Skyscraper

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.

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.
