check out the other shots of my hood here:

my hood #1

my hood #2

there's so many things i like about this scene. i mean, maybe its the girls braids with the blue beads, the motion of the throw, the girls vs. boys, the open courtyard, the trash in the corner... it's all really beautiful to me.

i like to imagine the weather reporter talking about the size of a storm by the amount of crappy umbrellas that will be littering the streets the day after.  they’d be like, “well john, you can expect tomorrow’s storm to bring a minimum of 5-6 UPB’s (umbrellas per block – you know how T.V. people like to “abbreve” things) then the following day will calm down to about 2-3 UPB…”  last night we had a pretty gnarly storm, so this morning i walked down 9 blocks of broadway (almost a half mile) and back to document the carnage.  during that 9 block round trip i counted 86 umbrellas.  so that makes last nights squall a 9.5 UPB storm.

when life gives you snow, make pretty pictures

we found an igloo.  it wasn’t huge, but it was big enough that we both crawled in and could have squeezed another person at least – maybe two.  it was the snowiest month in NY history and the fourth largest snow storm in the city on record – and i was shooting heidi just as the last of the snow was falling.  in fact, before we finished it had completely stopped – minus the massive avalanches that fell down from the treetops at random.  heidi is hilarious.  she talks a lot – but not the annoying kind – she just says exactly what’s on her mind.  i think that’s cool.  she has lots of energy and didn’t need much direction.  we shot till heidi was just about numb and wrapped the day with some hot chocolate.
