And while I did enjoy the beach, marina, restaurants, malls & sun-drenched downtime, I found myself more & more drawn to the locals and their unassuming neighborhoods, just blocks from all the advertised & crowded tourist attractions.

So instead of capturing "The Arch" and the usual sunrise, sunsets, seashells & sandcastles, I felt compelled to focus my lens on the REAL Cabo San Lucas. And as you'll see, it provides quite a contrast from the Cabo presented on brochures, posters, TV docs & travel sites.

New York Comic Con 2016! https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2016/10/new-york-comic-con-2016 This was my 6th straight year attending New York Comic Con...and the most fun. I think this time I took in more of the atmosphere: tons of grown adults (and kids) dedicated to...and expressing...what they love. Whether it's a superhero(ine), a cult tv classic, anime, a video game character, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, I mean, the geek list is endless. From the most elaborate cosplay to simply wearing a Wonder Woman tee shirt, we all shed our ever-adulting selves and became kids again. Everything was awesome....everyone was happy.

(And we all get to do it again on Halloween!)

"The Walking Dead" Season 6 Premiere at Madison Square Garden https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/10/-the-walking-dead-season-6-premiere-at-madison-square-garden The wildly popular TV show "The Walking Dead" had its Season 6 premiere at Madison Square Garden and what a night it was. This premiere was strictly for the die-hard fans....17,000 strong...who packed The Garden wearing t-shirts and costumes repping the show and favorite characters. The airing of the premiere episode (on 3 giant screens) was followed by a fantastic panel discussion of 18 cast members! Yours truly, a "TWD" fan since Day 1, had the added thrill of photographing the actors on the red carpet. Kudos to the AMC network and Madison Square Garden for a terrific job all around...a night the fans will never forget.

WNBA Playoffs: New York Liberty vs. Indiana Fever Game 3 https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/9/wnba-playoffs-new-york-liberty-vs-indiana-fever-game-3 The New York Liberty's best season ever came to a crashing halt, at the hands of the Indiana Fever and their superstar, Tamika Catchings. The Liberty players, in front of their high-energy fans, played a surprisingly tentative game, while the surging Fever played one of their best games of the season. Indiana now goes on to the WNBA Finals vs the Minnesota Lynx, while the Liberty have to wait until next year.

WNBA: Rematch of New York Liberty vs. Chicago Sky https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/9/wnba-rematch-of-new-york-liberty-and-chicago-sky I'm a die-hard New York Liberty fan, but I really wanted to shoot this game to capture Elena Delle Donne, star forward for the Chicago Sky. Ever since she entered the WNBA, the 2013 Rookie of the Year has been one of the WNBA's top players. Her combination of beauty and athleticism make her a dream for sports photographers. 

And Ms. Delle Donne did not disappoint. Her 19 points helped elevate the Sky to a 82-60 win.

WNBA: New York Liberty vs Chicago Sky https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/8/wnba-new-york-liberty-vs-chicago-sky In what could be a preview of the WNBA playoffs, the 1st place New York Liberty hosted the Chicago Sky at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately, the much-anticipated matchup was dampened when Elena Delle Donne, the Sky's star player and MVP candidate, injured her ankle in a previous game and was unable to play against the Liberty. The Liberty, led by Epiphanny Prince's 22 points, stormed past Chicago 84-63.

But for me, the true highlight of the evening was meeting WNBA President Laurel Richie. As a die-hard WNBA fan since Day 1, it was a thrill to express how much I love this sport and appreciate all the work she's doing. Ms. Richie was very gracious and warm and even posed for a photo with me!

Season Opener: Brooklyn Cyclones vs Staten Island Yankees https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/6/season-opener-brooklyn-cyclones-vs-staten-island-yankees The Brooklyn Cyclones are the minor league team of the New York Mets and play at scenic Coney Island. Their rivalry with the Staten Island Yankees is as long as the team's 15 year existence. Brooklyn Cyclone baseball games always a fun, family-spirited vibe. I love capturing that atmosphere as much as do the games themselves. Unfortunately, the Cyclones lost their season opener by the score of 8-3.

