A Manhattan Winter

I prefer to spend time in New York in the early winter because the Holidays/New Year always brings out a fresh energy in the city. This winter, I headed down to Manhattan to spend some time with fellow photographer Sivan Askayo. It was great to meet an online friend in person. Sivan and I talked about our families, personal and professional goals, and of course, New York. Sivan was kind enough to take me on a tour of her favorite places and shops in the city while we exchanged photo tips.

In a city as massive as New York, I actually find myself drawn to small visual details: a bright red storefront, a pop of graffiti, a wreath hung on a garden gate. These details are everywhere, all you have to do is pay attention. Everywhere I looked, people were busy shopping, greeting friends, and warming up around a hot drink. I love capturing the city in such great spirits.

Happy 2013 & happy travels!
