It looks like it's warming up a bit! What do you say we hook up in the Times Square area and just walk around with our cameras? We could mill around there for an hour or so, then walk south to Hell's Kitchen where one of my favorite flea markets is, and to cap it off probably plunge into B&H which is a few blocks away.

Any takers? March 12, Sunday, around 12:30 noon. I'd rather we've had lunch already prior to meeting so we can dive right into photography. For those with hunger pains though, not to worry. Hotdog stands abound. Bring a wide or tele lens, each has its advantages :)

I fear these trips won't be "financially sound" for me. Sounds like an awesome little "outing", but at the cost of hundreds of dollars to myself, I just don't see it as a good idea. :-(

I would definitely like to join (I've been waiting for the next POTN meet), but I have another engagement in New Jersey for Sunday. I don't suppose you could move it to Saturday, eh?

You also may want to keep the weather in check. The weekend looks to be surrounded by wet weather, but predictions this early are often inaccurate. It could change in a heartbeat.

Ron - awww c'mon, if you sell your 35L you'll be able to fund several trips to the city :)

Chris, my Saturdays are pretty much blocked off, as I have to take my son to swimming lessons. I could do Saturday late afternoon to evening though, but maybe not this weekend.

Palladium, that looks interesting. When's a good time to go?

TSW, yup we'll have to see what the weather is, it should be clearer as the weekend draws near. If it's just a bit drizzly I may still go, not when it's pouring hard though.

:shock: WATCH YOUR MOUTH! No way. :-) Besides, if I came out, that's the lens I'd USE!

I'd definitely like to do this since I live in NJ just over the GW Bridge and work RIGHT in times square.

It looks like it's going to rain Sunday afternoon. We'll know better by tomorrow or Friday.

I have my brother staying with me in town this weekend, can't make it guys. Only consolation is that I dislike Times Square, and I would probably just complain about the throngs of tourists. Have fun though and I look forward to next time!

Sorry folks, I'll have to call this off. It's the first great weekend of the year and unfortunately I am ill with something. Planned to bike much of the day today but instead Im lying down on my bed. I planned to go ahead with the shoot tomorrow, even if I'm alone, but I don't see that happening. Anyway let's reset it.

James, you're right about Times Square, too touristy. The only thing going for it is that people are more tolerant of other people taking pictures of them, an excellent exercise in developing street shooting skills. Anyway, omce you go south to Fashion Ave, and West to 8th Ave and beyond, that's where NYC character gets better. Oh well, next time :)

BB, I just realized your screen name is from your bike. Just curious, what kind of bike do you ride? I have a GT Avalanche & a Trek Fuel 90.

Hey Andy! I didn't know you're into bikes too. We gotta ride sometime. I have a Bridgestone MB-2, converted to singlespeed, a Litespeed hardtail, a Litespeed road bike, and a Strida folder. I'd love to get a Santa Cruz Blur soon, that is if my wife approves (need to work on that). :)
