Passionate New York, NY - Serendipity is Everywhere When We're Open to It

A few weeks ago I was in route to a shoot and found myself thinking, "it would be nice to visit New York City during the Holidays." Sharing the Christmas and (early this year) Hanukkah seasons in the city is always magic. Just as I realized this was something I needed to do, I turned on the car radio to hear John Lennon singing his Happy Christmas..."so this is Christmas and what have you done, another year over, and a new one just begun..."
Then, as I happened to glance down at my phone, I noticed an email from my friend, Dianne Stewart, "Stephen, let's go to New York."
When the message is this clear, it should not be ignored.

Designer and new friend Stef-Albert Bothma with Dianne and me.


Impromptu kisses always invoke smiles from everyone - including the security guard behind the camera.

"The car is part of an exhibition, called the “Global Africa Project,” which opened at the museum in Manhattan last week. The exhibition explores the effects of African art and design on the rest of the globe — and vice versa — and includes several automotive-themed pieces among the works. More than 100 artists are represented, working not just in Africa but also in Europe, Asia, the United States and the Caribbean." - New York Times, Nov. 24, 2010

...and so this is Christmas...
Happy 70th birthday Mr. Lennon.
