Excellence in Architectural Glass

May 24th, 2019

Wherever you are in the world, you can probably find yourself in the nearby vicinity of some great architecture. I know that I like to look for unique details on buildings, especially older buildings. It’s often these features that make the building stand out.

Never too Old to Learn

Feb 28th, 2019

I think the question “how was your day?” is probably one of the worst ones to ask a child. Why? Because probably a good 95 percent of the time the answer is “Good.” In the case of my own child, I’ve started to move away from these simple, one-word-answer questions, and have started to ask […]

Freeze Frame

Dec 7th, 2018

Remember cameras? Not digital cameras, but old-school film cameras?

A New Kind of Revolution

Aug 31st, 2017

There’s a lot from the 1980s I hope doesn’t make a comeback. I can do without the big shoulder pads and the overabundance of Miami Vice-esque everything, from the clothes to the hairstyles to that beachy-white-pastel décor. Please, stay gone. But, on the other hand, I think the 1980s brought us some of the best […]
