Years ago, I read somewhere New York is the most photographed city in the world. No wonder about it. New York could not be beaten as the undisputed capital of the world in many regards, though is not even capital of its country, the USA. From Wall Street’s high finance to some of the most famous Art museums in the world, like MoMa or the Met, from the stunning and iconic architecture of its skyscrapers and bridges to its incomparable street life, it’s all here in New York.
Every single corner of this American metropolis truly offers plenty of photographic opportunities: yellow cabs, one way street signs, the Empire State Buildings, the changing color trees of Central Park in autumn, Times Square’s night lights, Fifth Avenue’s foot traffic just to name a few iconic samples. You can spend weeks in the Big Apple and still keep shooting different photos every day because you never get bored of this photographic urban laboratory. There’s always something new to shoot here including some new innovative architecture adds like the stunning Santiago Calatrava’s Oculus transportation terminal hub or the brand new Hudson Yards’ real estate development complex with their amazing Vessel honeycomb-like modern structure. New York has many virtues and you can really feel the energy this metropolis offers in every its single square meter. That’s why I am always extremely happy whenever I have a flight ticket with destination New York in my hand. Enjoy this New York photo gallery from my latest photographic journey in the Big Apple.
