I had the pleasure of visiting with one of the women I have been in contact with via the Photo Forum I play on... she was on her way to Maine and decided to stop for a visit and photo shoot. So we met in Frenchtown NJ. The Yarn Bombers had just finished adding their touch to so many things in town. The blanket wrapped tree was one of my favorites. It was fun looking for the large and small pieces they applied all over Bridge Street. It was the first day of the east coast's first heat wave so after a short bit we ditched into a stained glass shop and had the most lovely surprise. The artist was in and we all had a wonderful chat. When the heat finally overtook us we found the National Hotel and had a yummy lunch. Robin had a sushi dish and I had the nachos and both were unique and tasty. It is definately a return to place with the hubby. Finally I have been working on my gonzo images.
Last Sunday was a real hoot and hollor. I picked up an early train out of Hamilton to get into New York bright and early in the morning for the CHAI RIDERS Motorcycle Club Photo Shoot. The NYPD were gracious as ever and helped register all the bikes for the parade and plan the escort to the Celebrate Israel Parade down Fifth Avenue.
These folks were a lot of fun. Within about 5 minutes of my arrival I was loaned a helmet and had a volunteer driver. Plenty of times for some pictures then we were off and heading to our entry point into the parade.
We had to wait there for a while so we got to see alot of the parade and I was able to get a group shot of the Chai Riders in attendence for the day. There were a bunch more riders from all over and as far away as Scotland. Everyone was wearing their colors. It was so much fun and the crowd just went wild when the motorcycles roared up...I was hooten and holleren for real....whoohooo.. and I just could not stop giggling because it was so much fun.
Well most of the crowd seemed to like it.
And then it was over.....
I googled it when I got home and found a you tube that had me in it within the first 10 seconds...blue shirt looking like a flag waving fool. Check it out here
I thought red was over too. I even had a plan
