Bob’s Diner, Manayunk PA (Cream Chipped Diary)

It was a slow morning in Manayunk. I woke up on the pull-out bed of my friends apartment to the sound of fresh rain and a busy street through the open window. The kind of sounds that put my brain at ease, and help me through this quasi-hangover which, truth be told, I thought was…

Cream Chipped Diary

One of my all time favorite things about living where I live is the plethora of diners. I love diner food and all its different styles and qualities, diner staff, diner design, all of it. I’ve been to many in my life but one thing still holds true: You can tell a diner by its…

Inner-City Zen

When you cross the street in the city, it’s a dance. But it’s a special dance. It’s aggressive, calculated, graceful, zen. You are one with the pavement, dedicated with each step, mindful of every surrounding thing. And when someone comes at you, if someone challenges your step? Fuck em. This is your fucking city and…

Hikes & Haiku’s

It’s been a weird blur of so many things from the time I got back to work till now. Time seems to pass so quickly these days it’s hard to keep track. I remember events, but forget what day they happened. Sometimes I just straight up forget what day it is, which happened before but…

The Princess & The Ocean (In Places #1)

I have always been in love with the ocean. There’s something about it that calls to me and comforts me. People of a certain belief will tell you it’s cause I’m an “Aquarius” or something about the way I grew up, but no matter the reason, it’s there and it’s strong. The list of things…

In Places

A few years ago I started a photo series called “In Places”. I’d be somewhere, spot a neat shot or have an idea pop into my head, then set up my phone in some handy way (or ask somebody to take it) and get the picture. Most of them are on my Instagram, some of…

Vacasa and The Future

Lately we’ve been talking about what we want for the New Year. Whether it’s being healthier or spending more time as a family, we have a number of goals moving forward. One of those is special though: traveling. Going to other states, other countries etc. has always been a goal. But our passion is seriously…
