I've only been in to "the city" once since we moved here a month ago, and that's quite fine with me. Manhattan is a madhouse, and I find that gazing at it across the Hudson River is far more marvelous than actually being there.
I've made a great friend too, who as luck may have it is from Texas. She is a professional photographer in town, and in exchange for my studio managment and editting help, she and her partner let me use their gear, work with me on special photography projects of my own, and let me attend the photography classes that they teach.
I am continuing to knit on the camouflage blanket for my nephew. It's 400 stitches across, and I plan to make it 400 rows long as well. At roughly 9-12 minutes per row, I finally reached 1/8th of the way through after around 6 hours of knitting.
Haydn and Dietrie are enjoying their newfound modeling gigs in my photography practicing. Malaney is also, but she can't sit still long enough for me to get one that isn't blurry, so stay tuned for her picture.
Here are a couple of pictures that I took tonight in the park that protrudes from Hoboken into the Hudson River and is about a football field in size.
This is the view of Manhattan from the other end of the park - it's actually a view of midtown, where Times Square and my husband's office are located. Of couse, the Empire State Building is the most prominent building in the photo.
