I’m almost a bit embarrassed to post the photo of this private moment between two Carolina Green Anole lizards on my back patio.

Someone recently asked me what's the most direct, organic, personal thing that I can put into words in two seconds, knowing my weak spot for film photography.In about one, my mind stalled so I could deliver the answer to a question I've been actually asking myself for so long that I forgot the A's and Z's of it.INSTANT!Yes, INSTANT, that tiny thing, both a photo and object, usually known as Polaroid.I can't think of anything more personal than this. (There are... continue reading

Maaan, I don't know about you but I love bacon. A bit smoked, a bit crispy, with that gorgeous sound it makes in the pan, bacon has driven many people crazy since the first time it was introduced in the cookery. Now, I know that many nutritionists and doctors are preaching that bacon is unhealthy, but there's this little voice in me that tells me these:1. The asparagus/avocado/green beans/pimientos I'm eating tastes better if it's wrapped in bacon slice. 2. The pea/pumpkin/beans/corn... continue reading

As we’re celebrating World Photography Day on August 19, I took a minute to review our relationship and remember how much joy it brought into my life.I love photography because it brought me my first job, as a photojournalist for a local daily newspaper in my hometown, Galati.
