New York Images

Okay, so I’ll be honest, New York had never really been on my travel bucket list. Until I met Andre! And then his bucket list kind of became my bucket list too!  One of his absolute dream destinations was to visit the Big Apple.  And of course I was not going to stay at home!

How guilty I felt when standing on top of the Empire State Building at sunset and thinking back to the day I made Andre put his New York Skyline print in the garage as it did not fit in with my “décor” scheme in our study (lol!) And here I was, not looking at that “unsightly” print banned to the corner of the garage. Instead I was actually seeing the REAL thing – probably a moment I will remember for a very long time.  I smiled to myself.

EVERYTHING you see in movies that are shot in New York is for real – NOT staged – yellow cabs, the subway, policemen eating “dogs,” skyscrapers, sirens, steam outlets and MORE!!!!! You literally feel as if you need to pick your jaw up from the sidewalk every now and again as you are gaping! The photographic possibilities are endless and we were able to capture so many of the iconic New York images.

One thing is for sure and that is 5 days in New York is way too short!  Good travel photography requires patience and time.

We had the most glorious Autumn weather during our stay and we packed us much as we could into every day, but sadly we did not get to everything we wanted to do, which means we are just going to have to take full advantage of our 10 year visa and go back sometime.

What would be the highlights – hard to say – there were so many – Grand Central, Times Square, walking down 5th Avenue, a picnic in Central Park, seeing Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ at MoMa, Empire State building at sunset – the list goes on…

I think this quote by Thomas Wolf pretty much sums it up…

One belongs to New York instantly. One belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.
