I´ve been following your blog from Portugal, since the first time I visited NY... that way I could keep remembering that great city! Thank you for all the good moments and photos you shared! Keep well in your new adventures!

missy said...

Ming no :( How come? You have no idea how much I loved your wonderful pictures. A regret I have is not tracking you down when I was in New York.

Whatever you do in the future take good care and please start a new blog soon, and keep in touch on facebook xx

Alexa said...

Ming, what's this? I didn't always comment, but I did always come by, and I can't believe you won't be posting this wonderful blog any more. That's bad enough, but will the rest of us NYC bloggers get to see you?

Anonymous said...

Ming, thank you for the wonderful posts over the past few years. I've enjoyed reading your blog and feel like we were right there with you on some adventures. Hope all is well and we (my family and I) wish you much happiness in whatever you choose to do.

I took for granted that Ming the Merciless was for ever. I'm sorry for the closure of this wonderful blog and I wish you well for everything you are going to do.
Ciao, from your friends in Tuscany!

Anonymous said...

Oh no. I may not leave comments but I visit you and New York Portraits, too almost everyday ever since I discovered your sites. I liked it that you posted everyday and we didn't have to wait for the weekend to be over to see your photos and read your snippets of the day.

I await the news like the rest of your readers. Hope you don't close this completely.

I wish you the best. Truly.

Shammickite said...

Hi MIng.... you certainly live up to your name.... Merciless! I sincerely hope you are not leaving blogland for godd. I'll miss your interesting views of NYC. I'll keep checking in from timne to time to find out your latest news. Shammy.

Missy said...

Oh no....I visited NYC for the first time this year and then found your blog just recently and loved having a little view of being back there. I miss it already! Thanks for all the fun!

thwany said...

Hi Ming
Like everyone else I will miss your blog. I wish I would have discovered it earlier. Good Luck to you.

Ellen Kimball said...

Ming, all the best in whatever you do. Thanks for keeping me in touch with NYC today, a very long time after I actually lived there (1962-1969).

How will we learn about any other blog? Do you have my email address? I have you bloglinked and assume you will be back in touch through this site (abandoned). Or are you taking it down entirely?

Peace, love and happiness,

All the best, Ming. Like all the other folks who have posted here, I love to visit your site. I drop by as often as I can and I will miss it. I will also miss your commentary on the images and on life.

Funny, just last week I was going to do a Q&A with you, but couldn't find your address.

I still have the questions ready. If you're interested, email me.

Best,

Hi Ming,

I have really enjoyed your blog. I subscribed to it just a little over a year ago after my first trip to NYC for Memorial Day weekend 2008. Of all the daily photo blogs yours was my favorite. I loved that you engaged your readers by asking a question with each post. I do hope you start up a new daily photo blog wherever you land.

Best regards,
Tracy Elaine

Just Roaming The Cities said...

Wow, Ming, its a shock to see this post here, but I understand peoples lives go through changes. I'm sure yours is for the better, and I hope to see you posting again in the future. BUT DO IT FOR YOURSELF, NOT THE REST OF THE WORLD. :)

Will Miss your posts !! Do come soon ..Unseen Rajasthan

Stefan Verhaar said...

I'm truly disappointed. Several times a week I checked your blog. I live in THe Netherlands and I love New York. Only once in a few years I get to visit NYC. Your blog made it easier for me to except that.
I hope you change your mind. But first of all: I wish you all the best and thanks for all your posts.

Babooshka said...

I just found out the sad news form Chuck's Seattle Daily. Thank you so much for making me laugh on many black day and for showing me a place of endless fascination I have yet to see in the flesh. Always found your question to your viewers an inspired idea even if my answers have been a little mad. Good luck Ming, with your future plans, hope to see another blog one way or another from you. No escape for you though from me. Facebook. Take care in your new phase of your life. It was an absolute pleasure to take a virtual bite of the Big Apple through your eyes.

