Return to Top of the Rock

Over 10 years ago, I visited Rockefeller Center’s Top of the Rock Observatory. That was also during my pre-DSLR days, and I was using a point and shoot camera to grab some shots.

When I finally purchased a DSLR, I knew I wanted to go back but the opportunity just didn’t line up with certain plans and bad weather. I’ve had a DSLR for almost 6 years now, and at last I made it to Top of the Rock!

I went up during sunset and although a little crowded, I really enjoyed the views and grabbed plenty of photos. It’s definitely one of the best views of the city. I used my wide angle lens and a telephoto to grab a variety of shots. Enjoy!

A Weekend in Boston

This past weekend I visited Boston for the first time! I was really excited to explore and check out a new city.

I had my camera with me most of the time but Saturday’s weather was snowy and rainy, so Sunday is when I took all of my photos while walking around the city. Besides checking out Quincy Market, Little Italy and other areas downtown I also visited the New England Aquarium and Harpoon Brewery. Of course plenty of seafood was consumed, including an incredible New England clam chowder.

Boston was a great weekend getaway and I look forward to visiting more cities on these mini-trips in the future. Enjoy the photos and have a good week everyone!
