NYC instagrammed

As the holiday clock is ticking down, and the rush of gift giving day nears I found myself in New York's boroughs inhaling the spirit of decorated pines and glitzy ribbons and bows. Even though traces of monster storm Sandy can still be felt in parts of the city, crowds embrace the positive essence of wonder and cheer, casually flashing brightly-wrapped shopping bags.

How cool is this eclectic deer spotted in SoHo??

Union Square X-mas shops. Aren't these ornaments adorable?

Urban Empty

Have you ever imagined what New York would look like without people? Or LA? Or any other iconic American city??
Film guru Ross Ching captured time-lapse photography into short series called "Empty America"  of sightseeing in legendary cities like New York and Washington DC, without people. Curiously, the videos were not intended to promote apocalyptic message, rather they're meant to show residents and tourists something they rarely experience: a city at peace with itself, the most beautiful aspects without distraction of noise, pollution and human activity.
