Through the looking glass

There is an issue with uploading to Flickr right now, so I thought I’d update my own site for once with this random self-portrait. Continue reading

Sunrise, sunrise

Elusia and I woke up at 4:30 this morning, not on purpose. We both couldn’t sleep, each of us needlessly worrying about projects we’re working on. After a couple hours and a shower, I decided to grab our Nikon D90 with new lens and take us outside to shoot the sunrise. We ended up across the street at the neighborhood playground. She’s got quite the eye for photos. Here are a handful of mine I felt like sharing.

It’s our 6th-month wedding anniversary. Aww.

This weekend is the sixth-month anniversary of being married to Elizabeth. We were married on Saturday, September 25, 2010, at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston, surrounded by a small circle of family and friends.

Here are some wonderful photos of the wedding, taken by our unofficial official photographer, Allyson Fauver.

Literally: Font faces

Font Face

Literal typeface

From: Hey, You’ve Got Some Font on Your Face: Typefaces, Literally – The Atlantic

For you typophiles out there, Spanish design company Atipo created this series of posters as an homage to four typefaces: Helvetica Bold, Carousel Medium, Caslon Italic, and Clarendon Bold. Inspired by Erwin Orlaf’s Paradise Portraits — a haunting series of clownish painted faces— designers Raul Garcia Del Pomar and Ismael Gonzalez smeared black and white makeup on models’ faces.

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”
— Neil Gaiman

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue perform again at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston

Trombone Shorty

Trombone Shorty

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue returned to the Paradise Rock Club in Boston last night, bringing their incredibly energetic “supafunkrock” sound. They are an amazing live band. Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews fully engages with the audience. When we saw them last year, they were the main act, and it seemed they could have easily gone on for five hours.

Elizabeth took photos of them last year from the balcony. Yesterday, we decided to go down closer to the stage, and, with camera in hand, I managed to get some good shots.

What do you think? Continue reading

A random look back at Muse 2010

Talking with Joan FitzGerald at Muse 2010 lunch

Chatting during lunch at Grub Street's Muse and the Marketplace 2010.

Grub Street, a fantastic nonprofit writing center in Boston, today launched its new daily blog, Grub Daily. I’m excited to see what the blog has in store for local writers. Today’s introductory post promises a schedule for every weekday: writing exercises, success stories, guest posts, literary advice and approving nods toward achieving members, aka Grubbies. Fantastic.

Another cool thing featured on the site: Flickr photos from Muse & the Marketplace 2010 — and yours truly is featured in a handful. Continue reading

Literary Death Match kicked off its 2011 season here in Boston, well, Cambridge, at the Enormous Room in Central Square. The crowd in attendance was easily double that of last time, when Literary Death Match was in Boston in October 2010. The energy was high was the four writers battled for the LDM medal in front of three judges. Continue reading
