Exactly a year ago

High Line New York City

This is a photo I took exactly a year ago on January 1st, 2013 in New York City. After a night of drinking and dancing, we decided that we would have a low key day and visit the High Line. This is a quick snap I took of my friend whilst he had his back to me.

New York City is the coldest place I have ever been (more so than the snowy parts of Europe, including Norway). It was only about 1-2 degrees but the wind chill made it feel like -20 degrees. Or perhaps it’s because we walked around all day in the miserable cold. We all wore furry hats with ear flaps to keep our heads/ears warm. A man walked past us on the high line and made a snide comment about how he wore these hats before they became cool. We thought it was funny.

  1. Love the bravery of going out into the cold, probably hungover too, to take photos and on top of it all take a great shot like this!

  2. Staying indoors wasn’t an option – we were in one of the greatest cities in the world! After a freezing day out it always felt good to return to the apartment though
