Humans of New York: A Tiny Traveler
For one of the final posts in the Blogtember Challenge we are asked to pretend that we were asked for advice from a photographer working for Humans of New York. Last weekend Mark and I went with some friends to Brooklyn and it was so much fun. We were celebrating Tori's birthday and Mark and I's 1 year wedding anniversary. Along with answering Bailey's prompt I also wanted to share some photos from our trip!
Picture this. You've been stopped on the street by the photography of Humans of New York, and he asks, "What advice would you give to a large group of people?" Share a picture of yourself along with the advice.
It is so important to never compromise kindness and decency just because someone treated you poorly in the past. This is something that I've learned over the last year or two and I am so glad that I did. That might sound strange, but I know now what it's like from both sides and I would much rather be myself, be kind and caring, believe in others and celebrate a community that builds people up instead of complains and criticizes. This is the advice I would give a room full of people: be kind and believe in one another. Build our future in a positive light, together!
What a fun prompt! Now here are some shots from our weekend in Brooklyn.
We stayed at the BKLYN House Hotel. We ate at egg, Extra Fancy, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Blue Bottle Coffee, Matchaful, La Colombe Coffee, Dough Donuts, and Love & Dough pizza. We visited the Brooklyn Bridge, the Pier, Dumbo (and the spot where we got engaged), Williamsburg, and a photography exhibit called Photoville. Finally, we shopped around at West Elm, Catbird, powerHouse books, Warby Parker, Whisk, and the Paper Source shop. Such a fun weekend away!
