A few weeks ago, before Hurricane Sandy came to NYC, I did some practice shots with Kate in preparation for fall photos I had planned to take in a beautiful park the coming weekend...
Then Sandy came... She blew all the beautiful leaves off the trees, tore down trees in the park, and made a general mess of things!
So, the shots I thought were for practice are now our official fall photos!!
They're not as perfect or picturesque as I would've liked. However, they are real life!! Since Sandy came, our Coast Guard family has been incredibly busy with clean up around the port and we've been clearing the house of clothes that are too small and could be used by one of the MANY families around here who lost their homes.
In the end, we are lucky. The waves came over the sea wall, crossed the Belt Parkway and edged closer and closer to our house... but then, they began to recede. We never even lost power! So with that, we are very lucky! If you have the ability to give a few dollars to the Red Cross, please do. So many people have lost their homes here and every little bit helps.
