Fuckery in the Pandemic

Yeah, I get it, we’ve all had a case of the “quarantine crazies.” We’re allowed to – there’s a pandemic happening. But sometimes, these “crazies” cause us to do things that bleed into the category of “fuckery.” These crazies are often times questionable, and sometimes, maybe should not be allowed to happen.   Activities that […]

Not a travel post

Pretty recently, I found myself looking through photos I had taken in Taiwan months ago after failing to fall back asleep after waking up way too early at around six in the morning. This may not have been the best idea, because it really kept me from going back to sleep and made me too […]

I’ve recently been reminded by my sister that there is a wealth of glorious words that have no English equivalents. I was trying to name this series of photos to no avail.

In the last few years, Philadelphia has become my home. I’ve been walking around the city a lot with a camera and realized just how important this city has become for me. After traveling so much and seeing so many beautiful places, I tend to forget about what I have right at home. Things might […]
