I took this photo shortly after my takeoff from the JFK airport after a red-eye from San Diego during my thirty days of travel. I was on my way to see Joel and Ashley in North Carolina, and despite feeling all sorts of jet lag after the previous flight paired with an extreme lack of sleep, I was astounded at the beautiful view from my seat as we quickly soared up into the clouds. Unfortunately, I had to sacrifice quality for clarity due to the lack of light as it was just after sunrise and still quite hazy, but I think it came out alright despite this. I just loved how the city was just barely visible along the horizon.

This was taken in the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. I spent a good bit of time enjoying the warm afternoon sun while walking through the park and checking out all the sculptures. By far, this one in particular was my favorite. It's called Seattle Cloud Cover, and it was done by Teresita Fernández. Here's a link to more information on the piece of art if you'd like to read more about it.


the clarinet, the clarinet…goes doodley doodley doodley doodley dat.

This lovely man was playing the most beautiful jazz on clarinet outside the Pike Place Market in Seattle. He had such a soulful sad sound…it matched the look in his eyes exactly. 9-16-09x4
