Fashion, beauty, marketing, You Tube yes these are the things that generally occupy the digital space here at ALLIE NYC, but with all the chaos and uncertainty and instability in the world I felt it was time to change it up a bit. I attended the March For Our Lives rally on Saturday and marched from 86th street to roughly the Penn Station area at 34th street.
I was exhausted by the time I got home but so glad I went. Of course I had to photograph the event. Use to running after models and fashionistas outside the shows during Fashion Week I applied many of the same techniques. Except now I was saying thank you to children and teens for letting me snap their photo instead of the fashion elite.
I supported something I believed in, and had the opportunity to go outside my comfort zone when it comes to shooting
I almost didn’t attend as I was not feeling all that well. But I pushed past the pain and I was so glad I did. I supported something I believed in, and had the opportunity to go outside my comfort zone when it comes to shooting. I really don’t know what to say about the state of the world. I am beyond frightened. I don’t know what I think of the future anymore, but I do feel like we are heading off a cliff big time.
I guess all we can do is pray, vote them out and hopefully these young people really can change the world
My mom had a friend who earned her living as a psychic, she was fairly successful and read for well known people including politicians—I will leave it at that. About a year before the 911 attacks she got very very freaked out. She told my mom she was no longer going to read because of what she saw, she said she was going to leave the area and was going to go under ground. And she did. She technically no longer exists and can not be found under her name. We can only assume she changed her name. My mom and her clients have no idea where she went.
But I think of her now and again and wonder what she “saw” that made her so completely change her life. I guess all we can do is pray, vote them out and hopefully these young people really can change the world
At any rate I hope you enjoy these photos, I am happy to share them with you. There will be a part two so be sure to check back.1
