Early morning delivery on 9th Street.
This isn’t really part of The Photo Elective series in that it wasn’t part of that elective course that all illustration majors at The Philadelphia College of Art were required to take, but I did use the same SLR camera and it was part of a school assignment. Rather than rely on the paltry image selection in the school’s library, it was easier to load film into a camera and take reference photos oneself. That’s what I did here although I don’t recall the illustration assignment at all, but I am glad I took the shot because the theater has long since closed.
This cake is similar to the raspberry ricotta cake I made recently – except that it has blueberries and orange zest. Adding a little orange zest to the cake batter adds a marvelous flavor to the cake, which is a perfect addition to cook outs – no icing to worry about! Continue reading

Last year was a bad one for peaches in these parts, something about a rainy spring. In an attempt to make up for lost time, I made this pie for my friend Dan Love – world traveler, photographer extraordinaire, baseball fan. Happy birthday Dan, hope you had a swell day! Continue reading
With the addition of 16GB of RAM (four matched chips of 4GB RAM) my used/new-to-me Mac Pro is ready to go!
This came about as a light summer dinner, a way to use up corn leftover from the weekend, and a “we just got home from the pool and do I really have to make dinner?” Unforch, I do – and this dish takes as much time as it does to cook the pasta. Continue reading
Here’s another of Tina Garceau’s Photo Elective self-portraits that I recently discovered. They were taken as part of a class assignment at The Philadelphia College of Art. Fortunately I found them because I think a stubborn humility would have prevented the author of these photos from doing anything with them. She probably would have looked at them, said, “Oh, yeah — those” and tossed them aside. For me, finding this stash of negatives was like finding gold! They are terrific photographs, and whether she recognized it or not, she was a great subject!
