NYC Day Three | Black, White & Night

Anyone who has ever tried street photography, 

As in, with your arm down at your side, or sitting in your lap. Bump up that shutter speed, slap on a wide and go (on silent shutter) -- people don't stiffen up when you aim at them, and even if they're looking at you, they're not looking at the camera and are a ton more relaxed and interesting.   And yes, it was partly because I was cold and lazy...and oddly obsessed with the photos that turned out, which on a wide angle, turned out to be more rather than less.

You're not looking for perfection, you're snapping up an essence; a scent to bring out when you're missing it. 

These are from our last day in New York. We spent it down in Greenwich Village and since I'm always a sucker for the classic black and white, all those B&W are from earlier in the day. Later, we headed down past the WTC building to Brooklyn for some Ignazio's Pizza (compliments of Marca's suggestion), and skyline shots. Those, I obviously brought up to my eye. But still -- those freestyle street shots are worth a try. Tellin' ya. Try it. Do it.

It's been good New York! Now back to life :)


  1. Wow, loved these!!! For some reason the second one on your post has something that I love. Aaaaaand I want the skyline for my desktop picture, those are awesome! I'll definitely do it :). Take care girl! -Dania :)

    1. Haha I'll be honest, the first two, I just sat and stared at for a while to try to figure out what I liked so much about them -- they're my favorite :) The 2nd one just has the look of a New Yorker, to me -- lol, at least from a Southerner's point of view. Lol, and let me know which one, and I'll email it to you!
