Film Photography: Abandoned Trolleys in Red Hook, Brooklyn

I woke up on Saturday excited to zip over to Red Hook and photograph the abandoned trolleys behind Fairway in Red Hook. It was cold and rainy when we woke up. I could tell that Kate wasn't in the mood to brave the rain, but she could also tell how much I wanted to shoot the trolleys. We went to Red Hook, but had a great brunch at Home Made on the way to fortify our adventures. Stomachs full and bodies warmed by copious amount of coffee, we strolled down Van Brunt street. Kate ducked into Fairway and I went around the back to find the trains. They are gorgeous vintage PCC trolleys and regardless of the whispered plans for future uses, I can't imagine that they will ever see action beyond the occasional photo shoot.
