BACK TO BASICS

BACK TO BASICS | Citizen Couture

Can you believe this was NYC just two months ago? This snapshot was taken a day before NY Fashion Week Fall 2010, where the city was generously dumped with a foot of snow. I walked around a park nearby my apartment and captured the snow-covered benches just as a random person walked perfectly into my frame. I found myself in a peaceful state when I scavenged around my neighborhood while the streets were quiet and empty, with only the wind whistling and the soft crunch that my boots made with each step. I felt time slowing down for a few seconds and it reminded me of the simplicities that life offers, such as how a cup of hot coffee felt heavenly in my hands on a cold day and the first sip just warms my heart. It’s really important for me to frequently remind myself this because living in a city such as NYC can be such as rush where losing track of time is extremely easy. However, like most people, I have a love and hate relationship with the city that I grew up in and I can’t imagine myself anywhere else.

    this photo has an airy feel to it which is actually very moving.

    and your words which grasp on appreciating the simplicities of life are very important when living in a big city that has so many aspects continuously pulling us away from this.

    a beautiful photo
