Ride Along on Part Two of Our Photographic Tour of New York City

 

If you saw Part One in our New York City Photographic Tour, you already know that I consider NYC my home away from home. I’ve been to the city at least a dozen times and it’s never the same trip twice. Today I’d like to share a few more of the many photos I have taken there.

New York City: An Amateur Photographer’s Dream!

You’ve seen the iconic photos of the New York City skyline. But, step into Central Park and capture another view entirely!

Central Park, in Spring, is verdant and alive. Couples stroll, hand in hand, toward nowhere in particular.

There’s Another Side to New York That Photographers Love to Capture…The Unexpected Side!

Unique Architecture! Aside from the typical Art Deco influence in NYC, diverse cultures have lent an exotic feel to the otherwise structured skyline.

After a day spent walking and snapping photos, who couldn’t use a peaceful nap in the shade? Yes, New York City even has that.

      Thanks, Margherita :) That dollar hat is going to be the next major trend, I just know it. ;P

    I enjoyed your pictures from NYC a lot especially the old woman with the red and white bag. Wasn´t there yet but hopefully soon.

    I’ve only been to New York once, a long time ago, but I remember it being full of unexpected things (and people). A great place for people watching and, as you say, that makes for great photos!

      Thanks, Tam. I sort of new how I wanted to portray that one right from the start. The treatment actually came quite naturally (for once…lol).

    Stunning photos as always! I love that you are showing a different side to the city, not the usual viewpoints. You seriously do have talent!

    I definitely have travel ADHD. I love New York but I can oly take it in small doses as there is so much to see.

      Thanks, Angela. I enjoy capturing the true “personality” of all of NYC as opposed to what tourists are presented with, from time to time. So glad you enjoy that! I really appreciate your feedback. :)

    That pic at the end of the post is perfect. It’s a photogenic city, but you definitely captured an individual element. Lovely post!

    • Reply Erin

      Thanks, Dave. I, personally, like that photo best. I’m so glad you think so. Thank you for taking the time to stop in & comment. :)

    I went to NYC with my uni class while I was studying photography, and it is definitely an amateur photographer’s dream! Some awesome shots here!

    I’d love to visit New York one of these days but fear that no matter how long I have it wont be enough – maybe I just need to move here for a bit :) I think a photo tour is a must in a city like this – great post!

    I really enjoyed both collections of NYC photos! They are not the typical photos you think of for NYC and I think that’s why they are so beautiful! I especially love the one taken in Central Park!

    Great photos Erin! Love what you did with the colors on the last photo. Spanky is from NY and although we’ve wanted to, we haven’t made it there in almost 8 years. When we do we’ll make sure to take a walk in Central Park!

    Remind me to never fall asleep in public when Erin’s around. :) Just kidding. If you have a flickr account, search around for a group called ‘Sleeping in Public’. Or maybe it was ‘Day Sleepers’. Some fun stuff.

    I especially love the picture of Central Park! So inviting and peaceful amidst the hectic activity of New York City, seems surreal.

    • Reply Erin

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, JP :) I always make a point of spending at least a day strolling through the parks on each trip to NYC. You’re right, it’s a great break from all the hubbub…and you never know what you’ll see. Thanks for checking it out :)
