Reuniting (in the park again)

It’s been an exciting and hectic week, punctuated by Catie’s arrival to NYC as well as major interviews at both Parsons and SVA. The tennis season at Trevor is in full swing (ha ha), and whenever I’m not coaching on court or doing conditioning runs around the Reservoir with my players, Cat and I have been trying to “do” as much New York as possible to get back into the rhythm of the city.

We’ve also been trying to reconnect with all of the friends we still have here, and we were able to hit a couple more of those proverbial birds with one stone yesterday by meeting both Tristan (whom Catie had not seen in quite a while) and Mitch (whom neither of us had seen in quite a while) in Manhattan and spending the afternoon wandering around Central Park. (Two Minnesotans + two Alaskans = a day in the park, invariably.)

My obsession with black and white photography carries on. I tried to switch my camera’s picture control settings to vivid color again, but I hated the look of my first captured image on the LCD screen, and quickly switched back. I’m addicted to the visual acuity and drama of high-contrast black and white, and color just seems to take away from that punch.

    I’m addicted to photographing, since it makes me feel so energizing and exciting. Black and white photography gives certain scenes a striking and even timeless quality when done well. However, it is unique.
