Photos from Summer

Matty soaking up twilight.

Rob heading to a party, demonstrating how win friends.

Mildly illegal games on the 11th floor roof.

Me on Independence Day, wearing appropriate colors.

Asparagus dog.

Killer sunsets. (This photo is totally un-retouched; it’s actually that pretty.)

Fireworks on the fourth of July.

A local bar offers deep-fried brussels sprouts. They are amazing.

Waffles with strawberry butter.

Pitchers of cheap beer.

Party lights. (If you click on this photo, you can see it at full size and make it your desktop background. That’s what I did.)

    Can you tell me exactly where those brussel sprouts are? I would like to eat them.

    Wing Bar! Aside from these and the wings, it’s the only thing on the menu worth eating.
    275 Smith St (between Degraw St & Sackett St)

    Asparagus Dog?!? Le Sigh. My favorite picture is the smiling dog. I love smiling dogs.

    Your photos, as usual, are completely delightful!
    But I have to say this one thing and hope that I don’t sound too soapbox-y:
    I <3 cheap beer. Really. It's one of my favorite things in the whole world. But personally, I boycott Coors beers because of Coors' political ideology. They're super right-wing, and super anti-gay. 🙁
    I know that we all do what we can, and we can't all do *everything*. And sometimes, you've really just gotta make the choice on what's important, and when it becomes overwhelming. So sometimes we all do things that we "disagree" with because shit! It's just easier. But we also sometimes make uninformed choices that would perhaps be different if we had a more whole understanding. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I know that you're pro-gay-rights, but I wasn't sure if you chose to drink Coors because it's easier or just because you didn't know of their evil-ness.
