I thought I’d post a few shots from New York City. I took two trips to NYC while I was out east, and these were all taken during the second trip, when I took my wife with me to see the city. We had a great time wandering through the streets, and I found a great place to take photographs!
I love that there is so much going on at all times of day and night, which allowed me to simply walk out my door with a camera in hand and take in all that the city had to offer. It is quite the sensory assault the first time you experience it. Having spent a lot of time living and traveling in large metropolitan areas, I am no stranger to the sights, sounds, and smells of a city of this size, but I have to say that NYC is a whole different beast.
Being on the ground in NYC gave us so much to see. I wish that the Twin Cities had more areas for pedestrians like this, and I really enjoy walking beneath the tall buildings. That cramped, big-city vibe is right up my alley. Visually, NYC is like a smorgasbord for those who are photographically inclined.
We spent most of our time in Midtown Manhattan, and both really liked it. I would love to go back at some point and spend my time there doing nothing but making photographs! I don’t have too much else to say for this post, so I’ll just get out of the way and let you look at some images if you are so inclined.
