a new leaf.

I’ll admit, I’ve been a bad blogger this month. But, I have a good excuse! Three weeks ago I made a big change and moved from Durham, NC to Cambridge, MA. Then just days after the move I jetted off to spend two weeks traveling around Costa Rica & Panama.

I have two semi-regular clients now, and enough work to last me several months, but it’s kind of scary to only be able to plan a couple months in advance. But also quite liberating.

Surprise! I found some cool shit.


These images are all from the Boston Mob flickr pool (users credited by rolling over images) and are all Boston. Since I am now living in the all powerful, all knowing, O.G. “New England”-I figure I better clean up my attitude. Somewhat. These images got me excited to discover yet another new city’s underbelly. It’s winding streets, ethnic food carts and stupid bridges. Whatchoo got Beantown?
