Going through all of the pictures brought back soooo many memories!! And I only actually took a camera out with us for one day!
I shot Cheryl’s 5D and a 50 1.4 lens and grabbed everything from the hip. (this proved much more difficult than I thought it would, I’m used to doing that with a 16mm lens…)
Street photography is a kick in the pants and I need to get out and do it more often! I was trying to sneak pictures of people on the subway, but I got a little freaked out after the first person sorta caught me!!
People just don’t follow direction well wherever you go:
I tried to get it in focus, and got lucky and got it out of focus:
One really cool thing about New York City (and there’s a lot of cool things…) is that people tend to find time to sit down, to gather in common areas and to take it all in.
Kyle and Debbie Bisceglie told Cheryl and I that we HAD to check out the Great Reading Room at the New York City Public Library, and to say the least, we were IMPRESSED! (the library even had one of Gutenberg’s original prints of the Bible!!!) What an amazing room:
My buddy and fellow wedding photographer Mike Larson told me I absolutely had to take the Staten Island Ferry (it’s free….) and the views were definitely well worth the cost! 😉 We also took the time to ride the Staten Island Rail Road down to my buddy David Salomone’s Photo Studio!
Then we got caught in the rain on our way back:
Sadly, we spent about 20-30 minutes trying to catch a cab in the pooring rain with all of our luggage, and cabbies kept stopping, rolling down their windows, saying ok, then I’d turn my back and they’d drive off…. (my only bad experience in NYC)
