What Kind Of People?
April 2, 2019

Murphy and I spend much time on the Purple People Bridge. It is a quick walk to all the amenities at Newport On The Levee. But of all the times we have traveled that road, the question begs, What Kind Of People? Murphy says he has never seen or smelled any purple folks on the bridge, so why is it called that? Formally known as the Newport Southbank Bridge, this former railroad bridge opened in 1872. After years of neglect, it was restored in 2001,...

Murphy and I opted to remain landlubbers today, along with my Photographer friend Aly, canvassing the riverfront looking for unique ways to tell this story through the lens. Murphy's keen eye spotted more than a few canine...

July 30, 2018

Dancing In The Moonlight - A Supernatural Delight On July 27th 2018, in what was deemed the longest lunar eclipse of the 21st century, Murphy and I were Dancing In The Moonlight. And although, it was surely a fine and natural sight, we could not see the eclipse from our vantage point in the mid-western section of the United States. It was, however, a gorgeous full moon and we managed to capture a few snaps of Yeatman's Cove Park bathed in...
