Toronto had it’s annual Nuit Blanche, and miniature chairs were present.
Happy birthday dad!!
This was taken as St. Peter’s square – parents hovering nearby and taking their own photographs and making their own readings and re-readings from the story books. The entire bookend to the Italy trip that allowed me to spend time with my parents was a unique, and awesome, and amazing experience. Highlight (well, one of – there is no single BEST moment) was finishing the 3rd (ahem) bottle (ahem) of wine (ahhh, Montepulciano!) with dad on the empty square of a small town and talking about life, universe, everything.
Pa, you’re awesome, now help me out with this math problem….
Eames in the basement of Vatican. (Thanks to Dad, whose birthday is in a week, for watching my back while I was setting and shooting this. It’s much easier to crawl around the floor of anywhere when you have someone holding the equipment and jackets and making sure no one steps on you!)

The shadows of Colliseum (waiting before a tour). Posed on one of the old rocks. Worry not! I didn’t cause any more damage than 1500 years of taking it apart didOtherwise this particular ex-pillar was used as seating. It blows my mind that some things are so eternal. I hope the idea of a specific design could last as long as a physical object.
