So I’m back from two back to back trips to New York, New York – firstly to attend a food photography workshop given by Penny de los Santos (with the Minx and the Husband tagging along) and secondly for Blog Tour NYC and the Architectural Design Home Show. I am still processing all I learned, saw, thought and felt, though I will be blogging the bejeezus out of everything in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for sumptuous shops, stunning restaurants and sexy hotels.
In the meantime, by way of an introduction, here are some of the sights and characters of New York City, which are still buzzing round my head.
One day I AM going to start a Tumblr called ‘Hipsters in their Habitats’.
Loved this hardworking little guy down in the subway.
Love truly was in the air.
Pilgrimage to PurlSoho. Check.
Remember when we did a ‘Go Fug Your Room’ on Diane Von Furstenburg’s NYC penthouse? Well here it is, seen from the magnificent new High Line Park. I couldn’t quite see in to see if she’d taken our decorating advice.
Gorgeous chartreuse green tables and chairs on the High Line, and windows that look like makeup palettes.
Ladies in green.
Photogenic taxis? Check and check.
For some reason people kept mistaking me and my Canadian friend Danielle – fellow foodie and street photographer extraordinaire, for British tourists. Can’t think why.
But I forgave her wearing that scarf when she introduced me to Balthazar’s.
Fabulous street art everywhere.
Can anyone tell me how water towers work? Do they collect rainwater? They fascinate me.
Lots of neon.
New York truly is a melting pot.
And obviously many iconic tall buildings.
I’ve never been a big one for street photography, but I could get completely obsessed by it in New York. We didn’t have a huge amount of time for it on this trip, but I WILL be back. I love this city so much.
