Ride Along on a Photographic Tour of New York City


I’m beginning to consider New York City my home away from home. It’s a four and a half hour ride from my place in New Hampshire, making it far enough for an impulsive weekend getaway but not so far that I have to fly. As many of you know, I hate to fly. No, I’m not scared of it. I’m bored. Bored, to tears, with:

  • Standing in line to check my luggage (It’s one suitcase. I pack light. Can’t I just sit on the sucker?)
  • Standing in line to be felt up (Look, TSA, some girls have to wear under-wire bras. Program that into your fancy metal detecting gizmo!)
  • Standing in line to board (Less talkin’, more walkin’, folks!)
  • Standing in line to sit (Really? I have to stand in line to sit?)
  • Sitting still (Me??? Cruel & inhumane treatment! I want my lawyer!)
  • Standing in line for the bathroom (One teensy bathroom? On a plane with this many women & children?? Drinking soda & wine??? )
  • Standing in line to get off the plane (Places to go! People to see! Bathrooms to find! Move it! Move it!)
  • And…say it with me…standing in line to get my luggage (It’s one suitcase! I pack light. Can’t I just sit on the sucker?)

I just want to GO. Now. So, hopping in the car with my coffee, setting the old iPod to shuffle and putting pavement under my wheels, quick-like, en route to the city is a dream.

I also dabble in photography. My hard drive is crammed with photos I’ve taken in my many day & weekend trips to NYC. Today I’d like to share a few with you. Hope you enjoy. (And look, no standing in line!)
