NYC – One

The pictures in this collection are in a folder called New York City. These pictures are from a trip I took with Jesse to visit my cousin Sarah and her beau Tim. They live in Manhattan. We made this trip in 2011 and I thought that I’d probably go out and visit every couple of years. I haven’t been back since, and that is really pathetic.

There are also pictures in this collection I took with a pinhole camera.

MORE RANDOM NEW YORK CITY – NEAR GROUND ZERO

The next time we take a stroll down memory lane, that memory lane will still be in New York City.

March Misc.

As I’ve indicated before, the 2011 folders are a disaster. These images cover most of the March 2011 folders. These are mostly pictures that were taken for the RANDOM WEEKLY PHOTO EXPERIMENT (now called THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE), but a few were taken for a PERSONAL PHOTO PROJECT.

Back in May I went to see Evie perform during her piano recital. The recital was in Chocolaterie Stam in downtown Ames. I arrived early, so I wandered around downtown Ames and took a few photos that I’d like to share now:

I still really haven’t set 2020 photography goals for myself, besides make the blog more current. But one of them might be to do more street photography.

The End of Random NYC

This is the end of the random NYC images. Please shed no tears.

Some of the pictures are from the Brooklyn Bridge:

Next week’s random Wednesday will be pictures from Iowa State’s Spring Game.

More Random NYC – Liberty Island and Day 3

Here are some more random images from Day 3 and Liberty Island:



Sarah at Benny’s Burritos


We didn’t eat here, but this restaurant is famous for being in When Harry Met Sally.


The Staten Island Ferry


The girl who took this picture was overly impressed with my camera.

Next Wednesday will feature even more random New York City images.

More Random New York City – Near Ground Zero

Here are some random New York City images from the Second Day of the trip. These were taken at and around Ground Zero and at St. Paul’s Chapel, which is across the street from Ground Zero.

Regrettably, some of these pictures were taken through a window, leading to a regrettable reflection.

Even though I only recently started the tradition of posting movie reviews on Wednesdays, I’m already walking away from that tradition. I want to keep this website about photography as much as possible, so I’m going to start posting my movie reviews on my collective blog:

Robot Monster Bros.

If you were to follow that link, you would not find any movie reviews. You will find an explanation of why I do my movie reviews the way I do. You will also find a posting the 10 Things I Learned in NYC. In the near future, I should have a review of Cedar Rapids up.

Wednesdays now will be more of a random photography day. This way I get more photography on the photography website and more writing on the writing website.

Here are some random pictures from my trip to New York City:
