Allan Cabrera18,000Attention New York, New Jersey, Philadephia, Delaware, Maryland and Washington DC photograhers......Named after the Lenni Lenape Indian word for slow-moving water, Pennypack Park stretches nine miles, following Pennypack Creek southeast as it runs from Montgomery Couty to the Delaware River. The park covers more than 1,300 acres.The landscape of this rambling city park covers rolling hills, open meadow and many miles of paved and unpaved trails that are great for hiking, biking, running and horseback riding. You’ll also find numerous historic buildings, including a working farm.I suggest going to the Pine Road entrance which is right across Fox Chase Farm. There's tons of parking. Wear your favorite hiking shoes. We will be hitting some single track and fire trails along the creek. Hydration pack and bottled water is also a must. I will be updating this event as we get close to the date. Autumn Photo Walk in the Woods2013-10-19 12:00:0026

Kelli Seeger Kim1,305,221It's +Karen Hutton 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But +Kerry Murphy and I couldn't wait any longer!)Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.  What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.  Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.  We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-)So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058

It's a part of The Public Theater (think Shakespeare In The Park).Adele, Bono, Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, and many more have sung from its stage...And now we're taking that stage together with a giant on-stage Hangout!It'll be the first live-interactive global show in the venue's storied history.

Lotus Carroll1,771,364I'm here in the big city, baby! There is something about this place that just makes me restless… it's like that living pulse that seems to throb through the streets just gets inside of you and doesn't stop. I love it! So, while I'm not sleeping much and sucking up everything I can, I figured I couldn't let my visit go by without a photowalk, and some of my local (super awesome) friends agreed. I know this is last minute notice, but sometimes that's just how it goes. So grab your cameras/phones and join me along with +Titus Winters, +Alan Shapiro, & +Vivienne Gucwa as we enjoy one another's company while doing what we love and do best. :)We'll meet at the High Line entrance on 16th at 5:15 and start walking at about 5:30. Rain gear optional. See you all there! :DNYC Photowalk with Lotus & Friends2012-07-31 17:15:0026

This walk is open to everyone with or without a camera. Even if you don't have a camera but just want to come and celebrate, feel free! This event is all about celebrating the awesomeness of G+ on its one year anniversary! :)-#gplusanniversary #gplusanniversarynycThe Official NYC Google Plus One Year Anniversary Photowalk2012-06-30 13:00:0064

Gailen Mapes69,907Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles.

Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116935056

Autumn - New York City

That chill in the air wrapping itself around trees like an overflowing scarf ,

the crispness on the breeze chilling faces with its autumn kisses,

trees displaying their decorated limbs in golden shades of serenity:

Autumn.

New York in the Snow

Snow is the dream that wraps itself around you

when you are sleeping;

eyelids barely covering the light

from the stars in your eyes

as your thoughts play like

movie montages scattered across

memories from when you were young

and dreams were the fireplace

for imagination on winter nights.

New York City - Moments (and a question for all of you)

I have a request.

I think I speak for a majority of people (especially those of the sensitive-creative-variety) when I say that it's so hard to to gather up the courage to ask for anything. But here goes.

If you have purchased my book in the U.S. using Amazon: (direct link: http://bit.ly/newyorkbook )...

Or if you have purchased my book in Europe and other parts of the world using Amazon UK: (direct link: http://bit.ly/nycinuk )...

...could you take a moment or two to write a review of the book on Amazon?

I know. I know. It's hard to get the fingers and mind warmed up enough to do the deed. I, myself, have bizarre procrastination issues when it comes to writing reviews of things. 

I would be super grateful if somehow all moments in the universe align perfectly... more »

I would be super grateful if somehow all moments in the universe align perfectly to rev up your fingers and mind to write a review of my book!  :)

I would also like to take the time to say thank you to everyone when it comes to my book’s impending book release (it releases in stores in the U.S. in 5 days!).
I have received so many moving messages and comments in the various places I can be found online posting my photography. All those photos you have shared with me with my book arriving to your homes have been so incredibly touching. This is one of the most surreal experiences I have ever had and I am so grateful. I am also trying to brainstorm some fun and interesting ways to thank all of you.



