yes, i know, i have a goony expression. i always have a goony expression in photos! i'm also *literally* a foot taller than miss amy. in this pic, i am half-sitting on the parapet... and i've still managed somehow to loom! ah well. nothing can dull my enthusiam for what i feel must be pretty close to the PERFECT summer day in nyc. even the weather, which can be (and has been!) seriously humid, was lovely!
also on the roof of the met this summer, is imran qureshi's amazing painted floor! a different artist is commissioned each year, and the art is always bold, but this is almost breath-taking, in a number of ways! it's also the back-drop for what i think is my best shadow self-portrait to date:
while on the upper east side, of course i couldn't resist showing off the guggenheim and the (currently being renovated) cooper hewitt museum. to have two such remarkably lovely... and remarkably different... pieces of architecture within a block of each other always blows my mind!
as does the gelato at ciao bella, though admittedly in a completely different way! did i mention it was the ♥PERFECT♥ summer day in new york? well, it bears repeating! thank you amy, and thanks also to the girl and to the boy, for sharing a little piece of your vacation with me, what a pleasure to hang out with you guys! come back SOON!!! ♥♥♥
*in case you're wondering, "is she as lovely and friendly and amazing IRL as she seems online?" the answer is, "nope... she's actually EVEN NICER!" so now you know!!! ♥
