What’s that, you say? Two posts in a day?? Well, apparently said day is National Polka Dot Day, so I took it as an excuse throw this oldish one into the grid.

  •   piccolotakesall @amundj Amund, I have 6 of these orange stacking chairs, so as it stands (or should I say sits? ), there's enough for our fine gathering of folks. And as for the beans, you'll likely consider this a "cheat", but it's a “Roma” Nespresso pod! @jenae28 @kbasta Let’s get this party started! 1w
  •   piccolotakesall @speeppola I thought someone would appreciate a caffeinated post after a long weekend! 1w
  •   piccolotakesall @1_of_8 Super yummy! Pull up a chair and join the IG round table! 1w
  •   amundj Yeah! A cheat. Completely unexpected from your side. Fell off my Eames! Oh I forgot, I had none! 7d
  •   piccolotakesall @amundj Hahah. Well, when I visit you guys at your cabin, you can make me a *real* cuppa along with a stack of your fabulous berry pancakes! And if need be, I'll bring my own chair to sit on! 7d
  •   annienguyen Gorgeous! 3d
  •   piccolotakesall @annienguyen Aww, thanks, Annie! 3d

  •   jeffreythelin What a lovely portrait. I always love your black and white photos! You're very tasteful when you choose to use it. 7d
  •   _221b_bakerstreet_ This is so good!!! The mood, tones - the angles! 6d
  •   piccolotakesall @_221b_bakerstreet_ Thanks, Brian! I'm glad I had the nerve to ask him for a picture! I wouldn't have been able to take one undetected, so asking seemed the lesser risk, at the time! 5d
  •   piccolotakesall @jeffreythelin Thanks, Jeff. I really appreciate that! I don't typically go with black and white unless something about the color just isn't working. I find it very (emotionally?) difficult to strip the color out of an image, so in my opinion, doing so, has got to make the image better. I struggled with this one for a long time before going monotones, and even still, getting the contrast and depth right, took some work! I'm glad the time was worth it! 5d
  •   crotography Excellent 3d
  •   piccolotakesall @crotography Thank you, sir! 3d

  •   piccolotakesall @kbasta Hahaha. Will do! Perhaps she has some video clips she might divulge! I do do not picture you as a heavy curser! I always pictured you as more proper! See how IG leads us to make such false assumptions about eachother?! @kcpenelope 2w
  •   kbasta @kcpenelope is NOT allowed to share images or video without written permission. :) No, not proper at all! I just try to not offend too much of the planet w/ my naughtiness. 2w
  •   gummyting Love it! Haha I forgot about that tag, it's felt like a year since I saw a colourful leaf . Thanks for using it and spreading the word, girl! 2w
  •   piccolotakesall @gummyting Haha. No problem, Rose! I keep a list of tags, most which I can never use! 2w
  •   kcpenelope @kbasta doesn't have a Chicago accent. But it's true she does curse well. The cursing does a good job of balancing the intellectual stuff ... It's a good mix. :-) 2w
  •   kbasta @kcpenelope love you!!!! 2w
  •   piccolotakesall Hehe! Bear with me – It might take me some time to adjust my perceptions! @kcpenelope @kbasta 2w

piccolotakesall Burning, But Not Consumed 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @kbasta Thanks, K... I think the light was reflecting off the building across the street. So, you were surprised to see my name by this image??? I appreciate architecture and formal photography, but to be inspired to post an image, I usually need there it to have an additional sentiment. And the “burning” light here, did that for me. 3w
  •   jenae28 crazy cool light and shadow...and gorgeous strip of sky! 3w
  •   svotra Awesome! 3w
  •   emencher Excellent! 2w
  •   piccolotakesall @emencher Thanks so much, Eric! Couldn't resist the reflected light overlay! 2w
  •   postaljeff Oh. My. Goodness. 2w
  •   piccolotakesall @postaljeff Haha. Thanks, Jeff. I love this facade, and the way the light was hitting it that afternoon, was undeniable. 2w

piccolotakesall Window of Possibility (Reset)
-----------------------------------------------------
My previous post threw me off my bearings a bit, so I felt like I needed to reset... Since my tendency is to hibernate, I’ll likely be posting images taken in 2014 (or earlier ) for the rest of the winter. So, to re-start off, here’s a black & white version of the image I posted on New Year’s Day, 2014. It’s over a year “old”, but the sentiment remains. Thanks for humoring me, folks.
3w
  •   piccolotakesall @samboy5000 Haha. Thanks, Sam! 🚊 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @batrayday Bwahahaha. My plan has come together... Thanks, Josh. I always loved this in both color and B&W. This was a way to finally get to share both! 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @larsgarvey Thanks, Lars. Fortunately, the boy was so entranced, I had time to get out of my seat and get closer to quickly frame it up. Glad to hear you've made it safely to the west coast! 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @nebula8 Haha. That's great, Chris! (To be honest, this is usually me! ) 3w
  •   365ken I couldn't pull it together in time, plus 2014 was a rough one for me...felt like I didn't have anything worth sharing. I might show my face on the 21st to show support though. 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @365ken Oh no, no, no! Not true! Although, I definitely know the feeling. It's okay. Please come out, if it will be good for you to. I'd be glad to see you. 3w
  •   shootermag Good!!!! 1w

I don’t usually do this, but my sister sent me a photo from Miami airport today, and I thought it had some much-needed color for this rainy Philly weekend. Photo by @a_liantonio, minimalish edit by me.
(P.S. – This better not get more likes than one of my own photos. )

