As I’m sure you’ve noticed things have been awfully quiet around here for the last two months. Most of January I was busy with a move, from San Francisco to Chicago. Unfortunately the foundation that was supporting my work at the California Academy of Sciences had some tough financial calls to make and my position was discontinued. Additional layoffs at the CAS only meant there wasn’t any way for me to stay at the museum – such is the ephemeral world of research funding. I’ll miss the amazing friends that I made and the beautiful California landscape, four years sure flies by in a flash. Without a doubt I’ll find something in the not too distant future (if you know of anything let me know!). In the meantime I can focus on experimenting with my photo gear and getting those manuscripts done that have been hanging around for far too long.
Spring/tornado season is just around the corner here in Chicagoland and I think it’s safe to say scenes like this are a thing of the past. Stay tuned for regular updates, new photographs, and where I might be moving to next!
