walk on BY

Last week we celebrated my mother in laws 91st birthday.

We went to The Mercer Kitchen a Jean-George Restaurant located on Prince Street in The Mercer Hotel.  When I walked toward our table I heard a thumping above my head.  I realized it was people walking by us, overhead.  Lucky I had my camera with me.

new york city DREAMING

Here is something that I did as an experiment.  Walking in New York city, I felt as if I was constantly walking into a crowd.  I was disoriented, and adrift from my family, since I was behind my lens.

I was in constant motion and tried to capture this with my camera….How did I DO?

nyc-gramercy PARK

No matter how many times a I goes to New York City, I always see something in a new way.

We stayed in the Gramercy Park neighborhood.  The Flatiron Building, Empire State Building and Chrysler Building are all in walking distance.

My daughter had an appointment and I waited for her on the closed sidewalk on Broadway and 22cnd.  On our walk back to the hotel we spotted a crowd in front of Union Square.  How lucky we were to Zac Efron (what a cutie) getting ready to shoot a scene for his new movie.

Here are some familiar pictures from a new perspective.
