Just got in from Sarah’s party. It was a lot of fun. She’s got a lot of good friends.. She got good and sloshed, as one should do on their birthday, but somehow, I don’t think that she’ll be drinking all that much for a little while 🙂
I took her friend Sarah home after the party as she was kind of on the way… Short pitstop through Jersey, no biggie… Leaving her house I found myself on a road overlooking the manhattan skylike, and while the view wasn’t the best one I’ve seen, the Chrystler Building stuck up from between the buildings, so I decided to pull over and get a few shots of it. The 300mm lens did a nice job of zooming in, but I definitely think my next investment is going to be a 2X teleconverter. I would have liked to frame it in even closer.
Anyways, It’s a good thing that I stopped, because about 3 blocks from that point i heard a weird tone/ringing sound…. It was Sarah’s cellphone. She must have dropped it between the seat and the center console when she was shuffling around… If I hadn’t stopped I probably would have been in the Lincoln tunnel where I wouldn’t have heard the ring (unless there’s coverage there) and definitely would have been more of a pain in the ass to turn around. Fortunately, I was only a few blocks from her place, so I swung back and dropped off her stuff….
Here’s the picture that saved the day…
