The Ace Portland

I recently stayed at the Ace in Portland. It's a design-junkie's paradise (not to mention that there is also a Stumptown next door). Portland is an awesome town, filled with cool cafes, beautiful re-purposed buildings and tons and tons of food trucks. Next time, hopefully, I'll have more time there. Thanks cousin for showing us around! It was so great seeing you.

Camera Wall

As my husband knows, I'm completely obsessed with this camera wall, as seen in the Levi's Photo Workshop down in the Deitch Projects space at 18 Wooster Street. They rented out vintage cameras (and a few non-vintage, like the Instax) for free. It was a really wonderful space and a truly incredible experience to have hung out there.

Jury Duty in Chinatown on the Minolta SR-T 101

I recently had the pleasure of being summoned for jury duty in Chinatown. I brought my new-old Minolta SR-T 101 35 mm camera with me (acquired at the camera sale bonanza at Housing Works) and bought film during my lunch break. When I realized that the film would have to go through the scanner, I shot through the entire roll on the fifteen minute walk back to the courthouse. It was a pretty fun exercise on an extremely hot summer day in New York City.
