NYC Snow Days

Well, the snow in NYC hasn't been much to write home about lately, but we had a few good snow weekends that mandated I jump out of bed early - I just can't resist seeing Central Park covered in a fresh snowfall. Plus, as an added bonus, when you go pre-9am, it's off leash time in the park. There's just no joy like the joy of puppies romping through snow. 

Here's a few quick snaps from the neighborhood!

Downtown NYC Meetup & Fuji X-T2 Test

Last Sunday night, while most of New York huddled inside avoiding the sudden, torrential rain, I venture out to a meetup hosted by my friend @Misshattan and the Downtown Alliance. What would make me go out in such conditions? Partly it was too see friends, and another part was field testing the new Fujifilm X-T2 I just acquired. Overall it was a great time exploring ships, taking the NYC Water Taxi out to the Statue of Liberty, taking photos in the rain, and wrapping it up with drinks and bites at the Pier A Harbor House.

By the end of the night, I was seriously impressed with the low light capabilities of the X-T2, not to mention the weather sealing. I had the optional battery grip on as well which provided the option of shooting on "boost mode", shooting at 11fps which came in handy when running through the rain! Thanks to the FujifilmX team for their generosity!

WTC Transportation Hub

Although I visited the new World Trade center "Oculus" a few months back, I didn't get a chance to edit a few photos till recently. There's always more photos to edit, more trips planned (I'm not complaining though!). Anyways, here's a quick glimpse at the stunning architecture.

Also, here's a "behind the scenes" shot of what it's ACTUALLY like in the age of Instagram.

All images shot with the Leica T and 23mm lens.
