New York, New York.
In April I was lucky enough to spend a week in New York with my then girlfriend (now fiancée) for a week filled with photography, shopping, sightseeing and lots of walking. She had been before but it was my first time in the states; I didn’t really know what to expect but I was not disappointed, it was like walking around a film set and trust me we did a lot of walking! So much in fact, that on the 2nd day I had to buy a more comfortable pair of trainers which in New York was not a problem at all.
Kith was the best looking shop I’ve seen and we nearly walked right past it, but thanks to a very loud but friendly New York builder we were pointed in the right direction.
Ready with new shoes, we headed for the Top of the Rock observation deck. This was something I was really excited about and again, it did not disappoint either. The weather was perfect, it wasn’t busy and after about two hours of shooting, Rose had to drag me away to go and have breakfast.
Brooklyn Bridge was another favorite, I really enjoyed the views and after seeing so many photos I wanted to get some of my own.
The light in New York was incredible. Everywhere we went, this light seemed to follow us. This was especially true in the MET & the New York Public Library.
I proposed on a rowing boat in the middle of one of the lakes in Central Park, this nearly didn’t happen because I underestimated how hard it would be to find but we did and I did and most importantly she said yes!
When we arrived the weather was foggy and raining, luckily this only lasted a day.
Most of my favourite photos were taken as we walked from place to place
