{travel tuesday} — enchanting rooftop at dusk

15 Jan

well, you may have guessed this would be another blog about new york city…  i can’t believe it’s been a year and a half since i moved… i miss it lots in some ways, but i also know it was the right thing to do to move when i did.  i love to reminisce about my days in the big apple because sometimes i take for granted just how incredible that experience was. i feel i don’t always appreciate myself or the experience enough… not to mention, all the awesome images i captured while there!

this collection is a special one.  when i look through it, i can very easily be whisked away to this very enchanting night.  the ambiance, the dinner that was prepared for me, the dessert, too!, the sky, the brisk air, the moonrise, the way i felt… so vividly i remember it. the very last foto in this blog encompasses the whole evening.  but please be patient and scroll through all of them first 😉

thanks for sharing this with me…

New York City

i always loved the fire escapes in the city… Continue reading

{travel tuesday} — selective colour in a black and white world

18 Sep

that’s me.  and last night, i dreamt about that hat… hA – i’m not even kidding. I MISS THAT HAT!  seriously, strangers would stop me on the street and compliment me on that hat!

new york city is known for being photographed in black and white. and with just cause.  black and white images say “classic” to me – timeless, ageless. and new york is all of those things.  and i found myself shooting in black and white a lot when i first moved there… i’d say for my first year or so i would find myself editing my images and i’d end up converting most of them into black and white, simply because colour seemed to distracting — there is SO MUCH TO LOOK AT!

{travel tuesday} — new york, new york

28 Aug

the people have spoken.  and they’ve used the “like” button as their language. for 3-4 weeks i was posting images in “travel tuesday” that were from when i lived in new york.  LOTS of you liked the posts – almost 20 on each one! some were followers, some just newbies to the blog that probably saw “new york” in the tags, and clicked on it.  either way, the message was clear :

“WE LIKE NEW YORK!”

however, wanting/needing/appreciating diversity, i thought i’d try to post a different travel tuesday. variety is the spice of life, i thought… and i’ve been LOTS of other places… and last week i thought, maybe i should post about some OTHER place to travel to… a DIFFERENT place i’ve been or lived…

nope.  no one cares.  i had like, 4 “likes” last week…

so, i listened.  THE PEOPLE WANT NEW YORK!  and i can’t say i blame them…
