little postcards turns 1

A year ago today I posted my very first Polaroid, typed up a couple of paragraphs and began little postcards. Feeling unsure as to how this would pan out, I also felt excited for the journey wherever it would lead to. 365 days later, I look around and see many wonderful friends and dear readers who have given lovely words of encouragement, support, ideas, thoughts, and inspiration. You've helped me to stretch, continue, and explore. I'm still surprised and tickled any time a comment pops up. Time has flown so quickly. I never had any idea how good it would be. I'm very touched and amazed, thank you.

In honour of celebrating year 1, I thought it'd be fun to combine two loves: Polaroids and The Seattle Public Library.camera: polaroid spectra

  16. happy anniversary, and thanks for the great photos of this intriguing building. i work in the oldest library building in the country (built in 1644), and so seeing and visiting new modern libraries is so interesting. a whole different world of library wonderfulness. love the lines and lights and colors.

  19. congrats on reaching your 1 year. :) your photographs are something to look forward to. there's something about the way polaroid film catches the light and captures the subjects you pick. and that library is gorgeous! i've been to seattle twice and can't believe i never checked out the library.
