Ps. We were having lunch in the meat packing district when this married couple in the last photo walked by. She was a beautiful bride indeed. I was doing the ‘awwwww’ whilst the guys were doing the ‘he just signed his life away’ comments and what not. lol.
This pretty much rounds up my photo’s from my recent trip to NYC. Editing was a haggle because i took almost five hundred images, and of course not every single one was blog worthy. Most of the images I’m keeping for memories and well, the rest on here is for this blog. With that said, i know some of my friends that i met in NY are anxious to read what my opinion of the city is. For the first two days i was in NY, i kept saying the city reminded me of Chicago and i didn’t think i would live there. On day 3 and 4, i gladly told myself that i could possibly live in NYC. Coming from a laid back suburb city, i was really overwhelmed by NY. The subway system, the city’s fast paced lifestyle and all the walking that i had to do. I was full of complaints about walking since i don’t remember the last time i ever walked this much in my life. In Nashville, i never go anywhere without a car, so you can imagine how frustrated i was when i had to walk to the subway, then walk to wherever we were going, be it the museum, or just to eat. Anyways, after getting used to this, i totally took the city in and enjoyed every moment i was there. From the friends i finally got to meet after talking on social networks for as long as i can remember to great food to amazing shops, i can definitely understand why this city is one of the greatest in the world. I had the chance to visit most of the stores i drool over on the internet, had the best cranberry and vodka ever, and most importantly i formed friendships that will have a lasting impact on my life. Thank you to everyone that took out time to be with me whilst i was up there, (TJ, Troy, George,Akua,Walter and Ronnie) i know you guys have busy lives, but you still kicked it with me and made my stay a great one. Thank you…
Now, is NYC the best city I’ve been to so far? No it’s not. Miami still takes the cake for me
The city is full of interesting individuals. For the record, it’ll be very hard to stand out in New York. Also, to even feel awkward about yourself in New York would be hard too. You can be yourself in the city and i don’t think you would be judged by weird looks or anything. Before we stepped out into the streets, my friends kept telling me to expect any and everything. These two people caught my eye. Well, also caught my photographer friend Wale’s eye as well. He had a great eye for these individuals and stopped them to take their images, so i also went ahead and captured them as well.
I’m a lover of type. Having a little background in Graphic Design, I’m always drawn to them when I’m in a different city. New York City had all sorts of it. I captured a few.
My buddy TJ shot this last night in my room
So earlier I posted a great chair from Totokaelo. I’m now posting some of their table top stuff that I totally love.
