New York

In July I went to New York for just over a week. I love cities and really there's nowhere that makes me feel as good as i do in New York. I wanted to spend my week with headphones on and my camera in my hand.

I spent the first couple of days taking just touristy type shots of the buildings and things like that and I thought they were a bit boring. I wanted to be able to take some photos that conveyed what it's like to walk through New York. I changed how i was taking photos and tried not to think too much about what i was doing and just shoot a lot.

New York was also where i bought my 50mm f1.8 lens and I'm really glad i did.

I was taking some photographs in Time Square one night when i noticed this kid slowly standing in my view, he then proceeded to wave and trying to get my attention. He stopped me and asked if I'd take a photo of him jumping. It was probably one of the highlights of my week.

The full set of photos (and at a larger size) can be seen here
