The city so nice, they named it twice
“Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today.
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York.
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York.”
- Frank Sinatra – New York, New York
Holiday season is creeping on us faster than you can say ‘wanderlust’! With summer also setting in, in all its glory with the scorching heat of Mumbai, vacations are the need of the season what with the very word summer itself becoming synonymous to holidays.
Well, a girl can only dream! So I (Urmi) threw it way back a couple of months earlier and revisited my amazing time at New York!
The Big Apple, NYC, The city with everything, Concrete Jungle (Hello, Alicia Keyes!) or even Hong Kong on the Hudson. Call it what you might, one thing is constant – there is magic in this city. The name itself instills a certain mystery or rather an inspiration of gargantuan proportions that convinces you against all your notions and internal uncertainties that A N Y T H I N G is possible! Every street has a story to tell, every avenue has a memory waiting to be made and against everything in the face of despondency, you know that everything will be all right. If you’re in New York, you know you can never be alone, even if you quite literally are, not even your thoughts!
This city never ceases to amaze, so it was only fair that I did a shoot here! Spending the entire day in the city was an adventure unlike anything else. Discovering the nooks and crannies, trying to unearth the wondrous secrets that this spectacular city holds, isn’t something that can be done in a day. So, we settled for a shoot, bringing out an outfit with classic accents – in colors, silhouettes, or even the background! From the classic yellow New York cab to the bridges, every cell in your body breathes New York while you’re here, with an energy that makes you feel invincible. And sometimes, we all need a little bit of that.
