NYC in Film | Personal Work

Monday, October 12, 2015

June 1st happens to be the birthday of my bestie and her twin sister.  Since they don’t live in the same town (or country for that matter) we have made a bit of a tradition out of taking a girls trip in celebration.  This year, 7 of us met up in New York City.  Visiting NYC has always been on my bucket list, and getting to explore it with some of my fave girlies was so much fun!

The city that never sleeps! It’s so true — I’m not sure we slept much at all.  With so much to see and do…art galleries, shopping and culture to fit in….there’s no time for sleep.  We gorged ourselves on fashion, food and fancy cocktails, it was the kind of trip where you need a vacation after your vacation.

I decided, while on tour, to break out my film camera, the one I used more than 15 years ago when I travelled around Europe.  Before digital was the norm in photography.  I knew it would be a bit of an experiment.  With film you don’t have the luxury of checking the back to see if your shot turned out, although it took me a while to stop looking down at the back of my Pentax K-1000 out of habit 🙂

I would like to keep the traditional art form alive and print these in the darkroom, but that takes time… so for now you’ll have to enjoy the low quality digital scans.  To the beautiful women in these portraits: I love each and every one of you so much and am so glad we got to explore this insane city together!  I heart you too, NYC. I will be back!
