Made a quick trip to the East coast back in May 2015 for a good friend's 35th birthday.
Not much was taken on the SLR, as I was attempting to go all analog and iPhone on this particular trip. It's a tricky balance, plainly put, juggling between all THREE cameras. Oi. AND walking here, there, everywhere - by the time we made it to our destination, I was all tuckered out! So yah, got lazy and ended up using the iPhone for most of the creative snaps, candid moments, and ninja shots.
Though - I am a bit miffed that I didn't take enough foodie pix! And missed out on a friend's rooftop Italian dinner party. Or never making it to Williamsburg to meet up a friend!
But there were many, many memorable moments. AirBnBing once again in our beloved East Village. Celebrating an ol' high school friend's birthday. Finally meeting an online acquaintance of 15 years - a real New Yorker, born and bred, with a flare for stories and an easy going disposition. This guy. It was like meeting up a long time buddy! Chatting it up in a pastry shop, chatting it up while he chauffeured us around on a rainy NYC day, chatting it up so much we didn't realize he sneakily bought us a boxful of pastries as a welcome gift right in front of us! (Also, how very Asian of you, Rich!) This friendship, it was meant to be. =)
We'll be back, NYC. Hopefully sooner than later!
Next up! The rest of the 2015 Travels! LA, Iceland, Italy, Holland!
