This week, I wanted to show a few photos from our New York City photoshoot that Pam, Becky, Gordon, and I were able to go on. We had a lot to do and very little time to do it in. Pam, Gordon, and I were directing the photographer. . .Pam more than Gordon and me, since her shots involved models. Gordon and I took cameras to shoot when we were not directing. . .we had a long list of things we needed to shoot. Becky and her sister, Susan (when she could join us) were our NYC guides!
When I say we had a lot to shoot, we had a lot! Our first day, we covered a lot of ground! We started in Times Square, then headed to Central Park (got caught in a downpour!), then hit the Central Park Zoo, and finally ended at Yankee Stadium (they actually were playing that night but we were unable to go!)
Our next day, we started off at the Statue of Liberty. We could only have about 10 people in our group. . .it had something to do with our shooting permit on the island. Well, we had 11! So, I took off from the group and was just a normal tourist, taking photos of Lady Liberty. While the group was off getting shots, I headed back to Battery Park to photograph the many statues/memorials for my VBX leader pack and then decided to hop the subway to Ground Zero (I had never been there before). That was an experience! I’m glad I was able to do that!
After the group returned, we headed to Brooklyn. . .the DUMBO area. Does anyone know what DUMBO stands for? Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass!
The whole trip was an exciting experience! We got to see a lot of NYC in a short amount of time. Enjoy the photos!
