New York ceases to surprise me! Born and raised in this amazing city, no matter which borough it is that I am visiting there is always something new and exciting to see.
Late one Friday night, my best friend Amanda (instagram: @apalaces_) and I were exploring the Dumbo scene in Brooklyn and found many interesting little restaurants, art exhibits, and murals.
Examining the panorama, I found notes of classic old New York; the cobblestone paved streets, brownstone apartments, old factories, and the view of the Manhattan Bridge from the waterfront made for a quintessential NYC night adventure.
Exploring the streets of Dumbo, Amanda and I couldn't help ourselves when we saw this one mural painted on York Street - located under an over pass, two complimenting "Yes!" designs are painted parallel to each other. (both were painted in 2013 by Yuko Shimizu)
I thought the mural would be a perfect backdrop for some pictures, and so the impromptu shoot began.

I ask myself quite frequently why I choose to pose with my arms straight out.. and Da Vinci's, Vitruvian Man, seems to be my inspiration.
I love New York because everything is open till late at night, and the city is constantly moving. Fashion and art flourish in the city and I love that I get to witness all of these things on a daily basis.
keep it classy.
