Thai is one of my favorite cuisines..

Thai Nalyn’s proximity to Boise State probably puts in the the category of university restaurants. Once inside, it is a relief to find that the cliental & food do not resemble a college food court. I haven’t eaten here yet. With the reviews Boise Weekly gave & the location being mere blocks from where my Calculus class meets, it is only a matter of time…

Pasta. Made fresh, daily and in-house!

Geez! I can hardly keep up…

A couple of weeks ago I took photos of Asiago’s Restaurant & Winebar.

Great ambiance, neat space & the food looked delicious. Their menu will make you hungry instantly. Visit their website and check ’em out.

Rosalie. Idaho’s Traveling Lady!

Photographing Rosalie Sorrels was an adventure.

I took off early afternoon one sunny day & drove North. Past Lucky Peak, over the hills, through the woods, past Idaho City, down a dirt road, across a “bridge,” over a pot-hole riddled road at the base of a hill covered with haphazardly balancing boulders, around the bend & into the driveway (still dirt). –PHEW–

Rosalie’s dog (Lenny Bruce) greeted me. Rosalie showed me into her log home (which her father built when she was a little girl).

I hadn’t done my research before I left–shame on me! Aside from her being a folk singer, I didn’t actually know much (or anything else) about Rosalie. Lucky for me, Rosalie was understanding. Starting with childhood she gave me an overview of her past. She showed me poems that inspired her, books she contributed to, photos of her & her children. She shared stories about her health, about pack-rats, and about playing at Woodstock (including a backstage jam session with Grateful Dead).

This is one fascinating lady! Great stories, great talent, great determination. After 3 hours of chatting, being entertained & taking on occasional photo, I finally headed hit the road. Very glad I had to the opportunity to photograph Rosalie.

“We’re inspired by people who create, and people with a purpose.”

Visual Arts Collective is where it’s at. Music, art, film, theater, private parties, drink.

Alley Repertory Theater is one of many groups that call the VAC home. Below are the Co-Artistic Directors, Buffie Main & Hollis Welsh. These ladies are really busy, incredibly dedicated & super friendly.
