|the Apple Store in the Big Apple|
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I LOVE, WORSHIP and ADORE New York City as much as I do the invention of Caller ID and York Peppermint Patties.
NYC is my ‘soul’ city because it’s where my heart was born.
I guess you could say that after my first visit, when I was in my teens, I became a ‘born again’ New Yorker.
And for those of you who might be new to my blog, I lived there for five years.
Wednesday I spent the day in NYC, which was work-related, but ANYTIME I go to that city it’s a treat because simply walking the streets and taking in all the magnificent energy it provides, I always come back with a reboot of ‘life force’ and creativity.
I barely had enough time to enjoy the city because I had work to do for the time I was there, however, I did manage to take 118 photos (and don’t ask me HOW, but I did). I just kept snapping photos wherever I walked, like a crazy person. The thing about NYC is that no matter where you go, there are always so many different things to photograph. The Big Apple is a ham for the camera because it’s one MASSIVE photograph of such extreme diversity, that it entices you to take its picture.
The cool thing about taking photographs in NYC is that there is always a picture within the picture.
Yes, photographs do it much justice. But in order to fully experience the city you have to BE there. Because it’s not only what you see, but also what you FEEL when your feet make contact with the ground.
The key to enjoying NYC as a visitor is to throw yourself into it; allowing it to give you the thrill ride of your life.
But I guarantee that the ride will be one you’ll be glad you took because you will step off being altered.
It might not be a city that everyone could live in, nor a city that everyone enjoys as much as I. But it’s certainly a city that should be experienced at least once in your life.
Because there's nothing like it.
