The Two Last Tops

The last two tops! These were actually the first ones made but who’s keeping track, right? This is my first try on the Bobbie V-neck. It’s made from the Liberty jersey that V chose. So it was supposed to be

Photo Monday – Wide Open Again

I’ve been meaning to buy flowers for weeks. There were these gorgeous mini pumpkin things on branches but they were gone by the time I went to buy some. So I went to the market to find something Halloween-ish. There

Photo Monday – Wide Open

I took a walk in Prospect Park yesterday, hoping to find something interesting. I had my 50mm lens and it goes to 1.4 aperture. That’s a very wide open lens (smaller numbers mean more open) so the depth of field

Photo Monday – Summer Flowers

The grocery store closest to me has flowers outside. Technically, I don’t think the shop is actually part of the grocery store because we have to pay outside. But the bouquets are all lined up right outside on their wall.

Photo Monday – At the Seaport

So there’s this art installation at the Seaport in Manhattan and I knew the girls would like it. It’s just not an area we go to a lot though so I wasn’t sure what to match it with and we
