The Journeys with Shakespeare Bit

Good morrow to ye!   I’m still feeling slightly Elizabethan-y after a pleasant rendezvous last weekend with a couple friends – and with my all time favorite playwright! On a warm evening in Griffith Park, we took in the Independent Shakespeare Company’s charming outdoor production of Pericles, Prince of Tyre – and while there are questions surrounding […]

The Picture (Plu)perfect Bit

Ah, photo management in the digital age!  Life is so easy now that we can fill the ether with edited and annotated snaps! Trouble is I still have a gigantic storage box full of hopelessly disorganized media from other ages.  Included in this herd of Kodachrome cats are frayed photographs, 35mm slides, and negatives of […]

The Bit in “Plane” View

I just love a good view – from the higher up the better! Earlier this year when I flew from LA to New York, I took advantage of the opportunity to grab a few high elevation shots along the way! Afterwards, I was inspired to take a stroll through my photo collection in search of […]

NYC: The Big Apple ‘Speed Date’ Bit (Part 2)

Welcome to Part 2 of my “speed date” with New York City!   The thing is I was barely in Manhattan 24 hours (a few of which were spent sleeping), so there wasn’t time for the proper tour of a museum, or the taking in of a musical or a play.  Like a speed date situation, it […]

NYC: The Big Apple ‘Speed Date’ Bit (Part 1)

It happened!  As teased in a previous post, I got to visit New York City for the first time ever!  It was an all too brief encounter of just two days in Manhattan – barely enough time to get a few first impressions. So I guess it was kind of like a speed date! I’d […]
