Life is short. We all hear that constantly but rarely act upon it. Why not take a chance on something? Every person reading this sentence is super busy with life/work/boyfriend/girlfriend/kids/blah blah. Take a day off from everything and indulge in yourself, and only yourself. If you don't deserve it then who will? NYC is a beautiful place, but let's talk off the beaten track. Ever heard of the cloisters castle which is part of the met? Of course. Ever been? No. Or perhaps you've heard of Untermyer Park? Probably not, but it's cool and worth checking out. These moments in life are passing by, don't wait for the "someday" to go see them. That someday may be today! Although the main goal of these meetups is to take stellar photos and get others excited about your/their photography, this is also a group for those who want to spend a day out of the overbearing renowned city and take shade somewhere close (and perhaps meet a cool person or two). There are several rules: 1. No negative nancys (sorry) 2. No camera discrimination (want to use your single use film camera? bring it on!) 3. Carpooling is welcome 4. Let loose! I have plenty of amazing ideas of where to go to get away and take incredible pictures, they range from Soho to Newport, RI. The rest is up to you guys!
