If you saw my last post, you know that I had the incredible opportunity to travel to New York City to meet up with some of the Monochromia photographers. While I’d never met any of these people in person, we’d been online friends for years.

I took the train from Washington, DC to Penn Station where I met Joe and Terry. After checking into our hotel, we walked right across the street to quench our travel thirst. How convenient!
Soon enough we were joined by Patti.
It was not long before the cameras came out, and we were hitting the streets.
Stacy, already in the city for a photography workshop, joined us next,
soon followed by Robyn who drove up from PA.
We visited Grand Central Station, the World Trade Center Memorial, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Central Park, and the Public Library.
We traveled by subway, taxi, and elevator (yes, there’s a story there), and by foot … many, many miles by foot!
We met great people, including Patti’s husband, Mark, and enjoyed good food and drink.
There are many stories to tell and photos to share.

For now though, I just have to express how fortunate I feel to have met so many great people, virtually and in person, through WP.
Please visit Monochromia to see the image of Joe that I shot when Patti captured this one of me. Thanks Patti!

More NYC photos soon!
The next two weeks will find me opening a new medical practice. Despite that, I hope to find time to visit all of you this coming weekend.
It looks like an awesome trip–what fun!
How fun! What hotel did you stay in? Sounds like you hit some of the most photogenic spots, glad you had a good time!
These images really illustrate what a great time we had in NYC on that beautiful October weekend Laurie 🙂 Do I look fat in these clothes ? LMAO But seriously the weather could not have been better, the endless elevator trips and subway blunders will be laughed at for years to come and the great conversation among friends, good food and drinks were spectacular. And we all have the images to remember. Wonderful post and images Laurie.
PS I just love the image of Terry’s socks 🙂
See spot on map. Get there.
Hats off to you for opening a new medical practice, Laurie. All the best with such a meaningful endeavor.
I’m going back to bed – exhausted!! 😀 Looking forward to a real time catch-up with (edited) highlights about ALL your news xoxo
What a fabulous post, Laurie! You are such a fabulous storyteller, both with your photography and written word. It’s so hard to believe it was just a week ago today that we began our whirlwind weekend. So much fun, so many wonderful memories. Loved the laughter, the stories, the walking, the bars, and above all, the friendship. Hope all goes smoothly with your opening. And, oh, by the way, loved that you got me studying that map 😂 Until next time …
What a wonderful opportunity to meet blogging friends on a photo shoot in New York! Colour me jealous!! Love the pictures. It looks like you all had a great time! 🙂
I thought I recognised a couple of those faces. How lucky you were.
Such fun! It looks like a happy, rowdy crew AND in one of the most exciting cities ever! Good luck with setting up the new practice–that sounds exciting, too (and congrats on beating Miami!)
Looks like a great trip with a great group.
Oh my, what fun Laurie! I am sure New York is still telling tales😉
That cigar! Great photo Laurie 🙂
This is so awesome!
What great fun you all must have had. I have a son very into photography as his father was. I point the camera and trust it catches something. Some have a good eye for it, others, not so much. You have the eye. And you know how to play with it. That’s the best part.
What a great collection of images. looks like you all had a lot of fun. And congrats on the new practice. I was wondering if you could take a look at my back? It’s been hurting lately and I….
Thank you Laurie for putting this together and bring back great memories of meeting you and time together with everyone, not that I’ve forgotten any of the fun we had! Hope everything going well with the new practice and see you again sooner rather than later I hope!
What a terrific time you all had. I know from experience that special thrill of meeting folks you’ve followed and loved from afar. What fun to have your love of photography in common and to meet in such an exciting place.
Great photos one and all. Now I want to hear all about the elevator rides.
