Developing film a few months after shooting it is like revisiting trips and have those “Oh yeah I took that…”. The trip to New York back in December was a nice little trip but found that it was very crowded back at that time of the year. I brought a film and a digital camera with me but I wish I brought just one as I was going back and forth with them.

Manhattan from Staten Island Ferry

Seeing Manhattan from the Staten Ferry, which is free, is pretty cool. The ferry is free unlike the one going the the Statue of Liberty and you get some great views of the island. It boards 24 hrs a day every 30 minutes.

Rockefeller at Christmas

I went a few weeks ago to New York City for the weekend. It was Christmas time and really crowded but I enjoyed my stay. The bus round trip was $50 which is great considering what gas and tolls are. You can see the tree right at the bottom. It’s a tall tree but looks smaller next to bigger buildings.

World Trade Center Reflection

Walking in New York City down in Lower Manhattan stands the newer tower; One World Trade Center or Freedom Tower. It is the tallest in the country and is a lovely building standing next the the reflection pools and the museum for 9/11. I noticed that the reflection was easy to see in the glass on the museum of the Freedom Tower and so I captured this photograph.

Cloudy New York

I’m going through some of the photographs that I took on my trip to New York City and I noticed that since it was my first time there I wasn’t taking a lot of good photos but just typical tourist pictures with my sister. I did take a few where I took my time but we were on the move trying to get a visit of the city in 1.5 days. I feel like I did a pretty good job but I missed out on museums and other activities. I still want to see a lot of architecture as there are some amazing tall and older buildings in the city. The skyline is great and just shows that there is a lot more to look forward to when I can get back there to visit.
