I love how a new tradition can just accidentally begin, life and photography are full of beautiful surprises.  Last year for my birthday I planned a trip to New York which just happened to fall on Easter and this year I did the same. So I’ve  decided that Easter in New York with my friends, the Beals, is my Spring tradition. The Beals also know how to make a mean Easter basket.

The photographer Cindy Sherman has a retrospective at the MoMA so I knew I had to plan this trip before the end of the show in June. I’ve been fascinated with Sherman’s self portraiture since I was in college and was happy to see her work in person. She truly is intriguing and if you don’t know anything about her or her work Bazaar recently  published a great article about Sherman and the MOMA retrospective.

Another highlight of the trip was New York’s annual Easter parade. Bill Cunningham describes it as a street carnival, and it truly is that!  Men, women, children and even canines don elaborate easter hats and costumes. It’s a spectacle of the chic and of the freak!  It’s fascinating to see so many people there to be seen and so many like myself clamoring to see the beauty. It makes me wonder what Cindy Sherman would wear?

In Atlanta our Spring is passing us by far too quickly so I hope you’ll enjoy these Spring images from New York.

Spring on the High Line

The Easter Parade

This is one of my favorite images. A little boy has found and seems mesmerized by a fur stole.

I love the next two images. I remember seeing this beautiful pink hat drenched in sunlight with quite the surprise on the other side…
