Coasting Through the Holidays on to 2007!

I know, I know, it's been a long time since I last posted, but hey...I just got back from a 30 day holiday! It was truly divine! First to Minnesota to see my parents and family, then to NYC, off to Houston to see the "Sistas", and then a relaxing week in Cozumel.

My friend, Leeah lives in Manhattan and I was fortunate enough to spend Christmas with her. She was generous enough to give me these clever little beverage coasters. She knows how much I love to take pictures with my old Polaroid camera.

I've put four of my favorite snaps that I took on my visit to New York City, and she's featured in the first one. In the picture above she is artfully standing in the foyer of the Solomon R. Guggenhein Museum. This was a great milestone in my life as I love art and I adore the architect, Frank Lloyd Wright who designed the museum. This capture is a bit dark, but the original image is quite striking.

Here is a picture of a bicycle that was secured on the side of the street. It was cloudy and rainy and the sun came out for a bit, and I was happy (along with the other millions) that it was saying hello.

Another milestone in my life...I'm at the Tiffany's that Audrey Hepburn stood in front of in one of my favorite movies "Breakfast at Tiffany's". The place was packed, but we were able to make our way in and bought a new key chain to add to my growing collection of T&CO.

My final photo is my departure of NYC on to Houston. I took this at the John F. Kennedy Airport while I waited for my flight.

If you'd like to take a look at my pictures please click on the link to to the right or go to dinaripper creations: photographs. Yes, a shameless plug to get people to peer at my pics! Talk to you again soon! Next time I will be cooking up something tastey I hope!
