Photograph 27: Stock

Stock makes me think of many things.  Cooking stock, financials, farm animals, and some other random yet unimpressive items.  I could elaborate on cooking stock, but that would be a food-related rant that could possibly go on for days.  The main thought when seeing the New York Stock Exchange is the complexity of stock and financials.  […]

Photograph 26: Seasons

Season changes are sometimes welcomed events, and others dreaded.  Living in the south, the onset of spring only reminds residents that a long and horribly miserable summer is once again upon us.  It seems we really only have 2 seasons: an incredibly cold winter with the risk of freezing pipes or a humid, sweltering summer that […]

Photograph 25: Pink

I have never really cared for the color pink.  I don’t know if it is some sort of rebellion against the stereotypical “girly” color as I grew up pretty tomboyish or just never liked the color in particular.  Through the teen years, the alternative rock phase was pretty predominant and I wore mostly black for […]

Photograph 22: Watercress

I remember watching a movie scene where a fancy lunch was taking place outside.  The dish that was served was Cream of Watercress, which looked like a soup.  This puzzled me; what is watercress?    Turns out it’s just lettuce!  Okay, a fancy lettuce rich in vitamins and a history dating back centuries: “…the French are noted […]

Photograph 21: Isolation

Island to most people conjures thoughts of Gilligan or no electricity.  The ideas can be solitary and minimalistic, or on a grand Caribbean scale and lavish.  I have not traveled much outside of my country, but feel fortunate to have been to so many places inside of it.  I took the above photograph on an island […]
