These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

The FDNY guys are good sports.

We were on location. As happens FDNY were also in the same place, doing routine drills. We asked if they wouldn't mind having their photos taken. They didn't mind. :) I got a LOT more shots with the Pentax, though I took more of the guys themselves and less of the pretty girls on fire trucks. They were all *very* kind and happy to be in pictures.

There were a lot of shots with girls way up on the ladder, but I didnt get any of those in digital.

And I can *totally* picture that shoot. *LOL*

Were you here in NYC? Or were you somewhere else?

Mermy: I do know that feeling. :) I felt so badly for poor Shauna by the end of the day. Some of the requests were so *weird* for poses. If she kicked one of them in the face trying to balance on one leg like that I would have cheered her on.

They all look so infinitely pleased to be willing models here, well found - If I got to do this every sunday I'd well look forward to it.

They were *very* good sports about it. I am sure I got much better shots out of my pentax. I had the long lens on today and got *really* nice closeups. :)

But after three rolls Manny winked at me and said "Go home, girl. You've done enough for one day." So I shot stuff with the Pentax the whole way home.

So help me, most relaxing part of my week is spent on Sundays.
