Good Monday to you, dear writers. All partied out? Let’s recover with some sleep, just in time for the next party on Wednesday night. Happy New Year!

Three Things: The Summer Vacation Edition

Comments Off on Three Things: The Summer Vacation Edition

Three Things

We all remember what summer vacation meant to us as kids. Those hot summer months meant freedom from routine, but more importantly, it meant freedom to make adventures for ourselves; freedom to get into trouble (mostly without getting caught); freedom to make magic happen.

This week, let’s explore that childhood summer-vacation feeling: anything is possible.

Three Things: Dream Edition II

2011 October 24

I had no tigers in my dreams last night (unfortunately), but it feels about time for another surreal edition. This week I’ve enlisted the help of three heavy-hitters in the contemporary photography world: Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison, Rodney Smith, and Sally Mann. Three scenes just begging for you to answer the question, “And then what happened?”
