I was inspired by The Sartorialist for this one! She was so pretty and so enwrapped in her telly, the sun was so bright, and everything was right in The Village – except that I was a little bit lost. No matter.

Story: I met Luke at the Sunday afternoon farmer’s market. While I took pictures, he sang me a song. He loves what he does.

Hello World! “A New Amsterdam” is from a beautiful song by Travis, a song that kept singing itself to me recently when I was in New York and discovering Amsterdam Street. I spent a Sunday afternoon wandering through a farmer’s market people-watching and thinking “a new day, a new dawn, a new Amsterdam” and it stuck – I can’t people-watch (my favorite thing to do) without thinking of this song. So naturally it is the perfect name for this blog.
