Same-Side Seating or Opposite Preferred

I came across this couple at Reuben’s Burger Bistro in Boulder, sharing a dessert from the same side of the table. I told them I once saw a 70-year-old couple at a restaurant seated together. (The older couple told me they’ve done it their whole life.)

Yet, I know other couples that feel odd, or embarrassed, to sit on one side.  Wondering which side most fall on.

SimBLISSity, The Tiny Home Company

I AM BOULDER BUSINESS | SimBLISSity Tiny Homes on Wheels | Lyons CO | 303.885.5991

Byron Fears and his wife, Dot, just moved their tiny house construction business two weeks ago into the building where a boat company used to be, out on Highway 66, just east of the town of Lyons.  And already you can see the tiny houses are going up.

His crew is working on six houses at the moment, and Bryon said on average it takes about three months to complete a home, though one could be built in six weeks if they were only working on a single construction.

They are high-quality construction, and bigger than most of the tiny houses you see.  Byron said their 24-foot option sells for $65-85k, and they are comfortable for a couple, not just someone living alone.

“They’re movable, but they’re not RVs.  Most folks put them on a piece of land and stay put for a while,” Bryon said.  “I know someone who lived in one in Nova Scotia, Alaska and here in Colorado.”

The company has been featured on TV on Tiny House Hunters, and Tiny House, Big Living.  Perhaps they’re working on your next dream house that’s both comfortable (they have tiled bathrooms and propane fireplaces) and transportable.

Jammin’ & Singin’ at 300 Suns

I AM BOULDER BUSINESS | 300 Suns Brewing, 335 1st Ave., Unit C · Longmont, CO · 720.442.8292

There are a lot of guitars and other acoustic instruments filling the room with musical tones.  Ukuleles, mandolins, drums, banjos, an old brown jug, even a washtub bass, which was remarkably well played!

300 Suns Brewing hosts the jam every Wednesday night at 6pm, and dropping in is encouraged and musicians are welcome to jump up to the mic and host a song.  And do they ever.   Last night, they had the joint tapping feet and a room full of smiles as they covered Johnny Cash, Chris Isaak, and many traditional favorites.

The Wise Photo Project

I AM BOULDER BUSINESS | The Wise Photo Project | Lyons Colorado | 720.982.9237

I create artful, magazine-style environmental portraits using real black and white or color film, create archival prints, matted, framed and ready for display. Traditional darkroom hand-printing is also available.

DSC_7542

These legacy portraits, printed and framed, will last for generations and are experienced on a daily basis in your home, on your walls.

Pixels are good for sharing, but they’re forgotten. Prints are for preservation.

Why film?

It’s a feeling.  I suppose, you either feel it or you don’t.  I certainly do.  There’s a magic in that silver, I tell you.  Now there’s a Tri-X negative in a sleeve that exists with that image.  And there is a print of each photograph in a frame, to savor those moments.

Because photography wasn’t meant to be for an instant to share, to check out on the back of a camera screen, or to post once on Facebook then bury, and be done with.  It was meant to save memories.

Film, printed and framed, does that for me.  Unlike anything else available.  Surrounding me in my house and office.  Changing frames out with different memories.  But all real, no electricity needed. Because I intend to make photograph for the ages, not just for today.

Legacy portrait sessions are $325. Prints are available in any size to suit your space. Professional framing and mats in various colors, woods or metals. Shoots are available in Denver, Boulder and throughout the front range and the western slope.Call 720.982.9237
