Two Boots Pizza

 I went to the UWS the other night to find City Belle a special gift for Christmas.  It was worth the trip, I stumbled upon Two Boots Pizza.  As soon as I stepped inside I went back in time.  It was a neat trip.  All their pizzas are named after random characters and celebrities and they had really eclectic art.  I ate the Duuuuuu'de! 
Outside the artsy fartsy pizza parlor. 

Yummmm 
WHOA!!!
 It was a couple blocks outside the train station on 96th street in front of Symphony Space. 
 The interior had cool squares. 
Well thank you sir..


until next time,

Guys' Night Out

 It was 'Guys Night Out' last night and City Belle and I went to Lord & Taylor for their annual Christmas Give-Away.  It was awesome, filled with free booze, clothes 75% off, an iPad2 give-away, a putting challenge for Superbowl tickets (i missed it), Justin Tuck of the NY Giants and the J-E-T-S cheerleaders were there! WOW!  Only in New York kiddos!




On the walk there you notice that the weather has turned cooler immediately here in Gotham; not that we're complaining, it's just that when adjusting to the cold weather you like to give yourself a little time. Here in the New York it dropped 20 degrees from one day to the next like BAM! It's cold, but we love it.


Free SLIDERS!


 Justin Tuck, DE for the NY Giants, had a children's book he was signing.  I spoke to him and told him to come to the Redskins, and that we would pay him top dollar.  He said nope, but we DID steal Barry Cofield from them and he felt London Fletcher was a great guy.  He was super nice and charming and seemed happy to be there.  
 This is Victor Cruz.  WR for the NY Giants. He's a Fantasy Football lifesaver and got me into the playoffs this year on one of my teams.  He had some cool Jordan 11's on. 
GO J-E-T-S!
 City Belle was with me the whole time and she played along with the guys night out theme. These girls didn't have crap on my City Belle.  She's my pride and joy.  These girls were glam-a-zons, but nice as can be, and were giving away free jockey T-shirts. 
(I took 2!)
 Free beer, burgers, chips, and clothes! Oh my! 
 Go JETS! 
 The NY Public Library on the walk home. 


until next time,

Midnight Manhattan


Where I'm from in North Carolina, we have Alan Jackson's, Midnight in Montgomery.  A song about Hank Williams Sr. in a smokey haze of winter chill.  'When the wind is right you'll hear his songs smell whiskey in the air.  Midnight in Montgomery he's always singing there.'  It still to this day is one of the best videos I've ever seen.  I like the manner in which the videographer shoots the music video.  It's spooky, but not dark and scary.  There's a fine line between the two.  I guess this was my motivation behind these City Shots I did. I hope you enjoy them.  I apologize for some of them being crooked as I didn't bring my tri-pod w/ me that night.  
 This is shot from Long Island City, Queens.  I took the 7 train from Grand Central Terminal to Jackson Ave and walked just a few blocks to the pier.  When I got there I was taken aback by the sheer beauty of New York.  Manhattan is a tough town, but she is a gorgeous City and I'm very thankful to live here.  During Christmas time the City is so festive and everyone's a little nicer and a little friendlier...but just a little. 
Smiley
Grainy B/W is a post edit function on my camera.  I can actually shoot in B/W as well.  I really enjoy photography and recommend it to anyone who needs a hobby or a self-esteem booster.  Taking a photo is a lot like instant gratification.  You snap it, post it to Facebook, people like it, you feel good! Everybody wins! 
7 Train
That's the Chrysler Building; and the blue steeple flanking its left is the Bank of America Tower based out of Charlotte, North Carolina.  The large-lit building (center) is the United Nations.
LUNA
 That's the Queensboro Bridge on East 59th Street.  It takes you to...you guessed it, Queens from Manhattan.
 Look Mom! I'm walking on water.
 A lot of times Gotham can be a prison of decadence, a City that enabled me to photograph a rock show one night and cook homemade halibut another. It's a catch-22 living in Manhattan but it's an awesome place, it's as simple as that. 


until next time,

~Country Boy



P.S. If you steal any of these pictures, karma angels will steal from your soul(just kidding)...at least ask MDK Global Design Studios for permission before ganking my photos..