On a related note, I finally had a little time to create a Goodreads Author profile for myself. If any of you are on there too, here is my author profile: http://bit.ly/nycauthorgoodreads .

There is a really great community of book lovers on Goodreads that I am enjoying immensely.

For anyone waiting on the book to arrive, or waiting to buy it in stores, thank you for your excitement and support. It so inspiring. I hope you enjoy the book when you finally get to dive into it.

Much love to all of you ♥.

There is a HUGE post about this over at my blog with tons of photos. It looks prettier and makes more sense and has all relevant links:

New York City - Solitude

In a city full of people the pauses between moments of frenetic activity are some of the most beautiful moments.

These pauses tell their own stories.

Empty café tables just beyond an open door beckon explorers to sit a while and embrace solitude. Faded signs on deep red brick are the left-over pieces of another time’s tales.

And as the late afternoon sun dances along quiet street corners like this one, the evening waits a little longer as it revels in the peaceful slumber of the day.

Super awesome! +SonyAlphaRumors just posted about my New York Coffee Table book (direct link to book: http://bit.ly/newyorkbook ) and my photography based on +Brian Smith 's interview with me earlier this week. 

I usually go to that site multiple times a week to dream about what Sony is planning and hope that the rumors they post are true ;). 

Yay!

This may be the best week of my life, so far. I pretty much started full-on crying (happy tears) when I saw the feature this morning. So grateful and beyond overwhelmed with happiness.

If I have to post one last post for the week, this is one of the best I can share.

I will now go back to crying happy tears and feeling like I am in the best dream imaginable.

Much love to you all, once again. Many thanks to everyone for coming along on the journey. ♥

Central Park - Autumn - New York City

There are moments that remain etched into time:

moments that aren’t easily forgotten no matter how much time passes between the yawning gaps in between memory and dreaming.

Cameras become jars with which to capture moments that flicker like fireflies.

Photographers are moment collectors and dream catchers.

New York City - Williamsburg Bridge

I have started to refer to this time of year as the season of ubi sunt.

Many medieval latin poems start with the phrase: Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt? which translates to: Where are those who were before us? More specifically, the phrase ubi sunt can be translated to mean: Where are they?

The ubi sunt motif is a powerful vehicle for nostalgic meditations on mortality and the ephemeral quality of existence. One of the most famous poems that utilizes the ubi sunt motif is “Ballad of the Ladies of Times Past” by the poet François Villon, which includes the line: “Where are the snows of yesteryear?”

It’s also used throughout several beautiful Anglo-Saxon poems like The Wanderer, a poem which I read and analyzed during a medieval literature course that had an enormous impact on my writing. A crude translation ofthe ubi su... more »

New York City - Williamsburg Bridge

I have started to refer to this time of year as the season of ubi sunt.

Many medieval latin poems start with the phrase: Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt? which translates to: Where are those who were before us? More specifically, the phrase ubi sunt can be translated to mean: Where are they?

The ubi sunt motif is a powerful vehicle for nostalgic meditations on mortality and the ephemeral quality of existence. One of the most famous poems that utilizes the ubi sunt motif is “Ballad of the Ladies of Times Past” by the poet François Villon, which includes the line: “Where are the snows of yesteryear?”

It’s also used throughout several beautiful Anglo-Saxon poems like The Wanderer, a poem which I read and analyzed during a medieval literature course that had an enormous impact on my writing. A crude translation of the ubi sunt musings in that poem:

"Where is the horse gone? Where the rider? Where the giver of treasure?

Where are the seats at the feast? Where are the revels in the hall?

How that time has passed away,

grown dark under cover of night, as if it had never been.”

And so, when this time of year rolls around bringing with it longer hours of darkness that accompany bitterly cold nights, all of the doubts I have about my photography, writing, and my existence froth to the top of my thoughts in an endless series of ubi sunt motifs.

It’s the season of ubi sunt.

—-

I look at this photo and I remember standing on the Williamsburg Bridge with the brisk winter wind whipping past my face as my thoughts meandered into ubi sunt territory.

The afternoon sun had moved behind a cover of bone-grey clouds and my heart was heavy because I felt like I lost the light for the day. I had been meaning to photograph the winter sunlight against the bridge’s architecture. With my confidence shattered, I pondered putting my camera away.

