The temperatures have been so hot in New York City this week that the prospect of long walks with my camera hasn’t been appealing at all.  Thankfully, our apartment – small as it is – is filled with lots of my favorite things.

Antique teacups passed down from our grandmothers…

And, of course the antique toys that belonged to my father as a child…

Hope you are surrounded by beautiful things wherever you are, too!


    • Ola Pedro,

      I was having fun using the Aperture Value setting on my new digital Panasonic Lumix camera! I still haven’t discovered all the “bells and whistles” of the camera, but I’m on my way.

      Hoje vamos passear no norte de Manhattan e fazer uma visita ao mosteirio Cloisters. It is a medieval monastery/museum, but was originally in France (then transported here.) That’s about as close to the Middle Ages as you can get in this country. 😉

      Ciao –

    • Ola Pedro,

      Pics are coming soon! We had a gorgeous day and I got some really nice shots of the gardens at the Cloisters museum…

      Ate ja –
