Uke Group Portrait for Smiley Pete Publications

One of my favorite portraits in recent memory — partially because I managed to art direct and shoot the portrait … while also being in the portrait (see the remote in my left hand?)


David Quisenberry (center) started the Lexingtones Ukulele Group on Facebook to find other interested ukulele players. The group now practices about once a week. PHOTO BY MICK JEFFRIES

Lexingtones Ukulele Group Portrait

for Chevy Chaser Magazine.

Alert viewers will notice that I'm remotely firing the frame, after having posed the group and jumped into the frame. (I could have Photoshopped out the remote, but I like it better leaving it in the frame.)

All the email addresses I knew in 1989. All six.

A long time ago, before Facebook, before the Web, before America Online (whatever that was), almost nobody had email. Here's the Rolodex (what?!) card on which I kept my friends who had email. This was probably 1989. Exciting times. Remember these addie's, friends? (not tagged: Robin Jones, who first showed me the World Wide Web, and Jamie Tittle who was always ahead of everybody. I can't place the addy in the lower right corner)

#HERAKUT no. 2 #lexky #PRHBTN Lime & 6th! GO SEE IT!

the lexington visit by German muralists Herakut has become the social event of the week. It's amazing that they get any paint up for all the visiting that goes on. :-)

Another Moment from the Golden Age of Cell Phone Videography

What's so hilarious about an iPhone app (8mm) that makes crappy, time-worn "home movies?" A lot, it turns out. (Don't forget, Libby Lee fans — most baby content now syndicates directly to her blog, You and Me and Libby Lee)

Remembering Jamie: Five Years Later

Jamie Tittle
Originally uploaded by timfur

It still bothers me that the world is not longer witnessed by Jamie Tittle, who was one of its greatest observers, practitioners, and hackers.

I, too, think about Jamie regularly and still — five years after his departure from this dimensional plane — I'm stuck with the same sentiment: "I can't believe he's gone." As wonderful as my world is, as rich as it is, it would be more so with Jamie in it. I think of all the things that JAMIE would appreciate like nobody else that I know — quirky musical things, odd design things, computers things that I'm not smart enough to understand… books that are over my head… and things — so many things — that it simply wouldn't have occurred to me to observe without him directing my attention and noting with with a Zen glee:"How cool." I think about his impish giggle, his endless curiosity, his natural desire to share all he knew with those who were interested … and not begrudge those who weren't.

There are nearly a hundred photos up that were shared by Jamie's friends during that time — the saddest time — when we lost Jamie.

It's time to look through them for reminders of the happiness he channeled so uniquely.

— With special regard for Kirby Gann and Merrill Simmons —

G. Phillip & Loris Evelyn

though it's merely for.a church directory, this is the first formal, well-considered portrait I've ever shot and edited exclusively on my iPhone. Cool.

The Lolliloo Sling Thing #cocktail

Original summer cocktail named for its recipient — and barkeep's bestest buddy. its a "sling," in spirit — bittered & sweetened, and served tall — but may technically not qualify. It does qualify, however, as absolutely refreshing — just like its namesake.


1 1/2 oz. Aperol (or Campari)
2 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. ginger syrup (homemade)

Shake vigorously with ice, then pour into iced highball glass and top with fresh club soda, and a splash of orange juice (optional). Garnish passionately.
