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!
