I wore a bandana around my neck all summer, folded into a triangle to protect my nape from the high altitude sun. When I was hot, I would wet it in a stream or with my water bottle and use the magic of evaporation to cool me down. The Clothes Horse inspired me to wear […]

After shooting a client in downtown Vacaville, I headed to the covered bridge behind the Nut Tree for my own photos. I was saddened to see that the eucalyptus forest around the bridge has been cut down and the bridge stands, naked, between a parking lot and a bare field. I suppose I should be […]

I’ve never been to a Buddhist temple or even a meditation group, so I was stumped on what to wear to the grand opening of the Sacramento Dharma Center. Would I have to take my shoes off? Would I be sitting on the ground? On a cushion? Or would there be prolonged standing? Is exposed […]

Pink Labia Hats

True story: I thought the “pink pussy” hats promoted on the Sacramento Women’s March’s Facebook page were hats topped with knitted labias. The page offered free knitting patterns, but that sounded way too complicated for a non-knitter to tackle. (I did like the thought of a how such a hat could be personalized.) With no […]
