I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Weekly Puppies

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

I hate crowds. And I realize what an anomaly this is considering I live in one of the most crowded cities in the world…but seriously, it’s like people’s IQs drop 50 points when they’re in a situation with 100 or more people. Comic Con was the perfect example of this stupidity.

Don’t get me wrong…I had a blast at Comic Con. The costumes, the art, the panels…it’s all a ton of fun. But the most horrible part of every day was the walk from the front doors of the Javits Center to Sean’s booth in artist alley. The amount of people who think it’s a good idea to stop in the middle of the crowded walkways to stare up at God-knows-what (probably some life-size statue of the Joker or something) is astounding. And to the guys dressed as World of Warcraft characters who thought it would be fun to have a sword fight in the middle of the convention….here’s a tip: It wasn’t fun. Not for everyone else trying to walk around and especially not for me, trying to carry 2 cups of coffee and lunch back to Sean after 2 1/2 days straight of working. But I do have to give you props…your costumes looked pretty great.

So anyway, yeah…crowds. They suck. And in this picture? This wasn’t even on the busy day…this was Friday when it was mostly just other professionals in the business. Saturday and Sunday were painful.
