One photo by G. One photo by a complete stranger. You’ll figure out which is which.
Here’s another reason I bring my camera everywhere I go… The other night I was arriving at Mercury Lounge for the late show and the band from the early show, Chairlift, was packing their gear after their set. I’ve seen Chairlift before so I immediately recognized lead singer Caroline Polachek. I started talking to her and asked her if she would mind taking a photo with me. She told me to hold on as she scanned the room. Suddenly, inspiration struck her. She pointed to a chair and said “here’s what we are going to do – get on your knees and I am going to give birth to you for the photo.” As you can see, that is EXACTLY what happened! Epic.
We then took a “serious” photo, but I couldn’t help smiling.
Thanks Caroline! That was definitely an experience for the books!
