I'm no Newbie to NY, this is my 15th time here. I walk the streets and ride the subways without a map. But I've haven't grown tired of photographing the city that never fails to excite me.
I've been convince that this photo has been taken a billion times. I believe this to be a fallacy because very shot can be made unique in some way. So I decided not to focus just directly on the buildings.
Its been crazy day: got into NYC @ 5am and left at 11pm.
Seen all sides during this trip:
helped a japanese guy to DC (stranded in NYC because of the Tsunami)
When to Jersey to see a Sunrise
Find BHphoto CLOSED for the weekend ....
walked the highline
had ramen near aster place
get yelled at for taking pictures at the Lincoln center
Sushi and $4 Cookies up in 74th street.
Sunset at Top of the Rocks (picture above)
Witness a engagement proposal at skating ring downstairs
first in line for the Dizzy Coca Cola Club, Front row table for jazz night
But 1st to leave the place feeling like a real asshole (had to catch a bus home)
Ran for the bus.........
And finally Slept all the way home
-- why tell this story with this photo? Explains the incredible amount of energy in this shot and this city.
