Zaina + Ben: Who wants to ride the carousel?

So Zaina and Ben tell me, “We don’t like having our picture taken…We’re shy.”

I let them know that’s fine. I give them a few pointers.

I expect that it might take a little while for them to warm up. How was I to expect that after we left Grand Central (and I must say I was pretty amazed we got the shot of them that you will see below standing in the center of the main hall with no one in front of them) that the next 45 minutes would involve an ice cream cone, a ride on the carousel in Bryant Park (I didn’t even know there was a carousel in Bryant Park), and a re-creation of the V-J Day kiss in Times Square (in front of the 40 foot statue they put up to commemorate the anniversary). Thanks Zaina and Ben for bringing me along!

By the way, if you haven’t seen the statue – it is A LOT BIGGER than you think. It’s 40 feet tall! To give you an idea this picture was taken probably 120 – 150 feet away.
