Cristal likes to calls my cameras my other girlfriends since they are always there and often part of, or ruining "the moment." so I try to not over do the shooting and still get a little something on our travels.
When we first met we had seen images of the sculpture and thought it would be cool to check it out someday. At the time we were both thinking of the sculpture in Philly's Love Park.
Interestingly we had both previously been to NY many times and neither of us had ever ran into this pretty huge sculpture in Midtown. Guess it wasn't the right time because we were not together and we wouldn't of had this wonderful moment and memory. ON this trip to NY, Cristal surprised me with a walk down to the sculpture, it was really sweet.
I find timing so interesting. I strongly believe that everything happens when it is supposed to.
That moment we meet the person, we eventually call our "love" is everything. When Cristal and I first noticed each other, our eyes locked and the world seemed to stand still for a moment. That night we stared at each other from across the room. We did so for several nights as we kept running into each other... until finally she wasn't "too cool" and introduced herself. She had me at hello.
As we got to know each other we realized we had known the same people, had many mutual friends, been going to the same places to listen to the same music for years but had never met. It wasn't out time. This is our time, and we couldn't love each other any deeper if we tried.
