End of Summer in New York City | Family Sunday at the Central Park Zoo & Roosevelt Island

Travel

Fall weather is arriving and the temperature up here in New York is just amazing right now! Friday I was down in Atlanta shooting a beautiful wedding at Jaffari Center, pouring rain all day outside on Friday and raining all day Saturday for my flight back home to New York. Saturday afternoon and Sunday? Amazing 75 degree Fall weather – while it is pouring rain in Atlanta. Ah, the difference of a thousand miles :). We decided to take advantage of the great weather, and the fact that I was only gone for 1 day this weekend for the wedding so I was home on Sunday, to head into New York City with Miles and take him to the Central Park Zoo and Roosevelt Island.

Ok this isn’t either of those places, our friend Linda has a pretty sweet penthouse apartment in Midtown that we checked out earlier in the week (sorry was still in the camera so became part of this batch of photos).

Central Park Zoo on Sunday! We checked out the seal show at the beginning which was pretty neat, they can really catch some air!

Bird bird bird, bird is the word! Not a ton of photos because we were running after Miles the entire time.

After checking out the Central Park Zoo I thought it would be fun to show Betty and Miles Roosevelt Island, and I knew Miles would think the Roosevelt Island Tram would be a ride itself!

The UN General Assembly was going on so their were helicopters and armed Coast Guard boats up and down the East River, not a ferry tour boat to be seen!

Four Freedoms Park would be a great engagement or wedding photo shoot location! The leaves were just starting to turn ever so slightly to Fall colors.

And that was our Sunday! We had a great day yesterday running around, grabbing lunch at Xi’an Famous Foods, coffee at Cafe Grumpy, and dinner at a pizza place for a slice of New York City :).

Travel | Tokyo, Japan Day 2 – Ueno, Asakusa, Harajuku, Shinjuku, Meiji Jingu
Day 2 in Japan was a little less crazy than day 1, I wasn't quite as hardcore about shooting time-lapse every second of the day so I slowed down and enjoyed things a bit more =). That said, I still covered quite a bit of ground after checking out of Kimi Ryokan. Also, I couldn't stay out as late as the night before because I needed to get back from wherever I was to Ikebukuro to pick up luggage from the ryokan, and then head out towards Saitama to meet up with Tomomi when she arrived. A little bit of crazy coordination that somehow worked out beautifully! Read on for the crazy adventures of Zac in Tokyo, day 2! And follow the rest of the seri ...

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 9 | Wuyi Hiking Tea & Zhang Yimou’s Impression Dahongpao
Day 9 of our Summer trip to China saw yet another blazing hot Summer day, and more hiking in the mountains of the Wuyi area for us! We took a car in the morning to a more remote corner of Wuyi to hike this huuuuge waterfall area. On the bright side we took a little tram up to the peak and only had to hike down, but it was still a long day of walking in the mountains. However we were treated to pretty spectacular nature views which was much less crowded than the easier to access areas of Wuyi. Well, it was still crowded, this is China of course, but still quieter than other areas of China! All photos taken with the Sony A7ii mirrorless camera ...
