Color Your World 2018: 120 Days of Crayola – Navy Blue

Navy Blue Holiday Window

Lord & Taylor Window, December 2016, New York City

A 2016 Christmas window in Lord & Taylor’s Manhattan flagship store (for the moment). Lord & Taylor is the oldest department store in the United States, its first store opening in 1824 in New York City. In 1914, it moved into its Fifth Avenue store, which is well known for its Christmas windows. Declines in the department store retail sector and the rise of  internet shopping resulted in the 2017 sale of the Manhattan main store to a shared economy startup called WeWork. Lord & Taylor will lease about a quarter of the space for a store. The rest will be given over to shared working spaces for gig economy workers and bright young entrepreneurs who need lounges with bars, game tables, and fancy water in order to feel comfortable at work.

Castle de la Rocheport

It snowed last night and the side roads were icy. We had to walk up for our private visit to this wonderful castle. Longer post to follow.

Actually Yesterday

February 21, 2018, a one-day summer at 82 degrees. And the robins have arrived.

February in northern Virginia is usually chilly. Yesterday, we had a one-day summer, with a high of about 82 degrees. It was lovely to see the robins had returned to, or were at least migrating through, the area.

I have been playing with my new used camera, a full frame Canon 5DIII. I can’t wait to use it when I go back to France at the end of February.
