Colin Archer/ Agency New Jersey
This week I did an assignment for the New York Times on the unemployment insurance benefit fund in New Jersey. I arrived at the One Stop Career Center in Neptune early Wednesday morning and made phone calls to Trenton in order to get the okay to shoot inside the agency. These days clients seeking unemployment insurance must use the phone or internet to file a claim. I was looking for a large sign on the side of a building that said “Unemployment Office” with a line of people stretched around the corner, but not any more. There was only a few people that came to the office to file their claim so I was able to get off a few frames of that for this weekend New Jersey section of the Times.
Today Agency New Jersey joined the world of blogging. Sitting in the office doing paperwork before heading out for an assignment for the New York Post we joined up and became “bloggers”. Soon our blog site will mask our other sites with Neon Sky and Photoshelter.
Well goodbye for now and happy shooting
