Over Greenland

I have been meaning to go through my images that I have been collection over the last couple of years to sort good from bad. I love shooting, but am a procrastinator when it comes to editing. Consequently many great images sleep the days away on my external hard drives. 
I found this images today. It was shot from the plane going from Europe to the United States. In order to avoid the ashes of the erupting volcano from Iceland, we had to fly at a higher altitude than normal and the course went north of Iceland, flying over Greenland. I was amazed by the depth of the blue of the sky so far north, it looked endless.

Portrait of a family member

I have been spending the winter so far in Buenos Aires, and parted from here to spend two weeks with my grandparents in Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil, in a small town in the mountains founded by German immigrants in the 18th century. Two of my grandparent's seven children live in that town as well. The portrait above is of my father's younger sister Isolde.

Marriage music video of me and Stuart

A couple of days after I got back to the US this trip me and Stuart were part of a music video for Adam Joseph's new song 'Finally'. In it I am getting married to Stuart, with Erickatoure Aviance as our flower girl. I like the simplicity of it, and that we are not pictured as a stereotypical gay couple, but rather as two people, who happen to be men, who love each other.

Check it out.

On a Recent Sunday

This picture was taken last Sunday, walking around Williamsburg early in the morning. My jet lag made me get up at 6am, so me and my boyfriend took a stroll around the not awake neighborhood, very quiet, very peaceful, very calm.
Trying to have more of that serenity in me.

Back in New York

It's the forth of November. I just got back to New York after spending six weeks in Europe, traveling to Greece, Spain, Germany and Belgium collecting images, visiting friends and family, and trying to let go of the past.

I have decided to start a blog as a quasi continuation of my flickr account www.flickr.com/photos/larsnyc . It seems that my flickr times have come to an end. It doesn't feel right anymore. I want to show more everyday pictures, of where I am and write what they mean to me. I know that writing is not my primary medium to express myself, but sometimes some words help to describe the picture and tell the relationship I have to them.

The first picture of this blog is a posed 'snapshot' of me after having the cab drop me off on Bedford Avenue today. I wanted to walk some after being on a plane all day from Frankfurt, Germany. I had a coffee and watched the people walk by on the corner of North 6th, thinking how long it seemed that I had been here, although it had in fact been only six weeks.

I put my camera on my bag and took this 'Momentaufnahme', which is a German word describing a passing moment in time, me arriving back in the city.
