life | it's a wrap

New Year's Brunch

the only reason i was anxious to start 2012 was to finish up my 365-photo project and i did. for the last day, i wanted to take a special photo, but was not feeling well when i woke up - extreme dizziness, which did not seem to go away. but, it got better and through a bit of stumbling, which is totally acceptable on new year's eve, we had a nice brunch and later headed into the city.

we haven't been to the world trade center area since before 9/11/01 and when i saw the new building going up, 1 WTC, was adorned in holiday colors, i thought it would be a good time to see what's what. it is quite emotional going down there as it brings back the memories of the day, but sometimes you just have to deal with them. little did i imagine there would be such a beautiful sunset, too.

hope you had a great holiday!

xo, cindy

Curious2know, What camera do you use?

Cindy said...

thanks everyone ... i think i'm so used to taking a photo a day i'm still doing it!

i've been using a fuji x100 for the last few months, which was bought with my rainy day fund. it's a little tricky to get used to, but once you do it's a very nice camera.

Tamara said...

kudos on your completed project! i've heard the x100 is such a lovely camera, and your photos certainly prove it to be so!
