2012 was a great year for me! Photography has really started to take off and I began working with Newsday and the Times Herald Record. I also had a solo show in Red Hook, participated in several Hudson Valley Click events and even had the opportunity to ride a hot air balloon while on assignment. I photographed in unique locations – like the balloon and on the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater – and met lots of interesting people along the way.
On New Years Eve I lived all of that out again by covering a New Years Eve event in Kingston, NY. Four locations in uptown simultaneously partied to the theme of 1913 and had food, drinks, and entertainment to go along. All the employees dressed in “period” clothes, as did lots of the community members.
2013 began with a huge crowd packed on Wall St to watch a ball drop. Everyone cheered, hugged and kissed! Some people even brought in the new year by hoola-hooping.
Here’s to a great 2013, full of fun, photography, more unique places and great people!
Oh and you can see some of my photos from the evening in the compilation album on Newsday. All the photos are © CC Photo & Media and if you wish to have a copy, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
