Saturday-Night, Akane's BD party "A Night of the Pinkness"

After spending a full day under the Sun in Jones beach, I changed the dress and shoes, because there was another mission, Akane's BD celebration in Meat packing district. What was waiting was this scene. A hazy smoky steamy weather was the one of mid summer time...

This color, with such humidity makes Amerikajin excited.

Sweet, and intimate moment of the new couple

Summertime Visiter

Yoko, my longest friend in the US, with her family visited me from Florida. We worked together as a waitress at a Japanese restaurant in UWS about 10 years ago.

Yoko, Lewis san, and Waide kun.

Her beautiful son, Waide kun.

He knows exactly how to pose in front of the camera.
He even watched "The Third Man" with us at night.
