These old ships are docked at the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan. There are not too many places you can see these but this is one of them. It reminded me of Boston harbor only this is New York. My guess is that a hundred years ago the scene wasn’t much different. My how times have changed, …except for here.
Another shot of of the sunset at Robert F. Wagner park in lower Manhattan. It was such an idyllic setting that I took a tonne of pictures from every angle. This was one of the last shots as the sun when down and right after this Scott and I turned around and grabbed a table at an Italian restaurant with this very same view.
This has got to be one of the funnest places to be on a Friday night. I took this around midnight and the amount of electricity and energy was amazing. Now looking back it struck me that there is a similarity in the composition to a church. I’m not making a statement, just an observation.
This is just north of Battery Park and probably one of the best places in lower Manhattan to watch a sunset. There is a grass lawn, wide benches, and nice little Italian restaurant just below here where you can forget for a minute that you are in a big city. After my friend Scott and I finished taking pictures we had dinner here and then headed up to midtown to check that out as well. There just wasn’t enough time in the day to do everything we wanted to do, but this was probably the highlight of what we did manage to see.
The scene from Battery Park in lower Manhattan.
I passed this wall art in lower Manhattan and thought the shadows added a different dimension to the art. That’s the thing about street art, the environment plays a role in the telling of the story. In this case, at least for me, the shadows and light transformed the art into something completely new. How cool is that?
I was walking with some friends towards a diner for breakfast and just randomly looked up. I thought this view was cool and I almost lost track of my group as I lingered for this shot. There are a lot of places like this in the city. I think it would be a fun project to shoot this perspective from different locations all over Manhattan. So maybe perhaps this is the first of a series, just maybe.
On a recent Saturday morning in lower Manhattan I noticed this gentleman meditating in a park. Boy, if I could meditate in the middle of a busy park in Manhattan, well, that would be something. Anyway, there was ancient Chinese music being played nearby, people singing, talking and all manner of activity and he was sitting there meditating right in the middle of it. I couldn’t resist capturing a photo yet given everything else going on I doubt he even noticed.
Fulton Station is in downtown New York. There are several entrances and this seems newer than the rest. While on a photowalk we were suppose to meet some people near here and while we walked inside to get a few shots of the architecture. Just one of a million locations to shoot in Manhattan.
