Liz Barnet and the Barnet Booty Brigade (Workouts in NYC)

In honor of her father’s courageous year-and-a-half long battle with colon cancer, Liz and her family are continuing the crusade of The Barnet Booty Brigade, originally formed in 2014, by dedicating themselves to raising awareness and funds to benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance.

Signs of San Francisco

Signs of San Francisco from Lindsay Tabas on Vimeo. Katie came to visit me in August 2009. She helped herself to my city of 4 years so I helped myself to her images.
