Stopping Traffic

Taxis run the show when it comes to traffic in NYC. Sometimes they even stop front and center in the middle of the action.

A Ray of Light for New York City

The World Trade Center Transportation Hub was just getting the final touches when I visited in 2016. Through the last of the construction I caught a purple ray of light in my lens that I thought fit this place just perfectly.

Locks and Stuff

Apparently it is a thing to put a lock on a public structure to profess your love. NYC is officially not in favor of the practice of people putting stuff on their structures, but I believe it makes for an interesting photo.

Zoom Zoom

Cathedrals are cool and all, but so are light trails from cars zooming by. The night was pretty quiet, but I still managed to get a few cars to drive by to light up the foreground.

I Miss New York City

The big city of dreams, the city that never sleeps, the home of Liz Lemon. All great things. This was a particularly fun night walking around NYC and keeping our eyes looking up. 30 Rockefeller Plaza is spectacular in the way it lights up the night sky.

Don’t Look Directly at the Sun

It’s OK to point your camera at the sun, though, especially if you get a sun star and rainbow like this! The Flatiron Building in New York City is impressive on its own, but combined with direct sun and the glass of this lens I was able to get some unique results! Sometimes lens flare isn’t such a bad thing!

From the High Line

The High Line in New York City is a great way to take a break from the city. While walking above it all you get to appreciate the pace of everyone moving below.

Manhattan Sunset

My original plan was to go to the top of Rockefeller Center to catch the sunset. Then it started raining, and then it started pouring. I was sure sunset was not going to happen. When the storm cleared right before sunset we were with our gracious hosts on Roosevelt Island and rushed to the roof. The sunset was super bright, and the leftover storm clouds were dramatic. Since it was just a few days past Manhattanhenge, where the direction of the sunset lines up with the corridors of the city, I was able to get the sun between two buildings right before it disappeared. Sometimes missed plans work out after all.

NYC in the Sun

The sun was harsh but the city was beautiful. Black and white was the only way to properly capture the very edge of the city.

NYC in the Spring

New York is fantastic in the spring. I was lucky enough to be there when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom on Roosevelt Island, offering a colorful border to the Manhattan skyline.
