Walking in New York City is one of my favourite things to do when I’m in the Big Apple. Since I usually travel alone, I don’t eat at nicer restaurants, or go see plays, or shop. My thing is to be able to see as much as possible, and take as many photos as I possibly can. So I walk a lot, often until my feet are so sore that I can barely take another step at the end of a long day. I just wish that I could find some kind of shoes that would allow me to keep walking without wrecking my feet. I always feel like I can walk just one more block, or one more hour, and by the end of the day I have blisters on my blisters, and my poor feet throb with every heartbeat. A few days later though, I always feel that it was well worth it. After all, who knows when if ever I will return to the place I’m photographing.
I was looking for a particular location for the magazine I was shooting for, and the Momo Falana dress shop in SoHo was right across the street from the police station on my shot list. It’s the building reflected in the windows of the dress shop. The colours and textures of the dresses, doors, and all the other elements grabbed my attention as I walked by. I had no idea that this place even existed, and it is a good example of a cool spot that I can find, just by walking around Manhattan. I’m looking forward to being back in New York City soon, there are about a million more places to discover, and I have a new pair of walking shoes!
Road Trip Update
Last few days here in Florida with my friends Rob & Mylene and their dogs. It has finally warmed up to the point were I can believe that this is Florida, and not Siberia. Did a bunch of shooting around the old city of St. Augustine. Captured a few cool sunrises and sunsets, and have been able to relax with good friends. I’ll soon be in Savannah and the weather looks like it will be perfect for shooting. I’m staying right in the middle of the historic centre of the city, so I should be well situated to get some great shots.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
