Moments from Street Corners (NYC Edition)

“O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart.
Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.”
– Saint Augustine

“I see drawings and pictures in the poorest of huts and the dirtiest of corners.”
– Vincent Van Gogh

“Our street corners keep secrets, and our road signs only suggest,
never deciding for us, never knowing if the destination to which they lead is where we truly belong.”
― Alex Gaskarth

Coming up for air after our BOUNDED IN A NUTSHELL workshop closed this last Sunday (kick-ass cast, by the way, hope you didn’t miss it), I’ve been glancing through a handful of photos that I took over the last few weeks and I suddenly noticed how many NYC shots I found myself taking from street corners.

Of course.

New York City is a GARGANTUAN network of corners and intersections.

So many people going so many ways.

So. Many. Choices.

And, far too often, we forget the splendor we walk through every single day.

But street corners give us a moment to stop and make a decision.

So…a moment of gratitude for the city they named twice and all the choices this crazy metropolis provides.

And a little photographic ode to the beauty of standing at a crossroad.

And a good reminder to self to enjoy Autumn in NYC…
