Sixth of Sixth

I have been tagged by Pink Dogwood over at Wandering Mind to share a picture and talk about it.

Specifically I have to locate the sixth picture in my sixth folder and talk about it. Not in a descriptive sort of way, but what it means to me, why I took this picture and why I kept it.

The way my photos are grouped at the moment meant that this one of Times Square in New York is the sixth photo in the sixth group of photos (I use iPhoto so my pics are grouped).


I had long wanted to visit New York. It is a city I had seen so much of and heard so much about without ever setting foot in it. It is in so many TV programmes and films that you can't help but feel you know the place. I had to see for myself though. I wanted to look out of my hotel room at night and see if the city did sleep and if it really is like it is in the movies.

One of the first places I visited after checking into my hotel was Times Square. It was early evening in November and I couldn't wait to explore despite being tired and hungry. So off I went in search of food and I found it along with bright lights and flashing adverts and people and yellow cabs and noise and bustle and music. I couldn't believe I was actually there. I took a few pics and then found coffee and food before heading back to my hotel where I also took in Grand Central Station and a fine view of the Empire State Building. I was actually in New York. Wow.

I would love it if some of my blog friends could do this fun little meme. It can be a nice quick one to do! I therefore break my 'no tagging' rule and tag:

Melody of 'Biglittlesister'
Diane of 'Forks of the Moment'
Randall of 'Musings from the Hinterland'
Kenju of 'Imagine...'
Rashbre of 'Rasbre Central'
and Nikki-Ann of 'Notes of Life'

Don't feel you have to though. If anyone else wants to do this then I'd love to see what you post!

I will be happy to do it, Bob-kat, and since I have already done it once, I will choose another photo to post and talk about.

A great city to spend some time. I love it when I have an excuse to be there, although its more than a year since the last time.

I'll have a go at this meme when I'm near my main computer with the photo folders.

Cheers.

(BTW, good thing I don't have anything salacious on my computer.)

rashbre said...

I came here from Kenju's. This is a fun meme, isn't it? I played it once and it's somewhere on my blog.

Times Square is always a pleasure. I'm visiting NYC mid-week. Can't wait.

OOOOOPS!

Those pictures I was referring to were RASHBRE's....I apologize...I am not a well person. (lol)

I haven't done it yet, but I will, I think....I wish you would show us some more of your New York pictures. I know you did, at the time...it is just so much fun to see your view of a place I know so well.
Time for a trip to Los Angeles, my dear Bob-Kat!
