Black And Yellow

Any one hail a cab lately? The sea of yellow cabs in New York is quite the site. It is one of the first things to greet you leaving the airport.  Riding in one is like a roller coaster ride with no lap bar. I have never heard the horn of a vehicle used so often and not just by a cabby! I had no idea a car could fit into such small holes between other vehicles. What a ride! I should have bought the tee-shirt that stated " I survived a New York taxi cab ride!" Add a cab ride in New York City to your bucket list, it could be a thrill you will never forget.

On Top Of The World

Okay, not the top of the world, but a top the 86th floor of the Empire State Building. I believe we are looking west to New Jersey. This is an image I have wanted to capture as soon as I learned I would be going to New York. I  wanted it to be night time and have the city lights a glow, but there is so much to see and do in New York City that I'll take what I can get. Though, I now have an excuse to go again! The city is a great backdrop to a photographer even an amateur like myself. No wonder several movies and television show are shot there. Next time I hope to have more time to explore and capture the city they call The Big Apple.

Self Portrait

It was hanging in the Metropolitan Museum of Art for all of a second or two! This self portrait was done with the help of a British artist by the name of Anish Kapoor who was born in India. It is a sculpture made of stainless steel. Looks like a large satellite dish. Very cool and highly reflective. It is made up of hundreds of smaller discs. When I look at my reflection I am reminded of a macro photograph of a fly and it eyes. If you are ever in New York stop and visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Be sure to give yourself most of the day to visit, there is lots to see and experience.
