TBT: New York | June 2001

With my usual flair for being late to all internet trends, here is my first Throwback Thursday post (apparently it’s a thing): a trip to New York in June 2001. It was our first proper trip as a couple after college/university. And also my first trip after getting a digital camera — the mighty 3-megapixel HP Photosmart 315! Unfortunately, any skills gained during my 5 years of using a Canon film SLR (in high school and college) had deserted me in the intervening time and I was pretty much a beginner in photography. Any half-decent pictures from the trip were the result of pure dumb luck…

We walked the streets, visited museums, went to the top of skyscrapers, walked along the waterfront. We took a sunset cruise around Manhattan, visited Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. We relaxed in Central Park, went to a show, and ate at some fantastic places. The only pity is that we never went back (except for a couple of quick work trips).

No trip to NYC would be complete without a trip to the top of the Empire State Building
