The Celebratory New Yorker.

September 13, 2010

I’m a pretty bad New Yorker. I’ve been out of town for the beginning of every September since “nine eleven”, up until this year. Every year, people spend September 11th telling you for the 20th time exactly where they were in 2001, while a part of my favorite city crumbled. (Yeah. I get it you’re morning rituals were affected that day. ugh!)

I’m so glad I was here for it this year. It seems pretty insensitive to what that day represents but I feel like a real New Yorker doesn’t dwell on the past and much as they turn it into a celebration! So:

There was another photographer at Galas birthday party. We swapped lenses for a bit, so I got to use the nicer version of my 50mm for the afternoon. Heres some of the shots I took from the party

Look Mom, No Pants!

May 5, 2010

This month, I turn 25 years old. I’ve been thinking about how much life has changed from birth up to now. For ONE thing, I am required to wear pants far more often than I did as an infant.

I wouldn’t consider myself a very feminine lady. I’m comfortable wearing denim….maybe a bit too comfortable, though. So in celebration of completing a quarter life, I am going back to the basics. For the month of May, I have decided that I will not be wearing pants at all for 30 days! Just skirts and dresses.

I gotta say, I’m really enjoying it, thus far. If you’re a bit of a tomboy living in warm climates for the next couple of months, I highly suggest this challenge.

It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.
