A Ball of a time :D

Happy New Year

Life’s been so busy lately that blogging seems to be a luxury. That explains why this post is more than a week late!!! Hope you all had a great start to 2008 :)

As the new year tiptoed in, we reveled en plein air amidst a sea of humanity........Put on your sleuthing caps and see if you can figure it out, where have we been ;D

Time Square revelers

Having a ball!!!! ;D

That was the closest we could get to the ball!!!! We had not planned to be in NYC on New Year's eve but once there we decided to go the whole tourist-hog..........albeit a tad too late in the day. Was it fun? Sure. Will we do it again? Ha!

That must have been an amazing place to be on New Years Eve, too many people for me though.
Glad to see you blogging again. I've missed you.
No sun here yet. its still raining but just enough to be annoying. Unfortunately I took no storm pictures. It was too wild to poke my nose out the door.
Post when you can. I look forward to it.

Totally hear you on the time thing. It's all I can do to keep my daily photo blog going...

Many years ago, I went to the NYC New Year's thing with some friends. About a half-hour before midnight we decided we had had enough so we shoved our way out of the crowd and watched the ball drop on a TV screen at a McD's across from a subway station. We hopped on the train back home within 5 minutes! Yes, never going to try that again, ha!

I have no idea where you were. But if you don't know, I sure wouldn't hazard a guess. The photography is nice to see and the colors are really nice.

So glad you are back to blogging! We've missed you and your wonderful shots!!!

NYC on any day is a little to crowded for me.....but glad you had FUN!

Lori said...

Hope you had fun in the big apple!! It looks like it was a great celebration! Happy New Year!

Kerri said...

If I'd know you were coming I would've stayed! :)
I'm glad you enjoyed your visit to the Big Apple. New Years Eve in Times Square might be a little overwhelming as an introduction though :)
Everything is big there, eh?
I love your photos...they capture the mood perfectly.

Happy New Year Moi - and more wonderful photo/posts to us. :p lol
Fantastic Times Square in New York, lucky you. Did you go up the Empire State building and do the whole Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr thing? :-)

Have a great time Moi.

PS For some reason none of my links worked so have posted another poem (a little shorter), let me know if you can't find "tufts in a storm" although on second thoughts think Snowdrop, which is the one I've posted, is better.

I see that you two said to yourselves, "If we can't drive up one coast, let's drive up the other!"

Happy New Year.

Hey Swati, I hope you remember me from one of our classes we took together last yr. Have always been reading your wonderful blogs, and now thot of leaving a comment. New year in New York, wow.. must've been really awesome.

Cris said...

Amazing Moi, I had never seen it "so close" how fun that you get to go to NY and shared with us, that's huge huh.

Max-e said...

Wow, what a mass of humanity. I usually avoid the crowds, but this year I did braved them for the opening of our season and had a lot of fun

'JoAnn's-Digital-Eyes' said...

Wow Moi, Yes now I can see your 'busy life' I would not worrie about your blogging at all, life is so much more important! What a great celebration of NEW years eve, we might like to celebrate it in YOUR countrie next year?

I showed some lightballs on TOP of the Dunes on the ' The Hague- beach', for a special reason on my blog, you might like to see them?

Have agood day/week:) Greetings

isabella said...

Well, when in Rome...Not a bad start to a new year! And I think I can just pick you out in the crowd (you are the tanned one, right? ;-))

Hope things will settle down soon for you - ya gotta believe (see how cleverly I made this Mets/NY connection)!

ruth said...

I've always wondered how people who get into the thick of the crowd go to the bathroom.

Happy New Year!

Everyone should do NYE in Times Square at least once in their life. I hope to do it one day. Looks like a blast!
