getting into the holiday spirit.


winter wonder

ugly-sweater party!

upper west side dream

double exposure

all aglow


sidewalks transformed

sometimes i forget that new york is place people come from around the world to photograph. 
i see it through eyes that have seen it for seven years. 
and so i cease to see. 
until i remind myself to look up and around. 

this year, since i'll be staying in the city, i'm making a concerted effort to celebrate the transformation of the island in this month of december and to allow myself to be swept up and away by the holiday spirit. 

ps: that picture of me was taken just before i headed off to an ugly christmas-sweater party. strangely enough, my parents were off to an ugly christmas-sweater party themselves--i on the upper west side, they somewhere in the houston metropolis. funny, huh?
