DLWS…Joe’s New York Day Three

Our final DLWS event for 2009 has flown by. What a great way to end the year…in NYC with Joe picking the locations and were they ever great locations…

Times Square is filled with interesting people. I saw a wonderful gentleman with his Leica that I wanted to photograph so, I simply walked up to him and asked to take his portrait and he graciously said yes.

of course, a visit to Times Square wouldn’t be complete without the Naked Cowboy…

DLWS…Joe’s New York Day One

Wow, what a day! That Joe knows New York like no one else and he was great to share it with our DLWS group. In the morning we visited Central Park…

After a short break where we went on a shopping trip at Adorama we were back out at it beginning with China Town, visiting Ladder 6 which is a great group of firefighters who graciously opened their station to us for awhile and even posed for a few photos…

We finally ended up on the Brooklyn Bridge for sunset where Joe had a treat and arranged for a ballerina to pose for the group. While she was taking a break I noticed her on pointe and had to photograph her feet…
