Busy, busy, busy

Well, it was a busy weekend in the world of Toute Ma Vie Photography. First, on Saturday, we shot the South Warren Fire Hall Honorary Chief Beauty Pageant. It was amazing to see the girls from this area so confidently representing themselves and their community. I was moved . . . definitely. What a great group. Congrats to all the winners!

Today, I went out with a very sweet girl to take some senior pics. We headed to Sherando Park and Old Town Winchester. Stay tuned for some great pics -- she is just such a cutie! So, now it is off to the editing board . . . anyone else do anything fun this weekend? :)

Who inspires you?

and who do you inspire?

My list of inspiration is pretty long . . .
just a few - my parents, my husband, my friends, the people I work with, my students, and lots of photographers: David Jay, Scarlett Williams, Me Ra Koh, Matt and Sarah Antonino, Gary Fong, Shelby Martin, Neal Jacob, Joy and Garrett Nudd (edit - had to add one more -- Robin Pesa from Bellissima) and so many others.

New York City!!!!!

So, Sunday through Tuesday, I took a group of my students to New York City to experience "Les Miserables" and the cultural experiences of a big city. We had such a good time. Here is the trip, in pictures . . .

First, in our town, the local paper will publish pictures of people who take it on vacation with them. So we took "The Daily" to NYC . . . (I'm in the WC hat)

Views from the top of the Empire State Building . . .

Self-portrait . . . he he he. I love mirrors.

The kiddos at the top of th ESB.

I always love the "up" pictures. I have a ton of these from travels in Europe. It makes me feel really short though (yeah, I know that I am).

I am not sure what church this is, but there were tons of beautiful churches in every part of town that we visited. Just walking along, and there would be this beautiful building amidst the sky scrapers. It was awesome.

Okay, this is the funniest sign in all of NYC. Seriously, can you feel the sarcastic tone? I just laughed and laughed.

I wish we had gone here . . . too bad I don't have that much money.

Lots of Times Square pics . . . I love how busy it is - and how bright it is at night. It just embodies the busy-ness of NYC. We spent a good amount of time here -- plus seeing a comedy show at the HA! comedy club. If you are ever there, and want to see a good show -- go there. Seriously, my stomach hurt from laughing so much. It is on the north side of Times Square, just keeping walking on Broadway uptown -- it's on a road to the right (I think right near the Hershey store).

Finally, a few pics of the World Trade Center site . . . as everyone says, the sheer size of it is amazing. I just cannot believe that there are people in the world that think something like crashing a plane into a building is a good idea. I will never understand hate.
Hope you enjoyed the trip! I know that I did. :)
