On a trip to San Francisco this week, I deliberately booked my stay at a specific hotel that stands directly across the street from this establishment. I'd photographed it before, but because of the neon sign, its "house of" spirit is best captured at night, and I only have an... Continue reading

So... Work on HouseOfBlank.com has driven me to start tearing apart and rebuilding CakeOrPie.com. I'm still thinking that cool for the 40-something guy might be a good angle. After all, both Voltron and Thundercats are back on the air in... Continue reading

So where do we go from here? Well... First, let me start of by saying that I'm thrilled by the initial response to these shots Jamie and I have been saving up over the years for our "House of" effort (blogs didn't really exist when we started, so the original... Continue reading

At 9:05 AM, Jamie was outside House of Knowledge in Brooklyn. At 11:42 AM, she and I almost completely passed House of Tires & Auto Repairs (est. 1959) in beautiful Levittown, NY. I pulled over and took a shot or two from the far side of the busy Long Island... Continue reading

No, it's not House of Pies -- strangely, our photo of that great Los Angeles landmark (and my wonderful wife) seems to have gone missing in the ol' iPhoto library -- but it is one of our original "house of" inspirations. It's not just Chan Dara... It's the House of... Continue reading

In December 2003, Jamie and I were passing through Oakdale, CA and couldn't help but spot this beautiful "house of." A majestic House of Beef -- so glorious, we had to pull off the main road onto the side street and get the shot. Quite pleased with ourselves, we walked... Continue reading

My wife (Jamie) and I liked to take road trip vacations -- at least we did in the years BK (before kids). For our one-year anniversary, back in 2002, we took one such road trip into Arizona and found ourselves at that cultural Mecca, Lake Havasu City, AZ. While amusing... Continue reading
