I'm not exactly a nature photographer, but we had a moment in Central Park where I just had the camera in my hand and spotted the cutest birds, squirrels and dogs getting on with their lives while I was having a rest.
I haven't spent a lot of time of the upper east side before so we walked through Central Park and out on the east side. From there we walked down towards midtown and were trying to find Hells Kitchen, but we found another restaurant really close by that was super nice and really cheap. I hope I remember the name of it so I can pass it on because it was amazing.
While walking down the street there was a street sale on books and magazines and the first thing I see is a 1993 issue of Playboy with Stephanie Seymour on it. Stephanie Seymour is one of my absolute favourite models and it was such an exciting find. Ken actually bought it for me immediately. It's in plastic and everything. I took it out of the plastic to read her interview and the magazine seems brand new in mint condition. I don't know if that means something to someone, like, do people collect Playboys like they collect comics? The interview is from the time when Stephanie was dating Axl Rose which is crazy, the pictures in that magazine is my favourite pictures of her ever taken and I had no idea Playboy actually took them.
I also stumbled across Empire Hotel which is really cool because that's the hotel Chuck owns in Gossip Girl. I may have squealed a little when I saw it. I knew it was a real hotel, but I did not expect to stumble across it in midtown. Sooo many time in Gossip Girl the camera zooms in on the Empire Hotel sign on top of the building when Chuck scenes are happening in the hotel.
