The color black is often seen as somber and a color that we wear to mourn but it actually evokes the opposite feeling for me. As a child, my favorite color was red. Not just any red, but the brightest red possible. The color red brought me immense joy when I wore it. You couldn’t tell the 8-year old me nothing if I had on a red dress that I could twirl in. Twirl! Today, the color black does the same thing for me. Living in NYC makes loving the color Black even easier because I really feel like an all black outfit it is the city’s unofficial uniform. It is only natural that I fall in love with the color that my city reps.
We were in Battery Park City recently and the newly revitalized neighborhood is one of my favorite places to spend summer days in the city. We took the opportunity to use the amazing light to capture the beauty of the shades of black.
