And Factotum, I definitely think you’re due for a trip to New York.

The idea of a small family sitting at an outdoor cafe doing a project (like a cross word) together sounds cute. I like pictures that show a family interacting.

I also like the idea of a SUPER early morning in the city in the middle of an empty street with a million high-rises behind you and your family walking across (shot as you cross the middle). dangerous but worth it.

we always wanted to hang our fav pairs of worn out shoes over a streetlight or telephone wire, but never did before we left the urban life.A shot of the shoes hanging and then a shot of just your family toes would be cool.

I love the subway idea.

ONe idea: find some of your favorite local postacard scenes and then try to replicate the shot with your family in it. Good luck!

we’ve also taken pictures in front of our favorite graffiti wall right on the BQE in brooklyn, at our favorite park with the urban surroundings, and on the roof of our old building.

Is there something special about the city they live in, maybe go to that and have their picture (kind of a cliche’, but still cute). I love the idea of a taxi and the park bench. Hmmm…I keep picturing a child hanging from a street sign, but that’s probably just because I know my son would be doing that!
