Everybody knows... that no trip to New York City is complete without having a Sip & See! I've been in countdown mode since yesterday! Counting down the days, hours and minutes left before I board that plane for New York to do my Mercedes Benz Fashion Week work. Oh and fun a

I was walking out of Foto Care after picking up a camera rental when I spotted her.  I think it was the glasses that arrested me. She was reluctant to take the photo but I always have a way with words to get random strangers give in to my lens. Check here to view more of my
