Two fridays ago, our friend Ami invited Keren and I to go on a sunset sail. I’d never done anything like this before and it fulfilled all my expectations. The sailboat left from South Street Seaport and headed out towards Ellis Island. Everyone showed up in their very best nautical attire. Note to all sailors or future passengers, people get crazy on their boats in the Hudson: totally debaucherous (two women flashed our boat, eeeeee). But getting to shoot from a sailboat was rad. Also I only posted the image of the old Chinese couple on the steps of the port for my friend Jamie Daughters; he’s been trying to achieve that sitting pose forever, and this guy does it so naturally it hurts.
