Not that I don't adore you, my readers, but I take most of my photos for my mama. Whenever I see something beautiful or interesting I usually bust out my camera and snap a few photos in anticipation that my mother will eventually see them. The other evening my aunt called me out to the balcony to alert me of the beautiful sky hanging over the village. These are the photos I took from that evening.
I take a lot of photos from this vantage point, but they never get old to me. It still amazes me that I can call this view my home, and that I am lucky enough to live where I do.
Too bad my mama couldn't share this view in person with me. (even though she is perfectly happy exactly where she is!)

I hung out with this guy recently, and I think he is a totally awesome artist. Not that I am well educated or knowledgeable about art, but I'll be anticipating this first show. You can view more of this work here.
Just a little break from photography to show you a cool new artist based in Brooklyn. (actual photos from our hangout to come next week)

All giggles aside, my friend Henry & I attended the wedding of Rasheed and Laila last week. I took some engagement photos of the couple last summer, and was more than honored to be a guest at their wedding in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Rasheed and I go way back to my Albany days, and I met his beautiful wife just after they started dating two years ago. I'm excited for them, as they truly share an endearing connection.
Congrats again Rasheed and Laila, we love you!!

I met up with my friend Nika, who visited NYC for the first time as an adult. I was excited to play tour guide, and to spend some time with Nika and her boyfriend. Nika was traveling in Europe the same time as I (and also used Helpx, so she can tell you how great it is as well) and met her BF during her travels.
Such a sweet girl, and I was happy to take them on a 2hr boat cruise around the tip of Manhattan...and of course we hung out in Times Square (only for you Nika!)

I tagged along with Anthony, to Harlem for a little memorial day BBQ action. Some of my favorite characters that are always at these Funsport/Hard 2 Guard events include Edgar, Doug, & Rock.
We ate some delish cooking, played some softball in the hot, hot sun and enjoyed the umm, action of the day!
Last summer, we attended the same BBQ, and I only watched the boys (and few girls) play, so this year I joined in on the fun and am glad I did.
