Reader Contribution Du Jour: Edie’s Big Adventure!
Okay, this has nothing to do with north Brooklyn per se but when I saw these shots of Edie the strap-hanging hamster enjoying a ride on the 4 train I went into an extreme fit of cute overload. Wanting— no make that NEEDING— to know the story behind these I shot an email to Edie’s “person”, Victoria. Here’s the scoop:
I’m a photographer for the DA’s office and there is a women there who makes these models (trains, apts, buildings, etc) for court cases, as a visual aid for the jury. The train is perfectly hamster sized so I brought my super tame hamster into work yesterday for a little photo shoot. They came out better than expected. I’m really excited about them.
Well done, Victoria! I can only hope Edie will go on more adventures in the near future. Perhaps next time she can ride the G train or drive one of those new buses with fellow rodentia in tow?* In any case, you can see more of Edie and her introduction to the joy that is mass transit by clicking here. WARNING: by clicking the aforementioned you will view images that are mind-blowingly adorable!
