Rock Against Alziemer’s 2011: Not to be forgotten

In what will live on as one of the most memorable shows of the year, Rock Against Alziemer’s raised an unforgettable amount of money and awareness around a disease that affects many loved ones. And they did it by lining up the best show I’d seen all year. Here’s a few of my favorites from…




Caught on Macro: Watching a Spider Kill a Wasp

The highlight of my trip to Estacada today was playing with my make-shift macro lens in an attempt to photograph a bee or a wasp, only to catch it getting caught for brunch by a peculiar spider. (I sometimes take off my lens, turn it around and hold it against the camera body with my…




“Put a Bird on It” – visitors to Kaua’i

On my recent trip to Kaua’i, I spotted more birds than several of my visits to Maui. This could be due to the large number of roaming Red Junglefowl, or that once I started looking, I couldn’t stop. Of all the birds I did notice, it seems a majority were brought here over the past…




bridge to brews 2011

Not only did I run my best race pace yet for an 8k, I stopped to take photos along the way. Maybe next time I’ll break a 9 minute mile and leave the shooting for shots of whiskey.




Ride By: pt 2

A trio from a ride to Kennedy School one fine Saturday. As the sun began to set, I found myself wanting to peer inside windows and catch glimpses of people settling in next to lamps and fire lights. Instead, I realized I forgot my own bike lights and did my best to pedal on. I’d…




Ride by Shooting: Take 1

Instead, I focused on architecture or waited until I was comfortably seated behind a book…

drive by shooting

A one day photo project: browse Portland by car. It’s easy to get caught up in traffic when sitting behind a steering wheel, so I decided to take a deeper look at what I’m not seeing when I keep my eyes on the bumper in front of me. Here’s a few of my immediate faves…




San Fransisco in Pictures

Been a while since you’ve visited the city or never been? Check out some cool scenery and take a walk down impressive Mural Alley. And while you’re there, help me figure out some intriguing found plants. San Fransisco (and Outside Lands Festival) in Pictures.




Bury My Heart in San Francisco

No time to explain. The last time I sat down to blog I spilled coffee and killed my laptop. At the time, I had visions of expanding to music and technology and had some witty commentary on the gmail and at&t outtage. Now I sit across from Melissa in a secret garden, preparing to walk…
