Want you to see everything, want you to see all of the lights

29 Mar

For this travel Thursday I thought I would show my photos from Times Square in New York from about a month ago.  I wanted to share these in my week of New York photos but I had so many that I thought I’d save them for another day which happens to be today 🙂  What I had imagined Times Square to be was actually 20x’s bigger in real life.  It was a place that I’m glad that I saw in NY but if I went back, I’d probably focus my time elsewhere.  It was a gigantic sight to see and had so many moving parts that were almost too mentally stimulating.  I left feeling a bit exhausted but now I’m glad I can say I went to NYC and stood in the busiest area and just soaked it all in.  Anyway, here are my photos from the vastly covered in lights area.

A recruiting station right in the middle of the area.

Tall and skinny in this perspective.

The mecca of Forever21’s!!  I did not go in but it’s definitely larger than life.

Walking up the big red steps in the middle of it all.

One of my favorite shows, New Girl!  Chelsea would appreciate this 🙂

Broadway.


The Chase building was showing clips of Ken Block and The Art of Flight.  It was cool to see some action sports being broadcast in such a highly populated area!

And of course, some horses 🙂

What a week it’s been!  One of our morning shows (Alice’s Sarah, Vinnie, Uzette and Icky) won $13,000 through the lottery and the band Fun. stopped by the office yesterday to hang before their shows in SF.  Beyond that, I’ve spent time with great friends and the horses.  It’s been a week where I’ve been able to reflect on the fact that my life is good.  When you truly start doing the things in life that make you happy and you work hard at your commitments, life really falls into place.

New York, New York

24 Feb

I have hundreds of photos from my East Coast trip that I’ve been trying to sort through and lots of great things to come this weekend.  For now, I’ve managed to get through sorting some of my New York photos and here they are.  Enjoy!

There are people just pushing these carts down the middle of the street everywhere.  It’s pretty funny.

The park by the statue of liberty.

Hop on, hop off.

I absolutely love street art like this.

Eyes in the sky.

Shannon and I at Carrie Bradshaw’s house in the village.

I love arch-ways in architecture.

More filming.

Old cars and taxis for the movie or show they were filming!

We stayed in the Garment District where there were all kinds of fabric stores everywhere for all of the fashion/art students.

This was really special.  They were hand made tiles in memory of the 9/11 victims attached to a car lot fence.

I love my friends so much.

Brunch downtown at a cozy diner.

They are so cute : )

Press.

Something I’ve realize over the past few weeks is the importance of friends, family and time.  Time is the best gift you can give somebody because you will never be able to get it back.  Make sure you give it to the right people.

And with that said, don’t take any moment of your healthy life for granted.  Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you do something well worth your time : )!
