Kristin’s 19th Birthday

Kristin came to meet me at work.

She had some soft shell tacos at Chipotle.

We went to Magnolia where I shot this very quick and blurry shot of the cupcakes with my blackberry.

She had the banana pudding.

Birthday Girl!

Slim Cessna’s Auto Club at The Bell House 7/13/09


All I wanted to know is when were going to start passing the snake….this was a really fun live band to see and was a treat because I had not planned on being there but met Bryan at The Bell House and viola!

Subway Story 7/21/09

On my way home this evening, the guy seated nest to me kept nodding off and slipping onto my shoulder. He was apologetic and so I really didn’t mind. Then he got off and the guy that was seated in front of me (I was seated by the window in one of those two-seater thingys) moved over to sit next to me… and proceeded to start nodding off and slipping onto my shoulder. I began to think it was me and that somehow I was the unwitting distributor of some sort of sleep aid. Oh, by the way, this all happened before 6pm. New York City must party hard on Monday nights 🙂

So, apparently, even my own surroundings have changed. When I arrived home from Portland last week, the magnolia tree that has stood in front of the house next door for my entire life was gone…chopped down and roots removed. This was a beautiful tree which only bloomed once a year in spring. Yes, the flowers and leaves made a mess, however, the beauty and perfume of the flowers were well worth it.

Then I went into my backyard for a bar-b-que and saw that that hedges were gone as well! They had run across where you see the fence – in fact, the fence was not visible. The bottom photo also shows what’s left of the magnificent magnolia….

This is the corner of 65th Street and Bay Parkway, Bishop Kearney High School. I tried to get as much of the surroundings in as possible by using a fish eye lens. These photos were requested by Marlo.
