Raspberries are the one true berry. I guess I don’t mean that in any biological sense, like when we talk about corvids vs. true crows. It’s just that they are the ones that are really yummy. And they are ridiculously expensive here in Japan. So I was pretty stoked to find this raspberry bush. However, I found it in the […]

Yeah, I see you looking intimidating. I however, am not a spider or small insect, so I suspect your attempt is misplaced. unless, perhaps, you are voguing? If so, carry on.

One of Ben Torode’s photos of Daisy got photoshopped most interestingly a little while back. Not really sure of the how or the why… but I’ll go with it. Sadly, I have not come across any of those in the wild, but there were a bunch of monarch butterflies kicking around the Chicago Botanical Gardens. While I’m unaware of the […]

I posted some macro shots of bees that I had found around home – and then I got to see this in the Chicago Botanical Gardens – beehives! Honeybees are a lot like working dogs – they get shuttled around where they are needed, to do the job that they can do better than us humans. In this case, collecting […]

Museum: an Analog experience

Museum: an Analog experience

Writing that title, I cringed. Not just because it’s a terrible pun. Because I don’t really like the word analog to describe film. The problem is, image sensors are also analog technology – its just that they feed data into a digital sensor. But that can  be said for film as well. I am certainly not darkroom printing my stuff […]

Beached!

Someone once complained to me that she didn’t like the way that people on the beach in Chicago pretended the lake was an ocean. We don’t, but we still enjoy our beaches. We are just keenly aware that we don’t have salty buildup after swimming and we get to swim free of fear from sharks or jellyfish. But that doesn’t […]
