And We're Back from New York City

We experienced an amazing, fun-filled, and busy weekend in Manhattan meeting Megan's long lost cousins from the island of Lifou.  We didn't have much time to spare, but we did find time to make it to the American Museum of Natural History, Times Square, and Rockefeller Plaza.

Happy Christmas!

In the Winter.... photographic attention turns to our backyard bur oak.  I can stretch the camera outside our upstairs bathroom window for some amazing perspectives.  This stiched panorama did the job of portraying just how massive and gnarled the limbs really are.

Took Many Pictures, but Produced Very Few Photographs

We live right next to a big,  gnary, 100+ year-old bur oak. 

Have you ever come back from a photo shoot thinking you took a bunch of great pictures? Maybe you didn't put everything you had into each picture, but you took so many, there had to be a few good ones in there?

That's the story of my weekend.  Lots of pictures, very few photographs.  I struggled to find something to share with you this evening.  Simply put, quantity does not equal quality.

What I've Gained from the North Side Fix

When the massive "North Side Fix" project began here in Columbus, I was not excited.  I have a reverse commute, and the fixes to the massive interchange just north of our house would actually increase my commute time.  But the silver lining?  At this time of year, I'm sitting in traffic with a stunning view of the sunset.  Just a little change has resulted in an entirely different point of view for my camera.

New York Rooftop Sunset

There's something romantic about being on the rooftop.  Looking down below all that's going on, knowing you've found a little corner of the world to just sit and watch the sunset.  This concludes my lookback at some of my favorite images from previous travels to NYC.  Now, it's time to decide which gear I'll be taking and what types of photographs I'd like to bring back this time.

Rooftop Running in NYC

There's nothing quite like watching a sunset from a rooptop in Manhattan.  During our 2010 visit, Weston had a blast running around on the roof.  By this time, he had recovered from the terror that was the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.  He needed to get out some energy.  Yes, we were some 30 or so floors up, and there was a nice fence, but it still made unnerved me.  Alas, he survived.

Tomorrow I'll bring an end to the New York Series. During our upcoming trip I'm not going to have a ton of time to photographing explore the city, but hopefully I'll get a few new images that I like. We'll be staying in the Upper West Side.  Do you have a favorite NYC location that shouldn't be missed for photography?
