's new car

Not really, but wouldn't it be great? My niece is 16 and the coolest young woman around. She needs a cool car too.

flower gossip

In my imagination, these two buds are whispering about the one in the foreground...

who is pretending not to hear.