WNBA: New York Liberty vs. Indiana Fever at Madison Square Garden https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/6/wnba-indiana-fever-defeat-new-york-liberty I've been a die-hard fan of the WNBA and the New York Liberty since the league started in 1997. Even though I photographed these same 2 teams at NJ's Prudential Center, it was a thrilling honor to shoot them on their home court in Madison Square Garden. As a fan attending the games at The Garden for so many years, I often found myself watching the photographers sitting under the basket and wondered when it would be me sitting there. Well tonite, IT WAS ME!!! Incredibly exciting, and plus I got to shoot the game with my photographer friend John, aka "Gemini Keez" (check out his work!). Even though the Liberty lost, it was still a great night, and one for the memory books...

"True Blue" Charity Celebrity Softball Game at Yankee Stadium https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/6/-true-blue-charity-celebrity-softball-game-at-yankee-stadium I've been shooting professional sporting events for over three years, but none have been as emotionally fulfilling as the "True Blue" celebrity softball game at Yankee Stadium. The event supported the families of slain NYPD officers Rafael Ramos, Wenjian Liu and Brian Moore (the families were in attendance). Over 16,000 fans were in the stands...

The event was hosted by sports radio talk show hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton of WFAN. Many New York-area athletes, coaches, celebrities and politicians were in attendance, including former NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, NJ Governor Chris Christie, beloved New York Yankees Joe Torre, Bernie Williams and Willie Randolph, former New York Mets John Franco and Lee Mazzilli, New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles, NY Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan, New York Knicks legend John Starks, Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee and many more....

Being a lifelong, die-hard sports fan, "True Blue" was an absolute joy to shoot. The combination of shooting at Yankee Stadium (I've been a Yankees fan since childhood) and photographing favorite athletes and celebrities could not be beat. Plus, all the celebrities clearly enjoyed being part of "True Blue" as they were all smiles and good vibes throughout the night, often interacting with fans. A great night for a great cause!

I've shot Miguel Cotto before...his ferocity, tattoos and punching power make him a visual joy to shoot. He did not disappoint in his defeat of Daniel Geale, scoring a TKO in the 4th round. Adding to the fun were rapper Big Sean, who performed a mini-concert before the big fight. Up next for the popular Cotto?  A highly-anticipated fight vs. Canelo Alvarez this fall. Can't wait!

The "Millions March" in Harlem to Support Baltimore (Part 2) https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/5/millions-march-in-harlem-nyc-in-support-of-baltimore-the-death-of-freddie-gray-part-2 The Millions March in Harlem was held to show support for Baltimore, MD which had experienced unrest due to the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody. The march also honored the many other young Black men (and women) nationwide who lost their lives because of police brutality.

During the march we made three major stops: the 28th police precinct, the 30th police precinct, and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Speeches were made by Millions March organizers at each stop, and a moment of silence was held at both police precincts. As you'll see in the photos, we were heavily shadowed by NYPD on foot, cars and motorcycles the entire time, but there were no arrests or violence.

As a photographer, this was my second time participating/documenting a protest, the first being last November after a grand jury chose not to indict Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. As a Black female photographer, both experiences were incredibly empowering and rewarding. Looking forward to covering more protests and rallies in the future....

The "Millions March" in Harlem to Support Baltimore (Part 1) https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/5/capturing-the-millions-march-in-harlem-nyc-in-support-of-baltimore The Millions March in Harlem was held to show support for Baltimore, MD which had experienced unrest due to the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody. The march also honored the many other young Black men (and women) nationwide who lost their lives because of police brutality.

During the march we made three major stops: the 28th police precinct, the 30th police precinct, and The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Speeches were made by Millions March organizers at each stop, and a moment of silence was held at both police precincts. As you'll see in the photos, we were heavily shadowed by NYPD on foot, cars and motorcycles the entire time, but there were no arrests or violence.

As a photographer, this was my second time participating/documenting a protest, the first being last November after a grand jury chose not to indict Darren Wilson for the murder of Michael Brown. As a Black female photographer, both experiences were incredibly empowering and rewarding. Looking forward to covering more protests and rallies in the future....

Wladimir Klitschko defeats Brandon Jennings at Madison Square Garden https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/4/wladimir-klitschko-defeats-brandon-jennings-at-madison-square-garden So just a few hours after covering the Brooklyn Nets vs Atlanta Hawks playoff game at Barclays Center, I was off to Madison Square Garden to photograph championship boxing: heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko vs. Brandon Jennings. The fight was a good one...Jennings was game...but it was Klitschko who dominated, to the thrill of the Ukrainian's fans, who filled the arena. All in all it was a long (the fight ended after midnight) but very exciting day as I love both boxing and basketball. And most importantly...I love what I do.

