Nicole invited me to her home to take pictures of her family. She is a graphic artist and takes some pretty awesome photographs herself.

I'm sure you have heard of the theory of six degrees of separation? Well more and more I am convinced that in Trinidad there is only one or two degrees of separation. Just look at your friends on Facebook. I bet you would be hard pressed to find one Trini friend with whom you don't have at least one friend in common.

There is a painting in Nicole's living room that was painted by her good friend. It turns out that this good friend is married to the brother of my good friend. It's a small world after all.

Although we had only just met, when we were done shooting Nicole and I put down a marathon talk session. You know, the kind of conversation that if you are out with your best girlfriends the husbands put on their resigned faces and head for the bar. John my apologies!

Nicole and I talked and talked and TALKED. About what? Everything and nothing, I swear. We even did one of those of those farewells where you say goodbye and walk out to the car and then chat for another hour!  Nicole the ole' talk was nice. We go talk:-)