As the shadows cradled the bridge’s architecture enveloping the steel structures in smokey tones two distant silhouettes came into view. And it was a moment that summed up absolutely every emotion I was feeling.

—-

It was during that dark winter when I took the photo in this post that I devoured all of Contacts, a collection of tiny vignettes that explore different photographer’s contact sheets and/or body of work while the photographers explain or talk about their work.

I think I watched the vignette of French photographer Sarah Moon’s work set to her stream-of-consciousness description of her own inward photographic journey over a dozen times when I first found it.

It’s perfect in so many ways and it resonates deeply during the season of ubi sunt. The quote that I hear in my head in Sarah Moon’s voice which follows all the doubting thoughts that play in rapid succession is this one:

“Time goes by. Light falls. I lose confidence. I don’t want to be a photographer anymore…

Then, all of a sudden, but not always, something changes, I can’t say why, maybe I’m just in the right place at the right time, or maybe I believe in it.

However, for a split second, I see a sparkle of beauty passing by, everything goes so quickly now within that stillness, and I’m carried away, and at last I like what I see, and I can’t stop finding it, then losing it, and all day long I keep on, because it once existed.”

It’s the season of transience.

It’s the season of ubi sunt.

New York City - NY Through the Lens: The Book - Party

It's not every day that I can say that I attended my own book debut party where I signed my own book and gave a presentation about my photography. In fact, even writing that out doesn't make it any less surreal. And yet that's exactly what happened last night. 

I was telling someone last night that this year has been such a wild ride in terms of hitting tons of photography (and writing) career milestones that I don't think any of these sorts of events have registered yet in my own mind. If you had asked me if I would be making a post like this 5 years ago, I think I probably would have laughed heartily in disbelief since all of this would have seemed like such a dream.

New York City - NY Through the Lens: The Book - Party

It's not every day that I can say that I attended my own book debut party where I signed my own book and gave a presentation about my photography. In fact, even writing that out doesn't make it any less surreal. And yet that's exactly what happened last night. 

I was telling someone last night that this year has been such a wild ride in terms of hitting tons of photography (and writing) career milestones that I don't think any of these sorts of events have registered yet in my own mind. If you had asked me if I would be making a post like this 5 years ago, I think I probably would have laughed heartily in disbelief since all of this would have seemed like such a dream.

The event took place at the Sony flagship store in Sony's headquarters in midtown Manhattan which was fitting since I am one of 9 Sony Artisans of Imagery worldwide. It was nice to celebrate with everyone there at the first of a few book related events.

Earlier this week, my book hit #1 in New Releases for City Photography on Amazon which was super exciting. While it is available to ship on Amazon (it's here: http://amzn.to/1tEIMrZ ), it doesn't release in stores everywhere like Barnes and Noble until November 24th.

I am grateful to Sony for hosting the event last night. Highlights included cookies with my New York City photography on them (still can't get over the detail!), signing numerous copies of my book with a metallic marker, and getting to celebrate and meet with people who have been following my work. 

Some of my friends also showed up. One of them even ended up winning a camera. 

I walked out of the event to a foggy New York City and as I looked up at the skyscrapers which were reaching up into the fog, I smiled. 

Thank you to those who came to the event. I know it was in an early time slot which made it difficult to attend for those who typically work later into the evening. It was also a cold, moody, rainy night suited for comfy lounging in bed (or in my case, running around with a camera). So, for those who were able to come out, you rock. Thank you so much!!

I will have more info about other events in New York City in the next few weeks. There are some events in the planning stages right now so stay tuned. 

Most importantly, I wanted to say thank you to everyone for being so supportive. It means the world to me to know that there are people out there for whom my photography and/or writing resonates in some way. It's a beautiful feeling to know that. 

View these photos in a photo-story about the event (with all relevant links and more photos) here:

Autumn - New York - Central Park

It’s in the way the sunlight streams through the last vestiges of autumn: as golden as the leaves that hold onto their branches.

It’s in the way the earth bares itself under this fanfare: as vulnerable as new lover’s heartbeats buried under layers of clothing.

Winter’s prelude starts slowly: a distant refrain that works its way through the earth chilled in anticipation.

