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.

The Flatiron Building

Twenty Three

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.

Statue of Liberty

Twenty Two

I suppose almost every one recognises the Statue of Liberty. So this photo does not really need a title.

When we set of on the ferry it was quite hazy but warmish. But as the day progressed the temperature warmed up nicely and visibility improved.

Brooklyn Bridge

Twenty One

A view of the Brooklyn Bridge from a point of view that we don’t always see.

I wanted to focus on the cables and Manhattan. I might post one with the main columns another time.

Broadway Polo

Eighteen

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.

Empire State Building Night View

Thirteen

Another view from the Empire State Building, but this time at night. The ticket we had allowed us to revisit the building in the evening. As the morning queue was to long and slow we had decided not to return. But when the evening came, we hoped that the queues would be shorter. We got there about 9pm. Yes, the queues were better and faster but we still spent well over an hour waiting.

However, we decided that this was probably the last time we would go up (even if we returned to NYC) it was worth the effort. And I guess it was. However, it ha got really cold and my hands got cold holding the camera. I took a good couple of dozen photos and then my dad had it for the rest of the time!
