Below are my top 12 picks of photos I took with my iphone & instagram. This year I got an iphone for work and discovered the app- instagram and it as been one amazing year documenting life unfold through the lens.
I was driving home waiting at the red light. I looked up watching the sun set over 125th St.I thought to myself the Apollo
Theater never look more magnificent. So I rolled down my window and took this photo.
What I love most about NYC you see everything. I was finishing up with a client in Central Park
when I noticed the pedicab guy checking his Facebook.
It seems like I am always in Central Park. I decided to go the green lawn to enjoy my lunch before meeting up with clients.
It wasn’t particularly hot that day, but it the first time in a long time since the sun was out. And it felt good just
to have it shine all over you. I rolled over and saw this girl taking full advantage of the sun too.
I was on assignment up in Stony Point, NY. I decided to take the Bear Mountain Bridge back to the city.
The fog was think looming over the Hudson River. I just had to stop and take a photo.
It was COLD outside. The day before was a big snow storm in NYC, where I thought I might had to cancel
my outdoor session in Central Park. We decided to work with the snow and have fun. I was shooting my clients near
the fountain. When I turned around I noticed she was having her photo shoot too.
I have lived in Harlem for over 8 years. I have never actually been to the Harlem Day Parade. I have been either working
or on vacation. This year I didn’t have anything schedule and the parade was right outside of my house. So I decided to attend
and it was great. And this photo of Mason I captured took me back in time.
LA was just beautiful. I had never watch the sun set like this before. My boyfriend and I sat on the beach in Venice and
watched the sun set over the Pacific Ocean. If you haven’t done it before I say DO IT!!!
I was on assignment in Harlem capturing the essence of Easter Sunday.
“I have been attending Shiloh Baptist Church for over 38 years, says Obe Everett after attending services in Harlem.
” I always dress nice and not just for holidays.”
Shoe shinning are you kidding me. This was just a wonderful find while running errands on 125th. St.
Two friends fishing in Rockland Lake. No words needed.
I just love , love LOVe this photo. I was on the platform at 34th street waiting for the D train uptown. When I notice the pay phone.
When I saw the broke phone hanging I wondered when was the last time I used one.
Surprisingly enough it was last year in Queens when my
cell phone died.
I went to Florida for my grandmother’s funeral. I am not a big fan of funerals I don’t like my last memory of people
in a casket. I didn’t want to remember my grandmother like that. I want to remember her as the one who gave me chocolate cake,
sodas and let me eat all of the candy I want. She even let me and my sister walk down the street to the corner store on our own.
She was a strong, loyal and loving woman who made a profound impact on my life even though she could never say my name right.
To her I will always be Carutha.
While I was at the service I couldn’t bring my self to look at the casket. So as I distracted myself looking out of the window
I notice the usher crisp white gloves. And it gave me a sweet memory of getting dressed up and going to church with my grandmother.
So this is my favorite photo for 2012.
