New York Food Experience

This weekend I was invited to photograph a true New York Foodie Experience with @Ainsliecooks . We met up at the Grand Army Plaza Outdoor Farmer’s Market picked up some locally sourced ingredients and some spectacular wine from Borghese Vineyards  and we were on our way.  We took the local bus to Ainslie’s amazing street that looks like it was taken straight out of England, and made a delectable lunch together as a collective group. Here are some shots from the day.

If you didn’t get the chance to try it out last time, don’t fret because LCLK is popping up for another special event at another local brewery, Fifth Hammer in Long Island City on Nov. 7th. Get your tickets here before they sell out!

Susan Troy Textiles

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to photograph the lovely and talented Susan Troy and her gorgeous textiles. Her unique designs are hand painted on linen, cotton and bamboo cloth, creating non-repeating, small collections as well as repeat digital layout for yardage.  They are really something to see. Stay tuned for her upcoming editorial in SO Rhode Island. Be sure to check out her work here… susantroy.com
