November 5-on-5: NYC for a day
This was the second year I was able to head up to the PhotoPlus Expo in NYC with the Lancaster Camera Club. Last year's trip was a lot of fun and spending that day with 2 other photographers I admire, I ended up leaving that day with some awesome knowledge about street photography and I new sling for my camera (that I still use daily because it is amazing).
This year I seemed more unimpressed with the show. I am not sure if it was because I had been there before, or if because I knew exactly what I wanted to look at. I have found myself at a place where I have been researching and I know what gear would be helpful and what wouldn't be.
My inspiration for the day came after lunch when friends and I explored the High Line. I am pretty sure I found that little slice of heaven in NYC. Not only do I love old buildings, but I love seeing things repurposed for a greater good. Not only that but for the first time in my 29 years, I saw the statue of liberty in person (even if it was from a far distance away).
I loved walking around and exploring the city, and I cant wait to go back. There is something amazing about being in an amazingly busy place and no one notices you are even there. It's an extroverted introvert's heaven.
And while the break from editing my fall sessions was nice, I definitely need to get back to it. While you are here, and it is the weekend after all, be sure to take a few minutes to look at my friend Stephanie's story this month. Stephanie Woodward is a Salt Lake City, Utah Family Documentary Photographer. Enjoy your relaxing and reading, and I will be sure to be back on Dec 5th for another blog circle, probably holiday related- as well as in between with some fantastic client sessions I have coming up.
