Random Beautiful Things by Alex Covo

My name is Alex. This blog showcases my photography. I'm a New York City based photographer and motion artist.
I love to shoot random beautiful things juxtaposed against the grit, texture and beautiful decay of the world around me.
I love shooting black and white photos, but I'll still shoot color when it suits me :)
I hope to inspire others one day just like those that inspire me today! xx

PS. All the pics and videos on this site were shot by me, unless stated otherwise. Please feel free to reblog!

Another place. Another time. The stillness of the cold winter day still lingers in my thoughts. Forever etched in my imagination.

A moment when nothing else matters. A moment in time.

I find comfort in the dark places of my memories, where there is only truth and beauty.

Light is the brush I will paint with, revealing beauty on this canvas of darkness.

movement in the shadow of the day.

I will take the greyest of days, the darkest of moods, and the shadows that coexist in the beautiful decay of our existence, every single moment of my life.