Danny "Swift" Garcia defeats Lamont Peterson at Barclays Center https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/4/danny-swift-garcia-defeats-lamont-peterson-at-barclays-center The bout between Danny "Swift" Garcia and Lamont Peterson was probably the most difficult sporting event I've ever shot. Why? For whatever reasons, Lamont Peterson never came to play. He spent the VAST majority of the 12-round fight dodging and avoiding Garcia, much to the dismay of the fans (and my fellow photographers). It's hard to get compelling shots when only one man is actually fighting. Garcia himself was the most frustrated, at one point stopping in the middle of the round, gesturing to Peterson to stop running and fight. Later, Garcia literally pushed Peterson onto the mat in another display of frustration. It was an easy fight for Garcia to win, but it was the fans who truly lost.

Boxing: Peter Quillin vs. Andy Lee Ends in a Draw https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/4/boxing-peter-quillin-vs-andy-lee-ends-in-a-draw I've been a boxing fan since childhood, so it's always been a thrill to shoot live matches. However it is a tough sport to shoot. You really have to anticipate the moves of BOTH boxers in order to capture the best moments, from a solid left hook to that knockout punch. But shooting boxers really makes you appreciate the intensity and strategies of the "sweet science" even more...

This is my second time shooting Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin, a boxer whom I've been impressed with in the past. I was surprised he didn't win this match as he really dominated the early rounds, but was never able to put his opponent Andy Lee away. Lee was very resilient, and showed his skills in the later rounds. The fight was declared a draw, much to the dismay of the fans at Barclays Center.

The Nets are currently in the 8th and final spot for a playoff berth. With the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers also fighting for that final spot, each game is now a must win for the surging Nets. Three more games to the regular season. Will the Nets make it?

Janelle Monae in Concert at Best Buy Theater in NYC https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/4/janelle-monae-in-concert Janelle Monae is one of my favorite singers, so when Samsung gave free tickets to owners of their phones for an exclusive concert by her...I jumped at the chance. The concert took place at Best Buy Theater in NYC and was amazing. Ms. Monae is quite the performer with tons of energy...to the delight of her devoted fans. Her style is both electric and eclectic, clearly influenced by Prince, James Brown, Michael Jackson and others. It all shines through onstage.

Afterwards, I had the opportunity to attend a "Meet and Greet" with Ms. Monae. As I approached her for a photo, she complimented my dreadlocs, to my delight. She thanked me coming and I returned the sentiment. TERRIFIC night. If you get the chance to see her live...GO.

Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams has Best Game of Season vs. Toronto Raptors https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/4/spotlight-on-brooklyn-nets-guard-deron-williams Star point guard Deron Williams was red-hot last night vs. arch-rival Toronto Raptors, helping them win 114-109. D-Will had  31 points on 11-for-18 from the field, 5-of-7 from behind the arc, 11 assists, and a rebound, making it his best game all season. The Nets have won 6 in a row during this late-season surge, as they fight for a place in the post-season playoffs. If D-Will and the equally productive Brook Lopez continue this type of play, it should be no problem...

Highlights from the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game! https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/2/moments-from-the-nba-all-star-celebrity-game The NBA All-Star Game is being held in Madison Square Garden this year. I had the privilege of covering the All-Star Celebrity Game, which mixes celebrities with NBA legends and current WNBA players...

The West team was coached by Spike Lee, John McEnroe and sportscaster Mike Golic. The team included actors Nick Cannon, Anthony Anderson, Ansel Elgort and Jesse Williams; comedian Sarah Silverman and athletes Mo'ne Davis, Skylar Diggins and Chris Mullin. Meanwhile the East was coached by New York Knick Carmelo Anthony and sportscaster Mike Greenberg. Their team included comedian Kevin Hart, actors Chadwick Boseman & Michael Rapaport; rapper/actor Common and athletes Shoni Schimmel, Allan Houston and Tina Charles. The West defeated the East 57-51, with Hart winning his 4th MVP in a row.

