New York City skyline at night

Monday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!!!!

I was out in New York City a few weeks ago for a very quick photo shoot. It was the first time that I had been in NYC in over 45 years, so it’s been awhile!!! We had a great shoot for the client and that always makes you feel good! One of the other things that I always like to do as well is to get a night shot of a city skyline if possible. Sometimes things don’t work out and stuff comes up and you just can’t work it in, but that wasn’t the case for this night shot. We had a perfect location for a shot of the NYC skyline and the weather cooperated as well. Knowing that we had everything in place for a good photo, I felt pretty confident that we would come away with something good! Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed with the results!

One of the other things that I was able to do as well besides the panoramic skyline photo was a time-lapse of the sun going down and the lights of the city coming up! Here’s a link for that time-lapse on YouTube and you’ll really like this!!!

Here’s my panoramic image of the New York City skyline at night. You’re look at Manhattan and the financial district on the left along with the Brooklyn Bridge and on the right of the photo is the Manhattan Bridge.

Thanks for checking out my work this week and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!! 🙂

No words!

Monday morning greetings from New York City!

I’m out East for a quick gig this week in New York City. We got in on Sunday and had some time to walk around and see the city. I think the last time I was here was 45 years ago, so it’s been awhile. Getting out and walking across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn was pretty neat and to see everyone out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon was pretty good! There was a lot of activity and people were out enjoying the wonderful weather and enjoying life.

The hotel that we are staying at is in the financial district of the city and we are about five blocks from ground zero. On Sunday night we walked over to see the 9/11 memorial. I don’t think I could come to the city and not get over to see it. There really aren’t any words that can describe the area and the memorial. For someone like me that’s not from the city, it’s not like I can come to the memorial and remember what different buildings were there before the attacks. To me the memorial is a place of solitude and remembrance! I hope it is a place that people will visit and never forget what happened there on September 11, 2001.

Here’s a few of my snaps from the 9/11 memorial in New York City. In the vertical shot you can see the new Freedom Tower in the background of the 9/11 memorial.

Thanks so much for taking the time to view my work and it’s very much appreciated by me!
