Trip to New York

by on Nov.13, 2009, under Photography

Nikki and I got back from our trip to New York last weekend (and, yes, I’m only now getting round to writing about it. It’s been a pretty busy week). Nikki was attending the Backspace Writers’ Conference and I had a couple of days to wander around taking pictures. We also managed to fit in a Broadway show on Friday night (Mary Poppins – it was excellent!) and a very enjoyable 5 hour dinner at “Angelo & Maxie’s Steakhouse” with one of Nikki’s high school friends.

My days were filled with long walks carrying far too much camera equipment. I reckon I covered something around 15 miles each day and ranged as far as Brooklyn from our hotel base at 32nd and Park Avenue. I ended up with about 600 pictures, most of which still need to go through the editing process. The gear-carrying was a test to see how I could handle the backpack over an extended trek and I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that I need to be more selective and carry a smaller bag when I go to Utah in February (for National Geographic photographer Raul Touzon’s Bryce Canyon and Zion photo expedition – won’t that be fun!).

Look out for more pictures over the coming couple of months as I find time to process them.
