Lasting Impressions – New York, New York
You can “know” someone online and yet not really know them – and for all the world-shrinking abilities of the Web, nothing is quite like meeting up with people face-to-face. I was lucky enough to meet up with some great online friends recently in NYC for a fun day of shooting and conversation. But as we traversed this great city, I was struck by the large number of detached people running around quite oblivious to who they were with and where they were at – each fully entranced by the culture of the self. It was a stark juxtaposition between my group of six people who made an effort to make contact and those surrounding us so totally caught up in the self on their screens. We will return to my usual fare of Urbex adventures tomorrow, but wanted to thank Leanne, Stacy, Robyn, Nicci and Robin for a wonderful time getting to know each other.
