Thank you. It wasn't my camera's fault. I was shaking it all around while power-walking and trying to "snap as I went," and those were the results. I was worried I'd have been stampeded otherwise if I tried to stop! LOL!

Also, I can recall someone upthread had asked about what camera I used. I only use a cheap Kodak EasyShare digital camera that my parents bought for me as my Christmas gift back in 2005 (I think). My more well-to-do friends with minuscule and very high-tech devices laugh at me, but it's served me well for the many thousands of images I've taken thus far in all of my photo tours (and will resume in earnest in 2009 as I try to find something to make me happy in life again).

It's funny, I live relatively close to the city and rarely go there. I guess since I could hop on the train and go out there anytime, I don't make it a point to do so. Perhaps I should start making it a point to go.

Sometimes the inexpensive cameras are better than the expensive ones. I use a Kodak digital and I find it a lot easer to cary and use--no changing lens, buying film. etc.

But you get virtually no control over the camera...

Thanks for sharing. The pictures are great! I'm glad to got to see New York City. It is quite a place. I live on Long Island and haven't gotten a chance to go see the tree in many many years. I'm hoping while my husband is on vacation the week after Christmas, we will go on a date to the City. I need to find a babysitter and we are off.

My husband and I drove around once - back and forth thru NY and NJ. I live in NEPA but have to commute daily to NYC - to work - and it feels like I live there. Needless to say the commute is very tiring....and can be obnoxious at times. But these are nice pictures.

Take the Metro North train on an off-peak hour and you will enjoy a quiet ride. Grab a cup of coffee at Penn Station (connecting train from Secaucus), get to NY in about two hours and walk about Midtown. Get to go with people who know how to get to the best spots, to sample the local fare. I go to the NYPL during lunch hour sometimes and get a book to read (have my own library card), or a DVD to view on the train on the way home (off-peak hours) for a nice ride home and a slice of NY pizza. Gotta love it!

I enjoyed your pics as I am an x-NYC girl. I noticed your post and just joined a few minutes ago. I am glad to see that I finally got to view the Rockafeller Center Tree. U made our Christmas. Thank you. The best cannolis are on Bleecker Street closest to 6th Ave. The first place you would reach called Rocco's.. The pizza John's Pizza on 6th just west of Bleecker is the best. Just in case you visit back soon. We are going in February.. Any good eatz you would like to share? Merry Christmas
