i look out the window, and i think, what, are we living in seattle now?! it's rained more in new york these past ten days than it did during the three weeks we just spent in that sunny coastal city. but it's kind of nice, as if we're being allowed to use spare moments getting the house back together and create and not worry about the twelve million things that need to be done. i'm not lying. TWELVE MILLION. what is it about september?
reminded of our seattle time, i shoved the twelve million in the corner and leafed through my camera. these shots from the chihuly garden make me want to make a dress out of glass. the mojo is back (yes, amy, ye olde phase weighs in at an ovulatory stage!), and i'm getting inspired by everything.
i took so many pictures, i had to remind myself to Put Ze Canon Down and physically look at what was around me.
we began our stroll at six, had dinner in the cafe, and then walked through the whole shebang again to see it all lit up after sunset. totally different experience.
while we were in the cafe, devouring some delicious burgers with an oregon cab, a museum photographer began to circle the joint, offering pictures to the patrons. we hightailed it out of there like the new yorkers we are, expecting to be coerced into ten bucks for a crappy disneyland shot or some such.
well, actually, i hightailed it out of there. out in the gardens, ruggy took it in a southern way and ventured: i think she meant a free photograph. i snickered at his naivete.
of course she meant for free, and i watched with a pout as happy tourists smiled in front of her stunning eighty pound camera. so before we left, i marched up with a toothy grin and asked for a photograph. for all of the posing and prancing i do on le blog, its actually pretty rare that i'm on the front side of the lens with the man i love.
but i digress. i want to make a dress out of glass. speed racers and sight see-ers (and love-givers, thank y'all so much for the lavender dress love!) do you think that's possible?
