i was at a loss as to where i could take some new pictures. as i've said previously, i'm sick of the bookcase, and have been liking all the out-and-about shots i've been accumulating lately.

then i remembered... this is brooklyn. i live in a loft. every self-respecting brooklynite loft dweller has a roof to chill on. and so it be.

at the time, i didn't know how to flip the tripod down and get vertical shots. that's why they're all horizontal :)

also, i'm not crazy about the contrast of the white roof against the drab building backgrounds. i'll have to make the composition work a little better next time. and wear more colorful outfits if i come up for pictures again! i hope to... as it's the summer, and why not take advantage?

  1. Hello Bushwick! I recognize the steeple in the background of some of these pics! I used to live on Troutman St.

    Anyway, I just found you via Elycia's blog. I love your voice! I think you can add Jenny Lewis to your "about me" comparing yourself to Feist & Joni Mitchell. :)
