3-16 December 2014

Captured some of New York’s emotions on my trip there last December. The city contains a whole gamut of emotions – black, white and everything in between.

In the 2 weeks I was there, I encountered a large scale protest, a girl who sat beside me telling me she could see a ghost behind me (I was honestly freaked out) and witnessed the joy of a girl seeing snow for the first time in her life.

Nothing beats having company on cold wintry days.

Or an umbrella to share with.

Even a statue can do for mock company, no?

It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs.
