I took this photo this past Saturday, on March 15, 2014 at Union Square while the cars were at a stoplight. The uniqueness of the car is what obviously made me pull out my Iphone and take a snapshot of it. Not only does the art on the car grab your attention,but its also the model of the car itself. Everything is changing as we develop more and more into the future, (even the taxi cab is looking more advanced than ever), which is why I can appreciate someone who drives this old school model car in the streets and add a little bit of “flavor” to it for whatever reason. I also find it amazing that the man in the car is looking at the road ahead, so casually doing his daily commute as if he’s unaware that he’s riding one of the most creative, and distinctive cars in the world. I love the message of this car because I “heart” NY as well, especially when I see moments like these.

I also took this photo this past Saturday, on March 15, 2014 at Union Square Park a couple hours after the car picture was taken. As I was walking around i couldn’t help but notice and feel the presence of this lady standing face to face with the sunlight. Theres so much emotion as she has her eyes closed holding that leafless tree branch as if it were her child. It’s really amazing how everyone around is so oblivious as they do their own thing; but this lady looks like she’s in her own world taking in all the life thats given to her in that very moment. As you see the Metronome in the upper right hand corner, you can’t help but to think of your life as its ending one second at a time, but if we were to not think about the past or the future and be more aware and focused in the present moment we could be more like this lady in having a peaceful state of mind.
