A new photo project, documenting abandoned and close to the public storefronts.

When plants escape


My husband and I started a new blog. Submissions welcome!

Mae a day

Mae, every day, on film – yes, I’m biased.

Plants and animals

My new favourite Tumblr blog (despite not being a cat person).


Every reform movement has a lunatic fringe.

Hipster Branding

Okay, this makes it even funnier/sadder. Just revisted this tumblr that made the rounds a while back and am now not quite sure which came first. Jay, are you nuts, or are the hipsters having some fun?

Photos I Wish I Had Taken

Tumblr by design director Rion Nakaya.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
