New York City - Snow - East Village

...a sweet dusting of white

on top of glazed chocolate concrete

that melted on the tongue of memory

like a dream.

Willemstad, Curaçao is not only one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen but it is also a World Heritage Site (UNESCO). It was established in the 1630s when the Dutch captured the city from Spain.

Took this a few hours ago and it is perhaps one of the most favorite photos I have ever taken.

Makes my eyes fill with tears from how beautiful this moment was tonight.

The Queen Emma Bridge on the island of Curaçao was built in 1888 and is the world's largest floating bridge. The bridge swings open regularly to let vessels into the harbor. While opened, pedestrians can use a free ferry service.

Taken a few hours ago while the bridge was in the process of getting ready to swing open.

I am going to the Arctic!!!!!!!!!!

I just got off of a 45 minute phone call with Evan, Commander Hadfield's (the astronaut who performed the first ever music video in space of Bowie's Space Oddity) son.

I am going to the Arctic!!!!!!!!!

It's an expedition with Col. Chris Hadfield and 12 other artists, writers, videographers, scientists, etc... on a Soviet icebreaker for 15 days in the High Arctic of Canada.

Thank you EVERYONE who showed their support. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate this. I wish I could literally hug you all!!!!

I don't even know how to process this?!!!!

Travel photographer and writer based in New York City.
Introduction
Photography found me a few years ago and I found, in turn, that photography and writing are two of my biggest passions in this world. 

I now spend an inordinate amount of time photographing the world and writing about it.

I couldn't be happier.

In fact, my book containing my photography of New York City along with my writing is being released this autumn. It's available for pre-sale on Amazon right now. All info and details about the book can be found here:

I don't know what I could possibly say that hasn't been said already regarding this beloved late-night East Village establishment. The fries are potato perfection: slightly crispy and golden on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside. Their wide array of sauces is unmatched and I am personally fond of the pesto, mango and wild mushroom sauces. Every time I am in Pommes Frites, a number of people are ordering the poutine which looks heavenly. The only negative I could possibly come up with regarding this spot is that the lines can get super long especially on the weekends. The East Village is home to many bars and fries seem to go well with a bit of inebriation making the wait a bit long at times.

This is a really low-key, understated Thai food restaurant. Their curries are incredible and they have curries I haven't seen listed in many other places like pumpkin curry. The prices are reasonable relative to the neighborhood and the vibe here is a relaxing one. The staff is also very attentive and they offer free-wifi which is always a plus.

Look, I think that anything I attempt to say about this place will never quite suffice because it's really *that* good. However, I will attempt to explain why I frequent this taco truck with wild abandon and why I have even told people on more than one occasion that their burrito is akin to a metaphorical food of the gods. This is authentic Mexican food at its finest. It's not laden with salt to make up for a lack of seasoning. It's not generic tex-mex. It's no frills, super tasty (they don't know the meaning of bland) and ultra fulfilling Mexican food done right. Let's talk about their burritos. For $7.50, you get a gargantuan burrito packed with cilantro, the tastiest rice of its kind around (if you opt for the vegetarian option which is *excellent*), your choice of meat, lettuce, queso fresco (fresh), onions, chopped tomatoes, guacamole and a nice tiny sprinkle of fresh grated cheese and sour cream. If you ask for it 'hot', they really pack a punch with the spice so unless you are ready to commit in that way, you may want to first try it without the super spicy stuff (which, by the way, brings the burrito to a whole other level of awesome if you love hot and spicy food). There was a 3 day period a few months ago when they weren't on their typical corner and I was in a serious panic. I can't imagine a world or the East Village without this beloved truck.

Whoa! I found out about this place from Yelp. Living close to it, I have passed it quite a few times since reading about it but haven't had the time to try it out until this fine evening. Knowing that it frequently is full of NYC cabbies (and seeing this every time I pass it) looking to have a great meal added to it's appeal for sure. I just ordered a bowl of rice with 2 sides (I chose #4 and #7 sides today) and oh my.... this is *seriously* the best Indian food I have had in NYC, hands down. Not only that but everything is obscenely cheap! I cannot believe I just paid what I paid for this! Also, the rows and rows of Bollywood videos lining the walls are great to browse through while waiting for your tasty meal to be heated up. You would never, ever imagine such gastronomic delights existed within since it's a fairly tiny and definitely under-the-radar sort of place. Will be going back for more!
