Upstate New York

The conclusion to my NY trip: gorgeous lakes, trees, countryside, and fresh air...a complete 180 from all the hustle & bustle in Manhattan. We visited Ann's friend Tartyana & her family and all went apple picking first before heading over to Warwick Winery.

Let's start with this little cutie who I love to hug & squeeze!!! Lucia is Tartyana & Bart's amazing bundle of joy. I just met her for the first time and we became best friends.

NYC. The Finale.

So this is the final NYC post for this year, but not the last of New York since I'm saving some of my fav's of upstate NY as the sweet cherry on top! =) This series was taken on my last two days in the city exploring with Drew. We only had two full days together in NY since he flew in on Wednesday morning after completing his oral board exams in Minneapolis the day before. Celebration time, c'mon!!! Well, I guess technically we have to wait till next month to confirm that he passed and is officially board certified, but I'm sure he passed, so again, celebration time, c'mon!!! (sing it now!!!)

Ok, ok, focus now. Focus. It's picture viewing time starting with Central Park.

That's my bag in the corner, propping up the camera for this shot.

The obelisk, aka, Cleopatra's Needle. Check out the crabs on the bottom corners!

The most amazing thing about this obelisk was that it was erected in Egypt in 1500BC!!! Click on the Cleopatra's Needle link above to read more about how it got to Central Park.

I guess it's only on weekends or summers that they rent the RC boats for you to play with on the pond here. I was really looking forward to having a boat race with Drew too.

And for fun, some swirly camera action. If you have a DSLR, slow down your shutter speed to about 1/10s, hold the camera in one had, click and swirl the camera in a circle really fast at the same time. This is also a fun one to do at night when there are lights around.

The next day we trekked around Soho and went to a few small art galleries.

I love this one. It was rush hour on Broadway and the ice-cream lady was looking a bit sad that no one wanted to buy any ice-cream. She kept on looking left and right just waiting for someone to come. Sadly, for the ten minutes that I was watching, while eating inside D&D, no one came. =(

Remember Ramon, the polaroid photographer we met in Soho? Here's some video clips of him showing the process of his art, which may not be around for long since Polaroid stopped making their film.


The blonde lady here cracks me up!




A couple from the Holga at Chelsea Highline. I'm not sure what happened to my Holga during this New York trip, but every image came out blurrier than usual. I liked the result for a couple of images, but not for every single one. If anyone has a Holga and knows what happened, please let me know!

Last, but not least, a photo with the NY family crew. We love that they're living over there so that we always have a good reason to visit New York. On my left is Drew's cousin, Carol, who just started her medical rotations and never ceases to crack me up. Next to her is Drew's other cousin, Rich, who's expecting twins next year (whoohoo!!!) with his hubby Cobi (who's sitting next to him). And my awesome sister-in-law, Ann, who I always love hanging out with. And I'm not just saying that because she might read this, but because I really mean it. =)

Boudoir Slideshow

Just put together a quick slideshow of some boudoir images. Check out animoto.com to make your own photo slideshow!

NYC -the saga

I guess I really love this city because I can't seem to stop blogging pictures about it! Every time I come to New York, a bolt of energy races through me and I get excited waking up in the morning wondering what I'll discover that day. Mainly though, I just get energized by all the people I see when I step out onto the streets.

The diversity is like no other in the world here! You see it every time you ride on the subway, and it's not just differences in skin color and languages -which is amazing - but also how people dress here. I love me my flip flops and jeans, but sometimes you just want to jazz things up a little and in this city, you can definitely do that without sticking out like a sore thumb. So much style and funk here, it's like eye candy.

Aside from the people, the food here is divine, and the buildings...I'm so in love with the buildings. These next few are from the Chelsea area.

Chelsea has something called The Highline where trains used to run above the streets in the West Side. Friends of the Highline and the city of New York have now preserved the tracks and converted it to an awesome public park. I was such a fan of this place that I couldn't stop clicking away. Check out the chaise Drew's sitting on. It rolls on the tracks!

If someone can please tell me how they get the top cars down to the ground, I'd be very grateful. Does each car just slide out and then down?
