I took the A train South to Lafayette Sreet in Brooklyn to meet my friend Lisa Russell. Lisa and I met a hundred years ago. High School to be more specific. We were at cheerleading camp (no one believes this now of two artsy geeks!) and got into trouble when Lisa snuck into my dorm room. She was the enemy, you see. We were from cross town rival schools.
She moved to New York more than a decade ago and now lives in Brooklyn where she edits the documentaries she shoots in Africa. She is quite the adventurer. Last year she went to the Congo by her self! For me, Brooklyn by subway is an adventure! (I don't know why subways freak me out a little) But, come to think of it, it's all an adventure.
If you are interested in checking out what Lisa does you can check out her blog. She has done some amazing work. Her films are about various subjects including women's health and obstetric fistula.
On that note, let's get back to our fun in Brooklyn! Loved this first shot of the "pistachio" building! Most of these shots are about color which is pretty appropriate for this artsy and unique place. I loved it there.
This is in Lisa's place, the poster is for the film she has been working on, Myth of the Motherland.
We ended our day with a 2 for 1 wine special and four hours of conversation in a booth at Maggie May's. I think that's what it was called. Hmm. Well, Maggie something's. I can't remember. I will blame it on the 2 for 1 special!
