Ghibellina: Gamberi e Polenta

Tried a new place for brunch a few weekends ago, Ghibellina on 14th St NW. Had a lovely shrimp and polenta dish and overall enjoyed the experience. Would definitely head back for another visit.

Ten Years On…

Just thinking about 2007 now that we’re ten years on from it. I’m moderately more of an adult now than I was then, but I miss a little bit of my carefree shenanigans and not feeling weighed down by everything. I don’t even know if I’d really recognize myself from then, but it’s nice to flip through my online photo albums and realize what a difference a decade makes.

Julia Child… (and Her Amazing Friends)

I absolutely love this photo of Julia Child filming a promo for “The French Chef” in 1964. It embodies the reason I’ve never quite made any food/recipe/cooking videos for YouTube: it’s a heck of a lot of work!

Alexandria Library Sit-In (1939)

On August 21, 1939, five citizens of the city walked into library and sat at one of its reading tables. Though surrounded by the wisdom of the ages, they were denied access to the thoughts on the shelves around them for a reason as implausible as the color of their skin. For merely being in the room, they were arrested.

Cleveland Park is both cute and photogenic, even on grey and rainy days. Just a few pictures taken while wandering around and waiting for my brunch spot to open.

Mid-Century Modern: 1951 Armstrong Flooring Catalog

I’ve always had a fondness for the mid-century modern era’s ability to create an alternate “perfect reality” in their ads. Check out these delightful pictures from the 1951 Armstrong Flooring Catalog from flickr user mcudeque. A better idea for family...

Renwick Gallery – “Wonder”

The Renwick Gallery had been under renovation and repair and only just re-opened last month. Never one to pass up a new (or new to me) museum, I visited in the rainy and foggy days after Thanksgiving. The current exhibit...

Paris Lights, Eiffel Tower by C.D.K

Just browsing through Tumblr, I saw this shot of Paris lights by C.D.K. Simply gorgeous. And a much braver street photographer than I. Not sure I’m ready to risk my camera to the elements like that. But it’s clear that...

Too Soon, Balloons!

Spotted these balloons a few days ago in the Columbia Heights metro station. I’d like to hope that they were for a birthday and happened to be someone’s favorite colors, but I know better. Those. Are. Christmas. Balloons. You know...
