le pamplemoussier
20; Boston, MA.

This blog is not about mice- or pamples, whatever they are. "Le pamplemoussier" is French for "the grapefruit tree". It's just a word I like. I also like photography, and this is where you can follow my exploration of it!

The links below will direct you to different sections.

All photos on this blog were taken by me.

The sun in Boston! (posted on a rainy day..)

This was one of my favorite spots to pass by while walking to work in the summer. Sunflowers, marigolds, Queen Anne’s lace…all those flowers on a quiet morning could really make your day!

French brownies by Cafe Madeleine.
A large, dense, cocoa-dusted brownie with walnuts. I visited Cafe Madeleine and took one of these home: photographed it, devoured it, then wished for more! This is my first experiment accompanying photos with text.

Coni Porter- CO2 Cubed: Choose to Change (2014)

Walking through the Back Bay Fens, you’ll happen upon a strange but fantastical tree adorned with what looks like hovering sugar cubes. Although whimsy, it’s in fact a public art installation project called CrossRoads, designed to educate the public about climate change and sustainable living. In Coni Porter’s project, the cubes are a visual representation of how much carbon dioxide the average American releases in a day. (Except that the cubes would each be 2’ x 2’ x 2’).

Meet Neptune, my Betta splendens! His favorite thing is to wiggle around and hide under his leaf hammock. My favorite thing is his perpetual frowny face.

America in Bloom, a non-profit organization dedicated to environmental and educational development, is having their annual AIB Symposium on October 2-4 of this year. 
Last month, I submitted a portfolio of 18 photos to represent Boston, hoping to earn a spot in the symposium’s display and promote Boston as “America’s Prettiest City”. I was recently notified via snail-mail that it’s true: I’m being exhibited! Winners for the contest- three for each category of small, medium, and large city- will be announced Oct. 2, so wish me luck! :) Above is a section of the symposium’s brochure, which can be found on AIB’s website.

Mini Blueberry Pastry, from the Paris Baguette bakery in H-mart!
These tasted wonderful and were so delicately made: crisp, flaky pastry with creamy custard filling, and exactly seven blueberries each.
