So I must confess that I don’t explore my own neighborhood nearly enough. Although High Park is only a mere 10 or so blocks away, the first time I’d ever been is when we shot the Nancy Drew editorial for Issue 9. If it hadn’t been for Anabela of Fieldguided (a blog I love whose author I’ve never met, despite a recent discovery that we live a within walking distance from each other), I would have probably missed the annual spectacle that is the cherry blossom tree blooming. Avyn Wornette was in the office when I made the discovery and we hatched a plot to throw together a last minute photoshoot for fun. Of course, when our planned day arrived I got buried under work and couldn’t leave the office, but I sent Avyn and her friend Adelle out with the WORN camera – and a bunch of clothing Avyn made – to frolic in the fields for what looked like a lovely afternoon. One of these days I’ll make it out of here!
