Emiko. Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. July 2015.
Brooklyn as a Film: It’s been so fun hanging in NYC the past couple of weeks – well except for the stifling heat. I keep picturing Spike Lee’s film, Do The Right Thing – which takes place in Brooklyn during a very hot summer. That film vividly describes the kind of heat you feel existing in a New York summer.
I watched this film several times, but the most memorable was in a college Film class – where we analyzed, wrote, discussed and debated each scene from the film. The sexual nature of the ice scene, the racial tension in Brooklyn and how brilliantly Spike Lee depicts the humanity in all people – bigots or not. And how Lee demonstrates the heat one Brooklyn summer so well, while watching you can literally feel the sun blazing down on your face – even in a dark, cold movie theater.

This is Emiko’s first child, he’s so gorgeous, and instead of using a typical diaper bag, this stylish Japanese mama went with a cool backpack, that’s functional.
