top image is mine. would you believe that this was taken in brooklyn, right off of the brooklyn-queens expressway? i love how it looks like it could’ve been in the woods far outside of the city.

the weather around here has been so strange the past few weeks. it’s not very warm, and it’s been raining a whole lot. for me, the images above speak to this. blues and dark greens.

today, i’m enjoying the work of spencer finch, especially sky over coney island.

i also like mathew scott’s series, ‘the book of mathew’.

this weekend, i think i’m going to cook this.

and i’m hoping to take some photo walks this weekend. i’m in need of inspiration, and that always helps.

i hope your weekend is full of good stuff (and perhaps a dark & stormy or two). cheers!

    yes, let us know how the dumplings came out! the weather has been the same this side of the pond… I wouldn’t mind seeing blue skies again… looking forward to seeing the results from your photo walks!

    Ha that first image caught my attention – I wondered where you’d been. Love the green in the middle of the city. I live 10 minutes from the core of Seattle yet my home is surrounded by woods and beach; nice to have an oasis of nature yet not have to live outside a city (I can’t imagine…) Thanks for the recipe – the first of the strawberries are starting to show up here – enjoy your weekend!

    Hi, Brian!
    I just wanted to let you know that my weekend improved instantaneously because I’ve made butter with your recipe! It’s fantastic!
    I can’t wait for my little girl to wake up from her nap and have a taste of it! I know she will love it.
    If only I have made bread in the morning… Oh, anyway. I am going to make some toasts and enjoy the butter.
    Thank you!
