The lady in the bakery is from Peter Pan Donuts!! I love that place, I use to live in Greenpoint and they have the BEST donuts. In fact we came in to visit for the 4th and we made it a point to go there the first chance we could get. Awesome pictures and a great post!

It's so true - we should be grateful & adore the 'ordinary' everyday people we meet in our lives. Yours look like a lot of fun!

What beautiful photos. You have an amazing blog. Now I'm craving something sweet from the Peter Pan Doughnut Shop where I haven't been in years!

Lucie said...

I'm enjoying this blog after discovering it randomly. I love the people in your neighbourhood. I wonder if there are people like that in my neighbourhood? I've never looked properly!

Sylvia said...

This is so lovely!! I cannot express how happy I am when I see you have a new post. Your work always makes me happy.

Gosh, Katie, I just discovered you last week, and I absolutely adore your work. I come here when I need a smile... because when I look at your posts, I just can't stop! You're a truly special gal with a big heart. Keep it up -- we need more people out there like you. :-)

This is wonderful! I'm a strong believer that it is those around us, even beyond those we have close relationships with, that make up our own personal culture. Thanks so much for this one, made my day!

Thanks to Girl Interrupted I found your wonderful blog !
What a great idea ! We talk so much about people surrounding us in daily life but it's so much better when we all can put faces to names !!

angel - the bodega owner- top pic is the best. his sister is Shadow. do you remember smokey the bodega cat? 2 years ago i spent a month taking care of her kittens in the basement of this bodega and adopted one. everything that comes out of that place is sweet + friendly. and shadow makes a KILLER bacon egg + chz sandwich but gets mad if you order too late in the day. maybe the best in the nabe, but has to be made by Shadow.

nice little project, it's too easy to ignore the people that we walk by everyday

diana said...

I love Greenpoint and the people in my neighborhood too! Fabulous photos and if you happen to see this, what Photoshop and/or camera settings do you use to get the colors so vibrant? I got a Nikon for a gift and the colors are more washed out than I was used to obtaining with my Canon - I miss my Canon's vibrant colors!

great photos

Michelle said...

They're all so happy! The girl in the bottom photo looks just like my roommate from when we lived in the dorms.

Shell said...

In layman terms, if that is possible, what "setting" do you use to photograph like the one in the toy store?

Anonymous said...

Your photography really captures a feeling of happiness. Yes, the people in our neighborhood are pretty great, but you make them and everything you photograph look even better than the real thing. I love your work!

drachen said...

And the shouting guy at District Dog :D

And the cheery crazy woman at the end :) :) :)
