The original packaged food: Heirloom seed packets

There are still remnants of the elegant bank that opened its corner doors in the 1920s. The marble floors. The railings, still gold but tarnished after decades of fingers gripping the cool metal. The tall, tall, rounded windows with watermelons … Continue reading

Rainy day succulents

The other day I found a few succulents. I did what I always do, and hovered over them with my phone, the Hipstamatic camera ready to go. I didn’t realize the lens changed on its own. But what happened were … Continue reading

The walnut harvest

The walnut harvest was a few months ago, but I seemed to only share photos with a little community known as Instagram. This year, I learned to appreciate the walnut. I learned to appreciate the growers. And the people who … Continue reading
