I was in D.C. to see one of my images displayed in the Smithsonian Castle last year and really enjoyed touring the galleries and driving around the Virginia countryside near my sister's place in Hamilton, VA. I just felt a bit rushed I guess.
I wanted to do a double-header trip to D.C. and N.Y.C. last year but the schedule wouldn't allow it and I didn't find a friend's place to stay at until it was too late.
This time, the stars aligned and although I really can't afford it... I'm going anyway. Haven't been to the "Big Apple" since way before digital photography. Now that I think about it, the last time I was in N.Y.C. was 13 years ago!
Will be staying with a friend and attempting to do this on a shoe-string, and getting my kicks from the beat of the street and the aroma of dirty-water dogs.
Flying out of Austin on August 26th for D.C. and then back from N.Y.C. on September 16th. What happens inbetween those dates is completely up to whichever way the wind blows and the will of the Great Spirit.
