Remains

It's been a hectic few days, scrambling to meet a few deadlines before I leave for Iceland (!). I'm heading on a food press trip that my pal, Nicole, was unable to attend due to scheduling conflicts. So, lucky me! I have a love-hate relationship with travel; while I very much look forward to the new experiences and amazing photo opportunities of every trip I take, I am a nervous traveler and have serious flight anxiety (yeah, I know it's silly). Not to mention, the mad rush to get a large chunk of work done before definitely takes its toll on my physical well-being. AND not to mention being in stuck in lurching traffic on the way to JFK. Damn logistics.

Well, I'll need to become a better traveler, because I still have quite a bit of it ahead for me in 2013. And of course, I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the travel experiences, just that I wish I were better at not being so damn worrisome over it all.

For now, a photo from lunch with Nicole at Dumont. When the couple next to us got up to leave, we both instantly reached for our phones, wanting to capture the perfect imperfect beauty of lunch remains. So much of what I shoot gets fussed and styled with; it's wonderful when I find a scene just beautiful as is. (My iPhone version here; Nicole's here; SLR version below).


I hope to sneak in a post or two from Iceland. Until then!

  2. Some of my favorite moments I capture are ones I stumble upon in cafes, hotel lobbies, restaurants... something just draws me to the scene.

    And I am seriously jealous about your Iceland trip. I've been dreaming up a trip there for a few years now but other things have managed to get in the way. I can't wait to see your photographs Alice...

  10. Just found your blog, and it's beautiful. Safe travels! If you prefer sleeping on the plane, take Nyquil about 20 minutes before you board your flight. You'll be out cold for the whole trip!

  12. hi Alice!
    i think you know how much i love "the after" shots as well. it came up in a recent conversation with a man whose father owns a bar. i was saying how i am always disappointed when the table is bussed too quickly, and in turn he invited me to shoot at his father's bar, saying his dad never gets to cleaning up very quickly ;)

  13. Oh so exciting! I just booked a month-long trip to Iceland this summer (and am a little worried about what I'll be eating over there) so I am EXTRA stoked to see your thoughts and photos from your visit.

    Also, I totally relate 100% about travel anxiety. I'm always fine once I get to where I'm going, but my actual travel days I'm usually a total wreck!

  14. Safe Travels, Alice! I can completely understand the anxiety around flying. On my way home from Sydney the turbulance was so awful I was close to tears! LOL. Have a wonderful time. Can't wait to see your gorgeous photos! xo

  15. I can't wait to see your photos from Iceland! I went for a couple of weeks by myself in October (much cheaper airfare) and it was well worth it - as in THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY I'VE EVER BEEN TO. I didn't feel like my pictures did it justice, but I bet yours will. Try to ride an Icelandic pony if you can and go to hot springs in a small town.

  17. I hope you have a fantastic time in Iceland! I have a similar love-hate relationship with travelling, but as you said, perhaps I just need more practice with it. :)
