New York Photos

We arrived in New York Thursday late afternoon. No snow but dry. After checking in to hotel we went straight out taking photographs, all night time shots.
The Woolworth Building was first followed by Brooklyn Bridge. Too much vibration from traffic for long exposures from the bridge but great shots from Brooklyn.
Many more lights than in May so buildings were ablaze with lights.

Friday was overcast until early afternoon. Didn't matter for some shots and others I retook later on.
Staying in the Downtown part of Manhattan put us in a good place for shots of Wall Street, SoHo fire escapes and Ground Zero (now a huge building site).
For night shots we walked to Midtown and the Empire State Building and Chrysler building. Dinner was in the Heartland Brewery next to the Empire State Building. Jolly tasty Porter on draught.
We finished with some shots of the Rochefeller Centre and the ice rink.

Saturday we visited Liberty Island for shots of the Statue of Liberty.
It's enormous up close! Then on to Ellis Island before heading back to Manhattan Waterfront on the East River.
It was raining the last time we were here so I took a few shots before returning to hotel for bags and taxi to airport.
So far I have taken 27 rolls of Ilford FP4 at 10 shots per roll of 120 film.

Last night we flew Delta to Denver where our old friend Rob was waiting for us. We were soon back in Boulder having achat until the small hours with Rob and Annie. Sounds like Rob has lots of plans for us based on what I requested for photo needs.

Today we catch up and hire ski gear and visit some of the local hostelries (around 7 micro breweries here).

Will drop off film for processing Tuesday night or Wednesday morning at local pro lab.
