    This week we're going to keep it simple and do just one thing: take a picture outside.

    Leave the sweaty confines of your basement and embrace the glory of the elements.

    Show us the sun illuminating that Solaro suit. Reveal how that double-breasted, 30oz tweed overcoat shields you from the blizzard. You get the idea

    Please wear a suit or tailored jacket, the rest is up to you.

    Entries will close midnight Sat 24 September.

    Well, the day to leave my old office has finally arrived and I had been taking some pics inside and out one last time, so may as well post a couple here:

    Well I've been visiting an industrial textile company in the south of France yesterday, 2h30 driving in the mounts of Ardeche. The road was pretty hard, and I was alone, so difficult to take some good pictures, but I attempted...

    By chance, my husband and I had an al fresco dinner this evening, downtown, at a restaurant in Battery Park City, and he was kind enough to do a few pix, so, unexpectedly, I have an entry for this week's challenge.

    Hmmm....only a handful of entries so far, only 6 hours until the deadline, and I'm travelling.

    So I will submit a photo from a month or two ago.

    Thank you, Shugs. It was tricky to get the shots, as my husband's timing was in sync with the waiter bringing us our food :).
