The New York Photo Festival hasn't been around that long - but my father and I usually attend. It always falls right around our birthdays (our birthdays are a day apart) but this year, my father wasn't able to make it. He has had a love for photography for as long as I can remember (he had a Diane Arbus book when I was a kid) which likely informed my initial appreciation for the medium. In recent years he's taken to getting behind the camera himself. You can see some of his work here. It was not the same without him there! He asked me to take photos for him to share so here are a few. Click the image to enlarge. More photos can be viewed here.

This is the bedroom of three little boys. The designer, their mother, had to let go of her own design sensibilities in order to do what they really wanted: the color orange, nothing girly and airplanes. Even though she doesn't like it, I think it's a great room. I also love the airplane painting that she did herself with a paint pen.

The first time I saw these beautiful little wooden sports cars from France I was at Flora and Henri on the Upper East Side (where I also bought my little man the most incredibly soft blue and grey striped shirt). Flora and Henri, by the way, is a charming children's clothing boutique originally from Seattle (my hometown!). These cars are so fantastically made and so nice to play with. I'm a little in love with them.
