Black and Whites of Old New York

New York City Department of Records has published a link to 870,000 plus archival images. This one below makes my heart panic... but the one below that is my favorite. Even if they spelled my name wrong. ;)

I love interesting surfaces. Add some color, some texture, lighting.... love it. CaraGreen, a sustainable material company based in North Carolina, has some beautiful materials which you can see on their website.

I love this section of their website. Gorgeous applications. Cradle to cradle certified and beautiful on top of that!

Remembering Dick Clark

My heart goes out to the friends and family of Dick Clark. Yahoo posted this great photo gallery yesterday. I don't believe I've ever seen young photos of him...

Hello avid readers! I haven't forgotten about you...I hate to admit I have been sucked into the world of Instagram (in addition to being busy!). If you somehow don't have Instagram yet, get it! And find me! Search for valerie walter!

Smartphone Users!

Check out this new Google Maps App, Floor Plan Marker. Google Maps needs your help getting information on floor plans in public places like the mall, museums, etc.

It seems like it's more for nerds, although they say it nicely: Map Enthusiasts. I'm not a map enthusiast, but I am a nerd and I love anything to do with floor plans!

Too bad I didn't win the Mega Millions, I could have redone my entire kitchen in things from Big Chill Retro Appliances.

Right up my alley....AND they do custom colors!

Look at those colors!!!

Is it possible to be in love with a fridge?

Photoshoot on a nice day!

I was approached to take photos for a yoga contest. The rules were simple, the weather was fantastic, and Jen and Susannah were great!

Rear Window Fans!

The movie, not fans you put in your window...

A friend sent me this... I absolutely love it. For those of you who have seen the fantastic classic, you can appreciate it. For those of you who have not seen the movie, see it. Even if you haven't seen the movie, you can appreciate this creative visual, although don't look too closely because it is literally the entire movie in two minutes.
