Unique New York #1

In an effort to use my camera more and also capture our everyday life here, in New York City, I'm setting a bit of a New Year's resolution.  With wee ones I hesitate setting anything too rigid (if anything at all) other than the necessities (i.e. take a shower).  (I never thought taking a shower could be a resolution...sweet children certainly change life, don't they?!)  I stray...back to my goal.  I'm hoping to photograph and share, here on the blog, 150 New York City moments this year.  I want to focus on things of the everyday--our everyday--that are unique to our lifestyle in Manhattan.  Why 150 photographs?  Well, one per day (365) sounds fun, but unattainable.  And somedays we have lots of fun, unique experiences which might necessitate more than one photo and other days are, well, pretty hum drum (especially during these cold months) when we don't leave the apartment.

Goals (in a nutshell):
1--carry, use, become more familiar with my Nikon D40
2--capture our everyday life in Manhattan

There you have it!

Getting keys made for our new apartment at a hole-in-the-wall locksmith shop.  It's a door, a hallway, and a whole lot of keys.

And for the grandparents:


  1. Love this idea Kiasa!

  2. Awesome Idea! Can't wait to see!!! :)

  3. Kiasa - what a great resolution! I just stumbled across your blog and have had a wonderful few minutes reviewing your adventures in the city. Would love to catch up sometime when we're headed your way or you're coming ours.

  4. Emily, you inspired this! I hope to capture the city like you use to.

    Elise, so glad you found us! I'd love to come (or have you) visit! I'm putting the Mystic Aquarium on my must go list next summer and we'll visit you for sure then, if not before.

    This is a great goal. I don't have a fancy camera but would like to add this to my list of things to do this year. I look forward to seeing what you see.

  6. You are such an amazing daughter. Who would have thought that that little girl who cried all night long (18 mo.) the first night of our adventure of my getting a masters at BYU would turn out to be such an adventure-loving woman!
