Trainspotting



I feel like I haven't written or posted anything substantial in a really long time. I apologize for the dearth of posts but I believe that my excuse is a valid one. I'm at the cusp of finishing my nursing degree so my energy, productivity, and creativity has been redirected for some time. Now as I look forward, I can definitely see myself carving out more time for self-made mini-projects as well as collaborations with couples and families. To be honest, I never thought that my photography could unfold to be a full-time professional endeavor (props to those that shine and hold their own in this ever-changing industry). After reading various blog articles/arguments, soul-searching, and figuring out how to cultivate my love for this particular art form, I've decided to play be content with where I am right now. I'm not labeling myself as a hobbyist, enthusiast, semi-pro, etc. There will always be labels. But! I really do enjoy my craft, even if I don't make lots of money from doing it. To my past and future clients, thank you for your trust and allowing me to be a part of your lives. I certainly would love to continue doing what I do without worrying about building a business and brand. So that being said, my portfolio will be maintained for couples and families looking for portraits/event coverage. But this space, my photo blog, will be just that--my photo blog. Simple? Right? Whew.

Now that we're back on track...(pun intended)

There's a story behind these pictures. Some of them might look like I (illegally) stood on the train tracks. Obviously, that is not the case. I got into the first car of the 7 train at Grand Central station and then snapped away all the way to Main Street station. I never saw the tracks and Queens this way and needless to say, I had a great time. Gratefully, there weren't many people in the train or on the platform (I think it was at like 10am). All photos were taken by my handy dandy iPhone 4S and edited with VSCO pack 2.
