Sunday was a blast! A friend and I met up and walked from Newport to Hoboken. The sun was shining with only a slightly-too-chilly wind. Because the day was so gorgeous, so full of opportunity, he had asked if I wanted to accompany him on the day trip. Of course! Despite a late and somewhat upsettingly emotional night out drinking in the West Village, I figured a walk outdoors in good company would set me right. Good choice.

Toward the latter half of the day, we met up with 2 others and headed over to an incredibly picturesque abandoned building in Jersey City. With the setting sun, the light was just right.
Last weekend I rode my bicycle through Staten Island. It was fun. The ultimate destination was back home, though. The route I actually mapped was a circuit, connecting:
- My apartment
- The temporary Bayonne Bridge shuttle bus from downtown Bayonne to …
- The shuttle endpoint in Elm Park on Staten Island
- Clove Lakes Park
- The Staten Island Expressway!
- Fort Wadsworth near the Verrazano–Narrows suspension bridge
- South Beach Boardwalk
- The Staten Island Ferry
- Financial District and Wall Street
- World Financial Center
- Paulus Hook in Jersey City, taking the Light Rail to …
- 45th Street in Bayonne
- My apartment
What a cool invention, Polaroid. Analog world, instant results.
After work on a Wednesday, a coworker – avidly interested in photography – suggested he and I go shopping. He had developed a desire to own the Mimaya RZ67 camera and had done his homework.
