This morning I had to go into the city to drop off something for my sister. Waking up early and begrudgingly accepting the errand wasn't all bad; I got to run to the Museum of Natural History for a bit, which seemed monstrously crowded for a Monday afternoon. I had time for these sketches and a stroll before I had to return home (and before the crowds got to me). Yes children, people enjoy drawing. No parents, that is not a "Buffalo," it is a Musk Ox. It says so right there.
In other news, I was looking for straight razors in the basement and stumbled upon my grandfather's old Nikon F2, along with several zoom and macro lenses, a motor drive, three electronic flashes, a few filters, and a "Pocket Guide to Practical Photography." Considering I had foolishly forgotten he had even given it to me, it was quite a pleasant surprise, and I'm going to see if I can snap anything of worth with it.
