New York City street photography is some of my favorite photography. This past weekend Staci and I made a quick trip to NYC to visit with a friend and gather images for my new book Travel and Street Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots. I’m always amazed at how large New York City is compared to Chicago and even how much faster the pace feels. We spent four days and walked nearly 55 miles (or so my Fitbit pedometer claims!) as we explored Brooklyn, Harlem, and everything in between. Here are a few of my favorite images from the trip. More to come later but I’m on deadline for a chapter!
Sunrise at the Brooklyn Bridge is magnificent and my favorite part of this image was the shadow of the street lamp at the very end of the walk way that lined up with the white line. I use symmetry a lot in my images, and I especially seek it out for these quiet moments when life seems to be in balance.
Approaching people on the streets of New York City can be very intimidating, but as the adage goes…”Ask not, get not!” Eat your heart out Bill Cunningham. 🙂
I spent a good part of the trip visiting with a friend in East Harlem and fell in love with the people and the area. This is one of the eclectic street murals that adorned many of the older buildings in the area.
That’s it for now, I’m on deadline for a chapter in a new book (soon to be announced). As always, if you love street photography as much as I do then check out my Street Photography eBook.
