Yesterday, we found ourselves veering off to the Lower East Side while walking from the East Village to the Financial District. I was hoping to pick up some free macarons from Macaron day but got turned off by the lines and distracted by other sweet things, like gelato. I've always wanted to try il laboratorio del gelato but for some reason or another, never got around to it. The Ludlow street location looks like a squeaky clean and shiny well... laboratory.
This is also probably the first time since last August that I've used the 24-70 for personal work. It's a fantastic lens but doesn't get a lot of love from me, because it's heavy, large, and slow (erm, though that last point is arguable).
Yet another distraction from macarons was the super cool "Single Fare 2: Please Swipe Again" exhibit at Sloan Fine Art. I first learned of the exhibit from the ever-so talented Jelaine, whose charming little Buddha painting was the first one we saw there. Below is just a quick glimpse of some of the highlights.
A good number were already sold by the time we went! I can see why, though, as some were really outstanding with an amazing level of detail in them. Anyway, it was great to see this ubiquitous object inspire all these artworks.
So, no macarons, but still not a horribly shabby Sunday afternoon.
