Oh The Sights You'll See

Being in the city so often for my job at Simone Perele, I see a lot of crazy, amazing, and beautiful things every day. May it be a secret Little Japan under a four star hotel or a giant stuffed dog in the window of an office, it never gets weirder than New York. And that to me, is an amazing thing.


Here he is! I pass this adorable stuffed dog everyday on my way to work. I named him Hubert, but I'm sure his rightful owner gave him a proper name of his own!


The Empire State Building. I'd never seen it from this angle before...at first I didn't recognize it!


A shot from a little Italian cafe where I got the Antipasto and Margarita Pizza.



Gotta give my pop cred for this photo!



This quote really stood out to me when I passed it...it is not only very clever and poignant, but also true.


Delicious soup that I had at the secret Japanese restaurant! I can't imagine how my dad found this place, it was hidden under a hotel!




yummmm


The waitresses even wore Japanese garb!

I am in love with these photographs. How on earth can anyone resist New York City?! :)

Becca said...

I've thought of moving to the city many times. It hasn't happened yet, but maybe it will one of these days. I love the idea of just seeing so many interesting things everyday as I walk to and from work! And that Japanese restaurant looks so good, the soup especially. I'll have to look it up for next time I'm in town.

Danielle Barbe said...

great photos and inspiration - you have a very good eye for photography and "ordinary" things that aren't quite so ordinary.

love the quote and the first photo.
