Window shopping

Stopped down to visit my friend Brown at the Rookwood Store in OTR. I’ve got my eye on some ceramic bears because I need more things to Swiffer® in my life. My Mother Tattoo by Tattly, as seen on the shelves of MiCA! I’m not sure what this place is, but I loved their window […]

FotoFocus Biennial

Soapbox: I’m not, however, sold on those new bike lanes on Columbia Parkway. They’re inconsistent and I feel they […]
