Saturday night we attended and event that took us on a cruise down the Hudson river, East River (they go around Manhattan) and around the Statue of Liberty. We've done this sort of thing before, but last night, the air was wet, and misty and cool...
Do you mind if I share with you the amazing photos? (Instead of quilts!)
I wasn't sure anything would turn out... being it was dark out and the boat was rocking... Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised!
(sometimes I still can't believe I live here)
What wonderful pictures, it is so cool that you live there and can enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for sharing these photos with us. They are awesome! I have never been to New York, so I love seeing pictures like these. Don't ever not take the opportunity to share your pictures with us.ReplyDelete
That's our city we all know and love. I consider it hometown USA. Lady Liberty has always been the proper hostess welcoming everyone.ReplyDelete
How absolutely gorgeous!! It gave me goosebumps looking at those photos - I have to come see your adopted city!.ReplyDelete
I am so jealous! I have always been facinated by NYC, (and the garment district). I love looking at your pictures of NYC, whether they are quilt related or not. I have never been there, but it is on my bucket list. Not sure how I will ever get there, hubby hates NYC. I need to come there without him! Think a big BD is in 2 years.ReplyDelete
Make up the guest room because I am coming to see you one day!ReplyDelete
Fabulous. Two years ago we sailed from the NY harbor on a cruise. I took a million pictures coming and going!ReplyDelete
Don't mind at all! Especially since they are ALL so beautiful! Glad you had a good time!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous pics, Victoria! Thanks for sharing! Every time we go into the city, we are so thrilled to just be there! We don't even have to do anything special, but it all 'becomes' special cuz it's NY! lolReplyDelete
She is a beautiful Lady. i visited the village in France where the sculpter was born on my trip. They are very proud of him. Who wouldn't be.ReplyDelete
Great Photos looks like you had an all round good Saturday.
I've always treasured the years I spent in NY. Too many can't see it's beautyYou've got a whole series of quilt inspirations there! L.Diane. Myquiltkits.comReplyDelete
Wow, your pics turned out great...especially that first one!ReplyDelete
The photos are just gorgeous! And lucky you to get such great photos. I had the opportunity to take some unique photos this past weekend but because I didn't know how to use my camera, I missed great shots. I was thinking as I drove home that I must get out my manual and figure out how to take great photos, not just lots of nice photos. :-) Your post seconded that thought. LOL!ReplyDelete
We take that cruise every year at a friends Christmas party and we get to the Statue of liberty at sunset, then go below and have a fantastic meal. It is a great time.
those are some very dramatic clouds!
Thanks for sharing,
Thank you for sharing these pics. They sure bring back a lot of memories for me. I grew up in Westchester County and spent summers sailing the Hudson River from Governor's Cup to the Statue of Liberty big birthday celebration in 1987 or 88.ReplyDelete
wow, your pictures are wonderful ..ReplyDelete
Great photos! I wouldn't even need a guest bedroom, I could do with a little corner of your studio and a sleeping bag.-)ReplyDelete
I have never been to New York, but it is at the one of the top things on my list of things I must do. Your pictures have moved it even higher on the list. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Amazing and suitable for framing.ReplyDelete
I have been in love with NYC all my life. Every time I see the skyline, my heart skips a beat!ReplyDelete
Your pictures really touched my love of America - thanks so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
Wow, what beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing them.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! Kinda took my breath away:)ReplyDelete
Sounds magical... love your pics! Hello Lady Liberty!ReplyDelete
Great shots! I always love seeing a city from the point of view of someone I know who lives there . . . seems more "real" somehow (and like I'll get to see things I normally wouldn't)ReplyDelete
wow, that was beautiful...thanks for sharing......ReplyDelete
Lovely! I'm glad you took a little break from quilts to post these...it's nice to shake things up a bit, especially when there's something special to see. Looks like it was a magical evening.ReplyDelete
