Sunny Flowers

Oh, just here to share some eye candy that happens to be growing 
on 10' stalks in the backyard next door.

Here's the first day that was camera-worthy, ya know, when I was out there and noticed them and just had to snap some pictures. They are so interesting to me and I don't think I had seen any growing before--only in vase arrangements.

And then just a week later, the bees were a-swarmin' 
all around these babes. I love how happy they are.

Golly, I'm such a flower nut.  These aren't even 
our sunflowers and I post about them :)

I hope they make you smile today!

The Table - a pecha kucha presentation

Say what?

     Pecha kucha is a presentation style. 

{PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.} 

A principal architect at my firm heard about this concept and pushed for a pecha kucha "night" at our monthly office meeting, which happened to be a company lunch potluck. Even better. 
Five people gave five pecha kuchas - all tied loosely to architecture and design, but casual and personal.

It was lots of fun--and challenging to fit the format! I recorded it post-potluck to share :)
