5th Avenue Fair in Park Slope/ May 16.

Posted in Event, Food, Moment by shannonsturgis on May 28, 2010

Sunday May 16, 5th Avenue in Park Slope closed down from Sterling Place to 12th Street.  The vehicle-free avenue filled with food vendors, craftsmen, music, neighbors, dogs, carnival games and beer stands.  Side streets were littered with stoop sales and people looking for shade and room to breathe.  I was playing with my new 35 mm.

Last weekend I tagged along with photographer, Chaz Cruz on an engagement shoot for a couple in south Brooklyn.  Heshy and Esther were fun to work with and had a pretty sweet backyard.  Here are some of my photos.  See more shots from the day on Chaz’s site.

DUMBO/ Michael Famous.

Michael bought a fun, new toy camera.

Michael had at least three problems with the new camera:

  1. It wouldn’t load film.
  2. It wouldn’t advance film.
  3. It made loud crunching noises.

Yep.  It seems like the camera is working just as it should.

Here’s a photo of Michael with his new plastic friend:

Brooklyn Uncorked.

Posted in Event, Food by shannonsturgis on May 12, 2010

I had the joy and privilege of shooting Brooklyn Uncorked last week for Edible Brooklyn.  The event was in my neighborhood, I got to try delicious treats from restaurants all over the city and I sampled a wide variety of locally-made wines.  Win-win-win.  They posted a few of my photos on their blog. As you can see, there was quite a turn-out.

More photos to come.

I was Tim Ryan Smith’s second shooter at a wedding last weekend in Boston.  These are a couple of my favorite shots from the reception.

Earth Day/ Woolly Pocket Wall/ Union Square.

Posted in Event by shannonsturgis on April 26, 2010

On Earth Day, April 22, I participated in a live-wall build with Woolly Pocket.  Here’s the promo blurb with all sorts of informative links from the Woolly Pocket Blog:

Celebrate Earth Day with Woolly Pocket at Union Square in New York! We’re planting a spectacular living wall (our largest ever!) made with 400 Wallys filled with edible plants and lush native species. The forty foot long Woolly wall will be on view until Sunday April 25th, when New York Restoration Project will host the NYC Grows Festival to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day!
