New York through Karl’s Lens

When we decided to go to BlogHer as a family, I couldn't help but think of the outfit post possibilities. Oh the backgrounds, the outfits, and my photographer with me. And then once the trip was upon us, we both agreed that we didn't want to spend precious time trying to capture “cool” outfit posts when we could be seeing the city and enjoying our time as a family. Karl kept the big camera at home, and brought his little Fuji, which he used to instead document his experiences, most while I was toiling away in conference rooms. I love his eye, and love how his little camera really captures how his brain works and how he sees things. A few shots he took from the trip that weren't in any previous posts:

Two decades ago, Karl was in the Navy and in NYC for the first time for Fleet Week and received a free carriage ride around the city. He was excited to share this memory with Emerson on her first trip to the city.
