Last week I photographed Sheila at Payette Brewing for a Boise Weekly article (check it out here) on proposed legislation that would lower taxes for breweries and in turn, likely increase production and sales and therefore, wait for it, tax revenue. Magic.
Sheila was awesome. She was even willing to hold a keg over her head at my request. I’d say she looks pretty victorious — let’s hope the bill passes!
A couple weeks ago, my almost-sister-in-law and I got to share the duties of an article for the Boise Weekly. Christine Ritchie wrote the piece, A Steampunk Sculptor, and I photographed (of course) the artist and some of his incredible inventory of art and miscellaneous parts.
Christine does a fantastic job explaining Britton’s eccentric creations and imagination. To make sense of all the different artistic pieces you see in the images below, you should definitely read Christine’s article before scanning this blog post. Hopefully this will be the first of many collaborations!
Downtown near the 8th Street escalator you’ll find this little shop — All About Games. Inside is a colorful array of games and puzzles galore. If you’re lucky you’ll get to meet the adorable polo-wearing shop dog.
Here’s a cool little factoid: All About Games does game rental…for CHEAP. So instead of dropping $30 on a game you’ve never played (and then having buyer’s remorse) you can just rent it and try it out for a few bucks. Pretty sweet idea.
