Iris: San Francisco, CA: 2012.
My wife Anna keeps telling me to follow my dreams in pursuing a career in photography. She just upped the ante with this Christmas gift.
I can’t emphasize how fortunate I’ve been in my life to have people that support my shit. From my lower-middle-class parents saying yes to my education, studies abroad, and constant moving across the country (this was killer for my Mexican mama), to my wife constantly saying, “you can do anything.” And to my amigos/as who contribute to my inspiration year in and year out. Thanks. I hope to capture some beautiful images soon. Tulum, Burma (possibly!), and NYC are all planned this year.
Right now, it is a nice little walk throughout Bellingham, WA with my bad ass new tool. Baby, it is rockin’ outside.
I spent a lovely afternoon with my newlywed friends Josh (left) and his lovely wife Sue (left) last weekend in San Jose. I met Josh on my first day at UCLA when I walked into our dorm room, furnished with bunk beds, and found him picking out the top bunk. Early bird got the worm.
He just finished up his doctoral degree at MIT, is a master of memory, composes and captures spectacular photography, and loves bagel bites. As you can see, our wives have their hands full when we’re together.
This striking Radiolab video made by Everynone was inspired by Radiolab’s Desperately Seeking Symmetry episode. Filmmakers Will Hoffman, Daniel Mercadante, and Julius Metoyer III play with our yearning for balance, and reveal how beautiful imperfect matches can be.
Turtle sex is funny.
