I always take great appreciation for these spontaneous days. I spend so much time scheduling and allotting specific times for coffee, lunches, coffees, drinks, dinner and everything else in between. It's hard to find some personal time for myself. I'm sure you know that saying - You appreciate what you can't have. LES is a great entree to settle that insatiable craving. As well as much of New York City that I plan to explore. Lower East Side always have a ton of color and a ton of personality. You don't even need to do anything in particular to be anywhere in particular because you're always already in it. Every corner is something interesting or delicious. These images were taken after Pho, a boutique filled with finger skulls and prosthetic eyes, an art gallery, and a punk dive bar with three tequila shots in. Better than any Yelp, Foursquare, or google search is a new friend who can guide you to the right place. Or even a friend who is willing to take a random walk with you with no precise destination in mind. It takes quite a pal to deal with three bud lights chased down with three whisky shots in between. I was pretty grateful for the Pho I had that afternoon because it snuggled the liquor in my tummy. Pho Grand has an atmosphere you didn't know you ever need. It simply doesn't judge you. As my dear friend, Apneet crawled to the table. Everything felt just right. And as we sipped the Pho to grasp its bottom, we discussed music, art, and alcohol (per usual). As I type this, I'm starting to understand my alcoholism. Anyway, we replaced dessert for rabbit milky candy at a convenience store nearby. A unique jewelry store and art gallery later, we found ourselves at Clockwork. I can tell you one thing - the greatest and underrated find ever. Thus this shoot was produced in all it's inebriated glory.

Well worth an early evening (which also meant an early night).
