It's easy to forget that where we live is incredible. Whether it's the city or the suburbs, surrounded by nature or a concrete jungle---There is beauty everywhere and it's important to take a moment to enjoy it. It's hard when work piles on and the days get short. Your surroundings become routine and mundane, but you gotta realize that someone out there wants to be right where you, so revel in this moment and be present.
I've lived in New York for more than two years now and while I snap photos on my phone all the time, I just realized how many of those photos I must have lost over the past 712+ days....really regret not getting a higher storage phone. Anyway, here are some of the photos I haven't lost. They are records of the moments I've taken to appreciate how lucky I am to work and live in this amazing city.
*Most of these are taken with the iphone6. I wish all of them were with my camera, but most of these shots were taken when I least expected them... when I didn't have my camera.
