Ever since I started toying around with faux tilt-shift effects in my photography I've been getting some questions about how I'm achieving the look.
Sadly, I don't own a tilt-shift lens. They're way too expensive for wh [...]
The second half of our time at Humboldt State was spent living in "the Tree House," the self-appointed name for my friend's giant house on the highest hill in Arcata. We lived there with her, two other gals an [...]
Well, I finally made it. This is the last post in my Arcata series from the month+ I spent there this summer. Seeing as I'm done (done done done) with school, there's no telling when we'll be in that area again.
So, to wra [...]
Allyson and Jamie moved out of their cabin-like home and into a sardine can this summer. It's pretty darn cute!
They don't have much for a back yard, but they do live down the street from Big Pete's, Redwood Yogurt a [...]
Breakfast: Most days I had chopped fruit topped with muesli, peanuts, plain yogurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Drinks: Lots of tea was consumed, and even though I don't really drink coffee, you have to go out for i [...]
This summer's been such a busy one for me that when I got back from summer school, I'd forgotten entirely about all the photos I took while I was in Arcata! I took so many that I've divided the posts into 9 categories: Kr [...]

Yesterday was my last opportunity to take advantage of Allyson's job at Moonstone Grill, a ritzy little restaurant about 15 minutes north, in Trinidad. Chris and I had joined her about a month ago for my first tiny step int [...]
I was going to do the obligatory photo-dump of everything I got for Christmas, but since we're moving next week it all got loaded up and hauled away before I even had a chance to enjoy most of it! I'll have to wait until Ma [...]
I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween this year! We threw a spooky-ooky dance party, full of dorky good fun: we bobbed for apples, ate loads of sweets and most importantly, danced our pants off! Kudos to Kristina (mi [...]
As I've mentioned before, I love games of all sorts. Video games, card games, board games-- I even like games that involve physical exertion (though to a much smaller degree, natch). When I think of settling down in the futur [...]
This past Sunday I threw an ultra mini-picnic in my back yard as one last "Hurrah!" to summer.
I made a quick and easy pasta dish for everyone to eat. On the side of my bowl are a few slices of rosemary bread, which E [...]
