New York, New York, Big City of Dreams

 Once upon a time, I wanted to be a photographer (“picture that, how many years old, young enough to mix up love with career goals“).

Every year, I’d visit family in New York and would yearn for my next photo shoot of my favorite city. These are some of the photos I took, most of which I developed the old-fashioned way, by hand, from negative to print, in my most favorite place of my teenage world- the darkroom.

Flipped when I later saw this guy in Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” video

(he’s wearing an elephant nose- only in New York City)
