New Tattoos.


The Steve Irwin.

One of my best friends, Chad, has been at sea with Sea Shepherds for the past seven months. His ship, the Steve Irwin, is making a brief stop here in NYC before their Mediterranean campaign. Currently docked at Pier 59, I had the opportunity of taking a tour of the ship.
Please visit www.seashepherd.org to learn more about this amazing organization.

In Twin Peaks

I've been obsessed with Twin Peaks for years now, and an exhaustive search on the internet of images from the show has been a disappointment- until I came across www.intwinpeaks.com. I am going to be glued to my computer for the next few days searching through this website. The following are some of my favorite images from the first few episodes.










The following is an excerpt from the fellow who created this vast archive:

"I've been captivated by the world of Twin Peaks since it first aired in April, 1990. In the years since the series aired, I've become increasingly fascinated by the filming locations used in the show. Researching, discovering, investigating and analyzing the sites from both the series and Fire Walk With Me has become, for me, a rewarding and enduring passion; one which has allowed the story of Twin Peaks to continue to unfold and blossom in my mind, even though the show ended some 20 years ago! One of the most compelling things about seeing the locations in person is to discover how some of them have changed over the years. What's the same? What did they alter for the shoot? What was it about this spot that seemed right for the show? (Or wrong, as is sometimes the case.) But what really thrills me and keeps me going back for more are the rare, precious moments when I'm standing there at a location and I'm deeply hit by the Twin Peaks atmosphere –that undeniable moody allure of, say, the mist rolling over the mountains, a traffic light rocking in the breeze or the sound, sights and scents of Douglas Firs rustling in the wind. Since 2002, I've traveled to Washington State and Southern California to photograph as many of the filming sites as I've been able to find. In addition to my own exhaustive research and sleuthing, many friends and acquaintances have helped me greatly in my continuing quest to find and photograph all the locations you see on this site –and more to come!
Thanks to them I'm able to share all this with you.


I hope you enjoy this tour.

The Field House, Seattle, WA.








"The Field House is reminiscent of general stores that were once at the heart of rural towns across America. Its shelves are stocked with a wide variety of merchandise, including classic work wear, vintage goods, basic groceries and candies, flowers, and perfumes and candles. It captures the history, geography, and folklore of times past, when goods were less disposable and had more meaning, a time when people canned their own food and took a moment to converse with strangers. It is perhaps Blackbird's most personal store, as it is inspired by owner Nicole Miller’s eccentric Pacific Northwest family and her desire to get back to basics."
