Cannon Beach is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist destinations. At least in the summer and when the weather is mild. As soon as I saw the iconic haystack rocks in other people’s images, I knew that we just had to check it out. Especially since Microsoft uses it as one of their default background pictures (Have you ever noticed? There are some great Milky Way samples, too, as I found out the other day). Read More »
After seeing the stunning Multnomah Falls, we made our way past Portland again and drove further west. Our almost three-hour-long ride took us all the way to the coast-side – a part my friend had been longing to see for a very long time. Read More »
Situated some short 45 minutes outside of Portland you can find a true natural wonder: The largest waterfalls in Oregon state and the second largest waterfalls of the entire country! The Multnomah Falls are two waterfalls Read More »
Our first impressions of Portland were quite muddled, as we arrived late at night. My friend and I took the MAX Light Rail from the airport and then decided on taking an Uber to our AirBnB, as busses didn’t seem to run as frequent anymore after 10pm on a weekday. Ironically, our AirBnB was in the Southeast of Portland, in a neighborhood called BrooklynRead More »
I am picking up right where I left off back in November. After exploring San Diego, it was time to move on to Oregon. Last year was the very first time I had been to the third state on the West Coast. Although I had been yearning to go for so long, I only managed to do so it in 2016. Read More »
This weekend we have entered a new moon. It has been quite a magical time already for those who have chosen to remain positive during the past few weeks. I for one have made more sales from some recent photography products (my calendar and some of my pictures I’ve put up on an online art gallery), than I had initially anticipated and also expected. Or perhaps I have just been waiting on it all along and am now ready to reap the benefits. Read More »
Today I am throwing it back to happier times, because some people really believe that times back then (be it the summer or last year or a decade ago) were so much happier than they were now. This image was taken in late August at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. What a short but extremely long 4 1/2 months it’s been…Read More »
Travel Fever – we all know what it feels like. And what better way to cure it than to start booking away a few trips here and there? This year I am planning on taking as much if not more vacation as I did in the previous year Read More »
This past weekend has been quite cultural in many aspects: From exhibitions over a Broadway Show to exploring a whole new culture – I feel January has been quite pleasing in every aspect imaginable so far. Read More »
We are halfway through January on this beautiful weekend day. How have you guys been experiencing the brand-new year of 2017 so far?
I am off tomorrow thanks to Martin Luther King Day (a floating holiday in the US). So today is practically my Saturday, although it feels like quite a peaceful and productive Sunday, too. I managed to sleep in a bit and wake up refreshed. Read More »
Today I went to a magical exhibition at the New Museum. One of those once-in-a-while moments that kind of take your breath away without you really knowing why. Pipilotti Rist’sPixel Forest has been on display in the Lower East Side since October 26th of last year. Spread across the three main floors of the museum, she features a quite magical artistic composition of art installations made of video projections, curtains and more. Read More »
Its’ the last day of the year 2016 and you know what that means: Time for the Year in Review!
This year has been certainly one of a kind (well, aren’t they all, the years?!). It seems that the continuous line of change, which has been a very strong part of my life since 2014 perhaps, is slowly but surely progressing. Change – in every way possible – I feel that is the code word of 2016, if any. Read More »
