Two days in New York

This past week I got a chance to tour Manhattan for two whole days.  (!!!!)  Hubby took me around town to celebrate my birthday (yay!) and then I showed our aunt around town another day.  It was such a nice treat to wear my "nice" clothes (aka non-mommy-stained-t-shirts) and see the city I love.

Here are some photos from my New York adventures:
Delicious breakfast at Cafe Lalo (famous from the movie "You've got mail.")

Sneakily taking a photo during a wedding photo shoot at Central Park's Bethesda Terrace

One of my travel companions

Fresh flowers at Union Square Farmers Market
Ethiopian food served at Massawa Ethiopian Restaurant

No idea where I shot these flowers, but I love them because they remind me of an old painting
Best. Popsicle. Ever.  (People's Pops on the High Line)  I left feeling inspired to re-try popsicle-making this summer
Beautiful mural seen on the High Line

Three Pie Face meat pies. Yurrrmmy.

  1. ooh did you film the video? how did you speed it up! so cool. the people look like puppets! amazing.

    1. yup! hubby filmed it with our camera. we put it on "diorama" mode and then recorded. somehow the camera taped everything in super speed. :) i especially like seeing everything in tiny tiny mode.

  2. You are so talented! I LOVE these pictures. The city endlessly fascinated me. And how did I miss your birthday?? Well I'll be fixing that soon :)

  3. hahaah Aww, you're picture taking skills and videography skills have inspired me to go back into catching wonderful, beautiful moments with a camera. Well, temporarily inspired me, since I don't have a camera of my own and my mom's camera that I tend to use, I don't know how to work the settings, so my pictures don't tend to come out the way I want them. I love capturing beauty and art. Can someone just hand me a camera where all the settings are set to where they are suppose to, so my pictures can come out awesome? The picture with the white flowers do look like an old painting. I'm glad you had tons of fun!

  4. Oh, btw, the wedding photo looks so professional! OMG Making sure that the bride is off to the right side of the picture fit the picture perfectly. My eyes were drawn to the whole picture, the exterior of the amazing architecture, the white light that took up half of the picture and then the bride. Exciting!

  5. Aw shucks, thanks guys. I have to give hubby credit because he got me a new lens for my birthday, so that's why the shots look better.


Thanks for your comment!
