#PhotoWandering 8-29-14 End Of The New Begining

image

In the spring of 2014 I had a major event in my life end.  It freed me from a huge amount of responsibilities.  Not too long after that school ended and my kids no longer had to wake up early for school. I decided this would be an excellent time to refine my street and photography. The plan was to wake up as early as possible head to NYC and put to use all I’ve learned from reading about my photography heroes Jay Maisel and Fan Ho. I ended up finding my path in street photography.  It was a great journey.

For this last walk of the summer I decided to go to one of my favorite locations, Roosevelt Island. In the mornings it can be breath taking. I enjoy looking out on the water as the rising sun makes its appearance. Here is less about people and more about the landscape

The surface of a body of water ripples and changes as the sun rises. I have seen this so many times this summer and never get enough of it. That is what the other part of the summer. I started to do my best to find the right balance of light and shadow , to reflect what I saw. This was one of the many lessons that came my way this summer.

There are soo many ways to see Manhattan New York. I only scraped the surface. It was the most I’ve ever explored NYC. I do wish I could live there. Alas I can’t but I can keep exploring when I can.

NYC is forever evolving so it will never get boring. While there walk will happen less often. They will continue.  You really don’t notice this but you can see the entire world  in NYC. There is much more to see and so little time.
