Residency Day 2

Well, it’s day 3 now. Yesterday, after The Miss Rockaway Armada pulled out of Red Wing, I drove up Hwy 61 to scout for photos. I made a bunch of mediocre photos all afternoon. I met a woman in Miesville who told me that there was a baseball tournament in town starting later that day. It is the Minnesota State Class C and B Amateur Baseball Tournament. I came back once it started after supper. I shot all night, and I have a few that could be promising:

Then a got another second-rate night of sleep. I need to get to bed earlier. The traffic wakes me up around 6. My first night, I got about 4 hours, and last night I got around 6. I need to get a real good nights’ sleep tonight.

Tomorrow, I’ll be swinging back to the Cities for the afternoon. I’ll be doing the first photoshoot for the NY Times article. To put it as succinctly as possible, the story is about gay men who decide to have biological children with lesbian partners. So the family unit that emerges is a gay father and two lesbian mothers. The father many times has a boyfriend or partner, so the children end up being parented by 3 and sometimes 4 parents.



I like images 1, 2, and 5.
Have fun on your shoot.
