One of the mind-blowing advantages of living in Paris for the year is being able to take a short flight or train ride to another country! My wife and I have been fortunate to do quite a bit of traveling this year but we hadn’t made it to Italy yet. With the year winding down … More An Italian lizard on a wall
The olympics just ended in London and without cable at home I was mostly crawling around news sites online to get my olympics fix. I was excited to find that beyond the typical and very excellent sports photography inundating papers and blogs, there were a few more artistic styles being popularized by photographers. One of … More Tilt-shift Photography
Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since my last post but I’ve been busy sorting through notes, making plans and getting back into the swing of things in New Haven. I’m hoping to put up some last pictures and videos from the Europe trip over the next week or so. For the first installment head … More Europe Photos Are Up!
I’m sorry this update is so late in coming. I’ve had a busy last few days in Rome and just didn’t carve out the time to peck out updates on my phone. I’m in Greece now (more on that soon!) and have a bit of time to do some backfilling! I arrived in Rome in … More Rome
The next stop in my travels looking for lizards was Cinque Terre National Park. Cinque Terre is most famous for its five small towns along the rugged coast of north western Italy that were historically connected only by long, steep trails. Nowadays the towns are well connected by land and by sea, but my goal … More Cinque Terre

I no longer spread out the map across the entire front seats and dashboard: Instead I have the aid of this fellow sitting next to me: In all seriousness, this is a post about making things work in the … More My new copilot

Up until now I’ve been holding off on going to dinner. I did have a pizza in Mattinata that was delicious but the restaurants along the shore were mostly very expensive and I didn’t feel like walking home from a restaurant at 11. So, now that I’m here in Tremoli I’ve managed to find some … More Italian food
After a bit more rigamarole in Foggia I was excited to put that part of Italy behind me and I went straight north to a smaller coastal town called Tremoli. Tremoli is the primary staging ground for ferries to the four Tremiti islands, about an hour off the coast of Italy and, I hoped, somewhat … More Termoli and Tremiti
Just one update. The car is well over halfway back to perfect but it turns out the mechanics only had a replacement for the big window, not the little accent window next to the passenger side mirror. In impressive creativity and telling generosity the grinding I heard while watching the broom lady was them cutting … More Car repair update
