At least once or twice a year, my husband and I make a trek to Manhattan to just hang out. My hubby grew up right outside of the city and visiting is very nostalgic for him. In addition to meeting up with friends or relatives, still in the area, we sometimes go to a play, visit a museum, or go shopping. I usually take a ton of pictures when we see or do something new, but the problem is, I don’t get around loading the pics on my computer. Don’t even ask me about the discovered roll of film I developed a few years ago that revealed my now 26 & 23 year-old daughters at ages 10 & 7 at the Washington Zoo. Yep, I’m slow with taking care of my memories. Last night I finally got around to putting the pictures from our November journey on my computer.
During our last trip, we had some time to kill in between planned activities, so we made a quick visit to Obscura, the shop where the Science Channel’s show Oddities is filmed.
I imagined that Obscura would be chocked full of all of the wacky artifacts and people who I’d seen on television. I pictured that we’d kill a few hours checking the droves of antiquities out. I imagined wrong. It had some great stuff inside, but the place was only about as big as a one car garage inside! Still, I saw some familiar faces.
Like this guy:
I recognized this dude, too!
And this one made me sad. Poor little thing! 😦
And then there were these guys:
And this very nice lady:
Though the shop was small, and didn’t contain as many oddities as we imagined, it was still quite an interesting little stop on our journey.
Are you timely when it comes to developing or downloading your photographs? What’s an interesting place that you’ve visited lately?
