New York City and Cara Delevingne

26th October 2013


‘I want to wake up, in a city that doesn’t sleep’  Frank Sinatra

Although this was my third trip to New York I found it as overwhelming as the first. New York city makes me feel like a child again, and I lost count of the times I gasped ‘wow!’ There was so much to look at, take in and soak up, that I kept forgetting to use my camera. Most unlike me. I had a few items on my checklist; attend Blythecon (the annual Blythe doll convention) and the Central Park Blythe meet, visit Brooklyn, drink Cosmopolitans, explore Greenwich Village, Soho and the Chelsea Market, wander around the beautiful department stores and go back to the adorable Magnolia Bakery. I did it all, and I even crammed in a walk along the High Line, which I can thoroughly recommend.

The week coincided with New York Comic Con, and while sat in the window of Five Guys on 34th (there was a lot of burger eating) I must have counted over 50 people dressed as superheroes. I also managed to stumble upon the DKNY photo shoot with Cara Delevingne and ASAP Rocky – something I didn’t forget to take my camera out for. After all, it’s not every day you get to snap a supermodel.

More NYC to follow.

    I have really enjoyed following your American adventure via Instagram and was looking forward to seeing the final edit of these photos, you got some fantastic shots! The first time I went to New York I was so overwhelmed by how "wow!" everything is – there really is nowhere quite like it – and you've captured that feeling in your photos. Makes me want to go back!

    It was a fab trip, wasn't it? Left me all in a whirl too (and with very sore feet from all that walking!) – far too much to be able to take in and absorb….I love your pics – can't wait to get stuck into some editing myself!

    I love that she's waving at you! Fabulous photos, looks (and sounds) like you had an amazing time! I would love to go to New York for Comic Con, just to see everyone dressed up, sounds like great fun!
