dire la verite

James Dean violinist in Copley. I gave him a copy of this sketchbook page. :)
The other night we had our first real snow! It made me so happy. I love snow in the city.
I hadn't even noticed that my neighbor's rose bush still had a few roses in bloom until I saw them covered in snow in the morning.
I found a large group of pigeons in the south end the other day. Every time they got startled, they'd take off over my head. It looked like a beautiful swarm of insects (like a plague that would be in a story meant for little girls to read). My camera was accidentally on zoom when I took this. At first I was sad because I wanted to capture the whole of it, but I love the way the motion of their wings got captured in this shot, so it was a happy accident.
I hope you all have great weekends!

I bet he was thrilled to receive your sketch.
We got snow and the rain washed it away.

He was! I'm always so shy to give things to people I don't know, but he was really happy about it. So perhaps I'll be less shy in the future.
Yes, all our snow is gone, too! Hopefully it will come back soon.

If you ever get tired of painting, honey, you should turn to a career in photography. You're a natural. I just love all your photographs.

I think it's great that you gave the violinist a copy of your sketchbook page!
