{travel: new york city}













"One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years."
~thomas wolfe

. . . a few summer weekends ago, spent a few hot and hazy days in new york city, days filled with early morning swims, bellinis and brunches and sundrenched terraces, afternoon markets and dusky shops with herringbone floors, glasses of perfectly chilled champagne and red velvet cupcakes, sunset in the park and long, lingering moments soaking in the intoxicating energy all around, leaving with memories of dinner on the very last night among topiaries and carrera -- oysters to start, followed by seared sea scallops, rocchetta, medjool dates, lardoons with champagne vinaigrette . . . and it was farewell until next time . . .

I don't know anyone that can capture emotion to tell the story with photographs like you. It never ceases to amaze. I have loved NY from the first moment I traveled there years ago and the photos almost made me get teary because I miss it so. It's strangely unexplainable how a place can come to mean so much to you when you have never lived there, but it does. Thanks for reminding me that I have to hop a plane ... and soon.

The soft light in these photos is just dreamy Roseline!

Still sorting through images of my little New York trip. Always so completely fascinated with all the architecture there,I find myself constantly looking up at the buildings it's a wonder I haven't tripped and fallen into a gutter!

Love how you've captured the energy of the city, but some quiet moments as well...

Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

My heart aches! My old stomping grounds.

I feel like I belong to New York even when I don't want to. I talk about it badly but deep down inside, it will always have a place in my heart.

These are such stunning photos!
I like coming to your site for photography inspiration. (I do portrait photography in Atlanta.) Would you mind sharing with me how you got these tones? I went to Provincetown, MA this summer and would love to play around with my images.
If you could give me some Photoshop direction, I would sure love it!
