On July 18th I was at the Madison Square Park for the Celebrating Madison Square Chefs 2018 event. I donate my time every year to help raise money to maintain the park. There were 29 of the best restaurants in the neighborhood. The event was great. The weather was not. It was heavy rain until half an hour before the event was over. I couldn’t take my camera out so I used my phone instead, a Samsung Note 4. It’s my favorite camera and the photos are awesome. Looking at the photos you’ll see why I like this phone.
