2016: Most Memorable Movie Outings

By in Friends & Family, Movies

I saw exactly 100 films during 2016. That’s double my self-imposed limit of 4 per month (oops), way more than my mother (“I don’t think I saw 4 movies this entire YEAR!”), and way less than my film-critic boyfriend (who watched more than 300). While I certainly have personal favorites from those— including the usual “Best Films of […]

SmugMug Ho!

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Roundups

After 10 years with Flickr, I’m finally jumping ship and moving my online photo archives over to SmugMug. It’s going to be a challenge over the next year (when my Flickr Pro expires), but I think SmugMug will suit me better, and I’m looking forward to taking advantage of its cool features (GIFs-support! Custom gallery layouts!). To start […]

By in Friends & Family, Movies

Adam’s “Best Movies of the Year” list is in this week’s CITY Newspaper. He saw SO MUCH stuff this year (seriously: over 300 films) and he gave this TONS and TONS of late-night, compare-and-contrast thought. Read it at: http://goo.gl/qN70XK As a lover of movies in all genres, he tries very hard to leave baggage at […]

Autumnal Powers

By in Friends & Family, Video

Our trivia team headed to Powers Farm Market in Pittsford, an annual tradition for many of us. I shot two photos, and made this little video. One of these years I’ll actually go on the hayride. Not pictured: the revelation that the sugar cookies Adam & I love actually come from Leo’s Bakery in East Rochester. Now […]

Horror-holiday: Santa’s Magical Kingdom

By in Friends & Family, Video

While visiting Brian & Alana in Missouri, we frequently passed a local roadside attraction called Santa’s Magical Kingdom – a campground decked out in hundreds of thousands of lights for the holidays. Immediately deciding we wanted to visit for a kitschy good time, Brian’s Dad agreed to drive his pickup truck, while the four of us huddled […]

Secret Spidey Claus

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza

WE HAVE SPIDERS LIVING IN OUR CHRISTMAS TREE. And not just one. Not just two. No no, like a whole colony of them. Emotions range from creeped-out-but-handling-it (Me) to going-to-die-of-terror-any-second (Adam). There appear to be (possibly?) two kinds of them, but we’re not sure. They seem to “jump” a bit more than we think spiders […]

Backdrops & Crossed Arms

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Work

Brian, for his website; Whitney, for her senior photos; Matt W, just because. For my cousin Whitney’s senior photos, we did a mix of her in her soccer uniform in front of her High School, in front of blue and black backdrops in a “studio” setting, and a few of her at the George Eastman House gardens.

“Our State Fair is a Great State Fair”

By in Friends & Family, Photopalooza, Roundups

For a day of downtime in between mountains of work, MAMA’s House, honorary member Kevin G, and “Friends of the House” Brian & Alana all ventured to the New York State Fair on its opening weekend this season. It was very State Fair-like: barns of animals, delicious fried food, Native American dance demonstrations, seizure-inducing midway […]
