I have been selected as a contributor to an art and performance show that is coming up on June 19, 2013, held at Double Door in Chicago, IL. This will be a great evening of art, music, and performances – with all of the profits benefiting the Awakening Center, an eating disorder treatment facility. The night is about female-empowerment and the tickets are a humble $5! There is no excuse not to come and support the local artists as well as helping bring to attention the issue of eating disorders in our society. See below for the press release for more information! Hope to see you there!

New York City 2013

Written by kgornia on . Posted in Photography No Comments

My time in NYC was unforgettable. It was magical. It was great. New York City has certainly captured my heart. The business of the streets, the constant feeling of “doing”, the lights, the buildings, the restaurants, the shops. Manhattan, to be more specific, left a lasting impression on me and I definitely want to go back there very soon. I would love to be able to live there someday.

So with that, I leave you with some photos I took during my trip to NYC. The HDR photo of Times Square at night bustling with  tourists and flashing the advertisements on the buildings. The gorgeous view from Top Of The Rock Observatory center on Rockerfeller Plaza, where you can see both sides of the Manhattan. In the photo you can see the south side and the main point of the image – the Empire State Building.

I also took some photos with my phone, especially during my runs through Central Park in Manhattan. Since I don’t go running with my dSLR, I had my phone handly and snapped a few pictures. Here are the two photos I liked the most from my Instagram.
