Clydesdale, originally uploaded by Afulki.

I was at the Apple store on 5th Ave this morning, buying a new keyboard for the Mac (water, a 3 year old and electronics don't mix) when I noticed the new art display at the corner of 60th and 5th.

Christmas Lights

Christmas Lights, originally uploaded by Afulki.

Last night, I was walking down Broadway on my way to my first Christmas Party of the season. This caught my attention, I liked the lights on the trees (of course), but what really stood out was the smoke / steam lit up in the background.

This guy spotted me with the camera and wanted me to make his friend famous, his friend was shy, this gentleman was anything but. You got to love new yorkers.

New York Sunrise

New York Sunrise, originally uploaded by Afulki.

This one was taken just over a year ago (it feels much longer), its one of my personal favorites and the one I use as the backdrop of my business card. I was standing on the Manhattan side of the East River, outside the South Street Seaport.

Pepsi Cola

Sunday was a day of rest; rest being a relative term, as those of you with young children can testify, an energetic 3 year old allows little rest; so we went for a walk and of course the camera came too. Here is one of the pictures from the walk, with a little tweaking for interest.

Shakira and Eric - wedding at Top of the Rock

Though a small event, the wedding of Eric Edgington to Shakira Christopher was a high old time, literally. It was held on the observation deck at Top Of The Rock as the sun set.

Lighting was difficult in the extreme as the observation deck was surrounded by glass walls, using flash was mildly frustrating, but turned out well in the end.

Halloween in Sunnyside Gardens

October also brought Halloween to Sunnyside Gardens Park, a it was another beautiful if cold day and the costumes were out in force. Pirates and Jedi seemed to be the most popular, even some of the adults dressed up, some were even carrying light-sabers, I'm naming no names!

Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Festival

A public event was held in Sunnyside Gardens Park on October 13th 2007, which combined Oktoberfest and the pumpkin patch. There were games, stalls, arts, crafts, face painting and of course the pumpkin patch, where you could choose your own pumpkin then take it for painting. The adults were not left out, there was beer on tap and various food items to help soak up the beer.
