Sometimes, when you're stuck at the Merrick, Long Island train station at 9:24 at night, surrounded by bros (the forever fraternity), you just have to have a photo shoot.
You have to take a minute from your family-filled day and take snap shots of real life. Because even though you bring your camera to that family dinner to document (and barely take any photos), it's going to be that night on the platform with your sister you're going to remember.
How late the train was, the discussions we had, the laughs we shared, and all the while being surrounded by Long Islanders waiting for the drunk train.
Photos from October, blog post from November. Sometimes life is so busy you barely document it. And when do it is of the little things.
Sunsets on buildings, pinatas named Bertha, vintage varsity jackets in the park, pumpkins and gourds on the window sill, coconut donuts from Peter Pan Bakery on a Sunday morning, and the flame of the candle that fills the room with scents of an apple orchard.
