I love the way the shadows and folds give the photo depth. Very nice! I've never seen anything like this.

That's that Swedish or Danish designer's stuff---he/she does great, inexpensive chandeliers. I'll remember the name tomorrow, but I love it, too.

Hi y'all!

A quick message in a bottle -- long work week underway, but not so long that I can't at least say "thanks" for stopping by and having fun with this. (And Ed, no, I won't cut it out. It's already been cut out, you cut-up, you.)

Anyway...spotted in the window of a very funky-and-crazy toy store near a huge college campus -- one of my favorite places to shop in Austin.

The light was lovely and added that sweet depth. Wish I caught some better reflections on the glass to make it even more puzzling/engaging, but oh well, another time.

Oooooooooooooooh. I feel like I am at a baby shower saying that. :-)

Love your latest pics m'lady!

Fabulous! Glad it isn't the little snip of horrors.

The reflections of the window, even being so subtle, add a lot to that picture for me... Is it because of them that the lower part have another colour, darker and more brown? With them and the shadows of the cut paper, the image have a lot of deepness. I like it a lot.

Love - Love - LOVE!!!

Hey David -- the tone change was I think a result of more sunlight hitting the bottom of the window display (strong late afternoon sun), and more fluorescent light within the store at the top of the display.

It was virtually unnoticable when I saw the window, but became much more noticable when I opened the image on my laptop.

Part of the fun -- surprises!
