Intoxicating. Overwhelming. Majestic. Bustling. Loud. Colourful. Dirty. Spectacular. Brash. Vibrant.
To me, these are all words that describe New York City. It’s everything a city could possibly be in so many ways, and making your way through Manhattan can be a journey not just of miles, but of many emotions. If I’m honest, sometimes I loved it and sometimes I really didn’t like it at all. But still it intrigues me.
In this post, I’ve tried to strip the city of all the noise, to pare it back to its bones so I can try to appreciate its beauty in a different way. And here’s what I’ve come up with; a series of photos in black and white.
I hope you like them.
Now I know my photography is a work in progress; I think it always will be, and I’ve upgraded my camera since this trip because I felt I couldn’t do enough with my little point and shoot. But still, I’d love to know which photo is your favourite.
