I just arrived home from a trip up to NYC today, and you can bet I took plenty photos of The Gates (somewhere around a total of 108 ). Some of you had mentioned that you'd like to see my photos when I got back, so there they are below. But first, here's a brief summary of my day: I got up early, took the 7:00 train from Philly to NYC, arrived somewhere around 9:00, waited around Penn Station for about an hour until the nearby B&H superstore opened at 10:00. I went in, got all my supplies I needed to get some good shots for the day -- basically a cheap monopod (so I could confidently use my 200mm zoom lens on my K1000) and a few rolls of film. And I must say, on a side note, that store sure was an experience! They have different stations for everything; you go to one counter, tell them what you want, they print out a slip of paper that you take to the payment desk, pay for your stuff, get another slip of paper and head to the merchandise pickup desk and get your stuff. It was very crowded, even right after they opened their doors (there was a line outside when I got there), but very efficient. Quite interesting. So after that, I walked down to Central Park and took plenty of photos. Then had lunch around 1:00 or 2:00, made a trip to the Guggenhiem Museum (which was actually kind of disappointing IMHO), and headed back into Central Park to check it out farther north than I was previously. Took more photos, got tired, walked all the way back to Penn Station, and got on the 6:00 train back home. So... I took pictures using my 3 different cameras: a Sony Cybershot PSC-D71 (basically a 3.2MP point-and-shoot), my Canon ELAN 7N with 50mm f1.8 prime, and my Pentax K1000 with some 80-200mm f2.0 zoom. Since I just got home, I have yet to get any of the film developed (which I'll do tomorrow), but I have managed to post my digital shots online. They're all unaltered, so they're nothing all that special -- mostly touristy shots. But there are a few nice ones in there. You can view them here: http://homepage.mac.com/skyboy/PhotoAlbum7.html And I'll of course post the good film shots when I have a chance to get them developed and scanned, so check back later for updates.