We slow-dance on this mortal coil to the adagio of life twisting and turning with the whims of the winds that scatter our spirit to the ends of the earth.

It’s all we can do.

New York City - Central Park

We dream of springtime

with our eyes closed in winter

as snow turns from white to pink

cascading down on the backs of our eyelids

in a slideshow of a moment

that is hard to grasp onto

but difficult to forget.

New York City - Skyline and Chrysler Building

Hazy evenings are when

the city’s dreams

hang over its rooftops

like an intricate web.

And as the city wakes

to a night full of promises,

its dreams exhale

on the breath of

the day

like smoke

or too many

heart-filled wishes

clinging to the trailed-off

ends of lover’s phrases.

New York City -  Early Autumn....

Summer’s light falls over the city in early autumn;

a cascading cacophony of hope

that rests on buildings 

like a lover’s touch on bare skin.

While the last of summer’s vines 

cling to the walls 

with subdued fervor,

trees stretch their adorned limbs 

towards earth one last time,

sunlight caressing the city 

with the delicacy of the ephemeral.

And as autumn pines for a kiss,

we walk into the last of summer’s sunlight 

embracing the inevitable.

Autumn - Central Park

Autumn is the kiss that summer lingers a little longer for;

a warm whisper caressing winter’s ear.

And as the trees arch their arms towards the earth,

heavy with summer’s promises,

winter’s grey sky looks on

in envy.

Tsu - Yes, yet another

Another week, another social network: http://www.tsu.co/TravelingLens <---You can use this link to join or whatever.

There is apparently a new one called Tsu that just got a ton of funding and has a really interesting business model similar to YouTube (with YouTube partners).

It's currently closed to public so that you can't view posts unless you create a profile.

To be quite honest, I was curious and wanted to secure my handle.

The model is a few parts intriguing (you profit from your posts), a few parts eyebrow-raising (it's closed), a few parts sigh-worthy in a I-am-a-fatigued-by-all-these-new-networks sort of way.

Anyway, that's all I've got.

New York City - Above Chinatown

It happens like this:

You squint your eyes open

after walking on clouds in last night’s dreams

and the city comes into view:

a vast glistening kingdom built on the shoulders of despair and joy.

As the city comes into focus slowly,

you shut your eyes abruptly

sending up every wish that rests on the tip of your tongue

soaring on the barest whisper of a breeze

up towards the sky.

And then you blink your eyes open

hoping none of this

was in vain.

It wasn’t.

This is a view above Monroe Street in Chinatown.

The neighborhood is also known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Traveling through France (And UPDATES: I will be speaking at PhotoPlus Expo & other stuff below!)

I spent the afternoon going through photography from my adventures in France this year since I am preparing for a few different presentations right now (information about those events below!). I love reliving moments through photography.

When I look through my photography, I can feel everything about the scene I was photographing: the scents in the air, the way the light fell just so, the anticipation of the moment, and every emotion that was welling up inside.

Many words and  TONS (and I mean TONS) of photos here:

1. I will be speaking on a panel at French Affairs Las Vegas this coming weekend. French Affairs Las Vegas is an annual travel B2B conference hosted by France’s official tourism agency Atout France and focused on travel topics with a focus on France and Paris.

My panel topic is: Social Media and Millennials in the Travel Industry. This is topic near and dear to my heart so I am looking forward to the panel discussion.

2. I will also be presenting all three days of PhotoPlus Expo in New York City on the Sony stage about travel photography. My presentation topic is: Traveling with Sony Mirrorless Cameras.

New York City

My New York City Photography book just released in Europe this past week and people have been sending me photos on other social networks of the book and it’s so surreal.

Every time I see a photo of the book, it takes me a second or two to realize that it’s really my book! I see the cover, I think to myself: “That looks like one of my photographs” and then it hits me. It’s quite amusing actually!

I wanted to take some time to thank everyone. It’s been quite a crazy journey so far and in some ways it is just the beginning. It’s nice to meet so many truly great people along the way who are inspiring in their own way.


Sometimes text doesn’t convey sincerity online but I am sincere when I say that I am super grateful for everyone’s encouragement, inspiring words and messages.

Also, after 5 years of posting to my New York City photography blog, I finally had an official logo designed for the blog.

