Here is the second installment of the images from my BMW adventure to Lake Placid and back from New York City. To give a little bit more context about the ride, Saturday we started off taking the Sawmill Parkway to it’s northern extreme before passing through Vermont, then jogging west parallel to the Canadian border until we arrived in Lake Placid NY. The weather for most of the day on Saturday was basically perfect until we started into the last 30 miles, climbing the canyon to Lake Placid. As we gained elevation, I could see where the cloud line was on the mountain. We ended the day riding in cold, wet and dark mountainous conditions.
When we woke up the next day, the clouds still hadn’t dispersed and there was still light precipitation. But as we wound our way through the Adironacks, the clouds gave way to more beautiful weather for the balance of the ride back to NYC. One of the highlights of the ride home was a series of twisties along the Delaware River. We ended up going back and forth through that section 5 or 6 times.
Mother nature is throwing some crazy heat at us right now. It is the kind of heat that is so hot that my breath feels cool when I exhale. Anyway the photo above has nothing to do with the weather. I didn’t shoot it, and it isn’t even in NYC. The photo is one of my latest favorites by Tommy Ton. I can’t handle how good his street style images are.
Friday was international Go Skateboarding Day. Nike SB celebrated in grand fashion by throwing an NYC skate safari. They shuttled the SB skate team around to a couple of the major NYC skate parks, capping off the day at a custom built skate park that they had constructed on a barge. The barge was parked right next to the Intrepid museum on Friday night. I showed up in time to shoot the demo, before having a little skate session of my own. These are a couple of snaps of the SB team throwing down.
In a lot of first world areas, people have in house appliances called dish washers. In NYC (which can be pretty 3rd world at times), dishwashers and disposals are the exception, not the norm. It’s because of antiquated and ailing infrastructure. Until not too many years ago, NYC sewers could not support such newfangled devices. Anyway, here is a shot of my dishwasher. There are 5 differences… go!
This is a shot of a truck that was double parked on my block earlier this week. There are six differences. Go!
If you give up, the key is over here.
