Hurricane Isabel


This was not my car, but many suffered the same fate after Hurricane Isabel in 2003. It was awful. My apartment was out of power and hot water for ten days. The day after to storm I rode my bike around taking pictures. My Grandmother misunderstood me and for months after that told everyone that I rode the 10 miles to her house. Nope, I drove. Luckily there were no big trees on my block.

Dad's car, 1985



The best part about this picture is that this is how tall I was when I took it.

I plan on recording some new songs soon.

In "the biz" they call it "preproduction." I call it "sitting in my bedroom with a metronome and Pro Tools editing click tracks on a Sunday afternoon."

Eeyore

My grandmother made the Eeyore. Olympus made the tape recorder. I don't know who made the bed or the window or the walls. I made the picture.

I've got a crush on Portland, Oregon

Someday I will live in Portland, Oregon and I will ride my bike everywhere. As I was taking a picture of this bike-friendly sign, a person happened to ride through the break in the median where bikes can go straight but cars can't.

Tofu Fish

My seafood-flavored tofu that I cut into the shape of a fish in a restaurant when I visited Matt and Kendall in Boston. I think Kendall was embarrassed that I was playing with my food and taking pictures of it in public.

Plenty of Time

I wish I could remember where I saw this - but I guess I've got plenty of time to find it.

Dad's Bookshelf

My Dad built this bookshelf in his bedroom at my Grandmother's house when he was in high school. After she died and we had to clean the house out, I could think of nothing that would make the house less of our family's home than taking down that bookshelf. It just seemed so permanent. Although it would be sad, during all the cleaning out, I imagined a nice father-son moment in taking it apart with him. However, he ended up getting an estate sale company to come and sell off everything left in the house after we had gotten out what we wanted. I don't blame him, if I had a 40-year old bookshelf, I wouldn't be able to take it apart either.

School Bus


I forget the actual percentage, but when a school includes something like 30% black students or more, it is typically seen by white parents as providing inferior education than a school with a lower percentage.

Rock Band



I'll never understand why Atlas didn't use this as their official band picture.

Laundry Day

My Grandfather was a very prolific photographer. He would use up rolls and rolls of film on his point-and-shoot and then make multiple copies of each print. This is one of my favorites.

Under the Tower

radio tower
Over the last few months, my response to the question, "Do you miss Richmond?" has gone from an enthusiastic "No! Not at all!" to a shy "yeah sometimes."

I lived under this tower for two years.
