I <3 NYC

Last night I cut out a little heart on a piece of paper and put it over my lens. 
It turns lights into hearts! How cute is that?

i love what that does to the city!

also, i loved your 'high-five to rob' activity and you inspired me to get passersby involved in a proposal this weekend. :)

Adorable! I've seen that before and really want to try it out. I'm sure you get this question all the time, but what kind of camera do you have? Your photography is so wonderful and original!

i love your sense of fun and joy you bring into the every day. Thank you!!!

colormekatie said...

Hey MorganJ! I shoot with a Canon 5D.

I'm not sure if you can do the heart trick with every lens. You may need to have a lens with an aperture of 1.8. If it does work for anyone on different lenses, let me know!

Sera said...

Meggy Leu said...

Did you just cut a shape out of black construction paper and put it on your lens? I just tried that and I couldn't get it to work so I was just wondering if there was a trick to it. Wonderful pictures! Love them.
