I Heart New York Tour: The photos you didn’t get to see

From the Manhattan Bridge
Train ride into the city

I’m about to show you never before seen photos from my I Heart New York tour. I went on a tour of the city inspired by Lindsey Kelk’s book “I Heart New York.” Read it here, if you haven’t already. You won’t regret it!

Lindsey Kelk read it and I still can’t believe all the nice compliments she sent my way. She shared it on Twitter and Facebook. So many people read it. So cool!

Here’s what she said:

Author Lindsey Kelk praised my blog

Thank you again Lindsey Kelk! I Heart You!

So down to business. The photos I’m about to show you are a little angry with me. Please don’t refer to them as the “leftovers.” They are a little sensitive about it. I prefer a positive and upbeat blog style, so I apologize if there’s an undercurrent of anger throughout this post. No matter how much I’ve apologized to these photos, they still can’t seem to get past the fact that they didn’t make the tour. By no means did I feel they weren’t worthy enough, but I just had to make some cuts. Please show them some love in the comments. They need it.

Here we go. Deep breaths.

Union Square, New York
I don’t understand. I would have been a great introduction to Union Square. I’m over here welcoming everyone to Union Square! What is wrong with you?

I’m sorry. You’re completely right. I don’t know what I was thinking.

Hope Sculpture
I’m a close up of the famous Hope sculpture. That faraway shot was pitiful. Unbelievable!

It was a tough decision! If I could have used both of you, I would have! I’m sorry.

MOMA
I’m pretty and you know it.

You’re very pretty.

MOMA
I tried so hard for you.

You did. I’m sorry.

MOMA
Too many people in the way for you?

Kind of. Sorry.

MOMA
Do you even know what painting I am?

Ummm……no…sorry.

MOMA
I’m a helicopter inside the MOMA! I’m awesome. It’s because of the dust, isn’t it?

Yeah.

SeaGlass Carousel
I’m way cooler than your other SeaGlass photos.

Yeah, I think you might be. I think I made a mistake. I’m sorry. Maybe I’ll put you on my home page? That’d be cool, right!?

These photos are refusing to talk to me.

Battery Park
I’m so beautiful!

You had to do that. You had to show the garbage? Well, this is real New York. You don’t think your readers can handle the truth!?

Settle down, Jack Nicholson.

Union Square
Was I not cute enough for you?

Of course you are! You’re adorable! I love all dogs.

Speaking of dogs, I wonder if what Lindsey Kelk meant with her comment was that I found love within myself or with this dog?

New York City dog

The dog! It has to be the dog. Look at how he’s looking at me. I need to find this dog again!

Weren’t these photos just lovely? That was such a great day. Thank you again Lindsey Kelk for the inspiration!

Until next time!
