New York in Color

June 06, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Visited New York for a few days to help my daughter move into a NYU dorm.  She landed a summer internship at a well known fashion design house so we packed and made our way to this great city.  It was cold and rainy but that didn’t matter – you just gotta love New York!  I didn’t expect to have much time for Photography so I left my 5DMkII and army of lenses at home and took my Fuji X100 instead.  With my ultimate street warrior, I was able to capture a few interesting shots of the Big Apple on the last day of the trip.

I couldn’t resist the B&W conversion – the clouds were perfect!  By the way, I must have walked the length of a marathon over 4 days!

Here are a few shots of the fabled Brooklyn Bridge.

The Freedom Tower.  The spirit lives on…

There’s still a dark cloud over the site but life manages to prevail…

The 9/11 Memorial entrance.  Set the X100 on a temporary wall, put on a polarizer, activated the neutral density filter, and stopped the lens all the way down to f/16 to produce a long exposure to create the blur effect of the line of visitors. 

9/11 feels like a blur…

Life underground…

Reflections of New York…

Times Square.  Gotta love the huge billboard ads!

Always looking for symmetry and it always manages to find me even when I’m not looking!

Amazing Architecture…yesterday next to today...

Pastels in the Village…

Can't leave out the graffiti...
