2015 Chinese New Year Parade Chinatown NYC with the Sony A7R

Life Travel

Yesterday was the annual Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown in New York City, so we decided to grab Miles and head over to check it out! Even though Chinese New Year itself fell earlier in the week, the parades are on the weekend of course and Sunday was the 2015 parade date. Luckily the weather up here in New York totally cooperated after a little snow and freezing rain on Saturday when the Flushing CNY parade was happening, the Sunday festivities in NYC’s Chinatown saw (relatively) warm temperatures in the 40s – a perfect weekend day in the city! I had my trusty Sony A7R with me, and our little spot we staked out towards the end of the route was perfect, also because it was near the playground in Sara D. Roosevelt Park so Miles could escape to play a bit while we waited for the start!

I’ve been a little behind on posting new wedding photography photos to the blog, but you can head over to the facebook fan page to see last weekend’s Pakistani Indian wedding in Atlanta, and this coming weekend I am heading down to Savannah & Hilton Head Island for an awesome destination Hindu Indian wedding! Always super busy with South Asian weddings but here are some fun travel photos from life in New York City in the meantime =).

This is a bit of a personal post today, so sit back for a quick self-reflection and some of my favorite images from the California Coastline. I had been putting this off for some time but finally got around to going though our old photos from California 2009. After our trip in August 2009 we put a few photos up for sale as postcards on Zazzle, and surprisingly they started selling! I knew we wouldn't get rich quick off of Zazzle (I think we make $0.01 per sale) but it was a nice validation that other people out there enjoyed our early photography as much as we enjoyed shooting it. While I think our editing techniques were okay back then, ...

While waiting for some wedding videos to render, I was going through folders on my desktop and found the "Oslo to Blog" folder from... April 2016. Sooooo yeah I've been meaning to share these photos for about a year now, and while I have some "free" time letting the computer do it's thing with a wedding video, I might as well throw together this quick blog post! Two blog posts in a row that are not Indian weddings, craziness! At least the last blog post was a wedding. this one is just pure travel photos. Last year our "big trip" was heading over to Europe to see London, however I snuck out early thanks to Betty being consistently amazing, and ...
