Went on a day trip down to the City of Brotherly Love for a walkabout. I thought New York City was interesting, but Philly is coming in at a close second to it. I saw some very interesting people hanging on the streets in Center City. If you have a chance to get the Philadelphia even for a couple of hours you should the amount of history the city has plus the the people who inhabit the city will make it worth the trip.
If you every happen to see this gentleman say hello. His is the friendliest bus driver you will ever meet even on a Sunday morning during a walk of shame!
I hear all sorts of negativity about using a high IOS because it will ruin you shot, but that is the opinion of the person making the comment. I will take the shot not matter what ISO my camera is on just so I can get the shot, I will try to make sure it is a low as possible, but sometimes you don’t have a choice.
I was joining a couple friends for a pint in Jersey City when it started pouring out and I saw this man walking I assume at the end of his work day ready to start his weekend and I just had to take the shot.
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.
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.
The things you might see but don’t notice is one of the main reasons why I love walking around New York.
Sunny days are great, but I will take gloomy and foggy everyday of week if I could.
I wonder every day why I sit in one location even when the temps can cause frostbite just waiting for something to come into frame, I still don’t have an answer except for it isn’t work and while the opinions of others do matter slightly I don’t do this for anyone but myself.
