My husband and I just got back from a quick trip to NYC to visit our daughter who has been living out of "the big green suitcase" for the last year. She's currently working in New York, so we went up to spend some time with her and to enjoy the city. NYC really does have it all...great buildings, fabulous places to eat, wonderful hotels, shopping, etc. As they say "if you can't find it in New York it probably doesn't exist", very true.
One of my favorite things about NYC is the old against the new in terms of it's architecture. I shot hundreds of photos and won't be posting them all here (obviously!) but thought that I would share just a few favorites with you today......
|Old against new, I love that juxtaposition|
|View from Central Park|
|We took a romantic carriage ride through the park|
|You might not expect to see a sign like this in the middle of bustling NYC|
|I love fashion, and my daughter convinced me that the 3 1/2 hr wait to get into this show (she'd already been) was worth the wait. Really I just have one word for it, which is AWESOME|
|Fashion in every storefront window is beautifully displayed|
|I often had to scratch my head and ask myself "are we back in Paris"???|
|Amazing old church|
|I shot this in St Patrick's Cathedral|
|We stayed in Midtown Manhattan and often walked around the Upper East Side|
|Oh yes, we are not in Paris....but in NYC!|
|Well you KNOW that I had to do some flea markets|
|Again, NOT Paris....Bryant Park|
|The Diamond District and the Garment District were great people watching (& street photo shooting)|
|It's almost 10 years since 9/11.....remembering those who lost their lives|
I hope that you enjoyed my photos.
I'm working on some romantic new things for the website, so I'll be back soon to show you what I've been up to. Lots of love to all.....
