Field Report: The Spectators

May 15, 2012The Field Report

On Friday I looked out the window to find that our baby birds had discovered the world beyond the rim of their nest. They were looking around like it was entertainment…they also kind of remind me of those two old guys up in the balcony on the Muppet Show. It was totally fascinating to see … Read More

Field Report: Baby bird food coma

May 8, 2012Berlin, The Field Report

Does it make me some kinda nutjob if I post about pigeons multiple times in a row? Because I’ll be honest, I check on them like 50 times a day. I don’t mean to go all National Geographic on you or do some kind of bait-and-switch from photo blog to some weirdo baby/pigeon blog thing. … Read More

Field Report: Baby birds

May 4, 2012The Field Report

We’ve got baby pigeon snuggling happening here, people! They hatched in the night and were on their own for about an hour this morning—there is a lot of cuteness in that little flower pot. They are like little bobbleheads in there. I had to film it and that prompted me to make a little mini … Read More

Field Report 035: Beach Picnic

December 8, 2011The Field Report, Travel, Travel Topics

By Rebecca San Francisco, California Slowing down a bit these last few days. Making a habit of lunching in the sand, driving on tiny roads surrounded by big trees, and taking windy roads to the coast. Our twilight drive down Highway 1 last night was spectacular. Got into SFO around 10pm.

Field Report 034: The Little Things

November 11, 2011The Field Report, Travel, Travel Topics

by Rebecca This is not a forever farewell. But we will be gone from Berlin long enough that it is a significant good-bye. Even though Berlin has been my home for over three years, I sometimes have this feeling that if I leave I might not find my way back. And there were certainly times … Read More

Field Report 033: Berlin Flora

October 24, 2011Berlin, The Field Report

by Rebecca and Anthony Basically, anything green that grows in Berlin is playing an every-man-for-himself game. Are you a delicate and many-leaved weed with tiny white flowers, a hearty disposition, and a fondness for very parched soil? That dirt around that tree where dogs and people like to whiz would be an awesome home for … Read More

Field Report 031: Favorites

October 4, 2011The Field Report, Travel

We had a conversation about fields the other day because hey I’m still roaming these parts that I grew up in and in these parts fields are everywhere. The conversation got me thinking about a lot of things pertaining to fields and open spaces and what’s on the other side of open spaces and how … Read More

Field Report 027: Kjosk & Liepnitzsee

August 31, 2011Berlin, The Field Report

The week started at the riverside Kiki Blofeld, for which I have no video. I think this had something to do with the place feeling a little bit deflated; things are changing—the most glaring evidence being the view across the river, where the opposite beach bar had been razed. It sat silently in a sad … Read More

Field Report 025: The Double Rainbow

August 15, 2011Berlin, The Field Report

Not too much going on at the office this week in terms of the Report. This is what I’ve got: -Homogenous campaign posters going up all over town featuring a large mug shots of the candidates -Julian at the Yes Bar giving me a lesson on how to properly balance and relax on his bar’s … Read More
