    Ok, here's my first batch.

    Note: These are all SNAPSHOTS taken with the point and shoot digicam Joe gave me for Christmas!

    1) Me and Joe. A little blurry, but I had to post, because yes . . . that window in the background DOES say B & H. ;)
    [​IMG]

    2) Eating a lemon? No. Joe's favorite pasttime is messing up my pictures.
    [​IMG]

    3) Sky, chimping!
    [​IMG]

    4) Joe's friend and old roomie, Dmitriy, who lives in NYC, told Joe a while back that he needed to be educated on good pizza. So while we were there, he took us to Grimaldi's Pizza, under the Brooklyn Bridge, where we waited in line outside for two hours in the cold. He's lucky it was good pizza. Very lucky.
    [​IMG]

    5) I did tell you that Joe likes to mess up my pictures, right?
    [​IMG]

    6) The four of us, after pizza
    [​IMG]

    7) Joe is a very happy man after eating the MEAL OF OUR LIVES at Morimoto
    [​IMG]

    8) Want more proof of the phenomenal-ness of our meal? Sky is smiling in this picture, even though his wallet is out, about to pay out the wazoo (TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!) for the preceeding 8 (was it 8?) courses of ecstacy.
    [​IMG]

    9) Next it was Bar hopping . . . er . . . uh . . . sampling the area watering holes? Eh, face it, we were bar hopping . . . starting in Greenwich Village, and ending at a Tiki Bar near our hotel in Brooklyn.
    That's just iced tea in my glass, I swear.
    [​IMG]

    10) Joe's still happy from Morimoto, I think.
    [​IMG]

    11) I'm pretty sure I was feelin' goooood at this point.
    [​IMG]

    12) Wake up you silly sleepy head! (I'm pretty sure Sky will kill me for posting this, but it's totally worth it! :p )
    [​IMG]

    13) Goo goo g'joob!
    [​IMG]

    14) Me!
    [​IMG]

    15) Taken only minutes after zombies ate his brains.
    [​IMG]


    16) New Years Day, waiting outside the Museum of Modern Art.
    [​IMG]

    17) You can't tell it from this picture, but we're standing in the middle of thousands of people in Times Square here, on New Year's Eve. This is probably my favorite picture of the whole week. Me and my two favorite people in the entire world. I don't know what life would be like without them.
    [​IMG]

    18) And then they just got creepy. Shortly after this picture was taken, they robbed me.
    [​IMG]

    19) Sky found a great hidden Korean Billiards place, and we went there after ringing in the New Year in Time Square.
    [​IMG]

    20) Mmmmm! Sake!
    [​IMG]

    21) Me and my best friend! :D
    [​IMG]

    22) I'm mad that this isn't sharper. It could have been a great picture! Even if it is obvious that we're both feelin' the sake at this point. :p
    [​IMG]

    23) After the billiards place, we went to the Town Tavern, a bar we'd found on our previous adventure in Greenwich Village. Um . . . yeah . . . Joe and Sky had to help me walk home after this.
    [​IMG]

    24) Saying goodbye to Sky at the Amtrak station the next day. I'm also suffering from my very first hangover EVER in this picture.

    Oh, and two more very poor quality pictures taken with mine and Sky's iPhones. I haven't edited them at all. They had to be included, because they make me laugh.

    25) It was so cold waiting for midnight, we were all VERY reluctant to take off our gloves for anything. Since the iPhone only responds to the touch of your skin, I resorted to texting and posting on facebook with my nose. I got quite good at it, too. And yes, I am wearing (sortof) Joe's flappy hat.
    Sky took this with his iPhone.
    [​IMG]

    26) After 7 hours of standing in one place in the freezing cold in Times Square, Joe and I were hungry, and wanting something on a stick. We were walking to the Korean Billiards place when Joe didn't notice that we were walking right past an 'on-a-stick' vendor. After I stopped him and pointed it out, he marched right up to the vendor, pointed, and said, "I'll have one of those on a stick, please!" :p

    Wow. Cool thread!
    I saw Corry's on Facebook before and became all wistful, thinking how much I miss the three of you here on TPF, and how much I miss to see "clarinetJWD"-pics here on TPF! Any of them. You have always been so much of an inspiration to me! Where others saw that a building had a ceiling (for example), "well, o-kay, a ceeeiling, don't they all have ceilings?" you saw the extra in the ceiling, where it was special, and you knew how to frame that (FOR example only). And now look at the composition of that Christmas-tree-skyscraper photo...! Are you surprised to hear I miss you? (I mean, didn't we also have a nice time back then in DC when we all met?)

    Great to see you back, to see that you had such a good time and sooo much fun!

    Great set of pics, everyone! (Well, Corry and Joe anyway. Sky hasn't posted yet .... [​IMG] )

    You've really got some excellent shots of each other (despite Joe's best efforts to act up in them). And I really like the 'Manhattan from the Bridge' shot (looks like it was taken from a high-up spot...from where did you take it?)

    Looks like you had a great, but cold, time in Times Square. I watched it on TV and looked for you but didn't see you (perhaps because of the robber masks).

    :blush: I'm so flattered.

    Thanks so much Corinna, it means a lot! I've actually been taking pictures fairly constantly, but never get around to editing them anymore, but I've set out to do a lot more this year...

    You messed up WAY more than that. I have a couple of hundred pictures, remember? This is just a teensy selection of them. I haven't even touched the pics from Baltimore yet.

    The way for the foot passengers who want to cross the bridge is a storey higher than the roads on either side. That's why when you want to cross the bridge leisurely (which you can only do while on foot), you are automatically this much higher than the cars.

    Hoping that this_link_will_work - this might show you what the bridge is like. (Sorry about the quality of the photo ... cough-cough, can't compete with Joe's photo, of course, but you might see what I mean).
