PHOTOS: Latest from iPhone

I got the latest bunch of photos I’ve taken with my iPhone and put them here as I haven’t used my Canon for anything since my excursion with Larry last week.

So what do we have in this batch?

First, there is a pic of Larry from when we went out to dinner this past Friday and also when I took a pic when we were down in the Grand Central subway station for the 6.

And second, some pics from the Lincoln Center when Shelly and I went there to see Puccini’s Tosca performed in concert with the New York Philharmonic. Yep, we’re a couple of culture hounds.

That's better, although I should probably composite the two of these so both of our smile faces are in one pic

PHOTOS: Jeff’s Birthday in CS / Brooklyn Bridge w/ Larry

Here’s where I am putting all my photos still although my main journal stuff will be found on my Livejournal blog page. Highlights from here will be put there.

I have a few weeks worth of photos to put up!

First up on the agenda, my trip back to Colorado Springs to help celebrate Jeff’s 30th Birthday party. What a great time that was, from flying out there on Friday and having a get-together that evening at Susan’s with everyone to the next day on Saturday where we had an all-day fun fest. It started out with the bike ride down Pike’s Peak (the same thing I did with my Dad in June 2007 (scroll to the bottom of the page) ) wtih a good group of folks to then strolling around Territory Days and finally the Disco Down party in the evening. Everyone committed very well to the party theme and had a discolicious time. Yours truly was a very convincing Construction Worker. Just sayin’. The next day I hung out with Jeff and Susan, re-doing some of the things that I used to always do back then, hitting up Old Chicago’s, Best Buy, and then catching a movie (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls). Ah, the good ol’ days! And then the next morning, a quick breakfast and then it was back to the East Coast – and amazingly, all my flights went as scheduled. I’m sure that means that all my future flights are going to be utter disasters!

Anyways, here are MY pics from the Colorado Springs weekend back from the weekend of May 24 – there are literally a ton more pics but seriously, I don’t have the patience to put them all up. I think they’re all on another website whose link I have misplaced….but there’s a TON more. Like I said: My patience is not THAT extensive! 🙂

May 23, 2008 – Jeff Turns 30 in Colorado Springs!  BBQ at Susan’s!

So the next batch of photos is from this past week – the first two below are for the fans o’ Arielle – but the rest are of my trip out with Larry to go do some touristy stuff. We ended up heading out to Brooklyn to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, which is one of those things I’ve definitely wanted to do since coming to NY. Of course we decided to do this when a ridiculous heat wave came to the East Coast, but c’est la vie. We subway’d it to Brooklyn first, as I really didn’t want to walk the bridge back and forth, which was a good idea, all agreed. But before leaving Brooklyn, it was recommended to go to this famous Grimaldi’s Pizza place, and that we did…. and waited in the nice half-hour line outside just to get inside. But it was actually worth the wait, as the pizza was amazing. Having refueled, we explored a little bit of the Brooklyn side of the East River before crossing – and taking some pics of the great view. There’s also this cool thing called the Telectroscope, which looks like something out of the 20,000 Leagues under the Sea set (aka Steam Punk style). You go up to the viewing panel and look into it and what you see is a view of people staring back at you from London in front of the Tower Bridge. And what they must see is us in front of the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s really cool. Here’s a ‘site’ about it:Telectroscope. We then found our way to the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian level and began the crossing. It’s a great experience and amazing view to undertake. You can see the Statue of Liberty, Downtown, Midtown, the Manhattan Bridge… it’s all pretty amazing. And this was something that Larry hadn’t ever done before too, which is surprising but maybe not so much, as I bet a lot of native NYers probably haven’t bothered with this trek either. Anyways, it was a cool experience with lots of pics taken, as seen below. We then spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around Chinatown and SoHo – and I contained myself from spending lots of money, which is very possible down there. We also went to the Apple Store, where I strangley now want to get a MacBook. Those things are slick!
