Top of the Rock, September 2009. We were anyway, they were slightly below us. Just after the sun went down over the horizon, this crowd came out to play. Hell of a place for an office party. Hell of a place for a photowalk come to think of it.
I’ve been thinking over the last week or so that I need to blow the dust off the Diana and throw some film into it. I’m far more inclined to do that than go to the trouble of bringing the bronica out with me. This photo is neither here nor there really, it’s just a Diana Velvia shot from NYC that I was somewhat happy with and represents my inclination to shoot some more of the same!
As a lover of all things gadgety, I couldn’t resist visiting the Concorde that sits baking in the New York sun. This Concorde is now a very cramped tourist attraction. I never would have realised how small the cabin is/was inside until you have to walk around inside. Not for those with fears of flying or enclosed spaces.
Taking the opportunity to go back over an entire lightroom catalog after moving it all to the new computer, I realise I\’ve still processed very little of New York in 2009. Need to get moving on that, and well, lots more besides.
February 2003. My first visit to Canada also brought me to California for a week. It was, as you may expect, a week packed with as many tourist activities as one could possibly squeeze into such a relatively short period of time. I’ve neglected the blog a bit for the last couple of weeks but I have a good excuse. I’m on holiday! Seems a bit strange to be looking back on a photo I took in the US so many years ago and writing about it while sitting in a hotel room in New York. Holidays however are coming to an abrupt end in the coming couple of days.
