Burning Houses.

The Burning House Project almost attempts to condense an interview into one question. If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It's a conflict between what's practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities.

I've become completely enthralled peering into the lives of contributors, and it's made me think quite a bit about my most precious possessions (ok, well, maybe I've already thought it through since I live in earthquake country...), and I might be inspired to share my own. 

....Clearly there are some photographers in the bunch, eh?

Dear Photograph.

In a world of ever evolving change around us, I love this concept: Take a picture of the past in the present.

Hundreds of thousands of bouncy balls wildly racing down the streets of San Francisco??!  Yes please!!! 

This just brought a big smile to my Friday, and has inspired next week's theme of clever photography projects!

Danish photographer Peter Funch captured the impressive spectacle.

Happy Summer Solstice!

The summer solstice is upon us!!

It was a stunningly beautiful day in San Francisco, and it was difficult to keep my mind from wandering towards vacation...

Isn't this clear kayak brilliant?!

Witty Eats: Quiche.

Quiche is hands down one of my favorite things to whip up and share with friends, at all hours of the day.  This just about sums up my lazy Saturday morning this past weekend...  After a week of travelling, I was ready for a little time in the kitchen!

Scenes from the Weekend: Raclette.

Enjoyed a fabulous raclette dinner party with friends on Friday night!

Seeing Stars.

Loved this photo of Ahu Tongariki the moment I saw it! 

And who can resist the awesome luggage accoutrement, with one of my favorite sayings on it?!
