How to grow a beard

All you have to do, apparently, is walk across China. That’s what Christopher Rehage did, photographing himself every single day, from the moment he shaved his head and beard at the beginning to a year later when he did it again. It’s almost as if you can see the wisdom being added to his face as he treks across deserts and mountains and villages.

Really cool stuff.

167th Street

Tonight, I got home from work about 40 minutes before Alli was scheduled to be home from dance practice. I grabbed my camera and headed out, wanting to capture some pictures that were within about a mile of my house. I live on the edge of the metro (on the edge of civilization, really) and I wanted to get out and capture some of that beauty.

I got a 50mm f1.4 lens for my camera for Christmas and I love the pictures that it takes. You can see the whole set on Flickr.
