green / grin

A lot of women have a weakness for shoes - I have to admit I have a weakness for coats. Spring is almost here, yet I bought a new coat last weekend. Well it's still cold outside and isn't this a great spring color? / yeah for packages in the mail! i got a belated birthday gift today from my friend who is at the college of charleston. we have always created playlist cds for each others birthday - i'm glad she didn't break the tradition, and she sent this cool alice in wonderland plate? (when i did my alice in wonderland series photos she posed as the cheshire cat for me.)

`But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
`Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
`How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
`You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'

I bet a coat in that color looks great on you...you're so much bolder than I am there...I tend to choose coats in black, brown, or blue. Well, I do have a greenish trench coat that I've had for years. Next time, I may channel a little of your coat selection energy and step out in a new direction.

I love the plate...how sweet is a your friend for sending something so thoughtful from a memory that connects you in the way the original photograph does.

I saw your comment on Paws for Charity and wanted to visit your photo site. Beautiful work...out of the ordinary. I am a photographer myself and I always appreciate unique style and yours is one! Also what a great idea for a blog...mother and daughter.

I love the color of your coat! I love coats also (more than shoes) and wish I had more of them!

I like the idea of making cds for b-days!

What a fantastic plate, Taylor!

Leslye, I love the color of that coat. I'd buy it for sure - just for the yummy color.

As always, striking photos. And yes, that coat's a happy spring green.