A great night of humor and hoops!

See Brooklyn's Spectacular Kings Theatre Before it Opens to the Public (Part 2) https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/2/the-ornate-intricate-details-of-the-kings-theatre The Loews Kings Theatre was once a grand, sumptuous entertainment palace in the heart of Flatbush, Brooklyn. Films and vaudeville acts played there amidst its opulent interiors until it closed in 1977. It then became a rotting, dilapidated, ignored shell of its former self....until 2 years ago, when a $95 million, massive re-building began. It is now a grand, gorgeous, supremely sublime theater...and with 3200 seats, it's Brooklyn's largest. The Kings is set to re-open to the public on February 3, with Diana Ross performing the inaugural concert. Over 200 performances will play there annually, with Gladys Knight, Frankie Valli, the Moscow Ballet, Sarah McLachlan and Crosby Stills & Nash already lined up.

What I loved most about the Kings Theatre are the intricate artistic details...from the Fleur de Lis symbol (a recurring theme), to the faces and designs carved into the pillars. They were a joy to discover and photograph...and are shared below.

Meet the NBA's kinetic Toronto Raptors https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/1/expressions-of-the-nbas-toronto-raptors The NBA's Toronto Raptors came to Barclays Center to play the Brooklyn Nets, in a rematch of their 7-game playoff series last year...which Brooklyn won. This season things are quite different: the Raptors are currently the 2nd best team in the Eastern Conference, with nearly twice as many wins a the struggling Nets. And it showed...shooting the Raptors was a joy, as they were happy, casual and kinetic during their pre-game warmups. And the game was highly entertaining...it went into overtime, with the Raptors clawing through 127-122.

Check out the NBA's most eclectic team, the Washington Wizards! https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2015/1/check-out-the-nbas-most-eclectic-team-the-washington-wizards Of all the teams visiting the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center this season, the one I was looking forward to shooting the most was the Washington Wizards. From the mohawk-ed Marcin Gortat to perennially handsome Kris Humphries to future Hall-of-Famer Paul Pierce, this is an eclectic squad of men, and one of the hottest teams in the NBA. A joy to shoot...

Washington Wizards' Marcin Gortat goes for the three-pointer Washington Wizards' Bradley Beal and John Wall Dreadlocks flying, this Washington Wizards' forward goes only by one name: Nene

Indiana Pacers: What a Difference a Year Makes https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2014/12/indiana-pacers-what-a-difference-a-year-makes I remember photographing the Indiana Pacers about a year ago at Barclays Center...and was quite impressed by them. They were a serious, business-like, well-oiled machine....and the hottest team in the NBA. They were unstoppable. 

And then everything drastically changed: a disastrous 2nd half of the season and they lost two of their stars, Paul George and Lance Stephenson, during the off-season. 

When I photographed them recently at Barclays...it was clear they were a totally different team. They now have a losing record and are unlikely to make the playoffs. That well-oiled machine I watched with awe a year ago was nowhere to be seen. Yet they still had the muster to defeat the Brooklyn Nets handily that night, 110-85. But I wonder how often current Pacers Roy Hibbert, David West, George Hill, C.J. Watson and Luis Scola...and their fans...reminisce about a year ago and wonder what could have been.

Roy HIbbert shoots as fellow Pacer David West looks on.... Luis Scola of the Indiana Pacers dunks one in...

That man takes "smooth" to a whole new level. Wearing a green suit to match his incomparable eyes, Smokey was quite the charmer, wooing his audience with hits like "Being with You", "Cruisin" and "Tears of a Clown".  At age 74 Smokey Robinson...like his music...is ageless and fine as wine.

Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose comes to Brooklyn... https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2014/12/chicago-bulls-derrick-rose-comes-to-brooklyn Because of his numerous injuries, the Chicago Bulls' superstar point guard Derrick Rose has missed most of the last 2 seasons. Which means he's  never played at Barclays Center...until today. As a photographer, Rose was fun to shoot...the 2011 NBA MVP came across as unassuming yet very focused. And as you can see, ALL eyes at Barclays were on him. D-Rose played a good game (14 points in 26 minutes) in his Brooklyn debut, as the Bulls defeated the Nets 102-84.

