They smiled as we walked along, animal masks in tow.

"There were three beautiful sisters, so clear and delicate.
The dress of one was red, that of the second blue, and that of the third all white;
hand in hand they danced by the calm lake in the bright moonlight.
They were not elves, they were daughters of men.
The scents were so sweet and the girls were lost in the forest, the scents grew stronger,
three coffins, with the three beautiful maidens lying in them,
glided from the wood thicket across the lake;
the glowworms flew gleaming about them like little hovering lights.
Are the dancing girls sleeping,
or are they dead?
The flower scent says they are corpses
and the evening bell tolls over the dead."

Today was my photo shoot in Dumbo.
The concept was amazing and I can't wait to share some of the finished products with you.
I am very much over Manhattan and keep begging my mom to move to Brooklyn.
I hope you are all having lovely weeks, and I'll be in touch the moment I get home tomorrow!
Love for you all.

Gorgeous, pretty, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! I SO wish I were going to be in NY for halloween...If only plane tickets from Oregon to NYC were NOT like a million dollars...UGH. I miss it tons. And I've decided that I'm over Manhattan too. When I come back I'm living in Brooklyn.
I can't wait to see the results of your photoshoot! And of course I hope you're doing splendidly.
