What Photobloggers Do....


 One of my favorite City Daily Photobloggers, Daryl ( Out and About in New York City and Through My Eyes) paid me a visit this past weekend.  We've been corresponding for more than a year,  and so when I picked her up at the airport on Friday, it was "old home week" as we say down here.  Joining Daryl was my dear Paris amie Mary Gilbert, who flew in from Cincinnati on Thursday.  Birmingham offered them a warm welcome...a very warm welcome.  I think Daryl's next visit will probably be in the winter!  Despite the heat, there was a whole lot of laughing and talking and....picture taking.  I hope you will visit her blogs and say hello!

Or is she merely silver-blond...?

Maya said...

Wow, she does have beautiful hair, doesn't she? Glad you had a good time with your blogging buddies. Wish we could see you again over here!! :-)

I'm glad to see you guys didn't melt!

Thanks for meeting up with me. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to meet two daily bloggers and their nice travel pal.

It's pure magic meeting the bloggers we've grown to admire and care for. So glad you all had such a 'hot' time!

Luis Gomez said...

Was this a party for just the beautiful "silver blonds"? I missed seeing the three of you and hope to meet Daryl on another visit.

Daryl said...

jb,
Trois "silver blonds" in one apartment was the makings of a great time. You should have been here too!

Steviewren, you were a dear to drive all that way to see us. You and I must meet up one day soon!!!

Genie, you were missed ma chère!

Daryl,
the pleasure was all mine!

BC, you must come next and bring Bird with you!

Kate, I had "hair envy" all weekend!

Maya, I miss you two. Perhaps you will be coming to NY ??? :)

Luis, Merci!

One of the good sides of blogging: discovering the hidden parts of bloggers...

Excellent portrait! Bet you ladies had a swell time! Get-togethers are so much fun. Hope you enjoyed your desserts. :)

Have a happy Monday.

It is a lovely portrait, Virginia. I would love to have her hair, too. Admittedly, I would cut lots of it off, but I do have some spots in need of "re-seeding."

steviewren said...

I'd love to meet up with you sometime Virginia. Just say the word.

ps...I think it is a great photo as well...doesn't Daryl have great arms as well as pretty hair?

bfarr said...

Very nice portrait.

Bob Crowe said...

She's gonna get her pinkie in her picture! I have never seen her stuff - another one I need to check out.

Virginia said...

I love your comments today. I'm sure Daryl does as well. What could be better than a Blogfest!

Jilly said...

What a lovely photo of a gorgeous woman. I want that hair!

Marie-Noyale said...

I had the same idea as Ken mac
Emmilou Harris came to my mind first thing!

jb said...

And talking of Emmylou Harris - Ms jb and MFTP's missus went to see her a couple of weeks ago in Frankfurt. Playing a song from the 1970's, she commented "This one goes back to my brunette period..."
