I love New York. My friends ask me why I go so much, but there’s something about the city where you can be so anonymous and free to be who are that I love so much. Every turn is something new and exciting to see and you can never be bored. There’s a million and one things to do in the city and even more to eat. Which is probably reason #2 why I love going. The food is the bommmmmmb.

Over the weekend, Andrew and I took a short trip to the city. It was cold but so awesome to see all the christmas decorations and lights. We put our name down for dinner at an Italian restaurant and had an hour to kill so we figured we’d walk to Rockafeller Center to check out the Christmas Tree. You know that pre-dinner walk so you can fit more food into your belly? Anyways… Holy cow going on a Saturday night is not a good idea. It was so crowded, you could barely move. So once we made our way out of the crowd we somehow found ourselves on this closed off street in front of the Radio City Music Hall. I have no idea how I was able to get no people in this shot but I did. If you look at either side of the sidewalks you can see some people walking by but it really doesn’t depict just how many people were actually there. I don’t know how to express just how many people were there and how amazed I am for not getting any of them in this image. LOL. *pats self on back*

My camera settings for this image F4.0 at 1/13th of a second at ISO 1250 with my Sony A7II and 16-35mm wide angle lens.

Theres nothing better than being in New York for the holidays. Yes, it was really cold but the lights, people, and christmas decorations made it hard to stay indoors. There were tons of people on the street, mostly tourists, but it was fun being amongst all the people.

We were there for one night for my boyfriend’s birthday. He wanted to go shopping and I wanted to go somewhere to take some new pics. I wish we were there a little longer to take some more NY pics but theres always next time 🙂

Here’s a pic from the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center) at sunset. Let me know what you think by commenting below.
