New York Minute

After how many months of talking about buying a camera, Dear Hubby finally bought the D80 of his dreams! Yeah, I convinced him that he has to stop talking and start doing! Now that he spent so much money, shopping for me is justified! Hehehe!

Anyway, I just wanted to share with you some photos taken by my budding photographer...




Ooh, and guess who we saw live at Union Square Greenmarket! Joseph Ades, aka Carrot Man/ Mr. Peeler Man/The Gentleman Grafter! He's a New York City institution who was featured by The Sartorialist and by Vanity Fair (I'm talking five page spread here)! My first brush with a New York City "celebrity" woohoo!




Yes, Mr. Ades sells peelers wearing custom made suits, and with a British accent too! But this guy has no stiff upper lip that's for sure! A crowd quickly gathered around him and I have to admit, I've never been this entertained watching someone sell peelers on the street!

Now that Mr. Sartorialist is busy shooting abroad, I would suggest that he hurry back home. My DH said he'll be out shooting every weekend around the city. Looks like DH is out to claim TS' throne! Hehehe!

oh we have the same camera but he is way, way better at this that I am. I am still learning my way around it. I really enjoyed taking "action" photos of the NY taxis. Times Square I think is one of the best places to take photos of taxis. I guess you know which of Harvey's photos I am fond of =)

Love Harvey's photos, what camera does he use? And Joseph Ades is so adorable, I love cute old grandpa types (reminds me of my angkong, who loved wearing suits too).

Hehehe! Thanks raissa! Times Square is actually our next target! He said nga we should go around 3 am, para less people! Hahaha!

Thanks Pam! It's a Nikon D80. Cute ni Mr. Ades no? Makes me really want to buy a peeler from him! Next time nga I'll buy! Hehehe! My grandpa is like your angkong too! Mine even wore fedoras and walked with a cane, pang style lang! Heehee! I think I got the love for dressing up gene from him! =)

haha I think 3AM is a good time because when we were there there were still a lot of people even at 1 AM. But then that was around summer and during Fashion week so there were really a lot of people around.
