This summer my husband took our twelve-year-old son, Alex, to New York. Just the two of them. They were gone six days. That was some serious Father/Son time!
Rich was born and raised in New York, so he had a lot of things to show Alex. These are the photos that I got from Rich's little point-and-shoot camera. Before he left on the trip, I practically
threatened begged him to take some good photos during this trip. After all, not only was this Alex's first time in New York, but it was also his first time on an airplane. And I hated that I wasn't there to take the photos! I had to trust Rich to document it all for me. Rich, the guy who usually cuts people's heads off in photos. I was at his mercy.
They called me from the top of the Empire State Building. My last words before we hung up were to Rich: "Honey...be SURE to take a photo of Alex on top of the Empire State Building!!" and he said, "I will. I promise!" and here's the photo he took. Oh yea, this is one of my favorites. I'm thinking of getting it enlarged, framing it, and hanging it up in our living room.
in the airport waiting for the flight home -- doesn't he look a little bit like a New Yorker here?
