the Book of Bokeh

Our last store that day was Pottery Barn, which for a photographer who loves textures, is like being in heaven! Thanks so much to the lovely staff at the Garden City store for letting me take some gorgeous shots there!

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photo selections. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
