alphabet hop: let it B. let it B.

can you figure out what my word
is that begins with the letter B?














for those of you who have been following me, know how in love i am with the city of chicago.
and especially even more so now, as the end of the summer is approaching.
so i call this collection for the alphabet hop, "city blues."


get it?

i tried to capture lots of the color blue in objects or in nature, but also many of my favorite spots throughout the city that give me the blues 'cause it reminds me the days
are getting shorter and shorter of my days
in the lovely city.


for those of you who are visiting my blog for the first time 'cause of the blog hop, WELCOME!
thanks for visiting my little place of a creative outlet. it's so lovely to have you and i hope you come again. be sure to follow all the other fab-blogs participating in this sweet event (hosted by onesyndeyroad).

[HAPPY BLOG-HOPPING!]
