In all the craziness of the holiday season I was only able to photograph in Manhattan one evening. What I was trying to portray were some images of icons that were taken from a different vantage point.
Unfortunately I don’t think my attempts were that good. But thats one of the reasons we keep trying ad coming back for more. I’m never happy with what images I make, I always want to do better. Its a character flaw! Its easy to say I will just “visit here again” but what you see now might be different on many levels when you return, even to the exact same spot. I was not well prepared on this evening for making great images and it shows. I have to do better next time.
The holidays wouldn’t be the same without the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
Images captured with Nikon D4s and 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 on Lexar digital film.
I wish all of you, new friends made in 2011 and old, a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Prosperous 2012. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, then I wish you the Happiest of Holiday Seasons. I hope each of you have the opportunity over the next few days to spend time with those you love and to reflect on how lucky we all are. It goes by fast folks so make the most of the time you have. If you are like me, and worked your tail off the last 25 years to provide for your family, then I have this simple piece of advice for you……..There is no time like the present. Its never too late to make a difference in a loved ones life! 🙂
I have a lot to be thankful for. Not the least of which are my 3 wonderful kids and a very understanding wife who puts up with a lot being married to me ;-).
I plan on giving the 4 of them as much of my time as I can over the next week, so I will be scarce on the social media scene until the New Year.
To all my American friends, I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I am thankful for so many things its hard to remember them all. Most importantly I am blessed to have a wonderful wife and 3 great kids that I get to spend this holiday with, not to mention my parents, sisters and their families. I also feel incredibly blessed that we have the great fortune to live in a land that is free, protected by many who risk their lives to ensure our freedom. As you gather tomorrow, please say a prayer for them.
We celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S. today, a time to reflect and give thanks for the wonderful things life has bestowed upon us. I will be spending the next few days with my biggest blessing, my wife and 3 wonderful children and will be back posting on Monday.
