Last Monday I played the role of tourist with a trip to Staten Island. The original goal of my trip was to have a taste of Sri Lankan food. (Who knew that the largest community of Sri Lankans in the US reside just across the water in the St. George area of Staten Island?) But […]
I have always wanted to go back to the portrait series I did many years ago at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C. I finally had the chance this past Friday, and took a trip to the Natural History Museum here in New York City. In comparing the two sets of photos, this […]
I hope all of my fellow New Yorkers have had the chance to go play in the snow this evening! We were walloped with 25 inches (and still waiting for the official count) of snow starting at around midnight last night. I went out this evening at 8:30 p.m. to check out the status of […]

Corinna is a fantastic model based in Tampa, whose specialty is her vintage look. I simply adore the classical feel of pin up photography, and it is actually an easy look to achieve […]
With the coldest air of the season beating down on New York City, I thought sharing photos from one of Tampa’s most serene spaces was in order. Welcome to the Wat Mongkolratanaram of Florida, a Buddhist temple located alongside the Palm River near Brandon. The ‘wat,’ or monastery temple, was established in its present location […]
