Will Simmons and The Upholsterers

How I spent Saturday: Watching crime shows, taking a long nap, and then waking to do a band photo shoot in the North Side. Along the way we saw a fist fight on the corner of 40th and Butler streets, talked about the weather and I took mental note of all the places along the way for future photo stories (under a rail bridge, an empty storefront in Lawrenceville, an empty row of houses along Penn – must write the rest of these later before I forget). I always get a little nervous before doing a photo shoot with other people, but these boys were so easy and fun to work with that I forgot pretty quickly I was nervous at all. facebook.com/upholsterers

The Mattress Factory

One of my dearest friends came all the way from Boston to visit me over my birthday weekend (Month? Usually it’s a 30-day celebration!), which gave me the opportunity to play tourist in my city. I took D to the Mattress Factory, an installation museum in the North Side. We mostly talked (and boy, can we talk a lot) and then allowed ourselves quiet when taking photos. It reminded me of my grad school days when I should have written stories, but instead, went out on photo shoots with Danny. I hold him responsible for giving me the camera bug (for which, Daniel, I am ever grateful).
