Inspiration Corner: New York City

Another busy week in NYC! This past weekend I was able to visit the American Museum of Natural History; which basically consisted of me getting lost in their magnificent collection of gems. I also was able to get to the exciting Photoville container exhibitions at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park, after which I left feeling humbled and inspired to create. Here is a visual recap of the past week...

Thought the shapes, contours and colors of this crystal were so delicate and strong at the same time

And the view of Pier 5 from Brooklyn Heights at sunset ain't too shabby either.
