Air Conditioner, why is it on right now

It's 2:00 am the perfect time to take a quick break from re-writing the current Work In Progress (WIP), so I meandered into my kitchen, plugged in the trusty toaster that The Expat Drama Teacher gave me last summer, and plopped in some cinnamon raisin bread.

There I stood, waiting for my toast to toast, while eating ice cream from the container with a fork when I was jostled away from the decadent feel of chocolaty creamy goodness melting in my mouth by the rattling hum of my neighbor's air conditioner.

Which motivated this post.

Why is your air conditioner running? It's 64 degrees outside.

And to the neighbors across the street, why was your air conditioner running earlier today? We had a high of only 72.

And to the majority of the neighbors along my street, why have you been running your air conditioners all night for the past couple of weeks? When except for the rain and humidity last weekend, it's been quite pleasant outside at night.

The current temperature right now is 64. But the low is going to be 59.

Please tell me that you keep your apartment at 55 degrees, otherwise you're most likely sweltering in your stifling apartment when you could be basking in the blessed coolness of Mother Nature, sans the electric bill.
I was just wondering, that's all.

Kind regards,

Wedding: Agueda & Jong

In June, I joined Gulnara of Gulnara Studio's to photograph Agueda & Jong's wedding. We met up with them at their hotel near the United Nations. I stayed with the groom, so you'll see quite a few pictures of him in this set.

We strolled down the street to the UN, then took a cab across town to Pier Sixty where we boarded the Majestic Star. There was a sunset ceremony, followed by a quick outfit change, and a Korean wedding ceremony.

This couple was so much fun and the day was fabulous.

I love the way her flamenco style dress moves as she walks.

Lifestyle Portrait: Lexi & Ella

As I edited these images, I remembered why I got into photography in the first place. Capturing images that forge a connection between the subject and viewer makes me happy. These images make me happy. They bring a smile to my face, and make me sigh in contentedness.

The children in this portrait session are Lexi & Ella, it was a delight working with them. Location: Upper-Upper-West Side.

Let me know if you enjoyed these images as much as I did.

Edit: I just realized that I forgot three of my favorite images! So I'm sticking them up on the top. Not quite sure how I missed putting them up. But enjoy!

___Back to the original post. :)

Come on, let's go play!

I can't figure out which one I like better, this one, or the next one. Which one do you love more?
