Let me know if you do and also if you decide to offer any up for stock. I'd love to play with stock from authentic Lovecraft sites.

Yep, gonna definitely have to make the trip out. Just found my Red Hook shots. This was the only exterior shot. I'd gone out there to a club to see some bands play and all my shots are from inside the club.

What a shame. Let me know when you do I'd sure like a crack at using one or two of them if you don't mind. The idea of doing a piece using stock from a place that actually exists that Lovecraft wrote about is very intriguing.

Also on my list of places to shoot... Lovecraft's home in Brooklyn.
I have the address. It's not really Red Hook, although at the time
he lived here, it was considered to be at the edge of Red Hook.
Red Hook in those days encompassed a lot more than it does now.
But still, I have a good idea where to go to get good industrial shots
down in today's Red Hook.

GMO seaweed comes to New York. It consumes all the artists before being captured and put in the zoo. It is under-appreciated, so it is sold to a restaurant that serves raw fish. It becomes a big hit.
