These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

This was my second time seeing them, from very nearly the same seats in the same venue (we were one table up, but that put me too far stage right to get good shots.)

Last night was their 50th Anniversary- Ben Jaffe's mom was in the audience.

We were on the front row - but they don't allow photography in our theatres

It's rare that a venue won't allow pictures. Some don't. Lincoln Center doesn't, for example. But this was a smallish venue called City Winery (you can see what it's likehere).

Small clubs almost always have no problem with photos, thank goodness. It looks like I'll be shooting a band called Platform One on Sunday night (sort of a steampunk/dark electro thing) and then another jazz show on Friday next.

Nikon's getting a workout. :)
