"It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And [this trash] was, like, [sitting there]. Like [no one had anywhere else to put it]. [All day]. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. [Phone photo ops are] a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."
There is a blog, however, the catches the beauty of the city in photos. It is called Boroughed: Metropolitan NYC Photo-Blog (Five Boroughs & Beyond).
