Since I recently got a new remote (MC-36) for my D300, I decided to play around with time lapse photography and video for the first time. I had to do a bit of reading & research first. My D300 can do time lapse photography but figured it would be better to use the remote. A good video tutorial can be found here. If you got the right software and camera, time lapse photography can be a lot of fun!
Saturday December 20th was the day to act like a tourist for me. I never really went down to the city to see the usual sights like Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center, Macy’s on 34th street or take a stroll through a snowy Central Park. Matt’s new company that he works for offered a round trip bus ticket for 10 bucks to go to the city for the day. Since it was so cheap, Matt and his wife Michelle, my girlfriend Kristen and I all decided to go down for the day for sight seeing, shopping and food.
Have you ever missed a city, country, or place just based on the time of year? That’s what’s happening to me right now. In 2005, I went over to London and in 2006, I went over to London and Edinburgh, Scotland. Both times were in early December. The weather was decent, better than NY this time of year and it didn’t rain that much. Well that can’t be said for Scotland but that’s to be expected with that country. But the last two years I’ve had this nostalgic depression and that I can’t go back to the UK anytime soon.
I haven’t been to Peekamoose Road & Rondout Reservoir in the Catskills in about 2 years. My older brother Jason took me there for the first time then and now I decided to show my girlfriend Kristen the waterfalls. The main waterfall on that road is amazing and really easy to get to. All you need to know is how to get there by car and you’re set.
Gaslight Anthem have been making some noise since their debut album ‘Sink or Swim.’ Now they have been attracting even more fans with their hot new release ‘The 59 Sound’ off Side One Dummy. I became a fan of the band with their EP release of ‘Senor and the Queen’ and I hadn’t seen them live until this show. I’ve heard great things about their live show and they certainly didn’t disappoint. If you like their new album, you have to make an effort to go out and see these guys perform!
