A Building Not Mine – New York, New York

“I love New York, even though it isn’t mine, the way something has to be, a tree or a street or a house, something, anyway, that belongs to me because I belong to it.”
– Truman Capote

I spent part of this week visiting a good friend of mine who just moved to NYC from Spain for love…  We first met in Verona, Italy while both of us were visiting and became fast friends.  Just a few months later she left her home country of Spain, along with all of her family, to begin a life in New York City.

New York has this energy – an energy I find difficult to describe in words on a blog for fear I can never do it justice.  The streets are art – without trying to be so…

I could’ve taken at least a thousand photos, but decided to keep the camera in my bag for most of the time (only snapping a few here and there) and simply let myself enjoy good friends, excellent food and the energy of the city.  I’m glad I did.

    You really don’t have to be from New York to be “From” New York. It’s more a state of mind than a presence or history.

    beautiful shots…less is more. i for one have not found it possible to focus and connect to through the camera and connect and focus on a friend at the same time. good choice.

      When I am alone my creativity can take over. When I am with friends, my creativity is only gathering inspiration quietly.

    I’ve always wanted to go to New York. Those photos are stunning – the light, the curves, those reliefs.
