Snowing today in NYC

Unbelievable snowy fairytale happened today in NYC. Adults like with kids trying to catch snowflakes with their tongues :) Dogs in colorful coats wandering through snowfall and warm white silence of Central Park.
I love such weather even if my feet are wet. It reminds me of childhood. I'm happy again.

Yellow city

It was just a catching glimpse of NYC life stream. Chelsea in the morning.
NYC taxis around Chelsea neighborhood. High Line City Park.
I was waiting for my clients to start a portrait photo session when this picture just caught my attention. Sooo much yellow :)

Urban view

It's one of the best spots to look at shiny NYC's skyline - across the river from Manhattan you got to Brooklyn. There is a beautiful pier with water taxis and infamous Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. And there is that view :).

The city moments

I was shooting another family portrait photography session in Central Park yesterday and just stuck there afterwards for a while. Crowds were enjoying nice weather and it was that amazing feeling of NYC's craziness at the same time, which I love :)
Most colorful person in the city
I see this guy in every NYC's parade. You name it - he is there. First time I met him at Easter parade in our very first year here, in New York City. Then Saint Patrick, Halloween, Mermaid - he is always around or in the parade :)
He was circling with those jars on the top of his head for a while
At first there was a bunch of guys dancing together, circling around and doing crazy stuff on their roller-blades. But every year their number were growing and suddenly a couple of years ago I saw a poster read that they are now an association. And they were fenced :) It didn't change the thing though. They are still great at having fun.
Public art installation on the streets of New York City
Walking to the subway by w46th St I stumbled upon these art installation. Quite catching and I haven't seen it before. Just took a few snapshots as memorabilia.

Taschen New York: Portrait of a City Exhibition

Great book! Just great book! Must have book :)
Great party! You shouldn't have missed it :)
See how much fun was it:
There were plenty of books to look through, great folks to mingle with, open bar, and nice prints on the walls.
Now this is my brand new t-shirt I designed :) after 3rd drink!
Just kidding :)
Photo made by amazing guys working at Levi's workshop.
Everyone was doing their way around NYC's skyline to get it printed on a t-shirt later.
Jumping or kissing? I may say only that at the end of the night I found a t-shirt with these kissing guys lying on my photo-bag! Have no idea! Honestly!
They got their own t-shirts I believe. Besides the fun they had.
He just stepped out of the picture I think. Didn't see how he walked in the workshop anyway.

This moment just caught my eye by the movements happening in all 3 plans.
Am I handsome! Yeaaaah :)
