Attention Hog

Jackson has gone from a dog that actively disliked close contact (growled and snapped) to one that absolutely demands it. He jumps on the bed and stretches, full-length on top of me, belly to belly. He likes to “share” the armchair with me, each of us wedging our seats into a corner and then overlapping […]

Or that releasing your unwanted chicken into an existing, feral flock usually results in them being pecked to death? I suppose I didn’t need to know […]

Change of Bridges

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 […]

Winter White

I buy very little white. I’m really messy and I don’t think it looks good on me. But I’m giving this thrifted, open-weave tunic a chance. I have to admit that I love the way white looks with red. And now I’m thinking about pairing it with my white, faux fur vest (also thrifted) for […]

Let’s be honest: this jacket is a joke. It did nothing to keep me warm in freezing temps, walking around midtown. But it’s really cute, right? And I managed to zip it up. Well, zip it up to my boobs. I relied on this vintage fur from Beefy’s aunt to keep the upper half covered. […]
