Captured By Belle: Stroll Through the Americas

2minxinx2minxinx2minxinxAfter one of my interviews, I had some time to kill until I headed to another. I told you guys I was getting on my job hunting head set. The first interview was eh… Don’t get me wrong, The interview went great, I usually do pretty well on those things, but the actual job itself was pretty much a drag. You know that feeling you get when you just walk into a pyramid scheme. That’s what I got, even though it wasn’t. The company seemed legit, but something about it just gave me a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. And yes, I did get a call back.

I was strolling through the city, Avenue of the Americas to be exact. I had my camera in hand and a lens I never use. It was time to put this 75-300mm to good use. I noticed that with this lens, I have to have some decent space in between myself and the subject. So now that I had some open space, I was free to shoot as I pleased. When I was younger I used to take my dingy old cameras and take pictures of city life. I’m sure I can find some pictures somewhere. Yes, my editing skills were horrible, my equipment could have been better, but for what it was, it was pretty decent.  This time, I just w anted to get comfortable with the camera in public. Usually in the city, people just look at you as if you’re a tourist. I just kept clicking, tell me what you guys think.2minxinx2minxinx

2647 Harlem’s Grand Opening

1aOne of my lovely friends Tanya, invited me and our little clique to join her in the celebration of her boyfriend Richie’s new business.

After all his hard work, the opening to his new lounge 2647 Harlem had just arrived and I couldn’t wait to catch up with all the girls.2Richie wasn’t the only one who had a good night, Tanya was basically hosting the entire night, making sure everyone was okay,

but she also took a big part in displaying some of her work as well.

The stair case that leads to the soon to become VIP section  was filled with her work.
1She did absolutely great and I loved the colors she used. Especially that gold, wow.5

She had this whole 1920’s flapper jazz style going on and the details  were on point.4

I specifically loved the how linear and geometrical the prints were….6

Look at that city landscape ..gorgeous.3Notice how all the girls are busy taking glamour shots..

hahaha…

it’s just that we haven’t seen each other in so long!

The place was great, I loved how it looks as if it were supposed to be an old school Speakeasy.10
