We were tired by mid day after the boat tour, and the Starbucks located nearby was truly a saviour. Here’s my mom in the foreground and a baby sound asleep in the background.
Testing out my Canon 50mm f1.2 lens pre focused at the postcard stand yielded pretty pleasing results! The nightlife of New York CIty is certainly one to behold.
Broad Street is flooded with humongous sized cinema screens which show different advertisements. There was one particular screen which displayed a video of the passers-by, and i couldn’t be more amused by their different reactions.
Love and Bokeh.
Looking at this image just makes me wonder how i captured this shot then under poor lighting conditions with my Epson R-D1 hmm. You don’t see a man carrying a giant banana around any other day!
A reflection of my mom against the background lights outside the window where we were having dinner.
Stop signs here are different from back home. Given the number of streets one has to cross just to get from place to place, jaywalking becomes commonplace. Here’s an experienced NYC dweller showing you how to do it like a boss :D
An old woman struggling to keep up along Chinatown. This picture seems to signify the struggles which the older generation face today.
The famous bull of Wall Street which signifies aggression, prosperity and optimism.
Peaceful protesters outside Trinity Church, one of the most prosperous churches in NYC. They were unfortunately denied entry into the church despite the vacant space available, sparking off criticisms against the church. This group was singing songs and a crowd soon gathered and joined in.
Every city has its fair share of people who have fallen through the cracks and are often forgotten. This homeless couple seeks refuge in an abandoned house. I gave some small change and asked for a picture in which the guy agreed. However a passerby hissed at me for taking such a picture. Such is the risk when such photographs are taken.
On my way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, i came across this guy and his dressing caught my attention. When i sat down next to him, he complimented my shoes before i even said hi. Took a picture, shook a hand and made a new friend :)
Solemn silence during Christmas.
Is art that difficult to understand?
An artist replicating the painting Remembrant. The woman in the background painting doesnt seem impressed, however.
Caught in the Middle.
For those who are given the opportunity of going to New York, do not hesitate to pick it up! I’ve definitely enjoyed myself here even though i hoped to stay longer… There’s just so much to capture and if you’re a street photographer, you’ll not be disappointed :)
