I have been out of blogosphere for months and I am back. Many apologies to any regular readers I may have. Keeping up with the blogosphere have become difficult for me lately and I hope I will write more posts next year 2012, which is just around the corner, insyallah. Life is too short and here come New Year 2012 and good bye 2011.
For today post, I want to share some night photos of New York city. I remember it was difficult for me to take good night photos especially when trying to figure out the right setting of the shutter speed and f no. for night mode, things that not in my lists during a trip. I still have many photos of Rome to share but it has to wait.
New York brings back memory of winter and New Year. I went to visit New York on a study trip about two weeks before Christmas day. Many of my fellow coursemates went shopping for Christmas presents during the trip. The last day of the trip, my friends and I went to Macy Sore to shop, just few hours before we should be back at YMCA hotel to board a bus to take us to JFK Airport for our flight back to Glasgow that night. We had almost missed our bus when we were stuck in the train. The train stopped for more than 15 minutes before resuming back to normal to the next station, one more stop before our destination. We got off from the train, afraid it would stop again, ran for some blocks like mad people on New York streets that night, amidst the wailing police sirens to catch our bus. New York would not be New York without those sirens. For information, New York subway is one of the oldest and busiest rapid rail systems in the world. Finally, we reached the hotel just before the bus was about to leave. Whenever I watch the Amazing Race, it brings back those memories and I know how the contestants must have felt, the adrenaline rush and thrill.
I miss New York city and maybe I vist it again one day, insyallah. To everybody and all readers out there Happy New Year 2012 in Advance and may all you wishes come true.
