3 words “gynecological beauty pageant” My good friend Rob aka Opie corrupted my mind in college with this flick, a definite see, recommended after a late long night of debauchery when your brain no longer has the resistant cells to rationalize
There was great sunlight this morning walking to work through Chinatown. I initially had passed this guy and decided not to take a photo of him just out of respect. Not everyone likes photo’s being taken of them and with the homeless it’s an even dodgy proposition.
Since I didn’t make it up to the Empire State the night of the first snow I decided to go the next day. This actually turned out much better, the snow was still there except now I got a full sky of sun. It was still blistery cold up there though.
So the storm came through starting last week Wednesday, starting late Tuesday night. I had the brilliant idea of going up to the Empire State Building to capture the city blanketed in snow. Since i missed the first storm that came right before Christmas, I was kinda looking forward to this. The winds were way to strong and if you’ve been up in the tower before you know it gets bidly cold with additional wind. I have a cheap as tripod that would not withstand the wind and I still need to save up for a much stronger and better lens for low light shooting. I didn’t get out of work in time. I made it to 33rd but after trying to get these shots with snow blowing directly into my lens, decided to bounce on the idea. I did however capture this shot.
