Final Snaps from NYC.

Years ago, my mom bought me a Nikon D3100 after months of convincing her that I wanted to get serious about photography. And here we are, years later, and I'm finally truly committed to putting some effort into learning the incredible art. I haven't taken any official classes, though I had the privilege (read: baptism by fire) of being the chief photographer during our medical mission trip to Mombasa, Kenya last summer. It was there that I felt my confidence slowly develop as the moments I captured grew more and more vivid. You can check out those photos here.

And as you now know, I bid adieu to good ol' NYC last weekend and am back in Richmond, VA, alternating my time between here and DC. It's been quite the transition, and I'm still (slightly) struggling with feeling settled, getting that "I live here" feeling. Every day it becomes a little realer.

Anywho, one of my final days in NYC was spent marveling at some of the things that made me fall in love with the city in the first place. From street markets to Fort Greene, and the Empire State Building and Molly's Cupcakes (who have THE best cupcakes in the city), I used my first day off the job to warm my camera up for some higher quality memories of this great, great place.


Views from the Empire State Building:

So happy to have experienced this with my Angie!

Stopped by the Rockefeller Plaza Farmer's Market!

 So appropriate for my current 30 Rock binge. ^_^

 Finally tried dinner at Cecil in Harlem...delicious! 

Fort Greene with the lady I started this love affair with...Elle! 

Molly's Cupcakes...the best in town! (Creme Brulee is my favorite.)

Do you have any fast photography skills you can share? Comment below...They're much needed!
