New York City - West Village Street
hang on the
in between memory
arteries that twist
their way into
of the best of times.
Leaving for Paris in a few hours.
I don’t think it has totally sunk in yet. It probably won’t until I am sitting on the runway.
I figured what better farewell to NYC for the next 10 days than sharing a photograph of one of my favorite streets in the West Village: Perry Street.
New York City - Chinatown Rooftops with Graffiti - Sunset
New York City,
the tears that I blink back when I stare into the sun as it slides away from the remains of the day into night;
the dreams which are held close to my heart bound only by my imagination;
the sliver of hope that I have clung to in my darkest times as if hope was the only ledge I could hold onto at the edge of the universe sitting between the chasm of nothingness and being;
the city that holds the key to the rest of the world.
These are the rooftops of an area of lower Manhattan located between the Lower East Side and Chinatown known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. Taken with the Sony A7R this past weekend.
New York City - Cherry Blossoms - Central Park
We dream of springtime
with our eyes closed in winter
as snow turns from white to pink
cascading down on the backs of our eyelids
in a slideshow of a moment
that is hard to grasp onto
but difficult to forget.
This is the Bridle Path in Central Park taken during another springtime. Right now it’s near freezing in New York City and I keep thinking that maybe if I start posting photos with cherry blossoms, the weather will somehow become enamored with the imagery and shift. It could work, right?
I am currently knee-deep in preparation for my trip to Paris. I leave on Friday and it’s hard to contain the excitement at this point. I have been pinning all of my Paris inspiration to my Pinterest Paris travel board and sometimes I have to stop and practically pinch myself because it’s hard to believe I will be there in four days.
I will be taking tons and tons of photo (and video) while I am there. I will be contrasting the Paris of 2014 with the Paris of the 1940s in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris this year. If you are interested in reading more about this trip, here is my announcement post with details about the trip: Paris Through The Lens
Be prepared for NY Through The Lens to temporarily become Paris Through The Lens starting this weekend! ♥
New York City - Sunset - Chinatown - East Broadway
when the sun
past the clouds
as light as
of the fuzzy
of a dream
just before eyelashes
open like a curtain
dawdling night sky.
In preparation for my upcoming trip to Paris this week, I am now in the possession of the Sony a7R with the Zeiss Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm F4 lens (thank you Sony!) which I took out for a walk and promptly fell in love with all in the span of the first few shots I took with it.
I walked over the Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge and it was a pleasure to capture the beautiful spring light that poured over East Broadway. It’s incredible how the sun’s light changes so drastically from season to season. Spring light is one of my favorites. After the brutal winter we had in New York City (I am in denial that it may snow again tomorrow), it was nice to bask in the spring glow.
