I absolutely love the city. I love the sounds, the smells and the sights. I feel at home in NYC. I embrace the diversity and the culture. I feel comfortable as odd as that may sound. There are people having intellectual conversations. There are coffee houses and delis where couples sit in the window and appear to be chatting away. There are well dressed people. I know there is more to the city than this description; however, I crave a setting like New York every now and then. Anyway, the city was miserable today as far as weather, but I still loved every second. I bought....drum roll please....a macro lens that is also a great portrait lens! Thank you for your opinions on the matter. I think I will get more use out of the macro/portrait than I will with a wide angle..at this time. That will be my next lens! Well it is 11:4o here and I made another post by just a slim margin! Up at 4:30am..been a great, but long day!
