Long time No See

So I basically have not posted on this blog since the summer and so much has happened since. Most importantly I would say is the arrival of my nephew ME J. Of course I have been taking photos since he was born so here are a few to catch you up...(ok just to humor me pretend you care)

Spring like weekend in NYC

This weekend in NYC the weather was really great, hopefully a hint of the spring to come. So Melvin and I belted up our cameras and explored some new areas of the city we haven't really checked out...First stop was Roosevelt Island where we walked along the East River and took the Tram into Manhattan. We walked along the East side before heading downtown for a play my friend Katy was working on called "The Seven" . Heres how that went (more can be seen at my and Melvin's flickr sites)

Astoria: Part I- The Park

One of my favorite places to go in Astoria is down to Astoria Park. You can walk along the water and catch a glimpse of the Triboro Bridge or the Hells Gate Bridge. There's a track to run on or if you prefer a more aquatic way of getting around theres always the public pool. Here is just a taste of the many shots I have of or in Astoria Park.....
