Throwback Thursday – Photos of My First Trip to London

This post is an exercise in embarrassment and reflection.  Ever look back at photos of yourself with confusion and anger sprinkled in with a bit of humor?  Well I found my old photos from my first trip abroad when I was just a wee undergraduate who had to try his best to look ambivalent in all his photos because I heard girls like that.

Arguments could be made about some unique museums and exhibits but those aren’t … Continue reading Shanghai Tower – As Viewed Through Dirty Glass

The featured photo is from a photoshoot I recently did while bored, much like this post. I just received word officially that the trip I was planning in April to Cameroon has been cancelled due to potential Civil War.  I mean I will grant that is a solid reason and I will keep that in my back pocket as the best excuse I have had … Continue reading An Update – I’m Getting Propaganda Translated and My Trips Keep Getting Cancelled…so…a Mixed Bag
