There is something humbling about flying into New York City and seeing the never-ending buildings that blanket all the land in sight. It turns magical when it is dark and all you see is lights as far as the eye can see. It truly makes you realize the vast amounts of people in such a concentrated area and all that entails for a society, city and a lifestyle. However, for a far more simplistic take on the view, it also creates a pretty nice photograph….
See you in 2013!
Our fall was full of amazing weddings (and not just our own:))!
One of my wonderful friends married her amazing partner this past fall at a wonderful venue at the south street seaport overlooking Brooklyn!
The views were almost as breathtaking as the wedding (and the couple) itself!
Warm summer nights are one of my favorite parts of the summer! After an evening rainstorm I took a walk down to the water to watch the sunset and capture some post rain storm evening skyline shots…
The Brooklyn Bridge with the clouds illuminated with light from Times Square in the background.

… It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly a month since my last post!
But it’s not due to a lack of photos – I just have no time to upload them!
Here are few quick summertime shots to tide you over…
…Summertime sunset from the stoop!
… Summertime green market!
… Summernight in the empire state!
I’ve seen the construction of the 9/11 memorial from the very beginning and it has been a slow process… For a while I wasn’t sure if ANYTHING was ever going to start being constructed for the memorial. Finally however construction began. And although it is far from complete I got a chance to take a tour of the 9/11 memorial.
Although it isn’t complete I highly recommend a visit.
… as in the weather. I mean it’s Halloween too – but seriously – the weather is the most scary stuff I’ve seen in a while.
Here is a photo from our drive back from upstate on Saturday afternoon… this should NOT be happening in October!
So what better way to celebrate the first snow? Hunkering down in a bar of course…
Wine by candlelight
The way out...
Cheers to that.
This shot was taken during the roadtrip on one of our evening drives…
somewhere between Los Angeles and St. George, Utah.

Memorial Day weekend – warm night….
I got the privilege this year of getting to listen to the Philharmonic in not only Central Park but in Prospect park in Brooklyn. And although there will always be fond memories of all the Philharmonics I’ve heard in Central Park the Prospect Concert was great. Not that the music was any more amazing but that it was not as organized, more free-flowing. Kinda like Brooklyn!
Here are some night shots from the Philharmonic in Prospect Park…
