corner view: evening






sigh. i'm so sorry to have kept you waiting yet again. weeks are just so full at the moment.

i love evenings. things seem to be slowing down. if we are lucky, there's the promise of dinner with friends or family, or of curling up on the sofa with a book or magazine or a good film. or there's a party to go to and the excitement of getting ready (yes, i really don't have anything to wear! plus a bad hair day. and i can't find my mascara. and i'm late!!!). 

still, ordinary, everyday evenings are pretty lovely too. like when my sister was here and my nieces were getting into their pyjamas early and wore my ballet flats as slippers. the length of one shoe measured roughly the same as their shins... or when they were in bed and my sister and i sat in the kitchen chatting. and then read at the kitchen table (my sister) and pottered around (me). or that evening i rode my bike home and came across the big neon lights on leipziger strasse and saw the ferris wheel by alexander platz from a distance. evenings are good.

find links to more corner views at jane's spain daily (and wish her luck - her computer is at the doctor's!).

ötli: merci! :)

ida: thank you - those shoes are very sparkly indeed, i've been told it's hard to look anywhere else when i'm wearing them, tehehe. that's probably why my niece loves them. when it comes to shoes, i'm like a little girl myself!

kay: hey there - yes, it's hard to beat berlin by night!

marinik: thank you, i couldn't agree more, love evenings!

cabrizette: merci... glad you like the first photo. it's very dark, but i like the soft glow of the shoes with the muted blues and greys.

jane: thank you... great to hear you're back, yay! :)

bree: thanks so much! i'll tell my niece somewhere very far away likes that photo - she'll be very proud! :)

ibb: oh alexanderplatz. so berlin. dirty and naff, and yet... it's got something! :) seeing the television tower always makes me feel: home!
