Several months of blood, sweat, and tears went into this video, not to mention broken equipment, reshoots, a near disaster on the Williamsburg Bridge, and multiple 5 am call times. It’s also interesting to note that both Andrew and I have similar stories, 5 years apart. I hope you enjoy this video and that it inspires you in one way or another. Andrew and I fly to Africa in exactly 2 weeks…

All My Best,
Reuben

Late last night, I rode my bike around Manhattan with a tripod and camera taking photographs of the dark and eerie city. I felt like I rode through the Twilight Zone, and it was by far the most bizarre experience I have ever had in NYC. Life in lower Manhattan is completely different, as millions of residents are still without power and/or running water. This NY Times article describes the situation quite well.
