I've listened to countless songs raving over the beauty of Chelsea, I finally was able to visit. I actually visited twice in the past week with my wonderful friends (& fellow photo adventurers) Eve and Colin. The Pier reminds me of San Francisco, back in California, also near to where both Eve and Colin are from.
View of New Jersey from The High Line. If you've never been to The High Line, please go, NOW. There's something so beautiful about the contrast between the nature and the indusrial old subway platform.
Eve and her lovely pentax.
Second time around in Chelsea!

Amazingly eccentric people in a gallery.

The world as I know it changes so rapidly here in New York City. Every single day is a new experience, a new obstacle, a new light at the end of the tunnel. The city is a lot to digest and I'm trying to take it all in gradually, trying to savor every part of this experience.
While the first few weeks have been full of ups and downs, I'm starting to see this place as a home. The collective of artists and photographers here is incredibly inspiring, I feel challenged but motivated.
Here are some of the random things I've been up to since I've been over here...
New York City has nature beyond Central Park.
DUMBO near the Brooklyn Bridge. A beautiful, serene spot that my RA took our floor to.
Vegan food in the village, way too beautiful to consume.
Mr. Jesse Eisenberg, a lovely addition to NYU's Welcome Week programs.
Some guys light sabering in Washington Square around midnight, no big deal.
New friends! Mark & one of my roommates, Emily.
