I am playing hooky on Friday… although can you really call it playing hooky if you request the day off? A friend and I are taking our cameras (we actually have matching cameras) and heading to the Orchid show at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and then heading to the Prospect Park Zoo. We are hoping that because it is Friday neither place will be mobbed with people. Keep your fingers crossed for us. I have been bad about taking pictures so far this year so I am really looking forward to this.
