looking up in nyc {& other photo snippets}

June 15, 2013

A couple of weeks ago the family trotted off to NYC for a couple days to see my husband’s sisters and to watch one of them graduate from NYU…HUGE!  I am finally sharing some of the photos I took while there.  Many were taken with my phone…isn’t it great how convenient taking pictures has become?

Between Instagram and the A Beautiful Mess App, I am always shooting/quick editing pictures with my iPhone.  It has become an obsession…


My sister-in-law’s graduation dinner was at the Boathouse in Central Park…very pretty!  And delicious!


I trekked down the street to get some cupcakes from Crumbs.  They had a rainbow cookie cupcake, and since rainbow cookies are my husbands all time favorite cookie I had to get one.  Moira picked mint-chocolate-chip.  I picked chocolate banana because I panicked at decision time.  I was not disappointed!

NYU graduation ceremony at Yankee Stadium…


Moira took the one of the birds.  She was obsessed with the pigeons…everywhere.  So when I gave her free reign of the camera, she took about a dozen of the birds.


This one outside McSorley’s was my favorite.  I pretty much told everyone to give me their best “Irish Thug” look and this is what I got.


Carriage ride through Central Park…


One of the themes (besides kids) I was attracted to when taking my pictures was the buildings, specifically the tops of buildings.  Among all of the glass and soaring skyscrapers, NYC has these smaller-but-probably-huge-in-their-time buildings with beautiful details along the top of the building.  I couldn’t help but look up.  It was a chance for me to practice my (very) amateur photog skills.

And then this one  because the curly-haired cherub reminded me of Ronan…


We are looking forward to going back soon to take in more sights, eats, drinks, and family time!
