thoughts of summer, the perfect antidote to a frigid mellow yellow monday and new york portraits
























during this past weekend I noticed this tiny begonia hanging on in its flower pot from last summer. while noticing the perfect yellow, of course I immediately thought of mellow yellow monday. please be sure to stop over there and visit if you are at all interested in all things yellow.
I also thought it would be nice to turn our thoughts away from the cold by sharing with you a print I just received from kitty over at new york portraits. last summer while perusing kitty's blog I saw she posted a print that I absolutely fell in love with. it's one of those pieces I could just look at again and again. I immediately wrote her and asked her if she had any plans to sell her photographs. she wrote that she had and was planning on doing so sometime in the near future. long story short, guess what I got for christmas? if you love photography and would like to see some amazing photographs, please visit new york portraits. kitty has a great eye for capturing an authentic new york portrait. every day that I visit her blog and look at her work I am reminded of why I love new york and the people that live here. check it out, isn't it amazing? thank you kitty!
