28 Jul Photographing New York City

New York City.   NYC.  The Big Apple.  The City That Never Sleeps.  The Empire City.  It doesn’t matter what you call it, there is no arguing the fact that New York truly is one of the greatest cities in the world.   It has beautiful architecture, it is rich in the arts, the people are amazing, and it holds a significant place on the world stage.  On a personal note New York holds a special place in my heart because it was where I honeymooned after getting married and, having spent a long time working as a paramedic, I feel a connection to the events of 9/11 and the brethren I lost that day when they were working to save people in the World Trade Center towers.

I know that it has been two weeks since I last posted on this site, but that is because I just returned from another trip to New York where I spent a lot of time shooting, showing the city to family that had never been there before, and visiting friends.  This post is part one of a new five part series featuring photography from New York City:
