DRB Feel-Good Issue #3

“FEEL-GOOD SHOT” #3
Link – by Avi Abrams

Some joyful stuff to brighten up your day

Welcome to the second 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.

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