Halloween pumpkins under storm clouds after Hurricane Sandy. Williamsburg Bridge, New York City.

It’s true. Power has been restored to Lower Manhattan east of Broadway from 14th Street to Canal Street which includes my neighborhood of the Lower East Side. I have never been so happy to see traffic lights working before! I got home, did a little dance with my boyfriend (my post-apocalyptic companion extraordinaire) and my cats (really, we all danced) and then went and took a very, very, very long HOT shower; the first in nearly 5 days. 

I will write a real write-up of what the last 5 days was like and look for ways to help out those who lost way more than power and water. Tonight though, I am going to enjoy having lights on, having internet and having the ability to take a hot shower. My legs are numb from all the walking but man, is it good to be back to some semblance of normal. 

Will be updating my Hurricane Sandy Flickr set  shortly with the remainder of photos I have from the last few days as well.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent messages, tweeted at me words of encouragement while I was being grim on my Twitter and left sweet comments. So much love ♥.

Happy Halloween. Balloons. Lower East Side, New York City.

 Sometimes there are moments that occur that are so whimsical and perfect for the time of year that it makes you stop dead in your tracks and smile the widest smile that you can accommodate. This was one of those moments. 

I was walking around my neighborhood and a man was standing perfectly still with a gaggle of black balloons the day before Halloween. In typical New York City fashion, passerbys hardly even blinked an eye. They sort of resembled a very large bunch of grapes. I am sure they were for a Halloween event. At least I would like to imagine they were.

Happy Halloween everyone!

Lulahween. Halloween happens for cats too. Lower East Side, New York City.

 One of my cats whose name is Tallulah (named after Tallulah Bankhead) is what I like to describe as “Halloween-colored”. Every year since she was a tiny little thing, I have referred to Halloween as Lulahween. It seemed fitting to capture her posing with pumpkins and various other autumnal fare this year. She loves the camera! 

She is a tortoiseshell colored Maine Coon, or at least is suspected to be one. She valiantly chose me to take her home from an animal shelter I worked at nearly a decade ago. 

Happy Lulahween everyone!

Hopeful zombie. Part of the #gplushalloween event. Lower East Side, New York City.

Google Plus released limited-edition Halloween effects to the new Creative Kit in their photo-editor on Google Plus and invited people to join a “ghoulish (and good-spirited) photo competition” using the kit on their own photos. All you have to do is have fun using the Creative Kit on one of your photos there and then tag your entry with #gplushalloween.  

This is my first entry for the competition using a self-portrait I took of myself recently !
