kickin' it NYC style

they are framed by a Picasso in the background- of course I forgot to write down which one!

Yesterday was one of the best days, all around, in general I have had! For a myriad of reasons(not in any particular order!)- I got to shoot; I was with my husband (sans kids); I got out of the state; I saw fine art at the MOMA ; it was beautiful perfect weather; I was with two of the nicest, most genuine people; I had my crocs on! I had linguini and clam sauce and pistacio gelato! Oh and I got to lie down on the disgusting New York City sidewalks! What a most perfect day I had with Kate & Ted- we went to Central Park- found this awesome observation tower near Shakespeare's Garden in Central Park, rode the subway, took a cab, ate in Little Italy- went to MOMA and saw some of the most wonderful art pieces in the history of the world! I had never been before and I actually got a little verclempt- and almost cried- I was really overwhelmed at being so close to a ginormous Monet, and seeing Picasso's famous piece Les Demoiselles d'Avignon was so moving and intense. I was surrounded by Cezanne, Klee, Gustav Klimt, Kandinsky, Matisse, Warhol- I could go on and on. And here I was amongst these masters trying to create my own slice of art. Extremely humbling and energizing at the same time. I was so motivated by the creative energy that was there and all of the people who went to see all of that incredible work. I couldn't wait to share some images and have been working on them all day so Kate and Ted can see them! Enjoy!

Awesome shots - I love the unusual angles you get and the light - worth lying down on the sidewalks for as you get awesome results!
