interesting article from the atlantic, found just after my wife and i talk about where we want to live, and what we value in our quality of life.
The recession's aftermath will give birth to mega-cities, as families and businesses come in from the foreclosed suburbs

On a recent photography shoot around Boston and Cambridge, my directive was to shoot architectural court-like buildings. These photographs will help illustrate an upcoming curriculum I'm designing about forming Mental Health Court teams. Find out more at the http://consensusproject.org/

Here's a new directive, Jase - "you will share with steven samra as many cool tips and techniques about photography as you possibly can, especially when it comes to landscape and outdoor photos."
