Photos from our trip to New York, 2007
Page 1 of 4
These were taken July 4-10, 2007...
I used my old Minolta 35mm Maxxum, and had the photos put on CD's by Walgreens, but their work was not as good as expected. The original prints are of a much better quality, sharper and not cut off at times. Also, they were all upside down on the CD and with a cryptic numbering system. I couldn't even get my Windows computer to read the CD's, so I had to copy the photos over from another computer running Linux. But it did save a lot of work scanning them, hope this will do for now...
BTW, one of my hobbies is train photography, so you will see that a good number of these pictures are of the various transit systems I encountered, as well as museum, street, Coney Island, and Statue of Liberty photos.
