…………………

some out-of-town guests are coming to NY this weekend, and i’m throwing a little party … so i thought i’d get myself in the mood to string up the party lights today. it doesn’t seem like the end of may around here, weather-wise or in my head. i think a party outside on a roofdeck, with lights and lanterns, cold beers, good food and friends is just what i need. i’m ready for you, summer. (and please, weather gods, no more rain this weekend)

also, thanks for all of your nice comments this week about my film shots – i appreciate them all.
a happy weekend to you!

    I put up party lights on our back porch last July for Tim’s birthday party, and they’ve been there ever since. They look just as pretty while it’s snowing as they do in the rain, or on a summer night. They make me happy.

    ooh, party lights! these images are great, and really do say, “welcome, summer!” i have really enjoyed your film shots this weekend. they have me thinking, “where is my old minolta? which makes me panic–but only because i am moving and don’t know where anything is. but once i find it. . . i am excited to get to know it again. have a great weekend!

    In the UK they call these fairy lights :)
    I adore them! They make everything just a little more special.
    Enjoy your weekend with friends..and the roofdeck party sounds just lovely.

    i stumbled upon your flickr account recently. love your photos. i am a junkie for atmosphere and setting and your pictures definitely let me indulge in that. i used to live in park slope and brooklyn heights and your photos of brooklyn and new york also bring me back to those years.
