Last week I headed out to New York City for the Photo Plus Expo. While in NYC, I stayed in the East Village with my friend New York City Music Photographer Ahron Foster and his wife. Being a visitor to the city, I brought a camera with me on the trip however not a normal camera. What I used was a disposable film camera as I attended the expo and explored the city. This posts includes some of the images taken with this camera.
One of the places we visited was the Metropolitan Museum of Art which had a rooftop exhibit by the Starn Brothers. Big Bambu was a living project where the structure would continue to grow to the height of 50 feet during the six months it was on the roof of the Met. Built with bamboo poles and assembled by rock climbers as well as Doug and Mike Starn it was not only possible to view the structure from the roof but also tours were performed allowing you to walk through the structure on walkways constructed out of bamboo. Unfortunately it was not possible to take photographs while on the tour, however the following images were taken from the roof of Big Bambu.

After Big Bambu, it was off to the expo but not after a walk through Central Park on a nice fall day.
Spending time in New York for a few days, I found some interesting subjects around the city to photograph as well.

and of course what would be a trip to New York City without a photo of a cab
It was a good trip to the east coast and great to not only visit PPE but also experience the city.
