Seattle at dusk.

I found myself out and about much later tonight than any other night so far. I’ve now been here a week. Crazy, it feels like it’s been so long, yet it hasn’t been at all. This city is incredibly beautiful.

A week ago Thursday morning, I left for my summer internship at The Seattle Times. It was not an easy morning. But Seattle is beautiful. And three days in, the internship is off to a good start. So all is well. But I still miss home. And Scott.

1. I met the President and First Lady. There’s video here of my friends and I getting honored at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

2. I walked in graduation. I am steps (well, words) away from my master’s degree from the University of Missouri.

Happily ever after.

My best friend Diane got married in Chicago two weekends ago. It was awesome.

I still haven’t gone through the rest of the photos from that trip. That’s not so awesome.

I’ll get to it, Diane.
Sometime soon.
I hope.

Lights out, briefly.

Every day, I ride the metro. And every day, I sit with my camera in my hands thinking, “Another day on the metro. Nothing interesting happening here.” But still I sit there, camera in hand.

Just in case the lights turn out for thirty seconds.

Another from New York

New York is just so busy. So crazy. So many things going on. So many memories. So many characters. So many lives. I feel like this photo has a lot of that all balled up into one.

Made me miss the small town feel of Missouri.

Just for a minute.

I’ve discovered this neat little iPhone app called Instagram, which is both a photo processing program and a sharing platform. The photos look better on the mobile platform, but I thought I’d share a few from this weekend here. Part kitchy, part awesome, all creative.




What you lookin’ at, Willis?

I went to New York this weekend and rode the express A train uptown for the first time.

So of course, I had to take a picture of our operator.

Re-discovering the District.

Or, in other words, getting very lost in semi-familiar places. Photos found along the way.
