I took a break from the frozen tundra of NYC to visit Las Vegas over a long super bowl weekend. It is always fun to pal around with locals. Instead of hanging out on the strip, I spent my time there exploring the old grittier side of the city. I saw friends, made some new friends, and just generally enjoyed the desert.

I almost didn’t make it out west for Thanksgiving this year. Airfare was a bit outrageous when I first started looking in August. Thanks to Kayak’s price alerts, I was able to snatch up a relatively last minute flight for a decent price. I think that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Interestingly enough, I heard several of my friends echo this sentiment during the weeks leading up to the holiday this year. Various reasons were given.. because it is non-religious, because it is during the fall, etc.. I’m not really sure why I like it so much. I had a really good one this year. I was able to see my parents as well as each of my siblings. I was also able to meet my newest niece. There are few things that are as satisfying as spending time with my peoples.

I shot this show on Palomino Island. I lost my wallet, and got really sunburnt. Also, I had fun. If you find my wallet please mail it to me.

I found out sort of last minute that I wasn’t going to have to work on Columbus Day. I didn’t have enough miles to go anywhere fancy, but wanted to get out of the city. I ended up booking a quick trip to Buffalo NY. I have friends up there, and I had never been. It ended up being a really fun time. Here are a few snaps.
