New York City is somewhere that I was always reluctant to return to after my first trip there exactly 11 years ago. I’m not entirely sure why that was, but any reservations I had were entirely unfounded, as my recent trip there with my friend Lisa proved to be another amazing vacation for both of us. It was for the occasion of Lisa’s birthday, and we had entirely too much fun! And not least because my New Yorker friends, Gene and Ralph, took such amazing care of us during our brief stay.Gene had been so typically considerate in providing us with passes to museums and the botanical gardens, the latter of which we didn’t have time to see. And Ralph, a New York detective, chauffeured us around like a police escort in his unmarked squad car, clearing traffic with a combination of sirens and microphone! Both joined us for dinners, the most delicious of which was a Korean restaurant on 34th Street (also known as Korea Street), a first for both Lise and myself. We cannot thank Gene and Ralph enough for their kindness.

AW -- This is a classy profile of NYC, my friend. I am very glad you had the chance to visit and explore during your stay. I have to admit, the last photo of the appetizing breakfast is making me quite hungry. These are wonderful photographs. Your capture of the Iranian dancer from the parade is one of my favorites, in fact. I did laugh when I saw the lion with its tongue sticking out at you (quite a reception, hahaha). Marvelous images, as always. I look forward to photographing London with you in June! Take care!

TIA
