Similar to the last one – this house is being torn down less than a block away from our house. I shot this to get a sense of the contrasting textures of the brick and the various wallpapers, but coincidentally it sort of looks like the French flag. I’m not sure what’s to be built in it’s place, but there’s no way that the new building will have wallpaper this fabulous. Continue reading
We’re back again with more fabulous but somewhat damaged frames of film from the early 1980s. The year is 1981 and Tina Garceau is outside of Little Pete’s restaurant trying to fulfill a class credit requirement by snapping photos in Philadelphia for a photography elective class all illustration majors were mandated to take.

In an attempt to add variety to a weekend dinner, I found inspiration from Bon Appetit. A quick dinner that’s easy to throw together and makes use of the sage I’ve been growing in the backyard over the summer. Continue reading

A studio portrait of my father’s five brothers who served in the Army and Navy during World War II. This is truly one of my favorite family photos, my uncles are so young and dashing in their uniforms. My Uncle Walter, the youngest in the group, enlisted at eighteen because he wanted to drive a tank – which he did! Although my father isn’t in the photo, he was wearing a uniform as well.

Dan Love that is. Dan shared these photos he shot of our boy’s Halloween costume. As they were being offloaded to my computer, I thought they would make a pretty nifty animation, and that’s what I did. You can get a sense of the Atomic Warrior in all of his electroluminescent glory!

It’s that time of the year again – I’m test driving dessert recipes for Thanksgiving. This cake is easy to throw together, and is studded with big chunks of apples. The only way to improve it, would be to toss a handful of cranberries in the mix! Continue reading
Now that mornings are dark, and cold and it’s tough to get out of bed – there’s nothing like a muffin with oats, pears, and chocolate chips to ease the transition. Continue reading

I saw an unusual sight that not everyone sees in the brick and mortar urban environment of the City of Philadelphia. In a tree on my block, which is the farthest thing I can imagine from a Marlin Perkins nature special, I saw a raptor with it’s catch of the day. A hawk was dining on a pigeon on a block of brick rowhomes. One more photo behind the cut. Continue reading
