My Top 20 Moments of 2020

This tweet by Joél Leon really resonated with me — “ sit down. make a list of all the things you’ve accomplished this year, big and small, in the midst of a global pandemic and statewide uprisings—started a business, learned a new language, won an award, started a new hobby, found love, found a therapist, etc. honor your wins.” So I’m doing just that, to remind myself that my direction is more important than my speed.

Halloween in NYC

Happy Halloween! John & I make a couples costume every year & this year we are Timmy Turner & Trixie Tang from Fairly Odd Parents. The best part is that we didn’t have to buy any new clothes to dress up. I was inspired by Christine of Tour De Lust to shoot these photos under the FDR — the lavender purple color matched perfectly with our characters.

Afterwards, we walked around Pier 17 & got Halloween cauldron drinks by the water. For dinner we had drinks & ramen at NR, a Japanese restaurant in the Upper East Side. Hope you had a spooky & safe Halloween!

MoMA Moments

Two of my favorite things to do in NYC are visit museums & shop at small markets. John & I went to Greenpoint Terminal Market to check out the vendors & grab some food. I saw a Calathea Ornata plant with pink variegations on it & I knew I had to take it home. Next we drove into the city & went to MoMA. I had this art exhibit bookmarked for the longest time & I’m glad I had the chance to finally see it in person. Afterwards, we passed by this beautiful wedding reception on 53rd Street & went to Eclair Bakery & Surreal Creamery for some desserts to-go.

The Oculus

The Oculus is a place that is usually super crowded with tourists & New Yorkers commuting to & from work. It was practically a ghost town there on Thursday night when I went to shoot these photos. While it does make for an easier photoshoot, I definitely miss the hustle & bustle of Manhattan.
