I just returned from an 11-day trip to the East Coast, including a week spent in New York City with my husband as an early 15th anniversary celebration. It was bliss. We stayed in a very bohemian 5th floor walk-up apartment in the Village and spent our days exploring and without an itinerary, which is how we like to travel. We hadn’t been back there since I went to college north of the city a decade and a half ago, and it felt nostalgic and new at once. Taking so many street and documentary photos also made me realize that I need to make more space in my life for personal work, so that’s my goal as winter nears.
For those interested in technicals, I shot all of these with what I call my “little camera,” my Olympus OM-D e-m5 with a 17mm f/1.8 lens. It wasn’t quite pocket-sized but it was much less conspicuous and much easier to tote around than my usual rig, and I loved the results.
