Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you had a peacefully rejuvenating holiday weekend.

This week, get 40% Off all photographs (including prints already on sale) with Coupon Code "Holiday40". Shop Roadside Photographs on etsy or Able + Baker.


What was I doing at 5:00 this morning? Creating a Pinterest Holiday Gift Guide! (Do you love Pinterest as much as I do?)

My Holiday Gift Guide features gifts and stocking stuffers from $2 - $160, and includes a few of my photographs and some Able + Baker originals, as well as an array of items to love from other Independent Designers, Artists, and Vintage sellers.

If you're looking to support Independent Designers and small businesses this holiday season, my Pinboard may be a fun place to start.

I'll be adding more items throughout the week, including items from fellow Unique LA participants. Have I mentioned that I'm participating in Unique LA this weekend? It's going to be one busy and exciting week!

What is my Gift Guide missing? Send me links of the products you're loving this holiday season... I'd love to see.

Thanks everyone, I hope you have a great day!

Sometimes it's nice to be a passenger...

...because it allows me to take photos like this as we drive by.

Train Depot, Detroit.

The Michigan Central Railway was designed by Warren & Wetmore and Reed and Stern, the same firms who designed the Grand Central Terminal in New York. Just a mile from Downtown Detroit, the Depot serviced passengers from 1913 through 1988, although a major decline in traffic began after WWII .

Per our friend Wikipedia:

At the beginning of World War I, the peak of rail travel in the United States, more than two hundred trains left the station each day and lines would stretch from the boarding gates to the main entrance. In the 1940s, more than four thousand passengers a day used the station and more than three thousand people worked in its office tower. Among those who arrived at MCS were Presidents Herbert Hoover, Harry S. Truman and Franklin D. Roosevelt, actor Charlie Chaplin and inventor Thomas Edison.

Sunday (Good) Times

What a nice long Sunday we're having... listening to records, working around the house, celebrating the fact that we finally have internet by streaming plenty of movies, and baking gingerbread.
good for you too?
