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 :).

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!

New York City Christmas Even with this unseasonably warm Winter, it still looks like Christmas all around New York City! With the holiday displays in the windows and the lights installations around Manhattan, you can't help but feel the holiday magic (even if it's 60 degrees outside)! Being a Floridian at heart I think I'll take this warm weather, but I did wish we had a White Christmas this year for Miles to see =). All photos taken here with the Sony A7ii and Zeiss 16-35mm f/4 OSS lens of course! Bryant Park's fountain has not frozen yet, and the Winter Village with ice skating is full of people for the holidays! ...

Personal | Recent Happenings With Miles! Day Out With Thomas 2013 & School Carnival
Just doing a quick post from what we've been up to lately - besides being up to our ears in weddings! Seriously, this Summer/Fall season has been I-N-S-A-N-E! Well I guess it's like this every year, as the end is finally in sight! December and January only have 2 weddings each month, it's not a month of 4 weddings with 3 of them being 3 or 4 day Indian Wedding =). A few weeks ago we took Miles to the Jungle Jam carnival at his preschool and then to the Day Out With Thomas event down in Cordele, GA! Even though we play with him all day around downtown here it's fun to get out once in a while too. You may have already seen these photos on Insta ...
