on assignment


There is pleasure in being sent on assignment to a place far from home, a new city with new places to discover and people to meet. But there is pleasure, too, on being on assignment in your own city — in my case, Barcelona. This (cold) morning shooting in a favorite bar. January 16th, 2012. © Jeff Koehler

The Pleasures of a Great Novel


An ode to the pleasures of a good book and reading long into the night. Or of being eight and reading late — very late — under a mosquito net in a foreign place. (In this case, along the Mekong in northern Thailand.) August 2012. © Jeff Koehler.

found in the closet


The things that my kids discover in the back of their grandparents’ closets or storage spaces is often thrilling to them, and they bring these items home with the same passion that their mother and her sisters surely once displayed for the objects decades before. This perfectly-preserved microscope kit (c. 1971) that came in the door yesterday is no different. Now where to find new glass slides? November 6, 2012. © Jeff Koehler.

Sant Joan


Celebrating this nit de foc (night of fire) with cava and traditional coca de llardons… a flaky puff pastry flat bread with sugar, pine nuts and crunchy fried pork skin.
