On the second day of my period during a marital separation, feeling extra hormonal and mopey, I hopped on a bicycle and passed a scene that could only happen in New York. A scruffy-looking fellow who I probably would have mistaken for homeless except that he was riding an expensive-looking bicycle, was BLASTING Sinead O’Connor’s rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which—under the circumstances—brought tears to my eyes. I pedaled behind him for a few blocks, listening to the mournful […]
Life is just beachy. As of this week, I’ve lived on the Jersey Shore for precisely one year . . . and when I say “on the shore,” I mean we are literally steps away from the beach. The curious thing is, I’ve only brought my good camera out there two or three times! I generally just bring my camera phone because it’s easier. To be fair, I have caught some great photos that way, as well. However, there’s nothing quite like a […]

“The creative process does not end with an idea–it only starts with an idea.” –John Arnold (1913-1963) I was walking home one night at dusk, when I saw this bike parked in my neighborhood. The nearby streetlamps cast eerie shadows on the sidewalk in front of me. I snapped a picture of it for posterity’s sake. Upon arriving home, I uploaded the image to my computer and adjusted the color saturation, etc., resulting in the following image. At some point, […]
It seems to be a rite of passage for a Philadelphian to take the 60-plus mile trek to the New Jersey coastline. This was my second visit (the first having been to New Jersey’s only dog-friendly beach in Manasquan). This most recent visit was to Ocean City. Here, one finds miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, plus a boardwalk with restaurants, arcades, and tons of shopping. From June through August, Ocean City hosts countless beachgoers on any given day. […]
As far as American East Coast cities go, Philadelphia sometimes gets a bad rap. But the longer I live here, the more I realize how much beauty surrounds me everywhere. Sure there is poverty, violence, and urban decay . . . but these things co-exist with murals, music, and vibrant urban markets. For those who might otherwise refuse to give Philly a second glance, take a closer look and you may find that this city is definitely worth a visit.
Here are a few more pictures of the City of Brotherly Love . . . My sister, Ilona, might open up a shop like this someday, only it will be called “Madame Verona’s,” and it will specialize in prophetic dreaming. Apparently, skyways are not exclusive to my native Minneapolis. Check out this septuple-decker! Lions are at their prettiest when I’m not at risk of being clawed. I always find decrepit bathhouses to be a bit spooky (and believe me, I’ve […]
