*Subtitle: Um, might want to be looking out for those bikes...

When the Gucci people asked if I would take a photo in my favorite New York spot for their Gucci Loves New York festivities, my train of thought went something like this:

1) Ooooh, I can take it with the Central Park disco rollerskaters! I can rollerskate around, sporting Gucci! This is still my favorite idea, but unfortunately, it proved to be too logistically challenging, being that my rollerskates have not yet arrived from Singapore, and the disco skating is really more of a warm weekend kind of thing and not a chilly February weekday kind of thing. So that idea was (very very sadly) scrapped.

2) My next idea was Coney Island, which has such an amazing, old-school carnival-ish feel. I had visions of my Gucci bag and me with the bearded lady and a Nathan's hot dog, with the Cyclone rollercoaster in the background. However, it is really pretty far from midtown Manhattan, which made it especially hard to rope in a friend to come and play photog, even with the incentive of bearded ladies. So I eventually scrapped that idea too.

3) Ultimately, I decided on the Brooklyn Bridge. I do have my favorite Manhattan spots – the Moma, Barney's, the shiny lights of Broadway, for starters -- but I adore Brooklyn and was glad to include it. I couldn't convince anyone to sneak out of work and trek over the bridge with me on a rainy Monday, so I took along my trusty mini-tripod and made do. There are a bunch of outtakes, including when I nearly took out a couple of bikers with my umbrella (see above). In the end, I am happy to report that no bikers were harmed in the making of this picture. And it was all kinda fun.

And thus concludes the Gucci portion of our program. Much thanks again to everyone at Gucci for including us in their festivities – they chalked it up to a big blogger experiment, but it was nice to be part of the scientific process. We now resume our regular, frivolous, non-celebrity-filled schedule.
