Vacation Photos Galore

May 26, 2008

One of the great things about Web 2.0 is that it’s now kinda cool to sit down and share vacation photos with friends — not like back in the old days when you’d sit in the living room and go through slide-by-slide while Grandma or somebody tries to explain every little detail in the photo. Save me from that torture!

Now, you can cruise through pix and see what you want, leave comments on the photos you want to, mark some as favorites, etc. Or you could ignore them altogether and make me sad. šŸ™

I think this might be my favorite shot from the Philly/NYC trip earlier this month:

Cradle of Liberty

That’s a somewhat artsy-fartsy shot of Independence Hall. Turned out well, and a little messing with the exposure makes it more interesting (to me). If you’re curious to see more, the full set of 39 photos is on Flickr now.

You can see my son at Yankee Stadium, and some good action shots from the game we saw. Or maybe the room where the Declaration of Independence was debated in Philly, plus the very moving Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier with its eternal flame. We also took the kids to see my grade school and the all-boys high school I attended — kinda like the school in Dead Poet’s Society, but ours wasn’t a boarding school.

    Wow, there are some amazing photos in here. Thoughts:

    – My favorite has to be the one with Sean standing in front of the plaques of the Yankee greats.
    – Canon should license the one of Betemit playing third.
    – Your action shot of Jeter (?) at the plate is awesome.
    – Your grade school, built in the same year as my high school, looks almost identical. It is scary. I would not be surprised if the same firm did both of them.

    Back in the 1950s, I bet they only had a couple different school architecture templates — so many older schools look exactly the same!
