I leave Sunday on a work trip to Hoboken, NJ and will be there for most of a week. I will have to spend most of each day in the NJ office, but my goal is to get into the city at least two nights while there.
This is going to be a scouting trip, or foreplay, for my bigger trip there in late October or early November when I will spend part of my sabbatical soaking in the great city. I plan to photograph the hell out of it again on that trip. I hope to meet up with old friends, like Valya and Moon, and make a few new ones as well. It is going to be good for my art, soul, and happiness. God, I love that city.
I've written a bit about that city and the big trip I had there last year. There are beautiful, fun, and exciting memories that still make me smile. There are a few that hold a special place in my heart that are beautiful, painful, and important to me. No other city has had this effect on me.
Next week's trip is going to be just a tease for me. One goal is to finally visit Times Square. I know it is cliche to go there, but I have to see it at least once in my life. I traveled under it numerous times last year getting to other subway stations, but never went up to see it.
I will bring a small point-n-shoot digital to capture ideas for the big trip. I love a little tease before the big event.
