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!

New York City (Part One)

Last month a group of us art graduate students at KSU traveled to New York City with the main aim of seeing the Whitney Biennial (and of course lots of other museums and galleries). It was my first time in New York, and I absolutely fell in love. Since we had a crazy busy schedule and had to stay together as a group for most of it I didn’t have much time to take photographs (especially with cameras other than my phone), but I did manage to capture a decent amount, too much for one post at least.

Day one was spent walking around to some galleries and to visit a KSU alum who lives/works in NYC. Since we didn’t arrive until late afternoon it was a rather brief day exploring the city.

Day two was a much busier day, filled with a lot more walking. We walked along the High Line greenway, through central park, and saw lots of art of course.
