Daily Photo: L'Archive


Almost a year ago, I had an idea where I would do a shoot for more branding/marketing for my blog. You know more images to share, Tshirt, & stickers. The shoot came out amazing, which I was extremely excited about. My good friend Andrew helped me with the shoot. Such an amazing photographer and inspiration to me. We woke up at the crack of dawn and drove an hour away to the middle of nowhere. We ended up stopping on this road which probably had one car that passed every 13-20 mins or so. Which turn out to be a good thing we had the street to play around in like we were kids in a sandbox. Lol. 


Recently I got a new phone and decide to clean out all my old images. I came cross this one and completely forgot about it. I'm so glad I keep a junk folder of images that I always go back to every now and then. 

I cannot wait for more adventures. 


Just last week I met up with my good friend Vic who is a photographer from New Jersey. We decide to do some catching up by taking some photos & grabbing a bite to eat after our adventure. Vic took these photos of me, and lets be clear every time Vic takes photos. I'm always impressed by his composition, tones, & lightening. 

I was trying to make it to sunrise at Coney Island to meet up with Vic & some other peeps, but I got stuck in crazy morning traffic heading to Brooklyn. I can't explain how crazy morning traffic is for New York City. But luckily, I was able to get there just a little after the sun had came up.  

Made it in time...

Shortly after I got to Coney Island, the clouds were pretty much falling to pieces, is what I would like to call it. The sun was setting off some amazing lighting, there's no good way to explain it. Just simply beautiful. I have a few photos that I will share on my social media and my blogs. But honestly I want to save them for future print and gallery work. Because I know one day I will be able to showcase it in a better way than just on a social media app.

 Vic & Jennay being creative.

The day was successful, I got a chance to catch up with my good friend, make new friends & do what I love doing. Exploring the city I live in - capturing different things through my point view to  create memories that will last forever.

Mulberry St.

Sometimes you have to enjoy your life the best way you can. Sunday evening my fiancée & I attend the Italian festival that happens yearly in Manhattan, New York. I was very skeptical about the situation based on all the traffic conditions that I would be facing. But I said you know what, however long it takes me to get there and find a parking spot, it will surely be worth it. As i briefly said to my fiancee, were definitely not go to find parking near the street or even close by. So the first parking garage I saw I pulled in and said park it please... 

Walking to the entrance of the festival you are presented with a wonderful bakery smell. I mean you can smell it for miles away. As we entered the barricade I saw so many people there just enjoying everything insight. From the delicious pasta meal, the pastries, & all different activities to do with friends and family. I must have walked by a dozen pastries stands and wishing I could eat everything. 

OH-MY.........HOW-COOL-IS-THIS-GUY ! He was in full character waving his blades around and showing off his costume. When somebody in the crowded said "show us your moves" he stop and turn around and showed us a few moves. 

After walking through Mulberry street and fighting around people. Yelling EXCUSE ME! We finally got to the end of the festivities and said you know what lets walk back on different street. Passing through I saw this man in front store just organizing things around, probably for the next day, it was pretty late when I passed by him but this image is everything to me. It says so much based on lighting and the motion of the person.

Never forget to smile. 

Oh So Common

This photo your looking at in this post is currently the most famous photo to ever hit Instagram. It has been shot numerous times by the some pretty dope photographer that are on Instagram. Just the other day my friend Andrew & I were out shooting and we finally came across the spot where this particular photo was taken by other photographers. I was pretty excited to finally see it for my eyes. There something about seeing a photo, and then being in the same exact location where it was taken. Nothing is better than freezing the moment... But being in presence of it, seeing it for your own eyes is just amazing.

When first took the shot, I said those clouds are exactly what I want to stand out. I also thought if I am going to shoot the same thing everybody has already shot and posted it on Instagram - it better have my little twist to it. So I did do some post edit with more of a vintage film to have burnt out look. 

Hope you enjoy
