"FEEL-GOOD SHOT" #5
Link - by Avi Abrams



Some joyful stuff to brighten up your day
Mixed images flow: cars, girls, spectacular art, etc.

Welcome to the Post-Thanksgiving issue of Dark Roasted Blend's "Feel-Good" series: mostly bright and sweet collection of images designed to propel you along your day with a smile on your face and a spring in your gait.


("November Lights" by Meago Magda, Poland)

This is a kind of Tumbler-substitute for the caffeinated, busy crowd with deeply-felt and sophisticated sensibilities, somewhat nostalgic about more glamorous times (you know who you are), or just looking for that extra bit of sunshine.


(Benny Andersson & Anni Frid Lyngstad, ABBA)

Here is essential England, all in one picture: beautiful lady (Millie Perkins), sports two-seater car (Austin Healey), old house -
