quite the drive.

I drove upstate with my dad and boyfriend to the Woodstock Museum in Bethel, NY. We took the scenic route home, driving through historic towns along the Hudson River. Above is the Philipsburg Manor in Sleepy Hollow. Prior to our rental car excursion, I didn’t realize how close gorgeous scenery was to the chaotic concrete jungle known as Manhattan.

i heart ny.

I went to Water Taxi Beach for a co-worker’s birthday party on Friday night. I had no idea the view was this stunning. More than once that evening, I stopped, sighed, and thought about how lucky I am to call this amazing city home.

More pics after the jump.

A Gem Rediscovered

I’ve always been a fan of Dave Chappelle, but sort of forgot about him the last couple years. I had to do some “scandal” research at work today, and stumbled upon this video of one of my favorite Chappelle bits. Take a look.

Lovely

There were billowy bushes of hydrangeas all over Montauk last weekend. Mother Nature hit it outta the park with this creation. Perfection.

Preview of Tonight’s Nightmare

Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt never cease to horrify. Their notorious photo sessions hit a new low yesterday, when shots of the pair posing with various guns were posted on Pacific Coast News. Spencie’s wardrobe choice of a backwards cap once again demonstrated his creative prowess. Call me un-American (talking to you, conservative uncle) but should everyone really have the right to bear arms?

See more photos, plus a video, here. Look at your own risk.

pride parade 2008

My favorite image of the day

Yesterday, a couple friends and I ventured to the west village for the pride parade both for the cultural experience and to show our support for our beloved gay friends. I brought my 30D to document the parade, after a forewarning from my friend, Michael, that there’d be amazing costumes. He was right. From the headpieces to briefs to spandex, it was an eyeful. I walked away from the parade soaking wet (sweat + rain), with 300 images on my memory cards, and an even greater love for New York City.

Word.

A poignant (and timely, given it’s Pride Week in NYC) plea to stop homophobia and stay within your personal bubble. 

Thanks, Rich. I’m proud to work down the hall.
