I haven't taken any portraits in a while. And I wanted to. So I dragged my friend out to Theodore Roosevelt Island so I could take some.

I'm thankful for my friend Irene. She's always up for a quick trip to take some pictures. Whether I'm making her trek through the mud or she's getting eaten alive by mosquitos, she never complains. She's also a super-great-fantastic singer/songwriter. So yeah, I'm lucky to be able to call her a friend.
