Darkest Night

  Dark­est Night Well, Durham cer­tain­ly got the snow it was promised! I awoke at 2 A.M. to a pow­er out­age and branch­es falling, so nat­u­ral­ly I went out­side for some pho­tos. This morn­ing, how­ev­er, it’s a dif­fer­ent sto­ry – the kids are hav­ing a blast, the par­ents are…

Snow Day in Durham

Snow Day:  Kids kept show­ing up at our house. What a great time of life, when any excuse pops up, you grab it as a chance to gig­gle, be sil­ly, try new things, be brave, freeze, fail, and have fun with new friends. Since we just cleaned out to move to Durham, and most…

Bee Downtown

Bee Down­town: I bumped into folks dec­o­rat­ing the awe­some bee-themed tree as part of the Tri­an­gle Christ­mas Tree Chal­lenge and start­ed snap­ping away. The orga­ni­za­tion is Bee Down­town, which has a com­plete sys­tem to pro­mote hav­ing bee­hives in urban loca­tions around the…

Progress. Durham Renowned the world around. Success.

If you asked me to sum up Durham in one pic­ture, this would be it. A catchy mot­to, a hint of charm, and a beau­ti­ful brick-and-paint­brush­es appre­ci­a­tion of the past, all while eager­ly pur­su­ing the future. It also looks real­ly cool. To see this mur­al in real life, vis­it…

ReCity Training

ReCity: One of the best answers to ‘Why Men­tor?’ I heard at the meet­ing for the ReCity train­ing event was ‘I see a need in my city—It’s up to me to work on the solu­tion.’ The ReCity orga­ni­za­tion won’t be recre­at­ing things that oth­er orga­ni­za­tions in the Tri­an­gle are…

Mellow Mushroom Durham

Mel­low: This post is less about me show­ing off as a pho­tog­ra­ph­er (yes, we do that, don’t we 😉 and it’s more about just lov­ing Durham. This pho­to is from Oliver’s first trip to Mel­low Mush­room today. We’ve vis­it­ed, (and now live in) Durham, for over a year now, but I…

Country Dance in Chapel Hill

Coun­try Dance: There are many forms of coun­try dance (no, not like coun­try music line danc­ing… this is americana/folk dance). My daugh­ter start­ed with Eng­lish Coun­try dance (think Jane Austen era danc­ing), and we also have expand­ed to con­tra, cir­cle, square, etc. The…

Dummies

Dum­mies Which one isn’t the dum­my? It was fun kick­ing around with @photoc4 snap­ping all the cre­ative Christ­mas trees up for vote in the 2015 Chal­lenge. It’s a great project Durham does every year & gives expo­sure & finan­cial sup­port to local com­mu­ni­ty…

The Cheers of Bagels

The Cheers of Bagels: Yes, we bought a freez­er almost only because of our love of Man­hat­tan Bagel Bak­ery bagels. Sales on organ­ic beef at Earth Fare might have played into the mix as well……

We picked the dog…

We picked the dog… Our first trip to Firewürst and we loved it. Didn’t real­ize it’s a local place— start­ed in Cary. This isn’t a food blog, just fun images we take of things we find nifty in the Tri­an­gle, but the menu was unique and the onion tan­glers and Süße Soße…

People are Kind

Peo­ple are Kind in Durham: By the time I passed the 6th print­out clipped onto a post along sev­er­al miles of the Third Fork Creek Trail, I real­ized I had to take a phone-snap and post this. Where else does some­one go to this much trou­ble to return some­thing valu­able…
