JSP Visual Week In Review | 04.21.12

Quite the week here on the Jersey side.

Last weekend, we had summer like temps around here, got us all thinking about summer.

Then, a few really cool things happened.

One, my wife and I found a buyer for our house. On the same day, the offer we made on the house we had our eye on for a few months was accepted.

All the legal proceedings are underway now. If all goes well, we’ll be in by early summer.

Hopefully, it’ll be a good move for us. Not really a bigger house – we have modest tastes – but on a bigger plot of land so more room for the kids and dogs to stretch out outside for year to come.

Then, I spoke with three really top-notch photographers: My buddy Joe McNally; super photojournalist David Burnett, and NJ-based, Pulitzer-prizewinner Matt Rainey.

I’ll be working closely with one of them this coming week, on a really exciting photo essay project.

Start guessing which one it’ll be…more to come.

Oh, and to cap the week off…I scored some floor-level Springsteen tickets when he returns to New Jersey on his Wrecking Ball tour in September.
