For The Birds.

We hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving. We had a nice relaxing visit down south and it was good to unwind for a bit and go "off-line". One thing we discovered while we were away was the website for artist/photographer Paul Octavious. We don't know that much about him, other than he currently lives in Chicago, but we're crazy about his work and his eye. In particular, we were drawn to these photos of birds he took while visiting the Yale Peabody museum. The birds themselves are rather handsome, but we find the colors in the images to be sublime and quite inspiring. Be sure though and check out his website, because not only is Paul a great lensman, he's a terrific storyteller who uses few words and instead depends mainly on his own photographs. This guy is incredibly clever and a huge talent...hope you enjoy his work as much as we do.

So beautiful & interesting. I love birds, so I've enjoyed it.

I was almost forgetting... Talking about "beautiful", Heidi Klum and Seal just bought a new house in La. You need to take a look. I think you'd love the Italian rose gardens.
