It’s been a week since I was out enjoying the waves and the sun and I haven’t been able to adjust back to normalcy. Having said that, it pains me to look at my vacation photos since I wished I was still there. I did happen to open up Lightroom though and I just so happen to close it at one particular sunrise session I did. One of the shots below, which I am not too crazy on, but I am sharing with y’all anyway. More from this set to come soon!
Pork steam buns from Ippudo – NYC
In short, EPIC. I seriously do not have the expanded vocabulary to even come up with an adjective to describe on how good this is. All i have to say is if you are ever in NYC, you must give it a go. Oh, and their Ramen’s are also EPIC.
Chocolate Covered Onion
This is out there, and yes, the thought of onions and chocolate is not quite appealing, my buddy and I had to try this. It was very dissapointing. The chocolate crumbled off when you took a bite, and the skin was still on. I think if they used smaller onions where you can just pop it in your mouth whole would’ve worked better.
This shot was also included in Womensday.com’s online article about wierd chocolate covered foods. I think if it had bacon, it would be better.
Best way I can describe this is, if you bit an onion, and took a bite out of a Hershey chocolate bar.
This is also one of my most viewed shots on Flickr, and it’s gotten a lot ‘ew’ comments when I show them the photo.
This was taken during Run-A-Muck back in 2010. It was a fun event, and I should seek one out and shoot one again.
These were some of the participants taking a shower after their run.
Shot during last years New York City Comic Con (yeah, LAST YEAR, I missed this years due to procrastination and amnesia), I saw her while on my way out for a quick break. I forget which character she was from, but she had different coloured contact lenses for each eyes, and it just look awesome. Had to get a close up.
Disney Marathoners pounding away the miles at a desserted Walt Disney World. I spot them as we speed by in the monorail. A quick but difficult shot, hardly any light, lots of movement, but I managed to keep it steady enough to make the shot half intesting. This is merely the beginning of their journey, as well as mine.
Capping off our epic dinner at Morimoto’s was this epic dessert. At the time I was already in a food coma-bliss, and I honestly don’t remember the details of this delicious delicacy aside from the fact that it is epic.
Shot during my first month of owning the D700, and well, at a time where my hours were cut to 4 day’s every other week , hence giving me the opportunity to go out and shoot. I mostly ended up NY’s Central Park.
This particular one, I happen to catch a man preparing to play his portable piano. It wasn’t a keyboard, bit it was some sort of piano. I thought it would be a great shot to catch his silhouette, and use the rest of the park outside the arches as the backdrop. I don’t know, maybe now I might do it a little different.
Quite surprised I was able to hand hold this and get a fairly sharp shot.
it’s my old VW Rabbit’s dash, and I revved up the engine on the end of the exposure to get that trail on the tachometer needle.
One of my early shots using my then brand new Nikon D700.
