That is, wild animals in the Central Park Zoo (which, by the way, is small, but very beautiful) and high fashion on Madison Avenue (where, indeed, I did nothing but window shopping).IMG_4863IMG_4867IMG_4868IMG_4873IMG_4894IMG_4903IMG_4920IMG_4923IMG_4942IMG_4908IMG_4922IMG_4938

I’m so excited, I’m going to friggin’ New York! So please bear with me if in the next couple of weeks, the posts won’t come in as regularly as usual. I’ll try to blog as often as possible, though. I even bought a new camera, so hopefully, I’m going to show you lots of great impressions from the Big Apple!kelly-michael-illustration-of-chrysler-building-manhattan-new-york-usa

You make assumptions about someone the minute you see this person – about their status, their personality, heck, probably even about their sex life. Everybody does that, it’s normal; I guess you could call it human nature. But isn’t it interesting that you probably do that even if you only see part of the person’s body? You don’t think so? Well, try looking at these women’s legs without your mind instantly starting to guess what kind of woman she is. Stacey Baker, an associate photo editor at The New York Times Magazine, is the photographer behind these pictures. Since March, she has photographed more than 300 legs in New York City. The idea for the project, called Citilegs, came when she was passing through the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Park Avenue and saw a woman with delicate legs wearing a pretty black coat.  “For some reason, I thought it would make a nice picture”, she says. Well, I find the pictures strangely captivating; they really make me want to see and know more about the women behind the legs, or rather, above them.
