The Essence of a Place

Have you ever found yourself in a place where there are so many interesting details that you feel compelled to capture them with your camera? It’s the feeling that I experienced recently while in New York City during my photo workshop. I was fortunate to stay in a very eclectic Soho loft for a few nights. The feel of the old building and the unconventional atmosphere of the apartment were so fitting for the neighborhood. Running a photo workshop doesn’t give you any leisure time, it’s go, go, go non-stop from beginning to end. As I was making tea on the first morning, the light streaming through the windows made me grab my camera and capture these few snapshots. When I look at them, they bring me right back to the feeling of the old loft which is forever attached to my NYC experience.
