I’ve been in New York for almost two full weeks now! Here’s an update of what has been happening.
First of all, I'm really sorry that I haven't been keeping up with my Monday & Friday blog posts! I’ve been very busy exploring the city! When I’m not at home sleeping, I’m at my internship or in Manhattan walking around and being a total tourist. I’ve found so many cute shops and I’ve eaten a lot of great food (which is my favorite part)!
Since I've been here, I've tried a lot of strange and interesting foods. And for the first time ever, I tried fish! While at my internship one day, we took a "field trip" to a world famous fish market and sampled the different types of salmon. I've never liked seafood, but the salmon was actually really good!
Since I arrived here, I've been getting many messages from different photographers asking to do photo shoots. This week alone, I booked two shoots. The first one was at Coney Island. I loved seeing the amusement park and walking along the water. Who knew that New York had such nice beaches? The pictures turned out great too, thanks to Nyapal!
The second photo shoot was in Greenpoint, Brooklyn near my internship's office! The photographer was visiting the United States and he was a very cool guy! Check out his website here. I haven't gotten the pictures back yet, but here is a behind-the-scenes picture:
I'm truly in love with New York and everything that it has to offer. There is so much energy here and all of the people are so interesting. Almost everyone that I've met has traveled the world or speaks another language! I've also learned a lot at my internship. I have the best internship in the entire world and I really enjoy going to work every day. Next week the other interns and I are having our first photo shoot and I can't wait!