From Ferguson to NYC (and the shutdown of the FDR)... https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2014/11/from-ferguson-to-nyc-and-the-shutdown-of-the-fdr There were many protests and demonstrations last night in reaction to officer Darren Wilson not being indicted for the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. There were quite a few protests in the NYC-area alone. The one I attended began in Union Square Park and migrated to the Lower East Side. From there the protesters literally SHUT DOWN the busy FDR Drive, one of NYC's largest, most-traveled roadways. The mood was peaceful...but impassioned. It was an emotional night around the country.

He said one of the hardest sports to shoot is HOCKEY. I learned this for myself when I photographed the New York Islanders vs New Jersey Devils at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The action is quick and virtually non-stop. But the key to it all is keeping your camera focused on that constantly moving puck! It was quite a challenge...but lots of fun.

Black Female Photographers Day https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2014/9/black-female-photographers-day On September 13, 2014, Black female photographers gathered in cities around the country and engaged in a photo walk. I joined the New York City contingent hosted by Zoraida Lopez at Highline Park. It was wonderful meeting women of my race and culture who shared the same passion. We walked, took pictures, shared our experiences and love for photography. We took photos of nature, of the buildings surrounding us and of course...each other. Made a few new friends along the way, including Nicole Mondestin, Wanda Lotus and Akinfe Fatou. Ms. Lopez did a fantastic job as organizer. Looking forward to more experiences with these ladies in the future!

The Brooklyn Nets are all smiles… https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2014/1/74550493008 I love shooting teams during their warmups, as you get to see another side to their personalities. Their uber-serious “game faces” aren’t on yet, and it’s fascinating to see players being much more lighthearted and frankly…more like one of “us”..

Photographing the Brooklyn Nets this season, I’ve seen a major change…when shooting them earlier this season when they losing practically every game, the mood was decidedly solemn. Now that they’ve turned things around and won their last 9 of 10 games, that solemnity has lifted…the Nets are smiling, joking…and much more at ease.

Brooklyn Nets vs Miami Heat on “Nickname Jersey... https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2014/1/72987808700 The NBA has implemented “Nickname Jerseys” across the league, adding even more fun to this high-octane sport. The Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat were the first teams to where them during an actual game…fans can purchase them at local stores. Some nicknames (eg LeBron’s “King James”) were pretty obvious, while others were a little surprising….

 




LeBron "King" James takes on Andrei Kirilenko, who's Nickname Jersey cleverly reflected his Russian heritage...


Alan "Double" Anderson, Shaun "S Dot" Livingston and Kevin "Big Ticket" Garnett get ready for tip-off...


Arguably the cleverest "Nickname Jersey" was Ray Allen's, which read "J. Shuttlesworth", his character in Spike Lee's "He Got Game"!

Brooklyn Nets vs. Milwaukee Bucks, Dec. 27, 2013 https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2013/12/71424021888 As a photographer, there are few things more exciting than being up close and personal with the action you are shooting. It’s about knowing you are a PART of the scene…and capturing it for eternity…whether it’s a wedding, a concert or a professional basketball game. It’s about the thrill of doing what you love…to the highest degree.

Barclays Center, Brooklyn New York

Jazz, Colors and Autumn in Central Park... https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2013/11/66591994739 "Jazz & Colors" is one of New York’s best events: 30 up-and-coming jazz bands jammin’ throughout Central Park. Loved it last year, and it was even better this year. For me, the combination of live jazz, autumnal colors and Central Park is a serene, soul-stirring, unstoppable combination. Love it!

 






The Russell Hall Quartet are deservedly all smiles....


Drummer Kimberly Thompson (of her eponymous quartet) shows her saxophonist some love...


Loved this red-flavored duo dancing to the Russell Hall Quartet....




The trio ELEW and the Nature of the Next perform "A Night in Tunisia"....






The James Marshall Quintet perform "So What" against the loveliest autumn colors...

“The Package Tour” (New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees) https://www.lolitalens.com/blog/2013/6/53922663598 The 90’s returned to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in the form of “The Package Tour”: New Kids on the Block, 
Boyz II Men and 98 Degrees. All three groups looked and sounded great. Much of the adoring audience appeared to be 30-something women, giddily enjoying a “girls night out”. I wondered how many are moms with daughters screaming for today’s teen idols...Justin Bieber and One Direction.
