model city

we went to a model shop today with the coolest model train city. dan shopped and i took pictures. it was kind of like being on a real vacation for 5 minutes. i saw grazing sheep, sunbathers, a graveyard with a haunted house and the train depot. very exciting.

perfect picture

i like to read the newspaper over people's shoulders on the subway and today i saw this amazing photo taken by a canadian woman who just happened to be flying over an erupting volcano on her way to the caribbean. can you imagine? another reason to get the window seat.

we are going to france! i booked our flights on friday with amex points and have been booking rooms, trains, and automobiles all weekend as well. we are flying into paris, staying 2 nights and then taking the TGV train south to avignon where we are renting a car and driving to nice through crillon, marseille, aix en provence, etc. i am simply amazed it is all working out since it has been a dream for so long.

the built by wendy spring line is the perfect wardrobe for summer in the south of france. ooh la la!

window seat

i always go for the aisle seat when i fly since it feels just a tiny bit less claustrophobic, but i think i need to reassess my decision after seeing paul octacious's amazing aerial shots.

atlanta gardens

the atlanta botanical gardens are always a treat to see when i visit my family. i was amazed by how many people were there with crazy nice cameras. i can't figure out if everyone in atlanta is a professional photographer or if consumer cameras are just super nice these days. hoping for the later for the sake of the atlanta photographers i know.
