I was in New York for the 2010 Bridal Market and Wedding Style‘s book launch party at the Plaza Hotel. Just before meeting up with Yanni Tzoumas (Executive Editor), I decided to walk around Central Park.
I did not mean to, but I bought a scarf, tie and a hot dog from street vendors. What? I’m supporting the community. As odd as it was to have a hot dog for breakfast, I sat down and watched the birds harass the horses for a bit.
Out of courtesy, and because I was sitting down anyway, I took an HDR image of the horse carriages queued up for a trot.
I ♥ NY…and I love it even more because I love “Sex and the City.”
P.S. It was freezing in December, but I missed out on the snow. Sad day.
Yesterday, I was looking up various destinations for a potential holiday. While on Contiki’s website, I stumbled upon Europe and was reminded of a photo I wanted to enlarge for my wall.
I quickly sifted through my archives and found a sunset in Rome, Italy. I was walking along a bridge when this scenic view melted my heart. It was too bad that the couple I was photographing was not there. Otherwise, I would have loved to take advantage of the golden rays.
One of my friends just photographed a wedding in Rome, Italy – with the colosseum, ruins, etc. I won’t deny it…I was a bit jealous. Anyway, until next time…
P.S. I’m considering the Outback territory of Australia or an African safari…too bad I can’t just do both!
Last week I went to Vancouver, Canada for Image Explorations as the opening speaker where I discussed a number of business strategies for wedding photographers.
Afterwards, Julie and I hopped onto a Princess Cruise to see the Alaskan glaciers before they all melt. What a sight! I have never seen anything so majestic. After uploading it to facebook, a number of friends asked for a copy as a wallpaper. So here it is!
It’s all set for 1920×1200 resolution (so even for HD monitors) and HDR.
