The road home

It's hard not to really feel this line from E.B. White's Here is New York when flying over a tiny glittering Manhattan. My heart swelled when I saw the buildings of downtown peeking through the corner of my window.


Charleston was packed with fried things, grits, beautiful old mansions, grits, the nicest strangers, grits, AND good coffee. What more could a girl want? Posts to come, I'm sure.

  1. Wow, what a photo! Does New York at night ever look bad from the sky? I don't think so.

    (The poster-like quality of this photo reminded me that I've been meaning to ask: Do you have any plans to update your Etsy print shop in the near future, and/or do you take commissions for prints of your work? I know you must be incredibly busy, but I just thought I'd ask!)

    1. Hi CW! I do have plans to open a new print shop in the future -- won't be on Etsy but will feature limited edition larger prints. And I definitely take commissions as well. :)

  2. This would make a great print. Can you print and sell in a large size? like a 24 by 36 or something?

    1. I'm not sure this will print well at that size -- high ISO and a bit blurry up close!