  •   batrayday Just delete it before that happens!!! 3w
  •   jenae28 firstly...gorgeous X's! soooo #superXlove! secondly...you know I LOVE this fabulous burst of color! woohoo! way to start off the new year you two! @a_liantonio 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @batrayday Phew! Glad all that drama is over! ...or is it??? Bwahahahahahahaha! 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @jenae28 hahaha. #superxlove! Jen, I love color as much (or more) than the next person, but I never seem to have much in my feed... It's always much more subtle. Not sure why, but perhaps, I’m more often attempting (subconsciously) to give speech to the more quiet places and moments? Not sure. But I couldn't resist sharing this more outspoken one. Glad you like it, but I'm more glad you've stuck with me for all the muted moments, as well. Thanks, Jen. It really does mean a lot. 3w
  •   jenae28 I know exactly what you mean Vicki...except the opposite here for me. I appreciate subtle and find these more 'quiet' images so beautiful...yet all I have in my gallery is bright high contrast saturated noisy and loud! lol...😬 and I cannot seem to stop myself! so I must thank you back just the same. I do think this is one of the beauties of IG...truly. 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @jenae28 You are very right. We are all multi-faceted people, even if our collection of images only reflects a certain side of us. 3w
  •   vcamed 3w
  •   piccolotakesall @vcamed Thanks, Valerie. 2w

piccolotakesall ...And since it’s a new year, I figured it’s a good time for a new (and dressed-appropriately-for-winter) profile pic...
Happy first day of the year, y’all. Hope you're all recovering well.

piccolotakesall I’ve been meaning to pull together an end-of-year post, maybe a video collage of my favorites of 2014, or perhaps of the multitudes of edited, but unposted images sitting in my roll. But rather, I’m posting this video of me and my sister, “cleaning up” after Christmas dinner.
Whatever happens this coming year, may we never ignore the lightness inside us. To more kitchen dancing! To more anywhere dancing!
It’s a New Year, y’all – Let’s dance like no one is watching.

  •   lukeybagi I think I got it! But mine comes out with more running man and happy faces with my feet... I need to study your jazz feet. ;) 6d
  •   lukeybagi PS... You are adorable. 6d
  •   staceyelle 5d
  •   piccolotakesall @lukeybagi Happy faces with your feet??? How does that work??? PS – I got a pretty mean running man, as well, I just don't do it to jazz/early rock n roll! 5d
  •   lukeybagi I use it in everything! You should too. Just got to find the variation that fits! ;) hahaha 5d
  •   exphotographer I think I've come back to enjoy this at least ten times! 10h

  •   fac_610 We're playing taxi for them tonight, fun little dinner and take them to parties. Happy New Year to you and tim : ) 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @fac_610 ha. I guess your girls at at that age. I guess we were all nerds and homebodies in my family – we all always stayed home and made lots of snack foods and banged pots and pans out the front door, old Brooklyn style. Tonight, we're not doing anything but getting food ready for having my family over for a little brunch tomorrow. Partay! 4w

  •   piccolotakesall @gummyting hehehe. 4w
  •   jenae28 what a fascinating window treatment! I see layers of tree trunks? I've been staring and unable to decipher but what a gorgeous effect with the beautiful fall color beyond. 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @jenae28 Haha. Yes... They are mesh panels printed with a birch trunk pattern, that cut and fit to hang in these windows. I got them at IKEA about 8 years ago. I do love the effect. Thanks, Jen. 4w

piccolotakesall Holding On (Bare Knuckled) 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @mesworthy Thanks so much, Mike. Something about this just grabbed me. 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @lmunjone Yes. I'm not sure if you can see it, but the roots are actually entwined around several rocks! 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @fac_610 Thanks, Bill. I wasn't sure if the title was too harsh/rough. I guess you don't think so. ;) I was also close to posting in black and white, but couldn't bear to lose those spots of rust and green. They certainly don't add to the content, per se, but for me, they add to the "quality". Like I was saying to K, this was a quick shot (I felt like I was holding up the group), so I didn't do any close looking or thinking on the spot. But I think the arm/hand likeness called to me at the small size when scrolling through my roll. blah blah blah. ;) 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @fac_610 I'm also quite surprised that this is my most-liked post in a month... I didn't expect to get much at all on this at all! 4w
  •   jenae28 beautiful details perfectly framed! 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @jenae28 So funny that you say that, as I took this so quickly! We passed it along the path, and I ran back to take a shot – basically, just to "remember" that crazy rootball! – and then ran back to meet my group! It’s always a struggle to balance the "need" to take a picture, and the discipline, in a way, of *just being* and *being with* other people... 4w

piccolotakesall I Am With You 1mon
  •   piccolotakesall @fac_610 Thanks for sharing that thought. You know how ignorant I am of most historical and artistic references... But wow. Were you thinking of something like the #cornarochapel? 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @kbasta @asinellone Merci, mes amis! 4w
  •   fac_610 yes, something like that : ) you'd love these chapels, the way they bring light into them and the details are just so full of symbolism and material richness. it was the main focus of my time in Rome, Bernini and Borromini. I honestly can't wait to see them again someday. I hope. It was what you saw in the shot, right? 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @fac_610 Honestly, I had not thought of a chapel, per se... Less of a particular *place*, and more the *presence*... 4w
  •   fac_610 Yes. That's what I meant. I explained it poorly. : ) light as presence or spirit. 4w
  •   piccolotakesall @fac_610 ;) And it was particular fitting, floating over my sister. I hope you get to go back. I'm pretty confident you will. 4w
