FSO- Friendship Bridges

Once again I am taking a theme on our shoot out and twisting it to fit my photos. I have met some of the nicest people through blog, and hope to meet many more! The internet is a true bridge that connects us to people, places, and subjects we might not otherwise have known!

I had the opportunity to go into NYC and attend a wonderful book fair, The Rainbow Book Fair, and meet the most fabulous, friendly, and supportive 'Bryan Borland' fan club- Ann Marie (her daughter, a wonderful teenage boy they know, his parents, and another friend from New Jersey), Beth (Louisiana), Victor (a fan of the poetry), and his NYC contact (I apologize for lack of remembering all those others I met!). So many nice people!








































In the attempt to interview Bryan, with his first published poetry book just out, 'My Life As Adam', we had a camera set up, but it went off after only two minutes of our wonderful fifteen minute talk about his journey as a poet, a gay man in Arkansas, and as well as our shared experience with loosing people in our lives that have given us this unique connection! I look forward to these new 'bridges' growing in so many ways all of you I met today!

It was brave for Byran to come out. I work with two lesbian women and one of them are very open about her relationship.

Also I dream everyday that my book will be published though I will want it to be published by somebody.

Good you have a different take on this topic.

You have shown that there is a lot one can do with this theme. Sounds like you had a great time at the book fair!

Barry said...

I especially like it when themes get used creatively like this. Glad you had so much fun at the book fair.

I loved this. Only disappointed that your conversation got cut off. Would've loved to hear more.
