New York City - Above Chinatown

—-

I turned in the writing and photography for my New York City photography book to my publisher yesterday morning. The moment I turned everything in was probably one of the most terrifying and happy moments of my life.  

I have been waiting to post the news to this blog more than anything because quite honestly, this is where it all began. This is where I first started posting my photography.  I am eternally grateful for all of the support and amazing experiences I have had here on Tumblr for the last 4 years.

 From the bottom of my heart: thank you

It happens like this:

You squint your eyes open 

after walking on clouds in last night’s dreams 

and the city comes into view:

a vast glistening kingdom built on the shoulders of despair and joy. 

As the city comes into focus slowly, 

you shut your eyes abruptly

sending up every wish that rests on the tip of your tongue 

soaring on the barest whisper of a breeze

up towards the sky.

And then you blink your eyes open

hoping none of this 

was in vain. 

It wasn’t.
