As seen on…

I took this last fall. I couldn’t resist. I hope for this level of companionship at their age. What I couldn’t capture was how they were smiling and leaning on each other as they continued to hold hands while walking down the street.

The Rise of Internet Media Houses

One of the most talked about shows right now is House of Cards, which is a Netflix original (well, actually we stole it from England like most of our other good shows) and to finally have a show that’s premium channel (HBO, Starz) quality but at the flat rate of your Netflix subscription is rewarding….

Beauty of Silence
