My latest trip to New York City in 10 photos

My latest trip to New York City in 10 photos

My relationship with New York is a romantic one. Like the one of a 12 year old kid and his obsession with the girl next door. I come to New York at least once a year to get away, to get recharged, to get inspired, and most importantly to recharge my creativity.

New York City is a magical place. Everything is happening so fast, and to keep up is nearly impossible. Some days I take it easy by going to get a slice of pizza somewhere, and somedays I can’t stop, I become one with the madness. One thing is for sure, no matter how many times I come to New York, I’m a bit sad to leave, but smile at the thought of coming back. If I can find an excuse to come back, count me in.

Here are a few of my favorite shots from my most recent trip in no particular order.
