Get Crabby…

Get Crabby…

Regions of the United States all come with an attachment to food, a food they each think they do better than anyone else.  The deep south has grits and fried chicken, Texas has tex-mex, New England has clam chowder and both Chicago and New York claim pizza. We Marylanders claim crabs. We can steam, crack, pick, […]

Say Thank You, Please

Say Thank You, Please

I may have said it before, but my upbringing in manners and etiquette was quite formal.  I can still remember each time my brother and I would go to spend the night at our friend Jimmy’s house, which was often, being told by our parents “say ‘yes, sir’ and ‘yes, ma’am,’” though Jimmy’s mother Nancy […]

20 Hours on the Bay

20 Hours on the Bay

I have a pretty close relationship with my younger sister, a closer relationship the most older brothers and younger sisters, but that relationship does have its boundaries. For example, I did not attend the mentally scarring event also known as her bachelorette party. Instead of being present for that highly awkward situation, her finance Matt and […]

New Years for Nerds: A Front Seat for the #PlutoFlyby

New Years for Nerds: A Front Seat for the #PlutoFlyby

I count myself as a lucky man for many reasons, in part because my job as a photojournalist gives me the opportunity to experience once-in-a-lifetime events — several of them in the last 14+ years. This past Tuesday in the early morning hours, I rolled into the parking lot of John’s Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, home of […]

Greece: In and Out of Ruins

Greece: In and Out of Ruins

Once again Greece shouts “oxi!” (no), and it sends shivers through Europe. This time it’s not taking the moral high ground by saying no to Mussolini and the fascists, it’s to the European Union and the repayment of its debts. I’m not a going to get into the details (and this is most certainly not a financial blog), […]
