Street Crossing, on Fifth Avenue

Crossing, NYC
Photo by myself, around Fifth Avenue and 50th Street, in Midtown.

We had a chilly day in the city, Christmas Day.

If there is ever a 'good' day to be in New York in terms of traffic, I would suggest Christmas Day. Not many people are driving about, and parking rules are suspended. So you can park just about anywhere.

I used my new Canon 75-300mm lens to take the above photo. It is taking some getting used to, since you can only take photos of things more than 5 feet away. Unfortunately if you see something very interesting nearby, you can't take a photo of it (!).

These people look like they are prepared for cold weather. Lucky you getting getting a new photography toy.

And always where you look that crowd. So much people but the strange thing is in the centre of amsterdam it is now just the same . Where you go it is crowded. Yes when I was born in amsterdam the netherlands had 7 mil. inhabitants. Now 16 mil.

That looks very cold overthere. We have a kind of wet spring here.

Wow! seems like a great camera for these types of shots though. Nice one Kitty.
Hope you had a nice holiday!

There's lots to look at in this shot Kitty.

The telephoto of your new toy compresses the depth, making the scene feel even more crowded than it is, Kitty. Nice shot! Hope the holidays were swell for you and Mark.

Hello Kitty! Sorry I've fallen off the edge! Hope you enjoyed a special Christmas holiday! I thought of you after the Sandi hurricane....
Kind regards from EAGAN
