I love the proportions of this old Coke refrigerator sitting outside the Vermont Country Store in Rockingham, New Hampshire. My summer camp had one of these chest fridges, filled with ice-cold soda. Do you remember them?
Three people seated on a bench outside a museum adjacent to the Masaya Craft Market in Nicaragua. The museum was closed, in quiet contrast to the lively stalls in the artisan market just a few yards away. Overhead, a maze of power lines channeled the "noise" of the city, making it all the more remarkable that this family created a moment of calm. Perhaps they found the green as soothing as I do.
There are a precious few minutes just before the sun rises, the magic time when street sweepers wield their brooms, vendors unpack, commuters head off to work, and photographers try to capture the glow. A few weeks ago, I wandered around the Parque Central in the old colonial center of Granada, Nicaragua, with my camera, grasping at those moments.
I adore this blog. Every day the color extracted from a range of stunning photographs stretches my eye to see what I might not have noticed otherwise. A great aid to designers, whether your palette is for a living room re-do, or a business brochure.
