fall in the city

I brought my camera while Phaedra and I walked home from school today.

Her school reminds me of my elementary school on Long Island.





These are just some cool trees and sights along the way...





Home!

almost done with the house

Here is the living room...
One wall is painted orange, the rest will be light gray and the trim will be black. Dramatic.








You can see we have more work to do...

Here is the studio. It's just basically a room to work in, but interesting, of course.




It has more work too. we still have 2 walls with nothing on them yet :)
