Messenger Mickens: A Photo Diary

Standard

A while ago, I completed my NYU messenger run, and what a gorgeous week it turned out to be. Sure there were some overcast days, but the days were warm (it’s all relative) and the sun made an appearance ever so often. I decided to do a “Day In the Life Of…” photo diary while on the job (shhh) so you could get a sense of what I experienced each day 🙂

Wandering Wednesday

Standard

It’s pretty short and sweet this week for Wandering Wednesday. Hard to believe that tomorrow marks my last day on the messenger route for awhile, but at least I’ll get to wander to some old and new places again. Most of these were actually taken on Friday after work, when the weather was pretty pleasant and I decided to walk from 42nd street over to Magnolia Baker on 68th and Columbus.

This week’s Wandering Wednesday covers the messenger route and work commute: City Hall, Washington Square Park, the Flatiron District and Convent Avenue in Harlem. Now that the March thaw has begun (fingers crossed), and my gloves are about to get the heave-ho I’ll be able to start wandering out of my comfort zone in the weeks ahead. Until then, hope you enjoy these shots!

While I realize it is actually Friday, my Wandering Wednesday post is going live TODAY! Yes, I’ve been busy blah, blah, blah (you can recap that here and here),but this week I started back on my messenger route which means, I’m getting paid to wander the streets of New York and take awesome photos in between stops. This week’s Wandering Wednesday features the pictures I was able to take throughout the month, when my fingers weren’t freezing.

Midtown, the Financial District, City Hall, and West Harlem are featured. Hope you enjoy!
