After much discussion and attempts to remember anything, (just anything!)...I think we decided that this was our fourth year traveling with our friends to New York. What a fantastic tradition to have with such wonderful friends. I just love my friend Kim, who I met
25 many years ago in college. Thankfully, I also like her husband, and I think my hubby and her hubby have formed a slight bromance, too (phew, cause even if they didn't like each other, I think we would go anyway).
This trip was a little different than past trips because I did NOT BRING MY BIG CAMERA. Now, don't get me wrong, you must realize how much I love my camera, and how much I love to take pictures. It almost pains me not to have it. But for this trip? ...let's be honest, I felt some amount of relief! Hurray! Freedom! Freedom from feeling the pressure to take a picture of something I didn't want to miss! Freedom from carrying that bag around...should I bring just one lens? 2? How about my flash? Tripod? (nah, just kidding) So, being a photographer through and through, I did get some pictures with this handy little application on my iPhone called Instagram. If you haven't used this cool and free app, you must get it. Not only can you share the pictures with your "friends/followers", you can also apply really cool filters to transform the look and feel of your pics. Now, I am not a spokesperson for Instagram, but I will certainly endorse something that I like.
So, these photos were taken with my phone! Quick and easy. Oh, and if you were wondering about that multitude of "santas" outside that bar photo? You can read about that here. What a hoot!
We did some walking, eating, shopping, tooled around Rockefeller Center, eating and well, some more eating. We had a great time, I look forward to many more trips with them!
