Who knew that living alone was so difficult… and yet so delightful? I’ve only been alone for three days, but I can already tell that I love it, if only for lack of distraction and the complete autonomy. Working from a sun room with seven windows (six facing the ocean) obviously helps matters enormously, though. Here’s a video walkthrough of my apartment: And here’s a video of the sunset from Asbury Park last night (or maybe the night before): Except…

Again, as I write this, I am on a plane — but this time I am flying from Los Angeles to Newark, New Jersey. By the time I post this I’ll be at my ocean-front apartment in Ocean Grove. I’ll upload some photos from the wrap-around deck once I get everything set up. [The photo above is the Pacific Ocean — I was there this morning… and now I’m on the Atlantic Ocean; cool huh? The photo is awesome for…

Berlin is not an exciting city — but at the same time, you’d be hard stretched to find a city that’s nicer than Berlin — or indeed, a city with more modern history than fair Berlin. Berlin was completely leveled in World War 2 by the Allies, and for some 30 years after that it was split down the middle by ideological differences — and the Berlin Wall.

I ain’t dead! An American once scolded me for using “ain’t”, actually. The cheek of it. I had actually hoped to update this blog a couple of weeks ago, before it became a whole month since the last update, but I failed. Fortunately, that’s about the only thing that I’ve failed in recent history, so I guess that’s OK. Actually, I failed my 365 photography project — well, I failed to complete it. The undertaking itself was far from a…

In New York, I stayed at a hotel called Hotel Roger William… but they like to call themselves ‘The Roger’. Does American English not contain the phrase ‘to roger’? Anyway, no — I didn’t manager to roger in the Roger — but hopefully next time! The trip to Ziff Davis HQ was a lot of fun! And a big success! I didn’t sleep very well — damn jet lag — but I slept for 12 hours last night (I got…

It’s actually been so long since I last uploaded a photo that I’ve forgotten how to use Photoshop! How embarrassing. (Not that I edit my photos much, but…) I’m still alive, but busy sinking my teeth into my new position at Ziff Davis. The weather is still really lovely, though — it has rained once in the last month, I think — so maybe, if I can get into the swing of things, I can start posting photos semi-regularly again……
