Reconnected with some old friends over the weekend, and was able to meet two of their kids for the first time. It all happened at the Museum of Natural History. Here are some snaps from along the way.

The Wild West

I took a trip to Utah with some of my NY friends to take advantage of the waning snow pack on the Wasatch range. After a couple of days of riding, we headed into the desert for target shooting. This photo was actually snapped by my old man, who is an incredible marksman. This was my friend Jeff’s first time shooting a high-powered rifle. He was a regular deadeye by the time we finished up. I was acting as spotter when this was snapped. I’m not sure why I like this image so much. But I really do. It was a great way to cap off the weekend.

Over the weekend New York City had its first snow storm that actually left behind any accumulation. I’m not sure what it is about this event that makes it so great. The fact that it happened on a weekend made it extra nice. It is kind of like a magical slap in the face driving home the fact that winter is here.

It literally snowed all day on Saturday. I took the opportunity for a quick walk in the park first thing in the morning. Most of the photos that I took were mental images. But these are a couple of images that I took with a camera. Also saw this today and found it amusing.
