One of the things I’ve been looking forward to most on this roadtrip are random turn-offs in the middle of nowhere. How often is it that you get to pull off at a little town of <1,000 people to chat with locals and learn some history? Erin & I had

Same City, Different Vantage Point

I felt like the view from the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence deserved it’s own post, so you get two gems for the price of one this week. Consider it in the spirit of #FlashbackFriday! Situated at the heart of the city, this ancient fortress/ palace/ guard-tower not only has incredible

Florence (And The Machine)

This completely unrelated headline sounded clever a year ago when I first thought of it, but now I’m just eager to share some flicks from quite possibly my favorite city in Italy. Thanks to my amazing hosts, the Scarpellis (who just welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world… congrats

2014 Unpublished

Of the 300 GBs of photos I took in 2014, only 3 GBs of those ever made it to Fatlace; the others may have gotten some love on Instagram or even lost while waiting for publication, releases, etc….so here’s to the ones that never made it! Earlier this month, we

Jeff Koons @ the Whitney – warning explicit material

Just in case you missed the amazing Jeff Koons exhibit at the Whitney museum in NYC – here is a bit of it.   I had the opportunity to see this exhibit.  I waited in line in the rain.  They told me there was no good time to go and
