So after what has become quite the busy year for our humble little video production business (I’m not complaining), I was finally able to sneak the family up to New York City for for a long overdue “vacation”. My wife and I were both raised in NYC (da Bronx) so when we make the trip up from South Florida (where we currently reside), it’s also about visiting family. We were, however, able to find enough time to enjoy a small portion of what this great city has to offer with visits to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Washington Square Park, Wave Hill, Central Park and our very first visit to Citi Field (we’re both long-suffering Mets fans).
Now I might be a multiple award winning filmmaker (humblebrag?) but I’m really just a wannabe photographer. Whenever I travel, I make sure to bring along my trusty Panasonic Lumix GH2 (yeah I know about the GH4 – don’t need one just yet) and my Olympus M Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 lens (and an 8mm fisheye for when the time calls for one). For someone who shoots video most of the time, taking photographs has become a very enjoyable little hobby of mine and unlike shooting video – it doesn’t feel like “work”, you know?
So here are a few choice images from my trip to The Big Apple in glorious black and white – I’ll post another set of images tomorrow. Oh, and it so happens to be World Photography Day today so why not grab a camera and go shoot something?
