New portfolio

I wanted to revamp my photography portfolio a little bit. Annnd I wanted to try this flash website builder.


This is not entirely comprehensive, but it's a start.

Squirrel memorial

I know I'm a little behind the times, but I just read Blankets by Craig Thompson and loved it. I'm a sucker for a good coming-of-age story and this one is so good. And his style is just awesome.

I miss youuuu.

If I were a groundhog...

Based on this:

(By me, age 6. Note the experimental spelling and punctuation. And the creative use of highlighters.)

This is really fun! I think I'll do more.

This series by Yeondoo Jung is awesome. It's from 2005, but I just discovered it recently. He recreates children's drawings in photographs, and the result is weird and beautiful. Love it.

Everyone loves the Wienermobile.

My friend Katie visited from Grand Rapids over the weekend, and we went to one of my very favorite places: Henry Ford Museum! Much of my childhood (as I remember it) took place at the museum, as well as Greenfield Village. I was afraid it might have lost its magic now that I'm older, but nope. It's still amazing.

I was so so sad when I realized that my memory card was at home, but it was still great without a camera. We saw JFK's limousine, the chair Lincoln was shot in, the Rosa Parks bus, Ford's steam engines,


a light bulb, an Eames chair, the old-fashioned diner, the 1952 Wienermobile, and R. Buckminster Fuller's futuristic house (which I want). Plus tons of other neat history.

If you're ever in Southeast Michigan, you need to go there.

I am fearless.

Ok February. It is ON.

(I know you weren't referring to a blog, but thanks for the advice anyway.)

I saw A Single Man today and I definitely recommend it. The story and the photography are both beautiful, and Colin Firth is at his best. Also, the goofy kid from About a Boy is in it and he's all grown up. Go see it.
