The other side of the Kawaguchiko ropeway has a volcano and a roller coaster park. But make sure you check out the lake side as well, it has a nice view of lake Kawaguchi, and the surrounding city.  In an interesting footnote, this photo shows the bridge that allowed me to identify lake Kawaguchi when I was climbing up Mt Fuji […]

  I know the algorithm is all kinds of wonky, but I’ve only ever been ‘explored’ on Flickr once before, so it was kinda a nice surprise to come home to. Especially since today was a long, productive day. I got stuff done today. So I’m gonna eat my dinner, do a little more work, and then celebrate by seeing […]

Andrew has moved on to better and more interesting photographic experiments. But every time I see a pigeon I still think of him. Also, of holding a strobe and chasing pigeons towards him. That was a ridiculous amount of fun that one time.

Not the Ocean

I’ve said it before, but that’s because it really sticks with me – a comment by someone that I used to know. A comment about people in Chicago pretending the lake is an ocean. It made me laugh at the time because that is a fundamental misunderstanding of the situation. We know it’s not an ocean. There aren’t any sharks, […]

Buckingham Fountain is a bit of a weird duck. In some contexts, it’s very standard American – built by a rich American, memorializing a family member back when we were dealing with the first wave of industrialization oligarchy. But most people think of it as the fountain at the beginning of Married… With Children.  There’s a bunch of stuff in […]

You don’t usually see bikes locked properly in Tokyo. It may be because of the relative safety, or perhaps the illusion of safety, but I definitely got funny looks when I was using my chain and u-lock. Clearly, this rider has some Chicago pride, and the Chicago bike-locking skills to go with it.

What every 70s vegetarian needs.

A giant, disco- bean. Not  really sure what about it say ‘Millenium’ but hey, let’s go with it. It’s certainly still a draw, and it’s been there for almost 10 years. It’s a pretty cool spot to people-watch; I think the selfie-generation is even more ensorceled by it’s funhouse-mirror reflections, and even I stooped to taking my own photo. You […]
