AIPAD, 1st Day!

We finally made it to the event but it was a long trek! We were supposed to take off from long the Oakland Airport at 10:10pm, but because of a sand storm in Las Vegas, our plane was delayed for over 5 hours! So we actually left at 4:00 am.  So, live and learn as they say…we will not take any more red eye flights, even if they’re less expensive. By the time we arrived in NYC and got to our hotel, we were very tired, but we were too excited not to go to the photo show, so we went anyway.

As promised, it was a huge venue filled with beautiful photos from all the most famous photographers you can think of. It took us quite a while to get to the D.A.P. and Steidl booth because it was too hard to pass up looking at all the photos on the way there.

Monika was there at the booth and it was wonderful to see her again! She was in the middle of facilitating a book signing with Bruce Davidson. We got a chance to talk to him for a little while. His daughter, Anna Mia Davidson, was with us in Steidlville when we were working on the book the first time. She was publishing her book, “Cuba” at that time.

So here are just a few photos from today. It’s not possible for me to think any more or stay awake any longer. More tomorrow!

Good Night from NYC!
