Football is played during fall and winter yet people are wondering why is Super Bowl XLVIII being held in New York City. Well, football is a cold weather sport even though all the teams are not in cold weather states. Embrace the new and broaden your horizon. A little cold is good. Come! Furthermore, there is no place like New York City where you can have fun and be part of the Super Bowl spirit even if you do not have a lot of money to attend the expensive special events.

I was out yesterday getting photographs for my magazine and the city is definitely ready. I took a walk down Super Bowl Boulevard and despite the cold weather, preparations were in full swing. In Times Square, Fox Sports were busy setting up their broadcast booth and they had a good crowd looking on. Macy’s in Herald Square at 34th Street and Broadway (this is where Super Bowl Boulevard begins) is all decorated with life size NFL statues and on the 4th floor, it is all about the Super Bowl. This is where you get the official Super Bowl XLVIII gear, trading pins, posters and you will also have the opportunity to take your photo with celebrities.

This is New York City, this is the city that never sleeps, and as one sign on a football said, “SNOW, SLEET or HAIL MARY!” Yes, people of the world, come to New York City and New Jersey (yes, Met Life Stadium is in New Jersey) and enjoy the best Super Bowl ever. It is going to be epic and you want to be here.

Happy New Year 2014

New York City and Times Square 2013- the unbeatable combination. In a few hours crowds will gather in Times Square, New York City to watch the ball drop and ring in 2014. Many people cannot wait to see 2013 go because it has been such a difficult year, while others are glad they made it so far.

The end of the year is not only a time to look back, but also to look forward to the new year with hope. The more hopeful you are about the new year is the better it will be. This is not the time to think negative thoughts, as a matter of fact if you are going to think- think positive. Also, for this new year, avoid negative people at all costs because they will suck the very life out of your vision and leave you hopeless. Life is full of possibilities even in difficult or challenging times.

In 2014, do not just make resolutions but act resolutions. The best laid plans need action on your part. If you do not take action on your resolutions no one else will.

Happy New Year 2014, and think big and think positive. If you are coming to New York City, bring your camera and dress warm.

The New iPad Air – Love It or Leave It

See the Apple iPad Air by clicking on this link. http://www.apple.com

I had a chance to look at the features of the new iPad known as iPad air and the truth is it is very light. It makes for easy holding and compared to the 4th generation, that alone is worth getting the new iPad air.

Apple is consistently consistent with their products and they do not make sweeping changes from one model to the next. I think the reason for that is so they can add whatever is missing in the next generation products in the series. So guess what? In 6 months you can bet there will be an ipad Air 2 which will have an improved camera or some new feature that is not on the AIr. Notice their pattern, they could have easily put Retina display in their first iPad mini. But they did not. If you bought the ipad mini and you want the new one you could trade it in, and get the newer model.

Christmas is going to see a lot of tablets being given for gifts and i am sure the ipad AIr and the new iPad mini will top the sales again. If you have not yet seen the iPad Air, go into t store and go try it out. You will be amazed if for no other feature, but for how light it is. It beats you carrying around a heavy laptop on a daily basis. So, the verdict is in on the new iPad Air. Will you love it or leave it? I say love it.

Fall 2013 Photography

Fall is an awesome time to get out there with your camera and capture some vivid color.  depending on where you live, the leaves might just start changing color, but, you are not limited to one geographic location.  My tip today is to just get on a bicycle or take a bus or train ride in your area and you will be pleasantly surprised.  In New York state, the further north you go the better color you will see at this time.  in the city areas, the leaves do not start giving you great color until the end of October.  The photo below is that of Central Park in New York City.  The leaves have not yet changed color, but I will be going back to this location as soon as they change and you will see the colors. Today, get your camera and walk, ride or take the bus and start capturing some great fall colors.

Visit my website and book your New York City photo shoot today. Anyone can give you a good photo with the help of  Photoshop, but what mileposts Productions will give you is a great experience and great photos.
