The Manhattan Skyline

The Manhattan Skyline.
 
So this is my third trip to NYC in the past 5 years or so, and it marked many first for me. Yesterday I had my first bagel and coffee from a street vendor. Good stuff, I know there is better in the city though at some of the deli’s, but I was in a rush. I also took my first ride on a subway train. During the ride back, I got to listen to a traveling piano man on the train who supported his piano around his neck with RG59 cable and duct tape. Actually he was very entertaining. I saw the Statue of Liberty for the first time. Awesome, even from the distance I saw her. I saw the Brooklyn Bridge for the first time. And I photographed the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn! I had been scouting images for a while in hopes to go shoot it this trip. So along with some of the folks from Sirui and a couple other friends, we made our way over to the Promenade Park and to the pylons near the piers. I was mesmerized just seeing the incredible view that was before me. It is a great thing to see and such a iconic image of what makes America.

    Lovely shot of the Manhattan skyline at night from Bear Woods. The long exposure work done beautifully, the old pier posts leading the eye into the image. I’m jealous. 😉
