Empire Pizza

Twenty Four

This was taken after we had been to the top of the Empire State Building. We were heading towards the Flatiron Building (see previous post). However, on the way be bought a delicious pizza from a 7/11 store. Not the Empire Pizza. It was delicious. We ate it in a small park with the Flatiron Building before us and the Empire State behind us. Perfect.

Another photo using the Nikon D610. Nothing fancy, just a holiday snap.

This is The Flatiron Building, originally the Fuller Building. It is located at 175 Fifth Avenue in the borough of Manhattan, New York City. Not the most obvious angle from which it is photographed. There are two reasons for this. [1] the sun was directly at me shining down Fifth Avenue so the light was not great for capturing detail, and [2] what’s wrong with being different.

As you can see, the sun was out. It was bright but a bit cool [but slowly warming up]. This was taken after we had been to the top of the Empire State Building.

Broadway Polo #2

Nineteen

Well, you’ve seem a busy hat shop, now here’s a busy shirt shop. It’s the same shop as in my last post.

Broadway Polo #2

Each wall was covered with shirts. Not the best composition but, for me, a fun holiday snap.

Hats for the last post. This time it’s polo shirts. This time my mum was on a shopping spree. This was during one of our night time trips into Broadway. I also have a photo of the actual racks head on so it looks more like my hats shot. However, I liked this shot as it was full of people. In fact, the shop was very busy even though it was about 10 pm.

This photo, like my last Broadway shot, was taken with my dad’s Olympus camera with the fish eye. Great for tight spots like this shop. Thinking about posting at least one more proper Broadway shot. I’m quite busy at the moment as exams are coming up. So at least it easier not having to take photos at the moment and having so many holiday photos.

Broadway, NYC

This is Broadway. Broadway itself is very, very long. This is the bit that most people think of. Where all the theatre shows and cinema films happen.

I loved Broadway. It was about 15 minutes walk from our hotel and we came here at least half of our nights in New York. I liked the lights, the buzz of the crowds and that many shops were open very late.

Both my dad and I took photos here. We brought his Olympus as neither of us wanted to carry anything bigger or heavier.

Project 52: Week 52

Looking Up

So this is officially week 52.

Trip into London. The title and photos say it all. I’ll put some more up from this trip later.

OK, so we have a p.s. situation here. I have just processed another image. Well, just tweaked the colour to give it a reddish tinge which hopefully gives it a bit of a retro look. As we all know this is the current look! This time of the view just to the right of the SIS Building (that’s the MI6 building) with Vauxhall Bridge to the left. I took this just after we had been to the Tate Modern. I’ve got photos of that also so stayed tuned.

Vauxhall Bridge

I love the effect the fish eye has given the photo.
