photos: Hey… I shot that!

Work has been kinda busy lately, so I’ve fallen behind on my “3 days a week” writing self-assignment. But to be honest, I was never very good with homework, including that which I assign myself. Leading up to the weekend,...


photo: prophet of the long road

Wednesday night is our standing “ürb is tired of cooking, so we’re going out to eat” night, and often we can rope a friend or two into joining us. We were lucky enough to have some amazingly non-humid weather, so...

Abandoned motorized wheelchair in SE DC 1

in DC: it’s a miracle?

photography: capturing the moment

This will be my last post regarding the Inauguration, I promise. I’m already feeling the information overload and starting to turn back into “non-political Brian.” This panoramic photograph, however, is absolutely amazing. David Bergman took this photo, the file measuring...


44: a very nice number indeed!

The Big Picture from The Boston Globe has some amazing photos from Washington DC and around the world during yesterday’s Inaugural events. The satellite photo is incredible, of course, but it was the above image that appealed to me. Just...
