It is a little under a week before we meet at NYC! I decided to make a new thread because the old one here https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=120766 has become quite long and tedious to read. Here are the things to remember:
WHAT - Firecracker Ceremonies, opening of Lunar New Year celebration.
WHERE - Manhattan Chinatown, Canal area. Meeting place, just ouside the Starbucks Cafe at the corner of Canal and Centre Streets.
WHEN - January 29, Sunday, at 11:30 am. Ceremonies go on from 12 to 2 pm.
HOW - to get there? Get to NYC, and ride the train of your choice to Canal Street For those having trouble with directions, PM me.
WHO - Several members have signified interest in attending this very informal shoot. Me, Ron S Jr., James (jwbker), Chris (Calzinger), Peter (peter740), maybe Andy (Snafu). This looks like a merry bunch, anyone else who wants to go is most welcome!
WHAT TO BRING - Comfortable clothing, shoes. Bottled water. At least $10 for food (more if you have a huge appetite). Don't forget your camera. Wear something red, it's good luck!
WHAT TO EXPECT - There will be sightings of mythical creatures that cavort up and down the streets - dragons, unicorns and the more mundane lions. There will be lots of people, prepare to jostle a bit. Extended weather forecast predicts that there will be a few showers - certainly not enough to put a damper on the festivities. This may change as the day draws near.
Hope to see you folks! This is just the first NYC meet this year, we will have more to come!
