This is an old shot that I came across while doing Lightroom maintenance. Year after year you can see people who love New York City during Christmas for the lights, Rockefeller Centers giant Christmas Tree and the window scenes at some flagship department stores, but The Village Halloween Parade beats all that by a mile and it your are planning a holiday to New York City might I suggest the end of October.
This is a composite on two shots of East Broadway in Chinatown in Manhattan. Everyone takes this shot when they walk across the Manhattan Bridge and if you’re lucky you will be able to get the shot in January and you will see the decorations for Chinese New Year, but in my opinion it really is a boring shot aside from just taking for your personal collection.
This is an old shot I took a few years back on one of the early morning walkabouts. Seeing the city wake up on a Monday morning it quite entertaining.
I once heard a photographer say there is a trifecta street shot that would be his holy gail of shots and it would be an older women in a house coat smoking a cigarette pushing a baby carriage and I think I got pretty close that with this one. She did give me a dirty look and message after I took the shot, but that is something to be expected when you out shooting street photography.
If you from New York City or visit on holiday you will inevitably see something you thought you would never see on a city street.
Not much to say but right place right time. Truthfully I did get lucky this morning with the shot after going out for an early morning walk.
Hit 60 degrees last week and the city came back to life.
Living in or around a big city like New York City even for a short amount of time is something that everyone should experience for the only fact that you will learn more about yourself in a big city then you will anyway else. I can’t really explain what I mean, but it can and will change your views real quick.
Chinatown in Manhattan is one place where everyone from locals to the tourist seem to gravitate towards and I don’t have an explanation why. I can spend a week just wondering around here and not get bored with anything I see.
Coffee, Water, Beer and not always in the order. I stopped by 787 Coffee in the East Village yesterday and I can say the coffee was good enough to make into my cabinet. A little side note, I am a bit basis towards coffee grown in Puerto Rico.
Sunny days are great, but I will take gloomy and foggy everyday of week if I could.
