hey there people,
after a good three month I finally managed to go through at least a few of my 6000+ vacation photos me and my girlfriend took in our vacation back in july/august.
and here you have the first selection I took and edited. these are not random photos as you might think initially. before going on the vacation I wanted to start some kind of photo project in those days we were away. so as I wasn’t sure how much time I was going to have and what exactly I could do any single day I just decided on taking these shots, well actually there should have been more of these, but I just forgot it at times, especially as we got to california where we did less walking and more driving then in new york city.
well our vacation started with us taking the train from cologne, where we live, to frankfurt to catch our plane to new york. we spend four days in new york walking around like maniacs, but enjoying ourselves a lot. it wasn’t the first time there for either of us, but we still did the whole nine tourist yards I guess. from NYC we flew to san diego as I wanted to check out comic con for the first time and see what all the fuzz is about 🙂 (well you might have guess till now that I am a major geek).
after san diego we were headed to los angeles which is one of the few cities in the world I would really like to move to. I just love it there. there we spent quite a few more days then in san diego and NYC so far and enjoyed it very much. after that we flew back to NYC for three more days and then back home.
yeah you ask yourselves why not fly back from los angeles and the next time I will give it more thought. initially I thought it would be good to break the flight time down, but with not too many days in between flights it just was more of a hassle then flying 12 hours straight and it was actually more flying… anyways. we enjoyed the whole trip a lot and can’t wait to get back at some point.
as for the photos I decided to put the d3 down where- and whenever I thought about it or thought it would be nice, throw on the 14-24mm lens and shoot a photo at 14mm blindly. don’t ask me why, because I have no clue :-), either way it is, even though not as complete as I wanted it a nice series of photos and I hope you’ll enjoy them as I do.
as for all the other photos we took, you have to be a bit more patient as its a lot of work and I don’t have to much sparetime at the moment.
have a great sunday evening or night depending on where you are!
