I'm no fan of hunting, but this Paris museum - Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature (or Museum of Hunting and Nature) - is fascinating. The juxtaposition of an ultra-sophisticated and seemingly civilized setting with the stuffed deer, bears, and well, rather disturbing paintings, is unlike anything I've seen in any other museum. Well worth a visit, unless you really can't stomach anything related to hunting.

North Beach to Chinatown

When I visit San Francisco, I always make sure to visit North Beach so that I can pop into City Lights Bookstore and Caffe Trieste: a couple of San Francisco landmarks. Adjacent to Chinatown, it always makes for a wonderful walk and a fascinating Italo-Chinese visual mashup.

Deco Delights

I could go back to San Francisco just to go on an Art Deco detail hunt. 

BTW, I was honored to find out that this blog was featured on Photography Degree's list of 100 must-see photography sites. Eye Poetry is third under the Miscellaneous category.

The Streets of San Francisco

Are there any city streets finer than those of San Francisco? I think not. What a thrill to turn a corner and to not see the street below you, having to trust that it's actually there to catch you. The first time I found one (I believe it was at California and Jones Streets), I immediately drove around the block and did it again about five times in a row. If you're in need of a San Francisco fix, here are some shows and movies that are set in this great city:

For the past few days, the approach of winter has become more palpable. Gloves and chunky scarves are needed when going out. Snowflakes float through the air, giving a preview of the blizzards to come. Sometimes a wind passes right through you that elicits a shiver from deep within. I both dread winter (as they are so long and can be quite severe where I live) and look forward to it, as it can be so very beautiful when all is covered in white.

P.S. If you didn't see my announcement on Facebook, I'm having a 25% off sale on iPhone 4 cases until November 13. You can find them here. I hope to have iPhone 5 cases in my shop soon.
