The Big Apple

I'd love to say I've been doing a lot of work this summer, but that's not the case. Instead I went to NYC for my birthday haha. Really enjoyed myself, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I didn't really take my camera out when I was just wandering the city, but one day I did take it out, I made it work.


This is the greatest building in the world. Say hello to the Seagram Building... So perfect!

And what the hell, yea I looked like a first time flyer, but it was worth it because clouds are so fucking beautiful!



  1. I never got to see the cloud pictures! I love them, clouds are so incredibly magical!

  2. They've got everything there! Great mix of photos. I like The Starry Night, because Van Gogh is one of my favourites.

  3. Yea the clouds were amazingly beautiful!

    Thanks Sharon, Mark Rothko and Malevich are my two favourites that I saw. Rothko's are just so mystic and Malevich's are simple and effective.

  4. dill, awesome pics - so jealous of your trip and witnessing amazing art

  5. Dillon, the Rothko room at AB/EX was the only one that I saw with benches so you could sit and contemplate the art. #16 is an amazing piece. Rothko said, "Often, towards nightfall, there's a feeling in the air of mystery, threat frustration..." I think he captured it well.
