It was may 2005 when my college friends planned for NY, WDC and Niagara drive. It was one week long trip along with my buddies. I never wrote about that trip other than sharing few pictures with my friends. (Which reminds me, I have to write about Rome and Hampi. I will, very soon.)
I was in Milwaukee then, I caught my flight to NYC. It was my first trip to *the big* city. I still remember how excited I was. I have some pics below. I am not going to write complete story but will add a short note below each picture.
New york city in the night from the top of Empire State Building. I amazed with the quality of picture taken by a low end sony cybershot. I guess that is Metropolitan Life Tower in the picture.
That is New york stock exchange. If you walk further you will see the bull.
Note: I usually backup my pictures on an external hard disk. I also do second level of backup on CDs. I have around 40+ CDs with pictures. Recently I was looking for an image from one of my use drives. That is when I realized, some of CDs have got spoilt due to aging. To be on the safer side I am uploading 20 most important pics from each of my trip onto S3. As I was uploading into S3 I thought about writing posts about my travels which I have not written earlier.
That photo “liberty island” is really good.
Have you looked at automatic backup to S3? JungleDisk for instance? I have been using it for backing up photos and important documents for a year – works great!
Nice pics. Esp the Night view. You are right backups are must! I too have learned my lessons the hard way.
