The streets of New York City are alive. When we were walking out from our hotel one afternoon, we saw the Michal Medina representatives going out to shoot some photos outside in the beautiful sunlight. I took this opportunity to go with them and get a couple of shots of my own. The way the light was coming down from the sky, was like a spotlight. The professionalism of the models was absolutely brilliant. They knew just how to move to make the photographs come alive.
This is how the streets of New York are every day, all day. You never know what you are going to see, experience or feel. The hustle, the energy, it is all around you, and there is no way possible to take it all in. The only way you can ever hope to, is by being ready with your camera. Having it set up, with your finger on the shutter. Maybe, just maybe then, you might be in the right place at the right time to catch the magic that happens in life.
If there is one thing that I have learned as a photographer, it is to always be aware of your surroundings. Sure, you might actually miss out on the fun that people are having because you are the one capturing it. But, the moments that you come away with, are yours to keep and share with the world for the rest of your life, and hopefully from there after. The next time you are walking the streets in your town, be aware of the magic that is all around you. You never know what you might get to see.