If you are curious about what it looks like (it's so pretty!) and/or would like a link to information about the book, here you go:

In other news, I am heading to San Francisco for the rest of the week with a group of highly talented bloggers and photographers. We will be photographing the city (my first time visiting!), meeting thePinterest team at their headquarters, meeting up with the AirBNB team at their headquarters, as well as hanging out with some of the lovely people at Southwest Airlines. Fun, fun!

Thank you all again for being so awesome and I just may post some San Francisco photography while I am exploring. :)

New York City - Rain - Chinatown

Looking through

the bleary-eyed clouds

that fill the sky above,

the cracks of the city’s

streets and sidewalks

stretch across its body

like wrinkles on well-worn skin

while street signs and buildings

melt into each other

pouring themselves

into a river of colors.

And in the twilight

of the afternoon’s memories,

the sky’s tears fall.

Central Park - Autumn (read below for a link to a post with many other fall photos)...

Around this time every year, I get a ton of messages and emails asking me when the leaves are changing in Central Park and what the best places are to soak in the best of Central Park in the autumn.

Central Park turns into a magical autumn wonderland in the fall.

There is a HUGE write-up about Central Park autumn views with TONS (and I mean TONS) of photos here:

New York City Skyline

There is something really extraordinary about the shift between day and night in New York City.

It’s gradual and at the same time abrupt in its magnitude.

The lights on the skyscrapers flicker on as the night sky pulls itself over the city while the sun is still dancing with the horizon.

It’s this sort of in-between time that seems to suit a city full of people who feed off the frenetic energy and constant shifts that occur on a momentary basis.

New York City rarely dwells in absolutes.

Its landscape and structures only seem to remain still.

Shangri-La Hotel Paris - One of the most luxurious hotels in Paris

There are places that are talked about on late nights with friends. They are the places where you would stay if you were lucky enough; the type of place that you describe which causes everyone to wistfully nod their heads in dreamy agreement. When you come across such a place and find out that it exists in reality, it’s a beautiful moment. I feel fortunate to share my experience at such a place.

I knew I was about to embark on an epic experience when I was offered the opportunity to stay at Shangri-La Hotel Paris during my stay in Paris a few months back. But I don't think I fully grasped the enormity of the experience until I walked up to its exterior and laid my eyes on its grand entrance.

The Shangri-La Hotel Paris is a 5 star hotel that was just recently award Palace status which puts it in an elite group of hotels in Paris that uphold extraordinarily high standards of excellence and luxury.

Built in the late 1800s as a residence for Napolean Bonaparte's nephew Prince Roland Bonaparte, the residence was restored to its former glory from 2006 to 2010 when it opened as the Shangri-La Paris Hotel. It is also a historic monument.

Every drop of rain

tiny illuminated universes

casting their glow onto the city

New York City at night - Rain in midtown Manhattan


Through eyelashes wet with rain,

a thousand thoughts fall

to the ground

and through the raindrops

the city lights blur together

as shadows make their way

into the night

impermanence

registered with

every blink.

Paris - Eiffel Tower

I have been going through my photos from Paris. It's interesting how time colors memory, no?

I took this self-portrait with my Sony A7 from the balcony of my room at Shangri-La Paris Hotel. This was, hands down, one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower I have ever had the pleasure of savoring. It almost seemed completely unreal. 

Cannot wait to do a huge photo-set and post about my experience there. It will be a rather epic post, that's for sure! Will probably post about it early next week.

Autumn in New York City (a look back: info below)


Today was an absolutely perfect autumn day. The air was crisp, the sun exuded a cool warmth, and the sunlight pierced the pavement.

This time of year always makes me incredibly nostalgic. It was the autumn of 2009 that I found my passion for photography. I would walk as far as my legs would take me with my little point and shoot camera which was severely limited in its capacity. I was too poor for a smartphone at the time and remember hoping that the no-frills point and shoot that I bought on sale for $79 could help me capture the city I love in photographs.

I went through quite a few of those early photos today for a client who found one of the photos on my Flickr account. I keep all of my work on my Flickr account, even the early work. It's amazing how far some of those early photos have gone. Not all of my early work is what I would consider good. In fact, most of my early work is rough in terms of execution of what I was attempting to do with the limited tools I had at the time. 

