Queens Night & Day video trip report, and photos

Postby dannymac » Tue May 06, 4:53 pm

Hope to get a trip report written soon, but in the mean time here's a couple little video's of our Queens Night & Day.

please note: my DV camera has no 'image stabilization'; I'm walking in some of the footage; and other filming was done atop a house boat; Oh yeah, I was buzzed most of the time.

PS: I'm slowly getting some images uploaded. You can look at the 'public' images here.

I was disappointed when I found out you weren't going, because I was plannin' on relying on your superior judgment.

She got a Chinese tea set; some assorted delft items; glassware/stemware & some other odds and ends. I don't think anything of 'real' value, but they were all a bargain - and only one piece managed to get broken on our return flight.

That looked like fun.

I did Queens Day at various multiples of 10 in my age but haven't been in quite awhile. Maybe I should go at the next 0 year, see how it's changed if at all.

The movies did make me want to be there yet again.

That DJ was 'Shimon M', He's a New Yorker. It was just dumb luck that we stumbled into his gig that night. I had wanted to get some footage of his show for a young kid at work who's into that techno/transe music.

Thanks

Indubitably!!
To be truthful though, most of them would be the more correct statement.

Let's just say that she took the vast majority of the 500+ images captured while we were there - for 6 nights. I won't be putting them all online, but there are a bit more to come.

500 pix in a week--a woman after my own heart. Nice job and it was a pleasure to meet you both.
