    i just finished scrolling through my iphoto additions over the past year.
    here's two thousand and eight in a nutshell (some of these are pretty random but fortunately there is no documentation of our post-review debauchery)

    measuring on campus in the snow


    the site of our spring studio intervention, at audubon terrace

    a nighttime view of the lipstick building, from outside the pig 'n whistle

Since i haven't yet had... View full entry
