The majority of the time, I like to showcase my work on here, but today – I’ve decided to give you a little background story on what my “work trips” are like.
Since I posted yesterday about New York Fashion Week, I decided that today, I’ll tell you what the rest of my trip was like ‘outside’ of working the events.
Last time I was in New York, I stayed with my friend Holly, who lives in the financial district. She lived with 3 other roommates in a huge loft, one of those projection-cinema displays on the wall with a huge 80 in. gold frame to compose the image. Holly works doing web design and whenever we meet up, it sounds like she’s working on HUGE projects for well known companies. She’s always got something interested going on, and while I was in town in September – we met up for breakfast and talked about her trip to burning man.
This time, however, I stayed with my friend Christian who lives in Brooklyn. While some people might be a bit hesitant about the neighborhood, I was actually excited to experience another part of the city. Christian lives with 2 other roommates, and has a crazy sales job that’s got him living the epitome of a New York lifestyle. My first day in town, we cruised out to one of his favorite spots to eat – the Meatball shop. On the way there, we flew through a stop sign and for a second I thought I was going to die. ”Don’t worry about it, that’s just how people drive here – the cops don’t care.” (Side note, Chris is originally from Cologne, Germany – so when saying that last line in your head, do it with a German accent.
Over the 3 days I was in town, I made every minute of my stay count & probably lost a day’s worth of sleep as a result. Don’t mind the trade off though – got to see some friends & family I haven’t seen in a long time, always great to catch up.
Anyways, here are some personal photos from my time in New York.
Some random photowalk shots:
