Friday 17 May 2013: Don't stand so close to me
B&H is like the UN Building for camera buffs; if you're at all into photography you can't come to New York and not pay a visit. So naturally it was first on today's itinerary.
They'd just reopened after a two day holiday and are closed again on Saturday which meant it was bursting at the seams with buffs. Even the staff couldn't believe the number of people squashed inside, and had to draft in NYPD's finest - in the shape of Officer Farazmand here - to maintain order at the checkouts.
The rest of the day was spent walking and photographing, a rare pleasure for me nowadays. In fact, I'd forgotten how much I love it.
