Yesterday Tash and I went to the Met to check out a few of exhibitions. First was the Egyptian Collection (we walked around and through the Temple of Dendur) and then two spectacular Photo Exhibitions. Lastly, we went and saw Jeff Koons On The Roof.
The two photo exhibitions we saw Framing a Century: Master Photographers, 1840–1940 and Photography on Photography: Reflections on the Medium since 1960 Of these two exhibits, I preferred the Masters Exhibit more. Among the many great masters featured, I was particularly blown away by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Man Ray & Walker Evans. I left the exhibit feeling inspired and enlightened by the framing of Brassai's work and the critical moments captured by Bresson.
I can't wait to check out the rest of the museum as well as the other museums in my new city!

Well, the last three days have been busy. We've looked at about 15 apartments in the Bronx and the northernmost tip of Manhattan (Inwood). Tomorrow we'll sign the lease and get the key to our new two bedroom apartment in Inwood. What a cool spot to live. Very convenient for my commute to work in Yonkers and for my wife's commute to school at NYU.
I'm so excited about this new step in our lives. A new job for me, a new city to live in, numerous opportunities for growth in numerous areas of interest. Mass exposure to multitudes of diversity. I can only expect my wife and I to be churning out all sorts of new art work. Stay tuned folks, this blog and my site are going to explode with content!

Tash and I got back from Mexico yesterday evening. Man that was so great! We spent a week in Quintana Roo at Playa Del Carmen at an excellent resort on the beach. We enjoyed tons of sun, plenty of fu-fu cocktails & fantastic food, snorkling, exploring Mayan ruins, photographing, kayaking, and otherwise relaxing. We took a few photos and there will be a gallery uploaded soon.
Now, it's back to reality.
