Bartering is Easy as Pie (for Photographs)

This is Jane, and that is my pie.

Jane posted an insane ad on Craigslist a while ago. The ad said she was trying to get an interior design business going, needed to develop a portfolio, but couldn't afford to hire a photographer to shoot her work. She could however offer barter, like making pillows, sewing curtains, or baking pies. I really like pie, so I wrote to Jane.

Earlier this evening, I shot an apartment space Jane designed and she presented me with a freshly baked, still warm, apple pie. I love NYC for moments of weirdness like this.
