This weekend while working on the next set of projects I have coming up, we decided to take a pause and headed out to NY. We went to go visit some family for a much needed break. Sometimes the rides home can be so relaxing if you let it. With the right music and a certain mood, it takes me back to a place I haven’t been in a long time.
If you follow my private Instagram, or any of my other social media accounts (See sidebar), than you know about my trip to New York Comic Con yesterday. I got to meet a group of friends I’ve played videogames with online for over five years now. To say I had a great time is a drastic understatement.
For a brief time, I forgot about all of my problems, my issues, and everything else. For that block of time, nothing else mattered. I was a teenager again for a day. Since I’m very quickly approaching 30, this was a welcome feeling.
I already miss them. I already miss New York. Though, like I always say to New York when I leave it,
“I’ll see you again, ol’ friend.”
Have you ever met your “online friend(s)” in “real life”? How was it?
Over the Easter weekend we were all over the place. On Saturday we visited some family in NY. What a glorious spring day it was! I managed to snap some photos of our trip and I have to say these are some of my favorite shots ever taken. Something about the day provided the most spectacular lighting.

I’m sure you’ll see these incorporated into my artwork somehow soon.
My family took a trip to go see one of our lovely relatives in Brooklyn, NY. These are some of the photographic results. There are some interesting stories behind each one. Some photos have larger versions and can be viewed by clicking on each one. Just read the small blurbs beneath each photo for details.

(This is a neat one. When I loaded them onto my computer, I noticed a strange reflection that I can only assume is the sun interfering with the glass. Although, some of my family swears it’s some sort of spiritual sign. I’ll let you decide for yourself.)
