So, I just realized it has been over a month since my last post but it never seems like that much time has past every time I think about it. I figured another few shots from our time outside the apartment might be in order, so here we go with a few pictures from The Rambling, a single section from Central Park. These were taken a few weeks ago and feature an amazing little rock climbing dog we met as well as a few good shots of the nature to be found in Central park.
Also, be on the look-out for a new post coming up from our visit to Arthur Ashe Stadium during the US Open. As always, feel free to share this post and if you would like to let me know what you think or request larger versions of the images you can email me.
Sometimes you take a picture which you just absolutley love, and this is one of them for me. Though I can’t take all the credit for it as Haley had to tell me to re-take it from this particular angle. The best part of this image is that it was just the beginning of our day! For the third installment of Outings in New York City we have the Egypt installment at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I think I have a couple of good shots in the bunch and if you would like a larger copy of any or want to give me a few notes, feel free to email me. Starting this out with my favorite, a shot from the 23rd Street subway platform on the way to the MET:
About two weekends ago Haley and I took a trip out to the Brooklyn bridge and actually remembered to bring the camera so we have a few more pictures for the world. We took a subway down to City Hall in NYC and walked from the Manhattan side over to the Brooklyn side, taking the time to get a few good shots from under the bridge. Just like last time, if you like them then feel free to share this post or comment here and email me if you would like larger copies. Enjoy!
Haley and I have occationally been heading out and making use of the camera we bought before our trip to New York but I have not taken the opportunity to post any of them yet. So, over the next couple of days I am hoping to get at least a couple of the more decent images off the SD card and posted on here. The images I am sharing today are of the U.S. Women’s Soccer team’s ticker tape parade after their amazing win against Japan in the World Cup. To see more of the shots from the parade just click the “Read More” link below this first image. If you like them, please feel free to share this post or comment here and email me if you would like larger copies. Enjoy!
In the coming week I will be leaving the Greater Atlanta Metro area for the confines of a one bedroom apartment in the middle of Manhattan. This is a voluntary move for an opportunity offered to me through my work for The Home Depot. I will be pairing with a company during my time in NYC to build my skill-set on the Extreme Programming front. The current plan places me up north for around a 22 week stint and I am extremely excited to be going.
The real fun starts early next week when Haley, Maggie (the dog), and I grab a rental car and hit the road for the 14 hour drive. We will be making it a two day trek up the east coast, arriving in New York in the early afternoon. It was absolute hell trying to find a hotel which worked with the internal reservation system and would accept pets without a $100-$250 non-refundable pet fee. This could have all been avoided if any airline would accept Boston Terriers in the cabin, but apparently “snub” nosed dogs are no longer allowed. Oh well, it will make for a great adventure getting up there.
