New York City (Part Two)

Time for more images from NYC! Day Three was spent at The Guggenheim, and then at The Whitney Museum for the Whitney Biennial. The amount of art that we saw that day still makes my head hurt a little when I think about it. It was a bit overwhelming even.  I didn’t take out my camera at all in the museums, but did take lots of photographs on my phone and plan to do a post of entirely mobile images, so check back for that soon.

That night a small group of us went on an adventure to Times Square. While looking at these photographs I realized that I like cities for the same reason that I love towering forests of trees; I adore being dwarfed by the things that surround me. The massive buildings of big cities make me feel so small, and so do the trees in old, dense forests. Granted, each place has a different impact on me, and I absolutely need a balance of the two, but for some odd reason I truly enjoy feeling small because of the setting I’m in.

I didn’t take any images on my camera really on day four, so I will skip ahead to our last day in New York. Our last day was a free day for us, and since my head was still spinning from all the art, fellow photography grad Myra and I decided to take the day off from art and museum. We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, and adventured in Central Park a little bit more, just enjoying the nice weather and our last bit of time in the city.

I will be posting two more sets from our trip, one as I mentioned will be all mobile images, and the other will be Polaroids I shot while there. I’m hoping to get those up as soon as possible because I have lots more (and more recent) to share!

176/366 – Target Field

*Saturday, June 30
Saturday was the best day ever. I found my dream wedding dress, and went to the Twins game with my brother. Perfection.

43/365 – Alleyway

I left studio tonight at about 8:30 PM finally. It was so incredibly hot in studio, and so it felt beyond wonderful outside (it was still about 42 degrees when I left). I didn’t even want to be in my car I was so hot (I was wearing pants and a t-shirt even). This is right outside my studio building, you have to drive down here and around in order to get out onto the main road. I have always wanted to take a picture here and so as I was driving down I figured tonight would be a good night for it especially since I wanted to be outside so badly. I unfortunately left my tripod at my house, and so most were blurry, but this one I had set on the hood of my car and got lucky with the framing and such.
