Forgive my absence for two months on the project (I’m very upset about this.) But, I wanted to share this belated shot on a beautiful September fall day in Flatiron. The light hits the tree beautifully but enhancing its bright green leaves as they hang on for another month or so!

Author Inspirations – Warhol At The Met

Quote

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” – Thomas Merton

A recent trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art gave me a glimpse into some of the famous works of Andy Warhol and those inspired by him. Below is a gallery of photos I snuck in from the exhibit (shh, don’t tell!) I admire the way he inspired many by his active role in advertising, celebrity life & questioning traditional viewpoints on sexuality & political discourse. All of these things are seen vividly through his colorful works as well as the famous artists after him that he has influenced.

Share with us your favorite Warhol works!

Farmers Market Delights!

‘Tis the season for fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers! During this time, I love visiting the NYC Union Square Farmers Market to check out the fresh produce & plants that the upstate farms are bringing to the city. Not only are you accessing the best produce in season, but you’re also ensured that it’s coming form a sustainable environment.

Please enjoy these photos as a beginning to the colorful assortment of healthy living!

Kicking into high spring gear, I wanted to share my assortment of colorful changes I’ve seen in the New York air as well as my own personal style.

It’s great to appreciate your surroundings as well as give yourself creative freedom and bring your personal health & style from winter drab to summer fab on the inside and outside!

12 – 27.3 Photo Project

Another month and another picture taken in Madison Square Park, NYC. Time taken – approximately 10:00 AM.

In only a short month’s time, you can already see the green leaves starting to grow back on the bare branches that winter provided. Now that spring has officially arrived, these trees are itching for some leaves and bright colors!

12-27.2 Photo Project

My 2012 photo project continues..

[This picture was taken February 28 around 1:15PM from the opposite angle of the January photo.]

My immediate reaction was that you can already see more branches growing on the barren trees in such a short amount of time! It could also be an effect of the abnormal mild winter NYC has seen. Since October, there has been one or two snow days only. In addition, I can assume the average temperature has been in the 30s/40s (as compared to 10s/20s during this time of year.)

I find it to be such an amazing and beautiful thing to see the evolution of nature and how quickly it can change..
