All my life I’ve always been naturally curious. It’s one reason I used to love going on car rides with my parents as a child. I’d be fascinated by all the scenarios taking place outside my window. And I just observe in silence. Eventually, all that observing led to many questions and I’d bombard my mom and dad with them.
The first time we ever drove to New York as a family was an eye opening experience for me. I was enthralled by all the different communities from the suburban hills, to the lakes, bridges, buildings to the corner stores. It’s what sparked my interest in culture, art and history. I wanted to know what shaped communities, languages and the origin of all the different music we’d hear driving down a street in Brooklyn. I also wanted to know why New Yorkers drove so crazy but that question wouldn’t cross my mind until years later.
Today, I’m still just as curious. Which is why I love walking around my neighborhood and discovering new details. One which happens to be this stone pillar just chilling in the middle of a parking lot. Which we couldn’t resist shooting in front of because it contrasted with my outfit pretty nicely. I also find people tend to stop and watch when we’re shooting photos. A lot of times they ask questions and we’ll just have a conversation. It’s just nice. Nice to learn about the people who make up our community while I’m doing something I love. Because as I got older I learned that it’s the people who shape the communities.
