A Great Adventure

Safari Londolzi (1)

I didn’t know what to expect when we set out for South Africa. To be honest, I was quite nervous and very skeptical of the romantic aspect that had been advertised; this was our honeymoon after all. I’ve never been that far from home and although I had been to northern Africa and the Middle East, this was a whole new world… the animal kingdom. My most recent experience with animals had been a trip to the Natural History Museum and zoos growing up. I didn’t realize how much I was missing when I let this be my only relationship to wildlife. What I had yet to learn was that safari and ultimately Africa would change my life.

The conversation about safari started a few months before our wedding. We didn’t know where to go and on one fateful night over dinner with friends, I asked what their best trips had been. One couple answered with all their passion and excitement “SAFARI“. I wanted to do something extraordinary, I wanted to go someplace far so that when we tell our kids, they will be inspired to discover the world too. We flew into Johannesburg and connected onto what was at the time the smallest plane I had ever experienced (until this harrowing flight), landing on a tiny strip in the middle of the African bush at Londolozi Game Reserve.  I was more nervous than excited (you might be too after the three shots and two medications you have to have before arriving) until I walked into the lodge, was handed a glass of champagne and looked out at the view in awe. I couldn’t guess what the next day, our first drive into the wild, would hold, but I knew at that moment I was living in a dream…

Spring Time

All images shot on 35mm Tri-X 400 film

I keep hearing spring is just around the corner, but with the weather in NYC lately it’s been harder and harder to believe… so I decided to make my own springtime by visiting the archives and remembering the gorgeousness of warmer times in the city.

I can’t wait to bike along here, stopping for a sunset drink here. I can’t wait to see the lineup for this and I’m really looking forward to THIS…. We always hit this up multiple times a season and I hope to be inspired here, here, and here and this should be a lot of fun!

Now if only it were spring.

The Lucky Ones

Shot at Ann Street Studio on February 28, 2013 on Hasselblad 500C TMax 100, Tri-X 400 and Rollei 25

The first time I met John Jannuzzi was right before he took his current editorial job at Lucky Magazine; we shared a cab to the showrooms of Oscar de la Renta during NYFW and for the entirety of the drive he had me giggling with his snarky, sharp, cynical humor. It was love. John is one of those guys I wouldn’t mind running into no matter what mood I’m in, because I know he’ll be in a mood too and at least we can have a laugh about it.

Just follow his Twitter to see what I mean…

The editor on style:

“All I can tell you about fashion and style is this:

buy and wear what makes you happy.”

Living with Art

All Images shot at Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Italy on black & white Tri-x 400 film.

When I walked into Piazza della Signoria in Florence on the #GrandTourista I was overcome by the beauty of the endless amount of emotion circling around me in these statues. What must it be like for Florentines to walk by these breathtaking pieces everyday? I was very surprised whenever I brought up the beauty of the art, the locals were just as proud as I was in awe. Even though they have lived among these works all their lives, they still see the power and passion.. and how can you not?
