Oh look. Shivani came to visit. Aren’t we so nice to each other? I know, I know. We’re terrible. What are friends for….
Almost every week someone offers to take my photos, and I thank them but decline. I realized that this time around, the nice older couple that offered possibly had the look of serious photographers… in which case I really should have accepted. Oh well, maybe I’ll see them around sometime. It seemed like they were DUMBO natives out for an evening stroll.
I’ve also been practicing my “natural” poses, something I really think I could do better at. I look surprised more than anything. It could definitely be worse, but it’s easier to pose when you have an actual photographer as opposed to a lonely tripod and a park full of curious onlookers. …
Welcome to Letters from the City, a lifestyle photoblog.
My name is Alex and I have been blogging in some form or another since 1998. I’m a former Manhattanite now living the quieter life in Brooklyn. I like outerwear and red lipstick.
When I was younger, I was let loose in a GAP Kids one too many times, resulting in many of the fashion choices you see here in my photos. I also read, traveled, and took cooking and art classes. Art eventually led me around to photography, and to this day I do enjoy a good brunch.
Thank you for visiting! I hope you'll stay a while and get to know me. Learn More →
