Pics from NYC--

The wife and I headed up to NYC in February for her birthday/Valentine's Day. It was both our first time there. I loved it, she didn't like it. We stayed in the Upper West Side. We were only there for two days, so we only scratched the surface... Anyway a couple pics:

Love the pictures Robert. Manhattan sure is an awe inspiring city isn't it?

Been there a few times and loved every minute of it. First time I was on my own with a friend for about 4 days. The second time I went I stayed with family that knew the city inside and out and man was it a blast.

Two days isn't long enough to form an opinion of a city I think. I say that because when I went to Vegas for the first time I hated it for about the first 36 hours. Could have had something to do with it being our honeymoon and I was dead tired. After the second day, Vegas really started to grow on me, and after day 7 when we had to leave I didn't want to go.

What didn't your wife like about Manhattan?

Nice pics. Great place to visit for a day or two but I could never live there.

Well, when we got in it was raining, so everything was twice as grungy as normal. It's not like it's all that clean on a dry day, but add a bit of water and the grime becomes obvious.

And like any good Texan I think she was mourning the loss of her 'personal freedom'-- not having a car. Personally I like the idea of possibly never having to make another car or insurance payment again.

I just looked at the rest of your pictures, you have one helluva talent. I hope you work your patients as well as you work your camera and imagination.

Your long exposure night shots are really cool. They are some of my favorite to take too. I really like your fish eye\ultra wide shots too. You sure did find the best ways to use them.

The long exposure shots are actually all hand-held, I didn't want to mess with a tripod, and they weren't allowed a lot of places. That's why they're so grainy, because I had to push the ISO really high.

I rented the fisheye for the trip-- It's a Sigma 10-17 zoom. It's not very fast, only f 3.5-4.5, but at that short of a focal length it doesn't really matter.

Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate it. I've often thought about trying to use my photography to make a living, but a bad experience with a being forced to shoot a family wedding when I'd rather have not, sucked the fun out of photography at all for awhile. It's April and I'm just now getting to where spending enough time to process pictures from February sounds fun.

I can understand understand that. Personnaly, I wouldn't ever want to drive in the city. It's just insane there.
