I spent most of the weekend with my mouth gaping open, looking up. I didn't snap many pictures of our city wanderings. All five of them are right there. As we walked around, and found our bearings, and navigated….. the camera just didn't make its way out of the bag much.
This was my first visit to NYC. I'd driven through once, years ago. My oh my, I am a country mouse for sure. I felt overwhelmed by the busy-ness and greatness of it all, standing at the base of enormous buildings and looking up, up, up…..
We spent the majority of our time at the workshop, which I have more to share about tomorrow, and we had a brief trip into a lovely old print shop in the Seaport Museum. Bowne & Co. Stationers started in the late 1700's and the store is historically set up as a 19th century print shop. The old printing press (seen in the back of the last photo) is amazing and produces beautiful work. I really enjoyed looking around the shop and came home with a few reprinted vintage nature posters for the kids (bottom right, last photo).
I'm still catching up after the trip…. so I've gotta run. Swing in tomorrow! I have a little something for you and lots of pictures from the workshop. Fun stuff!
