New York City is my favorite set of skyscrapers, beating hearts, and busy streets. Â I always feel at home here mingled inbetween many strangers’ shoulders – peering through the outlines of their necks and scarves for the next street sign. I came her with my mentee from work and while the work hours were stressful, the evenings were an were like an old friend’s embrace.
Reprocessing this old photograph for Throwback Thursday editing stirred up something. This photo was taken in 2009, the week of July 4th. We were up visiting family and had just two days in majestic, gritty New York City. We rushed everywhere and I remember scarfing down Nathan’s hotdogs and admiring the organic way the city pulsated with people and cars and noise between the concrete, glass and scaffolding. I haven’t been back since and I really want to go after spending five minutes with this photo.
