My trip to NYC & Maine in Photos
For my 27th birthday, I decided I deserved a little vacation. My sister lives in NYC and always welcomes me to come visit her. I also have some amazing friends who live in the city and along the east coast and seeing them was just the perfect birthday present. I have a very sweet spot in my heart for Maine. When I first moved away from home at 18, I took off to Maine to attend college. It was a huge leap for me & though I lived there only 2 years before moving to Boston to finish my studies, it remains that place that gave me independence and a true sense of self. It was there that I really began figuring out my identity as an artist. I also really really love the Maine landscape and people, and will take any opportunity to see my lovely photographer friend, Emily, who I met in my first year of art school. She’s one of those people who consistently inspires me to grow as an artist and as a person.
My week consisted of lots and lots of walking with my camera. And lots of catching up with friends & my sister. It was exactly what I wanted & needed. I browsed flea markets, antique stores, ate amazing food, sat on rooftops in Brooklyn with friends, and laid on the beach in Maine. It was a whirlwind, but the most complete vacation I could have asked for. I think it might need to become an annual birthday trip.
So here is my little collection of images from my trip…enjoy!
