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!
