I will definitely NOT be doing a photo walk in NYC tomorrow, Wednesday. Damn it was cold out there. I have no idea how people photograph in the cold. Pressing the shutter button is not the issue. It's adjusting the exposure and if necessary, changing a menu setting.

I am thinking that my next outdoor winter photo taking adventure will be with the Green Box. I figure my photos could not get any worse!!

Actually, when I got home from work today my wife reminded me about the very "warm" place I am going tomorrow. Yeah, I'm taking my daughter snowboarding. So much for staying warm on my day off.

Cool, where do you ride? I take the bus from my local ski shop up to Hunter every once in a while. I got a 3 pack of lift tickets for Christmas.

I wear a pair of Adidas running gloves. They're made of nylon or a similar material - thin enough that I can work the menu buttons.

According to the "About Us" page, they meet in the Bronx. I tried to get directions from Google, and the location is very difficult to get to. Have they moved to a more accessible location?

I don't ride, my friend, I hike the mountain and take pictures of my daughter riding. You crazy or sumptin? ;) I'm an old man.

As to Adidas running gloves, don't be fooled for a moment. Shomat no run, that's for sure. He sort of lumbers about. :lol:

In what way? Do you mean the lodge, lifts, trails, all of the foregoing?

I think Windham's lodge, lifts, cafeteria etc... are all a lot nicer than Hunter's, which seem run down in comparison.
