We both really enjoy getting to know people from all walks of life. We also love our city feel and that we am providing a home in an vibrant neighbrohood that is slightly off the beaten path but just steps from all that the city has to offer. I'm a passionate documentary photographer and am in the process of setting up a tin-type darkroom in the backyard.
