I haven't been able to get this top photo out of my mind since I saw it here. I'm so in love with the colors and photographer Mark Gong's work is just gorgeous. I think what I'm most drawn to are the bits of color and the rich gray background. And the paper cranes are wickedly sweet.

Yesterday evening I met Jake at the studio for a late night of press mechanics. Before he got there I waited by the back door and looked up at the rooftops of the buildings around me. And what did I see? The same pops of color against the gray sky. It was awesome. Working on the press was not awesome. It was actually a bitch. In my frustration, I made much progress cleaning the No. 4, so all is not lost :)
