When I interviewed for my first journalism job after I graduated from college, this spot was the home of a newspaper that was first published in 1825. Now, 20 years after my first full-time job in the business, it is home to a bank, a Target, a Five Guys and all kinds of other bullshit. … More 365 photo project: Day 73
When all of my friends are on social media talking about “Friyay,” or when I hear someone say, “Thank God it’s Friday,” well, sometimes I grumble. Ya see, your Friday means nothing to me because I don’t have Fridays off. I don’t have Saturdays and Sundays off either. Your weekend is just part of my … More More snow, more snow photos

It makes driving dangerous. It makes running, heck even walking, an injury waiting to happen. It steals my … More So much snow
I don’t have cable, so when I’m home and want to chill out by watching television, I spend a lot of time watching YouTube. Lately, though I haven’t always acted on it, I’ve drawn a lot of creative inspiration from the platform. I subscribe to a ton of photographers and filmmakers, not only because I … More Drawing inspiration
