Manhattanhenge 2016 in Times Square, New York City


This year’s second Manhattanhenge took place last night, July 11th, and I was actually in town not traveling for a wedding like the first time it happened this year! I happened to also have a quick meeting with a bride in New York City yesterday for her upcoming destination Indian wedding, so it worked out perfectly to hang around NYC for a few extra hours to catch the sunset!

Manhattanhenge 2016 Times Square NYC

With the sunset only lasting a few minutes, I didn’t have enough time to walk to a second location in the city like 34th street, which also seemed like it would produce a pretty cool photo based on some quick location scouting earlier in the day due to it being a large two-way street. I settled for an iconic location like Times Square and was not disappointed to share 20 minutes of New York City bliss with the 500 or so other New Yorkers snapchatting, instagramming, and facebooking Manhattanhenge 2016.

Wat Florida Dhammaram Temple – A place for colors
After we fell in love with photography, we fell in love with colors. So looking for colors around us becomes part of our day to day task. Then when we heard about this Thai temple- Wat Florida Dhammaram, we had no hesitation to go there to search for colors. We ran into the monk when we just parked our car. We said Hi and carefully asked for permission to take photos inside the temple. Very generously, he not only allowed us to take photos, but also modeled for us. (Well, we did not ask him to sign a release!!!) We were amazed by the color of the temple, and of course, Zac shot many HDR. We would recommend any photographers going there for ph ...
Personal | Daytrip to the Great Smoky Mountains with Jing & Ping
I've been pretty good about pumping out the wedding-related posts, and even recently doing a quick write-up of a new restaurant in Downtown Altanta. What I have not done recently, is shared any personal photos of just our normal life, which mostly revolves around Miles of course. Well, most days for us are really not that exciting with a schedule of waking up, taking Miles to the park and/or museum, while either Betty works on her dissertation or I edit wedding photos/videos. A couple of weeks ago when it was still relatively chilly out, we headed up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to take Betty's PhD classmate and visiting profess ...
Our First Trip Together
It is a make-up post for our first trip ever together. The saying is that if a couple can get along well in a trip, then they can get along well in their marriage. So we were nervous, but of course, we got along super well. Woman is always the one deciding the direction, so I decided going to Savannah, GA for a short road trip.  I always saw introduction in TV and was intrigued to see this old town. On the way to Savannah, we also stopped by St. Augustine, FL, a beautiful harbor city by Florida east coast.
