Adventures in Red Hook, Bay Ridge, Park Slope & Sunset Park

The day started off with a very very early morning shoot across the street with old Hampshire friend, Jenny, her husband Steve and their two kids Imogen and Odette.  They work freelance together at a production company, nuncle in Red Hook, mostly on award winning documentaries.  They had coffee ready and Steve made waffles and bacon for breakfast.  Odette showed me her remarkable drawing skills, while Imogen showed me her remarkable flying skills.

Then off to Bay Ridge to more Hampshire friends, Asia and Dan and to meet their son Roman.  Dan is a writer and also part of the Hampshire media mafia at CNBC. I don't think I had seen either one of them since Hampshire so it was great to catch up (over coffee and a very healthy fruit plate).  Roman also was quite taken with the Hasselblad so I taught him the tricks of the trade and he'll be working for me in no time flat.

Then off to Park Slope to yet another Hampshire friend, Lisa to meet her husband, Alex and daughter Enna. And her dad Peter happened to be visiting, too.  Lisa is a writer (another one singing the freelance woes) and is working on a book about friendship, so we talked friend shop.  She is also editing part time for a web magazine.

And finally, to Sunset Park to expat Mainers, Jeff & Maeve's place.  Jeff does web design and Maeve works in a gallery.  I missed the ruckus dance party the night before and they claimed the place was a mess, but I could barely tell a party existed. Needless to say they were troopers and we had a nice time catching up over a cup of tea in their backyard (!).
