Not a Photographer

I have posted most of my photos from NYC on flickr, I have a few more to post, but not many more. I am really disappointed with the pictures that I took. I was too busy socializing (BEER PONG!!) and lost sight of my goal to dedicate at least one day to photograph the city.
I did get a few shots that I love, but my absolute favorite is one that I didn’t take.
Quite possibly my favorite person in the world (or at least on the internet)
Meeting Rich was most definitely the highlight of my trip, he’s seriously THAT awesome.
Here are a few shots that I took, sadly, these are as good as they get.
On the streets of NYC
Spring in The City
Panning Taxis. (You can see the rest of the photos HERE)

    I love the newstand photo…oh! and the fire-escape one too…OooH! I love the taxi one, that ones my FAV!
    You’re a kick ass photographer!
    I have to admit I don’t know who Rich is. But I’m going over to his blog RIGHT NOW.

    I think those are pretty damn good. If you printed off the taxi one as a postcard and mailed it all over, I don’t think anyone could tell you took it instead of buying it, which to me is the hallmark of a great city picture.
    And you look great and your shirt is waaaaay cute.

    Y, those pictures are fantastic!
    Congratulations on meeting Rich. I feel like you just won the lottery and I should pretend to be a long lost relative and see what I can mooch off of you. (Did you pick up his used napkin? I’d like that.)

    Holy crap. Holy, holy CRAP.
    I’m so jealous, I don’t know if I can recover from this today. How cute is he? And funny? And just FUN in general? What did you guys talk about? Spill it, sista.

    The photos you took are indeed fabulous. However, the best is certainly the one you didn’t take. Because you look so BEAUTIFUL!! I want you to get this pic out whenever the hash is making you feel gross. That is an order missy.

    Y, Those pictures are awesome. I love the taxis photo where the background is blurred and full of lights and the cab is so in focus. Aside from the two others you put up on your site, I also really love the photo of the pretzel vendor on flickr. There’s something mystical about it – the face in the box with the hazy heat… Really neat stuff!
    And you look fantastic! It looks like you were having a great time.

    You look fabulous! It’s so good to see a picture of you looking Happy! And I love your photos. You’ve got some real talent there. You should think about entering some photo contests and submitting to magazines. I think you really have what it takes.

    I am so jealous! Rich is totally my internet crush.
    Just don’t tell my boyfriend. Or his.
    Congrats on meeting him though! Good things happen to good people ;)

    It’s not quantity, but quality, and you nailed it. These are some fab pictures, Y. I’m glad you had such a good trip. Ditto to others who say you look great here. I’m also digging the shirt.

    (((((Y)))))) I had to delurk to say two things
    A. You look so beautiful and happy in your new clothes. Buy lots more new clothes because you look so great.
    B. You look beautiful… because I didn’t say it enough in A ha ha

    You got some great shots of NYC. Living so close to the City, you inevitably become immune to it. It’s nice to see it through the eye of someone who hasn’t become blind to the hustle and bustle.

    I think I just fell in love with NYC again through your pics. When we get married, want to shoot our wedding? Oh wait, but then who would do Jesse’s Girl drunken into the mike between courses?

    I didn’t want to comment this in your Flickr stream but I really do love the shot (and processing) that you took of me. But I suppose it was easy since I’m just so damn hot.
    Now, why is it not July yet? Explain this to me.

    I LOVE the brick building with the flowering tree! That would look so cool blown up in a sleek frame in my living room!

    Honestly, that picture of the flowers against that red building is amazing. What kind of camera do you use? I like to take pictures too but don’t want to waste money on a camera that I don’t like. My in laws bought one for like 500.00 ( a deal ) and HATE it. Its not an SLR, but does take pretty ok pics. But I want SLR because of the move factor on my kiddos…… anyway, I just wanted to say your pictures are amazing.
