.wander around aimlessly.

half a week is over now… the good thing, if you have time and money left, you can wander around aimlessly. just floating through the streets, random faces passing by, you are alone under 3 million people. target for the day is were to eat, and searching one of the thousand cute little cafes with open brick walls to have an amazing coffee and cookies in the size of my head.

target for the day – fulfilled!

next target, human observing, and stealing moments! a social study from the first worlds owner in their own urban environment.

stay tuned…

.locals only.

Hey friends,

the day is over. we´re laying tired in our apartment in brooklyn. it´s quiet. i missed the sirens from over the day, it gives you the wonderful permanent feeling of being in the slightly rotten apple. the never ending flood of influences gives you a mixed feeling from tension till discontent. it is superb dirty. not in a disgusting way! it is… charming.
carry bradshaw would end up with that clause:
… are we local now?

hahaha

we have a wonderful time here! the locals are amazingly pleasant, and i find myself thinking one hundred times a day: ” wow, i would love to live here for years!” each neighborhood is fantastic unique in his own way. my favorite is dumbo for the next two hours, since we join another one!

hey folks,

no worries we´re still alive. first impression is strange familiar. i love how the people act.

it´s paradise on earth for a human observer. never saw so many layers of people in such a small environment.

the first day was so rainy, that i shooted as usual in black and white, but i will give u an colored update!
