New York State Of Mind -Gabriela Herrera

The theme for my gallery is the city of New York and all of its happenings. The reason I chose this was because I was born and raised in New York and I consider it a very special place to live, come from, or even be in. The cities atmosphere is contagious and is a very real environment to experience everyday adventures.
