Black and White

2 of 5 of the #blackandwhitechallenge 
 It’s not very often that you get a chance to film and photograph NYC Ballet dancers on a NYC rooftop overlooking Central Park, with direct views of the top of the Empire State building. This was one of those days, and it was absolutely magical, breathtaking, and surreal. That’s why I love NYC so much; it’s full of magic, wonderful surprises, and extraordinary, talented people. There is beauty all around us. 
 I nominate @jen_trahan for the black and white challenge, which is quite fitting because this photo was taken by Jen Trahan for @reubenhernandez studios (at New York City Ballet)

A letter to my friend and former bandmate, Andrew McMahon (@amnthewilderness): 
 Dear Drew, 
 I’m so incredibly proud of you for everything that you’ve accomplished, from playing sold out shows across the country (and world), to being nominated for an Emmy, to bringing a beautiful daughter into this world; I could go on and on… 
 Watching you play a sold out show in New York City with hundreds of people singing along to your songs (and some of the songs that you and I used to perform together) at the top of their lungs was absolutely mesmerizing and moving. I truly felt your heart and soul, and the powerful energy of everyone in that room. I’m honored and lucky to have had the opportunity to share the stage with you.  
 Thank you for such a beautiful and memorable night. Keep moving all of us with your music. 
   Your Friend,  Reuben

Foster the People giving us a reason to dance on the eve of their new record release, Supermodel, at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. I don’t know Mark Foster personally, but he hooked us up with free tickets and VIP passes so he seems like quite a swell guy. Check out their new album that drops today!
