Paper Roses

It's hard to believe that the Holidays are right around the corner. Stores in New York like to jump-start holiday shopping with festive windows immediately after Halloween. One of my favorite window theme trends is the "handmade" look - probably started by Anthropologie (which reminds me - need to go check them out!). So I was pleasantly surprised by the tastefully simple white rose and snow flake designs Sephora created for theirs. These were shot at the new location in the Meatpacking District of NYC - which I highly recommend visiting. It's uber chic with black surfaces throughout that showcase artwork like "Flamenco Tornado", a distorted Flamenco dress-sculpture by E.V. Day, and Chihuly-inspired light fixtures (this may actually be a Chihuly piece - I just can't verify it :( ). I was asked not to photograph inside, so we will just have to make due with their windows :)

An Evening Commute

In between buildings, huddled under umbrellas, rushing down the street

Rush hour in New York City - usually just an unpleasant necessity during the work week. But on this rainy Fall day I stopped and looked around, and the evening's rain and fog romanticized for me the otherwise industrial landscape. These images were taken at the World Trade Center, outside the Path train. I'm sure there will be lots more of these to come!

The street opens up as I get closer to the empty space that was once the World Trade Center

In the middle of this space is the Path Train, which goes into New Jersey

A quick look up before I go down into the station - The Freedom Tower is looming above
