Forest Park with Bob

You might remember Bob from the Indoor Gardening Society meeting in February. We slipped a little note into his sleeve to say we would love to hear from him, and here we are on the J train to 111th Street, heading to Forest Park in Queens. Pine forest setting and detailed treasure map were very kindly provided by our very own nature expert Anthony from the phragmites experience. Thank you also to assistant Anton Broadway.

    Ajattelin että olisi hauska nähdä sama “puku” jonkun “maanläheisemmän” persoonan yllä.
    Ikäänkuin puku olisi pääosassa ja henkilö naamioituneena puvun väreihin???

  3. Such special imagery. I love that you’re sharing the process. It’s such a cool concept and the variations could be endless.
