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…

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!

Dream House

Dream House

This here, people, is my dream house. I love the old Tudor style (Tudor, right? I think that’s correct…) and how cozy and inviting it looks. It’s the kind of house that would invite you in for some tea and cookies and allow you to curl up in a blanket in front of its fireplace.

The only problem with this house is that it is in Vermont. And do you KNOW how cold Vermont gets in the winter? And by winter, obviously I am talking about September through May. Because there is no fall or spring anywhere in New England.

    I would say that this particular style strikes me more as Queen Anne than Tudor. It boasts the steeply pitched roof and the decorative gables found in the Tudor, but lacks the the characteristic massive chimney, stonework, and half-timber siding. This particular house has a front porch, however, which strikes me as both a more modern and American convention than would normally be inspired by Tudor architecture. (Americans like to sit and stare out at their massive tracts of land.) Nevertheless, I am reasonably certain that Queen Anne makes extensive use of the medieval motifs on which it was based, so historically, the styles are closely related. Nice house :)

    Wow, someone knows a lot about architecture! Impressive. Queen Anne it is!!

    Confession - I took a history of architecture class this semester…but some of this information was actually confirmed by Google. The porch thing, though, that was all mine. And I was TOTALLY right!

    I personally think it needs another sign in the front yard. I’m thinking a deer crossing one…and then maybe one of those big green power boxes I used to play on as a kid.

    Apparently it would also need a moose crossing sign. Apparently there are a lot of moose sightings in the area.
