Spring Can't Arrive Quickly Enough

The huge piles of snow seemed to linger interminably this year, but everything is wet and melting.  Colin even came in this week and said stuff is happening in his garden already! So for me that means spring photo shoots.  I can't wait to get out to our recently or just-about-completed residential projects and grab some more shots!

Bruce took these at the edge of fall last year with his little point and shoot, and I have to say, they are not bad!  I knew that man had a good eye.

And we have an amazing project coming together in Wilton that's just screaming to be photographed.  I got a few shots last year before the weather turned and I've been dreaming about getting back there ever since.

Although, I am glad to see a long overdue Barbie as Architect, especially with the field so dominated by men, I have give a mild roll the eyes.  (I'm trying to do it pretty far down in the post so Bruce never sees it because he's scarily excited about this development.)  I'll give her the high heels because her feet are designed for them and every woman loves a high heel.  Glasses, because she's studious?  A drawing roll not seen since the early 90s?  And pink?  When was the last time you saw a scale model in pink?  Or clothing other than black (or khaki if you're in Fairfield County) in an Architect's office?

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, the only questions really is, 'how many dolls are we ordering?'  Because she's totally a career step up from this one we've got harnessed up in the back room:
