Welcome 2010


Happy New Year! I hope you all had a perfect new years eve, and are not feeling too seedy. I feel quite perky this morning...not enough champagne, I guess. The picture above, is what's left of our soiree for two.

We were up and at 'em early this morning, to check out remnants of last night. I love early morning revelers. Sleepy, slow walkers, happy (drunk?) faces. This girl made me smile, with those chirpy tights, tulle skirt, and tiger striped drum trimmed with feathers and strapped to her back. I would love to know where she had been.

More morning after shots. Where did those balloons come from? Who's head did that new year's hat adorn? Who was that person jumping over the puddle?

Wishing you all have a spectacular 2010! I'm looking forward to reading more of your blogs in the new year. Fellow Vancouverites, brace yourselves for the Olympics.

You've got the eye of a professional photographer for details. I like the baloons, the girl in her funny red outfit walking on the nice street,the lonely yellow hat, the man's jumping over the puddle. Beautiful!

Snap, not seedy at all, and yes, morning-after revellers are a joy to behold, especially the young ball-goers on the morning city trains among the staid commuters. May 2010 treat you well!

I had dim sum at perfect chinese restaurant and then waited for the sun to rise with my dearest but now I wish I'd gone to whatever party it was that 'tulle skirt' went to.
Happy New Years my dear.
Warm regards,
Simone.

Isn't it fun checking out people crawling home after a big party night such as NYE? I was up early and felt fresh as a flower... not enough champagne, I guess. :)

Oh, I love that first shot. Well, I love them all, actually. You've captured the feeling of the New Year quite perfectly. Although, after kids, it seems like mornings are always slightly surreal. :)
