new photo blog

i started this blog in 2006, and it's shifted along with my interests through the years. it's been witness to a lot of learning for me...

still, i feel that i need a home for my photography -- so from now on, i'll be posting my pictures on the journal on my reworked website. if you like my photos, you might decide to follow me there!

my first post is here -- check it out!

as for this blog, i'm not sure what will happen. i don't think i'm willing to let it go, and certainly i'll keep it as an archive, but i need some time to figure it out.

for those of you that pop in from time to time, thanks for the visits and encouragement.

goodbye, columbo

september 16, 1927 – june 23, 2011
no more things.

... well, maybe just one more thing...

from the wall street journal's how peter falk made lt. columbo iconic:

'in every story, falk’s columbo showed us what a grave mistake it was to judge a person by how they dressed, the car they drove, or how much education they had.  every time he brought down one of those rich, highly educated, supremely self-confident, outrageously good-looking murderers, he not only chipped away at our ridiculous notions of what makes a hero, he offered us escape in an entirely different way. falk made us believe, through his deceptively simple performance, that we didn’t have to be rich, well-dressed, or have an ivy league education to be the smartest person in the room…nor did we have to be physically perfect, and the consummate tough guy, to be a man.

we just had to be true to ourselves.
