2021: The Other Cloisters’ Art

A mural of a camel hung up on the dimly lit stone wall. I noticed the shadows and the way that light bounced off the walls or seeped through the windows. And there was an electrical outlet near the bottom of the floor. Impressive! About a few weeks ago, I visited the famous Cloisters in… Continue reading 2021: The Other Cloisters’ Art

2021: To Mask or Not to Mask in Manhattan

A couple of weeks ago, before Manhattan officially allowed  “vaccinated” folks to walk the streets maskless, I was in this very city all masked up. So, these were my thoughts while walking through the streets. Also, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph strangers with their permission and with their masks on. 🙂 While the majority… Continue reading 2021: To Mask or Not to Mask in Manhattan

2021: A Stroll through Central Park

The Famous Bethesda Fountain “I guess you say… What can make me feel this way… my girl! Talkin ‘bout my girl…” a man was singing a capella to that famous tune by the Temptations.  So, the other Sunday, my mom,  my dog Mahal, and I were inside Central Park.

2021: No Dogs Left Behind

A screenshot of the Siberian Husky named River, whom I rescued last month. About a month ago, I discovered this non-profit organization called No Dogs Left Behind. Their mission is to rescue dogs from slaughterhouses in China, rehabilitate them, and ultimately have them all adopted into loving and secure homes.

2020: 33 Years of Travel

A view of Manhattan Wow, 33 years of travel! A couple of days ago, my parents and I celebrated (we've been quarantined together since March) my birthday in the city. And we visited my favorite park: Fort Tryon Park, which also houses the Cloisters. It's a medieval-like structure with medieval art inside, such as the… Continue reading 2020: 33 Years of Travel

Back to the States

A sunset view from my flight window. You literally could have your own row to yourself. There were so many rows to choose from. Also, I ended up watching three movies during this time: Joker, Jumanji: 2, and Frozen 2. (I don’t recommend watching sequels, haha! ;P) All photos were shot on iPhone 7 Plus… Continue reading Back to the States
