everything has it's beauty, but not everyone sees it (Kandee Johnson in NYC)

While I was in NYC with, Kandee (Johnson), and after we finished up her
Glaminars, there were all these balloons left over from the class. In typical Kandee form, she just grabbed all of them and started walking the streets of New York. The only thing I could do was grab my camera and follow.

We shot photos in the middle of the street, in rush hour traffic. People were looking at us like we were crazy! As we made our way down the street to union square, we stopped at this big blue wall and I starting shooting her with my point and shoot. I started thinking this would be amazing to film, so I turned it to video mode and shot this scene. I’ve never shot any video with that camera, and looking at how fun this shot is, makes me think, “ why don’t I do things like this more often?!?” I had this technology in my hands for a year now!

The one thing I didn’t get a shot of, were the people’s reaction around us! They were freaking out! They started gathering around like we were shooting a Vogue cover. I could not stop laughing. This was a super fun moment.
