The much anticipated blog post has finally arrived.
Several of you have been asking me when these photos would be going up and I personally could not wait to share my first time in NYC with you lovely people. I have been extremely busy with school but now I am proud to announce that I am officially finished my post secondary education. Life will truly be lived from here on out, that is a promise! (To me)
Now on to NYC...
The ride was long and rough...but I somehow managed to make it on only 2 hours of sleep. (not recommended BTW) We arrived in the big city, but took a detour to Brooklyn to pick up what I initially went there for ... My brand new Canon 5D mkII, equip with my new 50mm f/1.2 and 16-35mm f/2.8 lenses!!! NYC is a perfect place to test out new gear :)
I went with 2 friends Amanda + Kev (they made sure I mentioned them...hi guys). They told me I would have a tough time dealing with them throughout the trip, but they were fine, partially because I learned to tune them out :) But seriously, they showed me the NYC ropes, as I was inexperienced. Their main objective was to insure that I had a good time and that I took some stellar photos, which I will let you judge for yourself. I would have been lost without you guys, so thank you very very much for introducing me to the big city which I have now fallen in love with. This trip will never be forgotten.
Truth is the true appreciation of the city didn't kick in until a couple of hours before we left. I didn't get to see close to as much as I wanted to, but that's ok because now it gives me more reason to keep going back...and each time I go, Roxy (the name I gave my camera this weekend) is coming along for the ride.
NYC is amazingly awesome and I look forward to sharing many more adventures with you from there and around the world...simply because I want to see it all :) (and so does Roxy)
