These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Like it all

DUMBO - sounds like a total antithesis to the area - but then when you think of a wild elephant it fits - I - large , strong and even grey - like that
looks and sounds like an exciting area to be living/developing in.

Interestingly, DUMBO isn't very gray. It's largely orange and blue.

Here's a colour version of the photo I posted yesterday:

JC- I only saw the movie once, so I honestly don't remember.

backwards- these were taken with a Nikon 5400. Sometimes i use a D70, but I didn't on these photos.

Viv- Sometimes it's very hard to decide between the colour and the black and white shots.

Alfie- I find most of the best things are.
