I went to New York City, not for the first time, but for the first time with no expectations.. Nothing I needed to accomplish, nothing I “HAD TO SEE” for the first time. And because of my 365 Project, for the first time I was visiting New York City … solely as a photographer. I went to see what I could see and shoot what caught my eye. I read up on some street photography blogs before leaving. I thought I might try my hand at a few new styles and techniques while there. And wonderful things happened to me all weekend, both with photographic experiences AND with extraordinary human connections with complete strangers. For the first time … I actually could FEEL that I was there As a photographer! It may sound so simplistic to hear but for me it was a rather profound epiphany.
