QUICK TRIP TO NY : CONCRETE JUNGLE

Although we didn’t get a chance to spend as much time as we would have liked taking pictures, testing out our new baby in and around New York on our recent trip, we still managed to take a few…After visiting friends and family, next on our list was our visit to the world famous B&H Photo & Video store that we mentioned in our previous post.

This place never ceases to amaze me how it seems to stay packed at all times.

Of course we couldn’t leave without making at least one small purchase.

This is what it felt like at times as we were walking around downtown just before rush hour, everything was a blur and of course everyone is in a hurry to get to where they are going.

Yes this is Tiffany supporting a local ‘vendor’…..I’ll stop there.

There must be one of these on every corner.

How cute was this, only in New York….

This is our little buddy DJ (Tiffany’s nephew), although he had a pretty rough start in life with frequent trips to the hospital and numerous operations he is growing up nicely.  Doesn’t he look like a little old man???

Great view from Central Park

It was such a great day out that we weren’t surprised to see a number of wedding parties in the park taking pictures.

Can you guess who doesn’t belong in this next picture???  We only wish we had recorded this moment because the guy on the bottom right was so impressed at how nice everyone looked in the wedding party from the previous picture that he just had to take pictures and record them himself, although he was constantly in the way of the actual photographers and videographers that were right behind him repeatedly asking him to step to the side….Too funny!

We couldn’t help but to stop and take an impromptu photo session while walking through Central Park.  I just love the color that comes out of this camera, especially in these next few.

You wouldn’t know that it was getting close to midnight in this final shot, this is truly the city that never sleeps.

A LITTLE TREAT TO OURSELVES : NEW CAMERA

Every now and again we all feel like we are entitled to treat ourselves to something nice.  We work hard (most of us), we sacrifice at times, and many times do not stop and smell the roses, so to speak.  We have decided that moving forward we are going to do a lot more “rose smelling.”  This has begun in the form of a gift to ourselves and the business, that arrived at our door step not too long ago in the form of a box from B&H.  If you know anything about photography, you will know that B&H is probably the largest camera supply store in the world, located right in the heart of NYC.  Ok enough about them….we decided that it was time to upgrade our camera system, so we purchased a new Canon 5D Mark II.

It took abut 5 seconds from the time we signed for our package (meeting the UPS man almost at his truck) that the box went from sealed to ripped apart, revealing the awesome machinery inside.  We also added another lens to our arsenal.

We can’t wait to get out there and test this puppy out (no pun intended).  It is already well known for its outstanding image quality, full 1080p HD video recording, and high-iso performance (for the photog types reading this).  After configuring it just the way we like it, we plan on testing all of that out hopefully this weekend as we are headed to NY to visit family and friends.  I’m sure we will find time to take a few touristy (is that a word?) pic’s while in the city.  Happy “rose smelling” to us.

Will we have another red October here in Philadelphia this fall?

After a beautiful opener by the Philadelphia Phillies yesterday (11-1 against the Nationals), we thought it would be a good idea to post a few of the pictures we took back in 2008 after they won their first World Series what seemed like 150 yrs….. We are sure just about everyone in the Philadelphia tri-state area is hoping for a 3-peat trip to the World Series.  We shall see….
