Bright Lights, Big City

As long as I can remember, I have felt a pull between two opposites- a love for the countryside and a love for the city. While I am completely at peace in the country, there is something about big cities that makes my pulse race in the most exhilarating way.

The traffic. The noise. The people. The lights. The buildings. All of these things and more capture a piece of my heart.

I love staring out a window many stories in the air, taking in building upon building with skyscrapers lined up as far as the eye can see.

Especially at night. When light and darkness meet halfway.

For the next few days I will be in and around New York City, and my heart is filled with happiness. I have a weekend filled with not only the excitement of the city, but also the company of family and friends, ones who it has been too long since I've last seen.

Midweek, I move on to Massachusetts to spend time with some more close friends who I also haven't seen in far too many years, and I most likely will be MIA for a little over the next week; I hope during that time you have many moments of sweet bliss, as I intend to enjoy many of the same.

I'm with you. I'm from just outside NYC and lived for about 10 years in Boston. When I'm in those cities, I love them. But, when I'm in Virginia, I love it, too. :)

It's funny, I dont paint often, but if I do my paintings almost always feature a window... I"m certain this says something about my psyche! I love these scenes and am suddenly itching to paint!

Sounds like I wrote it myself. Seems to me maybe the perfect life is half the week in the city and half the week in the country. When you have the two opposites you enjoy each more. Maybe one day...

What a great post - I love all of these images. There is something so perfect about photo shoots in the city, especially when the wardrobe is as stunning as you've featured here.

I have to say the sounds of NY is one of my favourite things about the city.

I hope you had a fantastic time!
