I shot this inside a florist shop on Amsterdam Ave. in NYC last weekend. I wasn't going to post it but a comment from someone on my flickr photostream changed my mind.
The texture I used is Gold Amber Swirl Paper by EnchantedGirl stock on Deviant Art.

Riverside Park is a scenic waterfront public park on the Upper West Side in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. It consists of a narrow four-mile strip of land between the Hudson River and the gently curving Riverside Drive. When the park was first laid out, access to the river was blocked by the right-of-way of the NY Central Railroad West Side Line. Later it was covered over with an esplande line with honey locust trees.

The weather has been beautiful in Maryland for the past several days. It's sweet and soft and perfect and I know it won't last, but for now it makes me glad.
Have a beautiful Thursday, all.

A lovely horse is always an experience....
It is an emotional experience of the kind that is spoiled by words.
There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.
He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

It's 2 PM and I realized that I haven't posted on this site for several days. And it's supposed to be "A Picture A Day", isn't it? I am my own taskmaker, aren't I?
This is from a framed print I got at Kohl's. It's a real leaf, I think. I love how lacey it is. I applied a Joy St. Claire texture over it and added a layer mask, brushing off some of the texture from the leaf.
It was raining this morning so I was taking pictures of things I like inside. Hope your Sunday is a pleasant one!

First off, I did NOT take this photo. It was taken by my friend, Tracey. I wanted to post it because it's not too often that one gets to see baby birds in their nest, waiting for their mother to come and feed them.
Great job, Tracey! And she climbed a tree to get this one, mind you.

Another one from the files. Although it isn't the best quality, it has always made me smile.
I took this last April. I'd come home, parked in the driveway and noticed all these birds in a line along the fence. So I ran inside to get the camera, putting the zoom lens on and was surprised to see they were all still there. It was really windy that day and the walnut tree (it's to the right) was blocking the force.

Not a very creative title post, I know. But I'm glad that the person who designed this column was creative. I love these architectural details.
Taken at the old school I visited on the tour a couple of weekends ago. Cheers, all!
