That one time when my photo was published in a German article on the value of street trees.

I have no idea what this article says, but when I was being asked permission to use the photo it was explained like this –

“I am an expert and consultant for urban vegetation and currently I am writing an article with the topic “the value of (street) trees”. Not rocket science at all :) and the journal circulation is not too large (about 15.000 copies), but I see a chance to push the things here a little bit further. Since public relations work for trees is not very common in Europe, I want to present (among others) the concept behind those very popular “arbor days” that you do have in the U.S.”

My photo is on the top of page 40. This is the post where the photograph came from.

Office Secret Santa Gift Exchange and Party

December 19th, 2014 · No Comments


This year Meenasha took over the coordination of the office secret santa gift exchange and party. It’s grown so much since our first exchange in 2012. SO fun! I was excited to participate, since I missed out last year when I was on maternity leave.

I got Ashley’s name and I don’t know her that well, so I did “drive bys” down her desk aisle to check out her desk and stalked her social media accounts online. I ended up getting her a Star Wars moleskin (based on her posting the new Star Wars movie teaser trailer and also posting something on Field Notes), a Japanese pen, a santa spatula (because she said online that she bakes) and an Intelligentsia gift card (because she had a mug on her desk). She said it was perfect and was really surprised!!

My secret santa, Laura, knew I like to take photos because we were on an office photography committee together a few years ago. She also guessed correctly that I don’t have much time to fiddle with my DSLR camera lately, so she got me a selfie remote for my iPhone and also a telephoto lens that attaches to my iPhone. Awesome. I’ve been having fun especially with the remote.

Jeremy got a Bears chip and dip set and guessed that I gave it to him… but come on! I don’t spend my money on Bears merchandise!! What a fun office event. Can’t wait til next year!
