This is at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA.
So like, the engineers at Google, (do they call them “googleers” or something?) do this prank stuff with the flamingos. They have this t-rex just right outside their visitor center (I’m sure it’s not a metaphor) and they just cover that thing with them or something. I can’t remember the exact details. I had a tour like two years ago, and honestly I was “and guest” with my friend who was invited to give a speech to the googleers. He had edited the book “Inception and Philosophy.” It was a good talk. Lots of people were in there listening while working on their laptops. Some of them were dressed in work out clothes and had plates of salad and carrots.They came in and sat down too. My friend was in a three piece suit and I was in that “California dress up/dress down” suit with blue jeans thing. So we were all of us bridging the gap between formal and casual.
I kept taking my phone out and making small thirty second videos. The googleers would side eye the shit out of me every time I did.
Shit. Google has my name now. Like for real official, not just in their normal spying.
(Food is overrated by the way. It’s like classy cafeteria food but it’s not Gordon Ramsey. Hate to break it to the world.)
The Tealeaves - Unspoken
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life - and travel - leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks - on your body or on your heart - are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.
Guess what! My friends Nick, Megan and Tom have released their debut EP! These 3 lovely people started out playing at the Avo’s Open Mic where I was taking photos last year. For the first couple of shows I photographed, they didn’t even have a name yet, so it’s fun to see them emerging officially…
Horse Feathers - Curs in the Weeds
Where had you gone?
Where had you been?
It’s a heartbreaking story told in just six pictures.
After a fire destroyed nine houses on one block of Garland Street in Detroit, the Detroit News looked back to tell the block’s story. While their reporting went back nearly a century, the images only need to go back seven years to make an impact.
