I love these blue photos from Paris photographer Nicolas Vandeven’s “Dark Blue” flickr set. They’re so calming to look at. It’s a perfect visual respite after a frenzied week. It’s sprinkling here and I’m so glad. I hope it really rains. I’m looking forward to a weekend of rest.

Thank you everyone for your kind messages of concern about my dad. I read him your comments in the hospital today. It made him smile. And me too. He’s doing better.

Ah sigh….


(PS: One more blue photo here.)

    So glad your father is feeling better, Tina, and that you are in for a weekend of rest. These photos are truly so calming, wonderfuly mysterious and refreshing. I can almost feel the mist on my face. It’s been raining all day in SF, and it’s been lovely to just stay in. We have a skylight in the bathroom, and you can really hear the rain in there. I had a long, relaxing bath, a glas of wine and listened to the raindrops. I wish you a relaxing weekend, my lovely!
