We go downtown…

November 9, 2012
Petula Clark- Downtown
Finally some photos I took last week in NYC. Mr D and I spent a day mostly walking around the downtown area, visited Wall Street and surrounding areas. This was before the hurricane, as the area had several problems after Sandy swept through it.
NYC is one of my favourite cities to visit, it is so different from every other city I have already visited in Europe… in some ways I feel very foreign there but every time I visit it feels more and more familiar. I think it might be the scale of things, the sky scrapers are very monumental and overwhelming and it’s a type of landscape I am not familiar with.

What I wore on that day:
Coat – Coercion via TK Maxx
Dress – H&M via Ebay
Rucksack – Izuk via Tk Maxx
Tights – Ebay
Bow – H&M
Shoes – Doc Martens via Ebay

The Stock Exchange. Where all the Evil happens, haha.

I love visiting NYC in the Fall as the colours are absolutely vibrant and lovely. I have more photos to show you, will be publishing them over the next few days.

Have you ever been to NYC?

    Oh Sara. These photos are sooooo beautiful. I love the way you see things. I lived in New York for 10 years and I discovered that EVERYBODY feels very foreign there. Even the people who a born and raised there. But then you can find a little pocket In the city where you feel completely at home. <3

    What wonderful photos, Sara. The colours of the leaves are spectacular, you have a great eye for the details around you, and I know what you mean, the scale of the buildings in New York took my breath away too and made it feel unlike anywhere else. Yet so many of the sights are very familiar (from films) so it's oddly disconcerting to be somewhere so different yet with so many recognisable buildings… I did love it there!
    And I love your gorgeous coat and the bright tights too! xxxx
