Slow living to me is all about enjoying the moment and forgetting about everything else in that very moment. It’s being present and learning to be grateful every single day.
I like setting Google alerts for tracking airfares to particular destinations; they email you when the prices drop!
Flower I Love
Cherry blossoms are my favorite photography subject; they bring back memories of my childhood and NY in the spring. I highly recommend New York in the spring. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden is the best place to photograph some of the loveliest cherry trees!
Lighting is everything! You will capture a beautiful photo if you understand lighting, balance and composition of the subject in the frame. I love editing my photos with Lightroom and A Color Story.
Favorite Cafés in NYC
Maman in New York has the best atmosphere, pastries and dishes. Dante in NYC is a great spot from morning to night. Always ask the locals for the best restaurant recommendations; online reviews can be tricky at times. It’s my rule of thumb when visiting new cities.
Authors I Love
Milan Kundera, Gabriel García Márquez and Julio Cortázar.
