Rebecca, for me on Long Island it has to be Sea Cliff, many of the victorian homes are painted the most beautiful color combinations.

Rebecca - Nope I have not heard about it but what a great idea. Everyone should consider doing exterior painting and sprucing up their neighborhood, especially if it needs it.

Thanks Rebecca!

This is a wonderful idea.  Many communities would benefit from some fresh paint in the commercial areas.

Have a great day and an outstanding week with your camera in hand.
