Here is something that I did as an experiment. Walking in New York city, I felt as if I was constantly walking into a crowd. I was disoriented, and adrift from my family, since I was behind my lens.
I was in constant motion and tried to capture this with my camera….How did I DO?
Boston->New York City->Rochester->Ithaca->New Hampshire->Boston
Street photography is an interesting endeavor, and, New York City the perfect place to practice. Usually I have my giant Canon 5d mark iii with me. It’s big, clunky and heavy, not very stealth! We were on the move, and I wanted to travel light. I recently purchased a compact camera, and thought it would be great for capturing those quick uncomposed shots. Here is my attempt at street photography.

All this pictures were taken with the Panasonic dmc-lx7, shot on manual, jpgs mode and tweaked in camera raw.

We went to New York City and stayed in the Battery Park area…here is the view from my perspective 🙂
We are lucky enough to live a fairly close to one of my favorites cities, New York. It’s just a 3.5-4 hour car drive, provided there is no traffic!
If you have been following this blog, you know that the I have taken many pictures of my favorite ICONIC building. This really isn’t a writing blog, but I did write a blog about it in 2009. Here is a link to it Blog entry.
By the way…I have been talking about the Chrysler Building!

I just was going over my New York City pictures from last month and noticed that the pictures I took at the New York Public Library have a lot of similarities to the Boston Public Library.
I suggest you click on the pictures to see them full size.
Do you agree? I’d love to know what do you think?
The neon lights in Time Square never get old!
No matter how many times a I goes to New York City, I always see something in a new way.
We stayed in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. The Flatiron Building, Empire State Building and Chrysler Building are all in walking distance.
My daughter had an appointment and I waited for her on the closed sidewalk on Broadway and 22cnd. On our walk back to the hotel we spotted a crowd in front of Union Square. How lucky we were to Zac Efron (what a cutie) getting ready to shoot a scene for his new movie.
Here are some familiar pictures from a new perspective.
