The other day someone who was taking basic photography classes asked me how I knew when a photograph was “done” or “good”. Obviously these are subjective answers, a photograph is done when it is done, it is good if it is good. My answer, paraphrasing myself here: A photograph is done and/or good when I […]
I picked up one of the random books I have around the apartment, opened it to a random page and found a listing of oddly specific job titles in foreign languages. The book “The Meaning of Tango, and Other Extraordinary Words from Around the World” by Adam Jacot de Boinod, is a listing of various […]
Here are some photos of things that I found interesting while in Spain. I wish the shop with the woman holding the spatula was open, I want to by a tortilla from her. Then I want to put all of my mail into a lion’s mouth. For skylights I am hoping to have these star […]
