On our travels in America we got to spend a good week in the beautiful, badass city of New York. NYC is one of those strange places that has something slightly magical about it, and being there in Fall was truly something. We walked our asses off exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan, eating divine vegan junk food and meeting interesting, like minded-people we knew from Instagram. We also became pretty experienced at taking the metro, thanks mostly to all the vegan restaurants we wanted to visit.
I think one of the reasons I loved New York City was that there’s just always a vibe, something exciting happening somewhere. I’m not normally a fan of congested cities with cars hooting and people walking by in a hurry all the time, but there’s just an air of excitement and liveliness. I felt like I was literally in a movie whilst walking the streets of Manhattan, seeing Times Square at night and going to a Broadway show. Brooklyn felt like a completely different city with all it’s street art and retro coffee shops and people from all walks of life. Then there’s Central Park with all those Fall coloured trees and pretty bridges and fountains.
I didn’t take too many photos on my digital camera, but I got a few fun pics from an old film camera I took along on our travels. I haven’t quite got the hang of focusing with it just yet, so excuse some of the blurry images and my repetitive use of shallow depth of field.
