Alicia Keys just pulled a John Lennon and asked the entire room to hold hands at the @Mashable Social Good Summit and sing along with her. She’s amazing and a true testament to how people with influence can spark a movement and make a positive social impact! You go girl! #wearehere #iamhere #socialgoodsummit #2030Now #sgs #mashable #peace #makeadifference #aliciakeys #johnlennon #givepeaceachance #nycโœŒ๏ธcc: @adcouncil (at 92nd Street Y)

The @Instagram Weekend Hashtag project is to capture beautiful black and white landscapes.  The goal is to include visual elements that make the composition dynamic and include leading lines that draw your eye deeper into the photo.  When shooting B+W photos, creating a strong contrast with light and dark spaces make for a great result.  I felt this scene included all of these elements which is why I was inspired to capture it.  This is a photo of a NYC parking lot on 20th Street between Broadway and 5th Ave.  The graffiti art combined with the sunlight and parking lines made for a very interesting and beautiful landscape.  I applied the #Willow filter to transform it to black + white. #WHPbwlandscapes #nyc #nycgraffiti #graffitiart #parkinginNYC #blackandwhite #contrast #parkinglot #windows #flatiron โ—ผ๏ธโ—ป๏ธ (at Flatiron, Manhattan, NY)

New York never ceases to amaze me.  I’m out for a run tonight and stumble upon thousands of people dressed in all white having a dinner + dance party on the lawn in Battery Park.  Apparently it’s called Diner en Blanc and it’s an international event that happens all over the world and they don’t announce the location until a couple hours before!  Everyone brings their own tables, chairs, wine, etc.  How am I just discovering this?! #iloveNYC #dinerenblanc #startedinfrance #batterypark #nyc #allwhiteparty #dinneranddancing #instagramable #tinyhorizon โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ทโค๏ธ (at Dîner En Blanc - Battery Park 2014)
