What do you do when you have non-functioning urinals and an event scheduled? Put flowers in them and call it art. I think this was a brilliant solution of an interesting problem.
Every now and then I come across something I have never seen before when photographing an event. I really like when people are able to take an regular event and add something that makes it memorable. I was doing photographs for a client at a celebration for a non-profit that runs hospitals and schools in […]
The title for this post is not some profound thing I came up with to riff on, it is the title of an album by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists when I was trying to think of what this post will be about a song from that album, Dial Up, began playing on my computer. […]

When my daughter was in 8th grade or so, she had a physics assignment and chose a pinhole camera […]
Leif and a few fellow students had to make something for their physics final project. I can not really say how they came up with the idea to make an electric guitar, but I do know it was mostly Leif’s idea. When I first heard of his idea to make an electric guitar I thought […]
I was driving home from a non-photo related meeting and almost crashed into the car in front of me when I saw a zebra crossing guard like the ones they have in La Paz Bolivia, which I first heard about from the Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I had to quickly find a place […]
