Quick post tonight. Prior to our trip to NYC, we purchased tickets in advance so that we could be at the Top Of The Rock observation Deck (Rockefeller Center) at sunset. I heard from another photographer that it would be very crowded. So as soon as we got there, I should find a spot at the railing and not leave that spot. Otherwise, I’d never get a spot to photograph from again with all the people.
And I can tell you, that was great advice. We got up there about 1 hour before sunset and almost didn’t get a spot. Once I secured my spot, I couldn’t really move even if I wanted to. It was so crowded up there and at times it was six people deep all the way around the observation deck. MJ was a super wife and patiently waited at the top of this building with me for over two hours while I took over 900 photos. I photographed the skyline as it changed from full sun, to sunset, then blue hour and finally to full night sky. I just took a ton of photos as the sky changed. I loved it. MJ tolerated it, but as always she didn’t complain.
