New York, Part 2

On my second day in New York, after an early morning walk across the Brooklyn Bridge with my dad (something he’d never done despite growing up in and around New York), I met my friend Corey in Chinatown for an afternoon of cameras and pavement pounding and catching up.

A friend from Seoul, Corey is a recent transplant to Manhattan, so it was a pleasure to see the city through his relatively fresh new lens. I loaded the Nikon with a roll of Fuji Reala I had picked up in Okinawa, and we hit the streets for 50-something blocks of smack-talking and snapping.

And a special little P.S.  Last week this site received its 1000th comment since last April’s re-design. As a thank you for continuing to travel around this planet with me, I am doing a special give-away this week. I will post each day this week and choose a random commenter from each day. Each day’s winner will receive a print of their choosing, as well as some weird stuff from Korea. Deal?

And taking a cue from Mr. Ferry, I’d like to encourage those of you who read along in the shadows to say hello. You might even win free stuff! Here, I’ll help. What is the city/country you’d most like to visit one day? I’m curious to know.

Thank you so much for continuing to visit Little Miss Twig! You make each new place I go that much more interesting.

    Stephanie, those blue buildings are gorgeous! Can I just come out and ask for a print? Are you selling them?

    For your question, I always wanted to visit Buenos Aires, and I did just this month. I didn’t fall in love, like I expected to, and I think I want to go back to check it out again… maybe that means it’s gotten under my skin.

    Second love on the blue buildings.

    I’m totally here to win free stuff. :) Just kidding! I am always here! :)

    I want to go to New Zealand. I had a v. good friend in junior high who was an exchange student from NZ and I have a good friend now who is a Kiwi who was living in London for years and years and has suddenly moved home. When I went to Australia a few years ago we originally thought maybe we’d hit NZ too…but we didn’t and I have regretted it ever since!

    could eat all your new york photos up with a spoon. really, I could.

  4. jodi says:

    i am completely in love with your nyc shots. please come back so we can go on a photo walk together, okay?

    i have too many places that i want to go to narrow it down to just one. but my current top three are: paris, san francisco & thailand. (and i seriously cannot believe that i’ve never been to SF. craziness!)

    I’m in NYC in two weeks! Too bad our visits couldn’t have corresponded.
    I’m there on my honeymoon, with my new bride, also named Stephanie.
    (really.)

  6. Arliss says:

    …”corresponded”. Not sure if that’s the word I wanted to use. “Connected”, perhaps.
    As always, I blame iPhone spellcheck…

    What you ate: cumin-lamb hand pulled noodles. You can check out my review of Xi’an Famous Foods on my work site. The photos are less than ideal thanks to my iPhone. I recommend that everyone in NYC check it out.

    Hello Miss. Twig,

    I have been a follower for quite sometime. Coming to your blog and viewing your photos is a daily treat.

    I would love to go to Turkey. I am baking quite a bit of bread now and I know Turkey is as obsessed with bread as I am. All sorts of bread. Mmmm…
