NYC – Day 1

Time doesn’t stop.

It’s now been 7 months since we went to NYC. It took me that much time to pause whatever craziness is going on in our lives and get these photos out. I don’t think it ever took this long for me to post photos of our vacation, so I’m unsure what does that say about the energy we channel through each of our passions. Or even if it says anything at all.

Despite all that, I’m happy to look at this photos after that long. L was 13 months old at the time and she’s 20 now. She’s gone through so many changes that it seems surreal this was her at some point. She behaved like a true champ, though.

Our modus operandi is to leave the house/hotel as soon as possible, and only return when the body has given up. More often that not, the mind is still wanting more when the feet have already punched out for the day. With this going on every single day, she didn’t even skip a beat: she laughed, smiled, was smiled at by a couple of famous folks (Aaron Paul and Alice Cooper), and slept like she does not usually at home.

Time doesn’t stop, but we certainly did our best to enjoy the city and create some memories that even time can’t take away.

    Fantástico! Há muito tempo que esperava por ver esta fotos. Pena não as ter visto antes de ir NY. Coincidência engraçada de ter começado também a editar NY à uma semana. :)

      Portanto com muito menos atraso do que eu, certo? :D Quero ver as tuas! Já tenho as minhas todas editadas, agora é seleccionar e exportar!

        Já tenho o primeiro álbum no Flickr, por acaso. Mas mesmo assim já estou com quase 4 meses de atraso. De qualquer forma, isso não bate as fotos que ainda estou para editar do ano passado quando fui a Berlim, Celle e Amesterdão. eheh E como agora ainda vou a Milão e a Copenhaga, estou a ver que nunca mais tenho tempo para elas. Mas é bom sinal, é sinal que estou a viajar. Yay!

        Eu por acaso até faço ao contrário :D Selecciono primeiro todas as que gosto ou que têm potencial e só depois é que edito e exporto.

        Ah, e eu faço uma pré-selecção no início quando importo, mas depois volto a seleccionar o que meto no blog. Daí demorar tanto tempo para as meter. :P