It's important to keep a record of where we have been in life. It helps to put everything in perspective. Most importantly, it helps to track growth and learning. 

I wanted to share a few of my photos from that magical autumn of 2009, 

I can still feel every aspect of each moment I captured with my camera when I look at these...

These accompany a post with TONS of Paris photos (and I mean TONS) here:

Trees,

heavy with leaves,

shimmer in rare bouts

over the city streets

like white gold.

And even

the rain

shimmers against

history-bleached architecture,

as the days linger long,

off the phrases of lovers.

New York City and Travel Photography - Vivienne Gucwa (Interview details below...)

I was interviewed by Jordan Oram for the travel site Wandering Educators. I am honored to have been chosen to be September’s Photographer of the Month there. Much gratitude to the team there!

I don’t often get a chance to talk about my New York City photography and my travel photography at the same time. So, this was a nice change of pace and I was more than happy to answer Jordan’s questions.

I don’t often get a chance to talk about my New York City photography and my travel photography at the same time. So, this was a nice change of pace and I was more than happy to answer Jordan’s questions.

New York City: Tribute in Light

Sometimes it's just the way 

the light catches the eye;

and how it pours itself

up to the sky

watering the stars

and universe

with dreams

and hope,

every speck 

of light

wrapped 

in memory

and remembrance.




With love to New York City on a day of healing.

Martinique - The French Caribbean

Everybody has a magical place or a series of magical places that they conjure up on the backs of their eyelids before going to sleep. The images linger in a never-ending slideshow revealing locales that symbolize a bevy of hopes and desires.

There is a HUGE write-up about this island with TONS (and I mean TONS) of photos here:

One of my magical places has always been a tropical locale.
 
During my darkest moments when the rest of the world seemed bleak and heartless, I would close my eyes as my head sank into my pillow and imagine laying in a hammock on a beach surrounded by palm trees with the sound of ocean waves gently crashing to shore playing in the background like a lullaby.

Travel is one of the instances in life where you get to visit the locations you have conjured up for years, the locations that help you get through the worst of times.
 
And that's one of the many reasons that travel is such a life-altering experience.
 
Traveling to Martinique this year was the first time in my life I had ever stepped foot into a world that so closely resembled the place I had imagined as I drifted off to sleep.
 
I spent a week on the island of Martinique and this photo-set and subsequent post will barely touch the surface of everything I experienced.
 
Martinique is an island in the Caribbean Sea that is located north of Saint Lucia, northwest of Barbados, and south of Dominica. It's one France's overseas regions and is home to around 380,000 inhabitants. Because it is a region of France, the official language of the island is French although many of the inhabitants speak Antillean Creole.

Bushwick - Brooklyn - New York City

Dancing with the shapes

on the walls,

the night’s music

wraps itself

around the day’s memory

as Bushwick

dreams another

night away.



Taken with my Sony A7S.

Photos from Royal Monceau Raffles Paris Hotel - Paris, France

There is a HUGE write-up about this hotel with TONS (and I mean TONS) of photos here:

http://travelinglens.me/post/96672433314/royal-monceau-raffles-paris-a-photo-tour-a

The Le Royal Monceau - Raffles Paris  is a 5 Star Palace hotel located in the heart of Paris within walking distance to the Park Monceau and the Arc de Triomphe. It opened in the late 1920s and has hosted a wide array of people including Josephine Baker, Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemingway, and Michael Jackson. 

It was recently refurbished by the iconic French designer Philippe Starck. And indeed, staying in the hotel and exploring it fully takes you on a whimsical journey into the imagination of Starck.

It was recently refurbished by the iconic French designer Philippe Starck. And indeed, staying in the hotel and exploring it fully takes you on a whimsical journey into the imagination of Starck.

By the time I stayed at the Royal Monceau, I had been traveling in France for nearly three weeks at the tail-end of an adventure that took me through the south of France and up to Paris. I was a bit saucer-eyed and woozy from travel and travel photography. However, Royal Monceau made it impossible for me not to completely unwind and have my own smile-worthy adventure within its walls as I discovered the whimsical genius of Starck and grew to appreciate the Royal Monceau's high standards of excellence.
