A nice alternative when you and your love want to leave your mark and there’s no tree nearby.

After the friends.  After the fun.  After the food.  After the rum.  After the music.  Race ‘gainst the Sun.  It’s after hours.  Train please come.

When my brother and I were kids, my father would always take us into Manhattan for long walks. Although New York City can be a ridiculous expensive city to reside in, it also offers an endless amount of sights and activities that one can partake of for little to nothing. One of my brother and I’s favorite spots to visit was Central Park. There, we would climb rocks, fish, ice skate in the winter, play catch and frisbee, skateboard and … roller skate. Back in the 70’s and 80’s, NYC’s roller skating scene was legendary. Some of the best roller skaters you could ever want to see could be found in Central Park on the weekends. They were a spectacle; showing off all their fancy moves. Solo skating, dancing as couples and of course…the cones! A couple of years back during a particularly warm day in early spring, I took a walk through the park and came across this gentleman going through the cones. Although he himself was still honing his skills, just the sight of him brought me back to a very happy time of my youth. I’ll never forget the roller skaters.

FASHION FEATURE:

New Zealand designer Karen Walker works with lensman Derek Henderson to shoot her Spring 2013 collection. Walker didn’t just employ the talents of artisans in Kenya, she had them model the looks, too. Partnering with the United Nations–endorsed Ethical Fashion Initiative, whose motto “Not Charity, Just Work” seeks to promote sustainable development over aid, Walker tasked the African nation’s finest micro-producers, designers, and craftspeople to produce the screen-printed pouches that will accompany every Karen Walker eyewear purchase from the collection.

I actually like this initiative because it highlights the machinists, cutters, tailors, production managers, and metal workers involved in the collection, as well as the Maasai crafters behind some of the more intricate beadwork seen on the pouch case.

Couldn’t afford tickets to the big game, but I was able to get to take in a bit of Super Bowl Boulevard. To say it was packed would be an understatement. NY did a great job as a host city.

Oddette

I met Oddette last weekend during a stroll through Prospect Park after our first real snowstorm of the season. She and her friend were taking pictures as was I and there was a shot that he was looking to capture which was giving him a bit of trouble. Also seeing his vision, I offered to take the shot and email her the results. This was the final outcome. Quite beautiful and fun if I do say so myself.

Thanks Oddette and friend!
