And then I told myself to get over myself. For heaven’s sake, they’re just pictures and this blog is for sharing them with you.
So for what it’s worth, some photos of my trip to the other end of Manhattan down by Canal Street (the East section, by Little Italy and Chinatown).
Most of these shots were taken while walking along Canal Street. I wasn’t prepared for the seediness of it all but some things I found quite cool, like the bushes growing along the rooftop above.
We had lunch in Little Italy and then hit the shops along Canal Street where I got to observe my friend, Peg, in action. With the street vendors, the girl’s haggling skills astounded me.
Trying to be artsy. And failing.

I liked the streetlights along this pretty section of Little Italy.
Peg’s two friends came along and all three of them work together for the postal service in NJ. So we thought it would be fitting to take a photo of them in front of the huge post office on Canal Street.
Small film crew here, but it was the shutters that caught my eye.
Love love me do.
And finally, I have no idea what happened here. I was trying to capture the lights of the city as we were driving away and boy, did I have the settings wrong. So wrong that the shutter opened and stayed open. I turned the camera around to see what was up, which created all the craziness.
I am just such an amazing photographer sometimes.
But at least I can laugh about it.