You will be missed by many. I check your site daily since I left NYC and your photoes makes me feel at home, like seeing a friend again. Thank you for being that conduit and for your kindness and wonderful perspectives and comments. Wishing you all the best.

Lew said...

Ming, You have some great photos here! I found you from Babooshka and have scrolled back through your posts of May and June. I have been to NYC a few times, but not nearly enough to . I hope you leave the blog up for us to wander through your city. And good luck on your new ventures.

Hilda said...

I came to see why there hasn't been a thumbnail for you in the portal for almost a week, and I read this :'(

Thank you for the wonderful photos of NYC that you have shared with us. I am going to miss your them tremendously, but wherever you are and whatever you're doing, I wish you only the best, Ming. Have a beautiful, loving, peaceful and happy life!

And if you ever come to Asia, make sure you visit Manila! I'll just be here :)

I really enjoyed the blog about the city of my dreams.

Good luck, and have fun living in the city that never sleeps!

Shammickite said...

Anyone know what happened to Ming?

nathalie in avignon said...

Ming, I hope that what is pulling you out of blogging is more attractive stuff happening out there in the real world, not something worrying.

Your blog has been a joy and an inspiration to me. And two and a half years of daily posting of that quality is long enough to impress anyone. Well done!

Good luck in your next endeavours.
Wishing you all the best,
Nathalie

Ken Mac said...

sonia a. mascaro said...

Hi Ming!
I am glad that all is OK with you!
Have a great time in Maine!

Oh, Maine! :-D

I hope too that you do a Maine Daily Photo next. But keep this one open, please. I have yet to see the archives.

Thanks again for the interesting glimpses of NYC!

Best of luck!

Babzy said...

Nice to hearing from u ;) i wish you all the best in Maine !

Hilda said...

Good luck with the move, Ming! I'm already looking forward to your new blog. Should be very interestingly different from NYC!

Ellen Kimball said...

Hi Ming,

Glad to know you are healthy.

Going to Maine! That WILL be a challenge. I'm in Portland, OREGON.. named in a coin toss after Portland, MAINE.

Have a wonderful summer! New challenges ahead...

Cordially,

Nubia said...

I expect some great photos of Maine from you! =)

(G@ttoGiallo) said...

I come (from Fab's TDP aka the "Mole catcher") and you go, too bad !
Are you starting a "Maine sthing" Daily Photo ?

Anonymous said...

Hope to see your wonderful photo's from a new location. Best of luck.

Susu said...

I'll really miss your blog... you are starting a new one, right?! It has been such a pleasure getting to know you in Blogland:)

Christine said...

Maine is wonderful for a Daily Photo Blog :o)
See you soon and best regards from France !

Corey Templeton said...

Maine, really? What area? Maybe we could switch houses. :-P

Fabrizio - ikol22 said...

I'm afraid I'm the last here. Here, but not in my thought. Even if I cannot visit too much blogs per day, NYC seen through your eyes with your never ordinary question, is something I'll remember forever. Let me wish you all the best !!!!

Jilly said...

Ming, oh my goodness, I have just seen the news. I've always adored your blog, your photos, what you have to say and of course am so sorry you are giving it up. But hey, Maine! Think of those crabs or are they lobsters you'll be eating and such a beautiful place too. Perhaps you'll delight us with a Maine blog eventually.

Meanwhile, I wish you all the luck in the world. An end is always a beginning. Remember that. Thankyou Ming for your comments over these two years and for your inspiration.

And good luck! Jilly xxx

alice said...

Enjoy your new job and your new life! I can imagine it's hard to leave a city like NYC... But i'm waiting for a new blog!

NYD said...

Well, Ming. I have really enjoyed seeing my hometown through your camera lens. Thanks for that.

Good luck with the new job!
Cant wait to see what you'll be posting next.

がんばって!

Saretta said...

Ming! I love your blog! Will you consider doing a Maine blog? I hope so!!! Best wishes!

To be honest with you, your blog is the one bring me to the city daily photo family, and ...wish you come back earlier!
