My latest column for The New York Times: The Feelings Buzzing All Around Us
The Feelings Buzzing All Around Us. By ROBB TODD. Human existence depends upon bees, and yet most of us don't take their bumble and buzz seriously. We tend to think of them as tiny robots that can't fly straight, doing hard labor in the flowers at the behest of royalty.

Humanity, Can We All Please Stop Abusing the Word ‘Bespoke’?
Maybe one day everyone will be able to afford a bespoke burger and the word won't arouse such ire as with today's bespoke-wielding scalawags. After all, there might have been a time when someone wh...

My first column in The New York Times International Weekly http://nytweekly.com/columns/lensarchives/04-08-16/
Erased Memories, Without the Roman Soldiers. By ROBB TODD. In the digital age, it might be hard to appreciate — or cringe at — the brutality of Roman soldiers chiseling faces off statues to erase people from history. This was called damnatio memoriae, and it means “condemnation of memory.

So true! I first realized this when a captured, yet still missed an
amazing sunset at Fort Fisher. There is and was such a large part of me
that wishes I would have simply set quietly and laid my camera beside me to
fully capture that sunset. The more time I spent behind my camera
capturing special moments of my daughter, the more I realized I was missing
them too. We get lost behind the camera and somewhat disconnected of the
reality around us. It's an escape from reality and the reality is life
isn't a snapshot, or is it?

Introduction
I am a writer in New York City. I have lived all over the country, and was lucky enough to live in Hawaii twice. I also lived in Texas twice. And North Carolina twice. Actually, this is my second stop in New York, too, so I guess I just do not do things right the first time. I spent most of my career working for newspapers, but happily left for the Interwebs. I like it here.
